  1. Your situation is not particular to you, a few of us have been waiting over 12 months for our cars now! ๐Ÿ™‚ We are all in the same boat and you just need to be patient.
  2. That doesnโ€™t sound great. Sounds like a day in the dealer workshop to fix it. ๐Ÿ˜ž
  3. It's ironic that this new OTA software update designed to fix the bugs and gremlins in fact causes a bloody big gremlin in itself! Typical. ๐Ÿ™„
  4. i looked them up last night. They seem to have stuck tape on the logo or photoshopped it. Probably for copyright reasons. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003020405970.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.d9bc1802DN4Jal
  5. Yes agreed. No reason to up the power at this stage. For the MK7 its was the 7.5 that got the upgrade in power, probably to re-ignite sales again.
  6. Yes agreed, they look very good and one of the best mods Iโ€™ve seen for the R that doesnโ€™t look like something too out of place. Very OEMโ€ฆ. ๐Ÿ‘
  7. Its a good point. And a year or two down the line when the car battery isn't at its best (Becs has already had a replacement in less than 12 months) then its a risk with the large file OTA updates.
  8. And specially designed so its scratches easier. ๐Ÿ˜
  9. Any lag can be got rid of by fitting a pedal box (certainly on the 7R). But I think most have said you don't really need it on the 8R. Is this still the case Becca?
  10. It can take as long as it likes, provided they are fixing bugs! But thanks for posting this info.... this really is a game changer regarding getting bugs fixed quicker and not having to go to the dealer. Although for new, undiscovered bugs, a dealer trip would be necessary of course. They cant fix new bugs that no-one has not yet pointed out to them!
  11. Interesting that these updates are usually "a day at the dealers" - or so customers are being told. When in fact they are being done in half an hour! If this is the case it's a massive step forward to enable software gremlins to be fixed. Maybe VW were getting so many complaints about software issues that they feel they had to implement OTA updates to relieve dealers from doing them.
  12. Looking good camel. ๐Ÿ‘ A definite improvement on ride height. Not sure what it is with BMW these days but all their cars sit far too high. I had an E90 13 years ago and that was fine, but ever since the F3x came out 10 years ago their ride height as stock is pants and needs sorting.
  13. Looking around on other forums the pattern for VW to bring out a facelift is 4 years after a model is launched. So that would be 2023 but probably 2024 for the Mk 8.5 to arrive. But yes, if your build week is August you should get a new model year car which often has a few very minor tweaks (or remove stuff in the case of last years model year change ๐Ÿ˜ก ).
  14. That's because the 2017 R is overpriced! Shop around for a cheaper better spec'd R, then you won't be so confused as to which car to go for. ๐Ÿ˜‰
