PM Limit Upped
on March 24, 2015, 01:04:48 PM
Ive just raised the limit up to 500PMs. Hopefully that should give everyone a bit more head room. The forum seems to be running fine so no reason to cap it as low as 100 now.

I thought a few Southern owners might want to take note. I emailed VW Murray in Newton abbot in Devon yesterday regarding cambelt + water pump change along with a brake fluid.

Re: How many miles

I can count only a few occasions that I got LESS than 400 miles out of my GTI.
I would regularly get between 400 and 440. I could usually get well over 450 if it was longer drives.
My usual commute was 2 miles door to door with a few 50 mile round trips to the mrs place in the week.
The lowest I ever got was about 350.

Definitely a seller mistake. They have admitted that. But won't cover any of the costs or give any good will lol. I even put in the customer comment box at the bottom of the purchase form....please make sure a steel flywheel is sent out with this kit. An alloy one arrived.

I'm pinching a friends obd2 wifi scanner that links to an iPhone app...should at least give me the codes! Then as you say can investigate further.
When you say you have to code the abs, does this require vcds? I plan to buy the parts that I need then get my local indep

I'm going to fit one in mine, as my customised one makes using the horn almost impossible. Plus I want multi function and cruise control to up the spec of my car.
Yeah they are nice I haven't got it programmed yet, waiting on ch module from China
