I get corporate discount, so I paid sub £1k for my 13" Retina. Even so, I can't imagine what £2k gets or who 'really' needs it.


Re: MFD2 Video in/Bluetooth?reversing cam capability
Last Poster: shoaybmakda in Sat Nav and Car Audio on Yesterday at 11:37:34 PM
I'm interested in this too - anyway you can play DVDs or stream videos on the mfd2? I've seen a YouTube video but he gives no instructions at all just a video to brag he's done it (typical!)

I've seen another video that says something about unlocking a mfd2 but what does that achieve?


Re: ED30 overboosting and feels like clutch is slipping
Last Poster: Dan_FR in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 11:36:31 PM
Lambda AFR is in the log. No idea if the Revo DSG maps increase clamping pressure, but it CAN be done. The likes of R-Tech can increase the clamping pressure as part of their DSG map. What mileage has the car covered? Only thing i could suggest is clutchpacks but i dont know enough about the DSG boxes to help any further


Re: Apr boost tap
Last Poster: Dan_FR in Performance Modifications on Yesterday at 11:30:31 PM
APR or 42DD ones are easy, which one depending on whether you are keeping the original PCV, just push in to the end of the manifold and twist to lock it in place, Revo one is a bit fiddly with the 3 bolts to hold it in place

I want to upgrade my stereo from the standard one in my 56 plate gti.
I know eddie seems to be the main guy. But he lives to far away for me.
Am i right in thinking if i upgrade to a non vw stereo, i dont need to upgrade the canbus. Or is that wrong.

Need some advice please! Which version of the RNS510 should i be looking at? I have seen a few on ebay/Guntree locally which are 'Q' or 'P' but unsure as to which one i should go for

Re: Will these fit
Last Poster: Northy1985 in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 08:59:21 PM
Just liked the look at the 9" as they have a slight concave to them. I have seen them on rears of s mk5 and look ok but only 8" on front didnt know if the 9" would just miss the arch


Re: Mk5 Timing Chain Rattle
Last Poster: dazza in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 07:21:00 PM

Thanks again Dazza,

So what your saying is the adjuster for the axx and bwa engines are the same?
Yep the adjustor should be the same, I wouldn't bother changing it just the chain and tensioner seems to solve the problem.
