  1. Cleaning along edges of rear hatch and piece of rubber snapped off from the inner edge of boot lid below VW sign. Looks like there is a rubber hose on the inside of the boot lid. I am assuming this is some sort of drain hose from the rear water pump? Is this the case? Cheers
  2. First though would be problem with Haldex system.
  3. DSG gearbox is still great bit of gear but there is room for improvement with a DSG tune. Paddles let you operate like a manual so best of both worlds and drops down and up for you slowing down and redlining.
  4. Enjoy. Once you drive a DSG you won't go back to manual. If you like being quick off the mark there is no competition.
  5. Go for Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Not cheap but best gripping tyre I have ever had fitted.
  6. Forgot to enter my message above. But the message is always pays to do your research before buying a car. If it seems too good to be true it normally is!!!

    Gap insurance

    Used both ALA and Total loss Gap before. Total loss Gap was cheaper but ALA gets a lot better reviews. Never had to use it fortunately. Audi use Premia Solutions for their GAP insurance at £499.
  8. Change to Michelin Pilot Sports will make big difference to the handling. Had Pirelli P1's on my RS4 and got rid of them and replaced with Michelin Pilot Sports and made a huge difference. Got Pirelli's on my Golf R and will be replacing them with the same.
  9. Might have to replace the actuator. Had to replace on Audi A3 as well, slightly different fuel flap but same actuator.
  10. Been driving B7 RS4 for last 5 years so wanted 4 wheel drive replacement. Was looking for a daily driver which the RS4 wasn't used as and was between Golf R, Audi S3 saloon or older Audi RS3. Audi RS3 ridiculously quick but didn't think I could live with it as a daily driver so was between the other two. Struggled to get the spec on the Audi S3 so went for the Golf. With little bit of tuning expecting to get similar performance to RS3 but with a bit more comfort and toys.
  11. Michelin Pilot Sports
  12. Despite the cars having same drivetrain I feel the Golf R drives that little bit better for some reason. Personally I love Sepang Blue S3 saloon which has the slight edge on my Lapiz Blue Golf R. I went for the Golf as I was struggling to find Sepang Blue S3 saloon with the spec I have in the Golf such as virtual dash. Not a lot between them but everyone will have their own opinion.
  13. Another vote for Collinite. I use 476 for the body and 845 for the wheels. Really good finish with very little buffing required. Have used 845 on the bodywork and it is great too.
  14. I would take it to a recommended Specialist rather than main dealer. Have still to find a main dealer for any car I have owned that I would recommend!!!!
