  1. https://youtu.be/9N0DBsboSRk Another one with a little video at littco
  2. Couldn't agree more, there is a time and a place for speed
  3. I'm sure it has the right fuel as when the 98 octane map was put on, there was no timing pull at all
  4. Don't want to make this a long post, so I will keep it short. When in to awesome today for a haldex service and stage 1 low torque map. They took the car out pre map to do logs to make sure all OK. Came back and said that the car had timing pull of up to 5 degrees and questioned if I was using 99 Ron fuel, which I was. They said it could be the standard map from factory that could be the issue. So they flashed the 98 Ron stage 1 file, back out for more logs and 0 degrees timing pull across the rev range. Just goes to show that factory or standard isn't always best. Cars a 2017 plate mk7 Estate, no time for dyno figures so no before and after. Night and day difference as you can guess though. 👍 Incidentally, cars oil is cooler now as well by 8 degrees C, not sure why as of yet?
  5. So if you don't have keyless entry, does it make more sense to spend the £399 cost of supply and fit on home security, ie better locks on all doors and windows. As most car theft is time sensitive for the thief, surely delaying getting hold of the keys from a house will be just as good??
  6. I guess the trip mileage will reset if the battery was disconnected, which is normal when doing body repair. Wouldn't change your actual mileage though.
  7. Less that £200 twice yearly at somewhere like awesome. Cheap for peace of mind really.
  8. Good point, should reword to say how often haldex kicks in. So if you drive like miss daisy and do motorway miles, then not that much at all.
  9. It's probably got to do with how many times the clutch pack has had to engage. Ie on launches or booting it on a wet road.
