Re: 235 Tyres On 8.5" Wheels

No worries, I appreciate the input.
If 235 worked it would be my preference just.
I agree completely, 235 would be best for an 8.5j, but rubbings a real possibility once lowered

The much loved Edition 30 is danger close to going.Its Revo Stage 1,Stage 2 and DSG software.My question is if I go the trade in route the dealer won't want the mapping.So how do I go about
returning to stock?.
I will be trying the for sale section here first but just wondering on the above.
Re: How to make the alarm 'beep' when locking/unlocking
Last Poster: shail in Mk5 General Area on Today at 07:11:19 AM
I bought a cheap £5 Bluetooth OBD dongle from eBay and then an android app called Carista for £15. This combo allows me to scan for fault codes and also change quite a few settings such as beep on lock/unlock, daytime lights, come home lights, key fob opening options etc....
For £20 I think it's great.

The furthest I plan on going is stage 2 now can you use the stock down pipe and just have a de cat pipe made to connect to the catback? I've read a few comments of people saying 2.5" is enough unless your looking at 350+bhp? Cheers

some people are going to jump in here and give me grief but depending on what year the passenger side controller is from (and from VW stock not Seat) the puddle light does go off, just weird programming of the units by VW, i've seen this on various folding mirror VW's depending on year, your just going to have to live with that bit sadly.
