  1. thank you all for your comments, really do appreciate it
  2. gave a good clean and threw the BBS's back on
  3. hope it all works out mate, least the offer to get refund/reset is there, heard nothing but positive stuff with quattro tech. going back on what i said......guess i could get the TVS ECU tune if i want the DSG? just means travelling abit
  4. ah ok, maybe i read it the wrong way lol but on some of the stuff posted, hearing the small issues with revo stuff has put me off abit with them.....i think it's the DSG part, but it does say they offer DSG on mk7 according to website. i know a place about 1hr n half that do TVS as well.....but always felt or maybe what i've wanted is the same company that does the ECU tune as well as the TCU
  5. was gonna email them today, but the whole lack of communication thing i can't stand at all.
  6. little bit put off the whole remap thing regarding that.
  7. been wanting to put some official BBS one's on my alloys, but little worried. Maybe if i put little copper grease on them?
  8. looking good. Can i ask how comes you had to get new springs? did others one have fault or worn?
  9. well, last thing which VW said tome was, if the smell occurs, then drive it straight to us and ask for the manager & he will come out with a sensior tech there and then. Done few 100 miles now and the smell is off and on, more so it is there but its been hard to drop everything to drive into VW esp late in the day when the manager aint there. Had a day off finally on friday to be able to try get it to VW, drove around for hour n half or so.....did the smell appear??? Nope!! Drove to work today, on way home parked up, the smell is back!! grrrrr spoke to a couple of independent specialist now instead and he said he suspects its the seal between the thermostat and water pump not done right. Think i'm just gonna book it in with him to look at, least booking with them they will look at it there and then, not take to dealer and gets looked at end of the day or next one.
  10. glad this has come up as been curious lately on revo's dsg map myself, understand TVS is the best go for but always wanted to try keep the ecu map the same as whoever doing the TCU one
  11. i've seen one also around there
  12. Welcome, very nice motors
  13. been looking at getting one of those label printers myself for the same thing. have you used it yet? if so any good?
  14. i'm in the same position as you, my thermostat was replaced around this same time last year, after picking up the car and driving on the way home i lost all power. VW sent a technician out to me as i was stuck at the side of the road and said they had not put the hose on properly. After few 100 mile's i noticed the smell again, i thought its the residue, another few 100, i thought nah there is something not right here. So back to VW, they say its residue, got the car back and smell seemed to of gone, month later, it's back again (now we're in april lockdown), i get car in air, noticed residue underneath, clean it all off, test car out still the smell. get it into another dealer who said cant find no issues etc etc. car goes in for service, on the health check video, he says signs of residue of a leak (now i've cleaned this prior), so i said look, even your tech has said there is issue. same "no issues to find, we've done pressure tests, run the car for hours, driven it for hour or so, no faults" in the end it was left by the dealer owner that if the smell happens when im out on the road, then to call up, ask for him direct and drive right to them so they can smell it and go from there. in total it's been in about 3/4 times after the intital repair with regarding the smell issue. VW customer services were aware of all this, but cant say on "common problem as not flagged by vw as one" i've been on furlough since november and not driven the car, basically sat parked up. I've got to the point of, i'm going to end up sending to an independent to get looked at and if so sort it (quotes from 500/600 onwards - to do both water pump & thermostat - revision parts). not sure if i can take up anything after cost wise being helped, but i cant keep dropping my car off at vw in morning, for them to not start looking at it till end of the day or the day after, then same answer back, least independent will work on it right away when booked in i have though had no coolant warning light, nor seen any drop from the coolant tank. just this stupid horrible smell. i had read few others say they've had this smell and say "it's normal" which i don't think it's right. hope you get it sorted
