    ROB2k68 Lapiz R Collection & Build thread

    When my thermostat housing when on the cupra I could smell coolant in the cab first. Keep sniffing when you get in the car. 😂

    GTI PP vs R

    I couldn't justify going for that PP deal when my R Lease which I cancelled was £280inc Vat 8k miles. UK Central Leasing that was through.

    Can you drive on the road like this. Like a Gti without a differential?

    MPG (yes this again, but slightly different)

    This thread has made me feel much happier. I'm still shocked at the difference between the cupra and the R but happy that there isn't an issue with the car. It's nice to know if you do have to do a boring motorway grind it doesn't have to cost you anywhere near as much as the fun drives!
  6. Welcome to the world of German auto boxes where they know better than you. I'll be getting mine mapped when the Warrenty is up.

    And it's your last paragraph that may be vw's downfall. If you look on trust pilot their reviews are garbage. It's a company that seems to be heading down the pan rapidly. I know after my treatment I'll be looking else where for my next car.

    Totally see your point of view. What if something breaks that has nothing to do with the modification but you don't want the complications of a Warrenty refusal due to the mod as a get out of jail free card played by vw. My dealings with VW have left me in utter dismay with the company and have zero trust in them. Let's not kid ourselves VW are not squeaky clean and have committed fraud themselves.. Don't feel sorry for them.

    What do you dislike about your R?

    I've not had any issues with it on the 7-Speed it seems relatively smooth.

    What do you dislike about your R?

    The fact if I'm driving in Eco the suspension is set to normal not comfort. I paid for dcc I want to use it. The fact that when I start the car again in eco the gearbox is in normal not eco. The fact if I set eco under custom drive profile the gearbox will not coast.

    Exact same thing happened to me..

    The only codes that could be meaningfully cleared would be those showing sensor unplugged while ECU powered on.

    Yes I think I could get about that on a similar trip. Thanks that's really useful. So it the dsg making the difference. I wonder if the Cupra was reading wrong? Saying that the cupra did seem to use less fuel in general. I absolutely love the golf though its ace!

    Interesting.. I'll grab my 🍿 They are sold as untraceable if all error codes are removed prior to dealer visit.

    I did 20K in my manual cupra and didn't even have clutch slip!
