  1. Jenson Meldrew chipping into this thread. Until last night I was member of the UK MK7 R owners FB page, of which I had been a member of for the last year or so. Incredulous at the number of increasing posts from the ‘how loud can I make my car in Mexico’ posts was beginning to make my blood boil. [emoji6] I’ll not be missed and not miss the group. Tiny little rant over. I’ll go put the kettle on. J. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The plan I have in place if this is to happen to me: I’ll be selling the three remaining Prets and funding the difference , around £200-£300, in buying a set of Racingline R360’s. [emoji7] J Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. OK, so this is a little embarrassing... back in early December I had a battery changed under warrantee. What I didn't realise was that it must have reset PB to it's 'stock mode' and it's been set as such - until today. Done the calibration routine, set it back to 'City 0' and went for a drive, had forgot what a difference it makes. I'll run on City 0 for the next week or so then up a level to 'Sport' and see how get on. J
  4. I’m City green 0 also. Didn’t get on with the box to start with but wouldn’t be without it now. Reading this thread has prompted me to up a notch and try the next setting. J. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Been looking for an 8" Screen and facia for a while now. Finally managed to pick one up. 20 minute job to fit and money well spent. J
  6. As with you, my wash routine starts with a jet wash/snow foam/jetwash then on to a shampoo. Don't have experience of the BH or VP you mention but have become a fan of the DoDo juice range. Can Highly recommend the Born to be Mild - pH-neutral maintenance shampoo in this respect. It's a highly concentrated so need very little product and smear free. J.
  7. 4 x Michelin PS4s fitted at Costco and had my son pick up my Hex-V2 VCDS cable in Florida. Soundaktor to 0% is the first mod I'll be making this weekend. J
  8. Took me nearly three months to find/get the colour and spec that I wanted. I’m impatient also but consider the wait a factor in finding used vs speccing a car from new as you wish. Good luck on your quest =o) J Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Common issue if you google. Hopefully you’re under warranty as it’s a replacement switch in the DSG box and prop shaft needs dropping to access. J Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. This is a good idea, I did the same with my RRS rear light clusters when they were being nicked weekly. It’s a 2 min job with minimal cost and whilst not completely foolproof will hinder the feckers for sure. J. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Rebecca, even the boot of your car looks spotless and brand new.=o) I gave mine a cursory hoover out today and now feel guilty for doing 1/2 a job. Please stop posting pics, you're killing me. J. =o)
  12. I've got a weathertech boot liner and am a big fan. They're custom shaped specifically and have a 25mm lip all around , saving from any spills. Highly recommend. https://www.weathertecheurope.com/uk/volkswagen/2017/golf-r/cargo-liner/ J.

  14. And suffer the wrath of SHMBO when she breaks a nail trying to open the door when you've not double clicked.. Been there, done that, won't do it again ;o)
  15. Just a note to follow on about the 19’s PS4s. Looking at the Costco website I noticed that there are two different types, one with a DT1 designation and the other without. Being the sad individual I am wanted to find out more. After talking to Michelin technical support I was advised that the DT1 designated tyre was homologated specifically for the Focus ST. For the driving I do, urban and some spirited weekend driving with national speed limits, Michelin recommended the regular PS4s. J. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
