Ph.D. in R-ology (6/9)



  1. Hello mate yes you can code them out, plenty threads on here: https://www.vwroc.com/forums/topic/14041-disconnecting-flaps/ https://www.vwroc.com/forums/topic/30264-exhaust-flaps/ https://www.vwroc.com/forums/topic/21844-obd-eleven-exhaust-flaps-2017-app-instructions/ https://www.vwroc.com/forums/topic/31715-exhaust-flaps/ There are probably another 3 topics here about it, just search the forum. If you want to keep it stock you can get an actuator on eBay or a breakers or maybe someone on here can help you out. Sent from my CPH2415 using Tapatalk
  2. You will also need a release bearing and very possibly a new flywheel but that will depend on what extent it's worn which will only be evident when the clutch is removed. I would also recommend getting an upgraded clutch rather than an OE replacement such as this kit (I have this kit installed) https://www.awesomegti.com/shop-by-car/volkswagen/golf-mk7/clutches-and-flywheels/rts-performance-smf-clutch-twin-friction-clutch-kit-golf-7-r-gti-cs-s3-tts-leon-cupra-octavia-vrs/ Fitting can be expensive due to labour time (up to 6 hrs) a competent workshop that's done it before may charge only 4 hrs. From memory I paid about £250 ish for fitting.
  3. Here are some pics for reference. They were 235/35/19 on my Scirocco also available in 18" apparently.
  4. I had the NGK in mine prior to stage 2 and I believe these are the stock plugs, never had any problems with them at all. Only advice is don't overpay for them! You can get a set of 4 from Amazon for £41.86 Certain performance sites want £70 for them! NGK PLFER7A8EG 94833 Laser Platinum Spark Plug Pack of 4 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07S7Z4HVV
  5. Fresh plugs won't do any harm but normally if just stage 1 is not needed but as always ask your tuner what they recommend.
  6. If you don't want to use a hairdryer you can also try warm soapy water. I've removed stickers and the actual R badge from the rear of mine using a hairdryer without any problems, don't let it get so hot you can't touch it. I've got an extension reel so it's not a problem to get it out to mine.
  7. Hairdryer, take your time. There may be glue residue left once it's off which should come off easily with tar and glue remover.
  8. Honestly if you are having these issues after getting your car repaired then take it back, complain through the insurance company. You shouldn't be having to try and fix this yourself.
  9. @Simon ST No problems with it here and I'm stage 2.
  10. I check mine monthly on a cold morning, drive less than a mile to the petrol station. Mine state 38PSI I set them at 36 and then reset TPM.
  11. No belt on the R, it's a chain and won't need replacing unless something goes wrong.
  12. I'm sure you can turn it on in the radio under car settings
  13. Doing a quick Google search here is one for sale, they also offer fitting and recovery. https://www.gumtree.com/p/car-replacement-parts/vw-golf-mk7-r-s3-2.0-tsi-6-speed-dsg-gearbox-qsp-13-17-/1431592377 Failing that I'd contact your local scrapyards and see if they have one or can source one
  14. Stunning! Red definitely is the best colour [emoji2]
  15. My suggestion would be the goto I think you could consider them at this point (Maxton) http://www.maxtondesign.co.uk/side-skirts-diffusers-vw-golf-vii-r-hatchback-estate
