  1. Finally disabled my R’s soundaktor! It’s a good day!!
  2. I had my Mrs drive me around for 20 minutes today trying to find a rattle coming from the back. Found something in the seat latch which a piece of my wife’s yoga mat fixed. She’s angry with me now. Whoops
  3. Thanks for the suggestions. I’d love to turn the soundaktor off but unfortunately don’t have the tools to do it myself. My plan for tomorrow is to spend a lot of time driving around trying different things. Thanks again.
  4. After owning my R for about 8 months it’s developed a really annoying rattle in the A pillar on the drivers side. It’s doing my head in. I've checked the obvious. Loose panels, etc but couldn’t find anything. Has anyone else had and resolved a similar rattle? Sorry the description is a bit vague.
  5. This makes me sick. I hope they catch these bastards.
  6. I live in a terraced house with no dedicated parking area. Each day it’s a mad panic to try and get a space near the house. When I bought my R I was asked why I didn’t get a Tesla. Besides the fact I hate the interior of them the only option I’d have would be to run a long power cable across a public footpath to try and charge my car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Oh man... I hit one on Saturday and I don’t know how I don’t have a cracked wheel. I stopped and took pictures of the pothole just in case I needed to make a claim. I don’t know how you can even avoid them anymore with the sheer number of them. The roads are in a shocking state. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wow, really sorry to read this and I think if I were in your shoes I’d also just want the thing out of my life. I hope you manage to find a buyer and something decent to fill the gap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Gave my R a nice bath today. I know more bad weather is forecast but I felt bad for my R so thought a spa day would be a great use of today. Now I keep catching myself walking to the window and looking at her. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I really liked your rear indicator coding. Actually caught me off guard when you were moving lanes. I was in the Lapiz behind you ;-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Good luck. Let us know how it goes! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I had one of them visit me about 3 weeks ago. I explained that I had no cash on me to purchase any of his goods. He said they took cheques. I explained I don’t have a check book. The guy lost his rag at me and started swearing at me. I certainly won’t be opening my door to that lot again after that experience. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. My wife keeps telling me off for looking out the living room window and looking at my car. Also for turning around and looking at it when we park up at the shops. :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Oh man... you’ve missed the best part of the Golf R purchasing experience.... Taking someone else’s car out and abusing it with no consequences. If I were you I’d get a test drive booked in sometime in February just for fun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I get this about once a week or so. I’ll be driving along and then some idiot will always try and play games. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
