MK7 Area Added
on May 04, 2015, 10:27:54 PM
You have probably noticed that we have just added a MK7 area. Its sparse at the moment, but if it gathers momentum we will add more sub-catergories to match the MK5 area.

I wondered what the gala setting was, my satnav voice was very low on mine so I fiddled with everything and now I have noticed that the volume of my stereo increases with speed but I didn't know which setting had caused it
I really should read the owners manual

Very small update. Had a full service last Saturday at Audi Peterborough and today as I was bored I thought I'd lamin-X the front fogs. The passenger side lens is cracked but you can't really tell. I have more than enough left to do another when I replace it. Over all, pleased with the outcome and should offer them a bit of protection.
Re: Brake fluid change?

VW have a promotion on.. not sure if nationwide? but my local dealer (Inchcape VW in Shrewsbury) quoted me £30 instead of £59 for brake fluid change
Good to know, mine needs doing also. Will call them next week.

Genuine ABC TYPE 4 locking nut key
Last Poster: Stamanatic in Wanted on Today at 06:14:26 PM
Hello, looking for an abc type 4 key, have bought the ones on ebay before but quality is beyond a joke, have had 1 break in half, and completely round off. So looking for a genuine one if anyone has one? Thanks.
Re: Just sold my gti, what next?

4 wheel drive with 300+ bhp will get off the lights quicker but an ed30 or Pirelli with an LSD once moving will be just as effective and probably more exciting. If fast launches are your thing then S3. If you want to drive quick once moving buy an ed30 or similar, sort the suspension and brakes and fit
Interior Scuff Marks
Last Poster: floydsolo in Detailing on Today at 04:58:38 PM
I've got an ED30 & i have scuff marks on the bottom of the door from getting in & out. I've just tried the Magic sponge but to no avail! Is there any product out there that would remove or cover up the marks?
