  1. Thank you everyone. Shame I never got to meet any of you. I have said to a few if it's not sold before the up coming caffeine and machine meet I may take it. Perhaps see some of you there. Glad to say it's had a fair bit of interest on auto trader including a phone me call from a well known prestige and super car show room in London. Pretty cool! Sent from my ELS-NX9 using Tapatalk
  2. The older I get. The more I realise there's no such thing as a mid life crisis. In reality, its just the kids and life finally getting to a stage where dad can by himself something nice with the money that he earns [emoji23] Thanks for kind words mate. Appreciate that x Sent from my ELS-NX9 using Tapatalk
  3. Who knows. I might win the lottery yet and be able to keep it..... Sent from my ELS-NX9 using Tapatalk
  4. In short, my partners has lost her job and another mini me might be on the way, I have a company car, and she has a car, so this is a luxury that in the grand scheme of things I cannot afford now. It's heart breaking. But that's life I guess..... Going to re-focus on getting a bigger house then who knows.. maybe one day ill be able to own a car like this again.... If you hear of a man in Oxford jumping off a bridge, you know where I went..... haha x
  5. Regretfully, this is now for sale, I have created an add in the Classified - Cars For Sale section on the forum. Link to auto trader here https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202107034580245
  6. Hope you're all well, Does anyone know the official terminology for the VW optional "Black Styling Package"?
  7. Thank you for the kind feedback guys! Appreciate it!
  8. Lovely mate! Will be ordering mine end of month [emoji16][emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Haha. They're the exact 2 things that make me dislike it [emoji23][emoji108] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Look at some reviews on YouTube about the Mk8. It's completely down to personal preference. Imo the 7.5 is far better than an 8. I think In 10 years time the 7.5s will be worth more than 8's. Lovely car! Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. I've been looking at these! Let me know what the fit and quality is like please Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Perhaps the map just makes the difference in the various modes as mentioned less noticeable! Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. That's good to know. Would be good to have clear indication which mode (S or D) you are in when in manual. Rather than just "M" for both! Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. It's a bit of a strange question and I'm not really sure how to ask it. But here goes. In a non DCC mapped car. What is the difference between normal driving mode with sport selected compared to race mode sport mode selected. I can't tell. Additionally. Does it make a difference when knocking into Manual if the car was previously in "S" or "D" I notice the car idles higher in "S" (both "Normal" and "Race" mode) when going over to manual from S it maintains the Higher idle. When knocking into manual from "D" the idle remains lower. Would this mean throttle response in manual is now the same as "D" rather than "S". Its there a manual "S" and "D" mode? How do you control this? Im unsure if its in my head. But I swear it feels quicker in "Normal - S“ than "Race - S“ could MRC have mapped the Normal mode rather than the Race mode. Is that even possible? I did say its a strange question and I'm unsure how to even ask it. And it's a question only fit for a forum [emoji23] On another note. It went in for some warranty work recently. Someone said to me "be careful they don't reset/update your ecu you might loose you map" Seemed an odd thing to say and from an unreliable source. But it got me paranoid. I can't remember what it felt like before a map. Is the map gone? [emoji23] Could someone confirm if VW can even remove a map at a dealership ship [emoji23] Any simular experiences or info please let me know. Failing that. Your welcome for the laugh the above undoubtedly gave some of you [emoji23][emoji28][emoji58] This is what over thinking and too much free time does to a man. Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
