Would you say the pad was fully stuck on before fitting or did you not check at the time of fitting and only decided to check out of curiosity ?

Thats the type of question to be answered on the forum or on the TFSI Tuning Facebook group. Provided the engine has been looked after and is in good health, it should be absolutely fine

@Shoduchi - Man, seems that my KNC gearbox which should be the same age as yours has 25T parking brake. I was about the sent the diff back to Darkside Developments, but they said it is better to wait and look. My mechanic opened the gearbox today and said it has 25T. :jumping: :jumping: :jumping: 
I'm very happy about this because shipping to and back from Bucharest is expensive and takes at least 10 days.

Oh boy... :surprised: :doh: :slap:

Just checked ETKA following your information mine must be 25T as you said. Yours came out in the Audi A3 and was produced from 11/2007 till 06/2008. Mine was produced from 05/2007 till 12/2008. :sad1:

I'm convinced its fuel pressure related. On a cold start, the 5 or 6 BAR (whatever it is) provided by the LPFP is nowhere near enough to fire the car up, and the pressure must build. Now whether the car sometimes waits for the full 50 BAR, and other times it attempts to start up before it is reached, I do not know.....  Many variables to consider.....

What I did notice with mine is how much faster the starter turns with the newer battery compared to how it was previous.

FAQ's / Part Number for rear brake light (Drivers side)
« Last post by ghuk on Yesterday at 10:19:01 PM Started by ghuk  »
Hi chaps

Does anyone know the part number of the brake light (drivers side) for a 2005 Golf GTI (5 door)? As you can see from the pic below, moisture has formed inside.



 I'm trying to locate a replacement off Ebay but I'm not sure if the part is common throughout the whole MK5 Golf range or if its unique to the GTI.

Any info would be much appreciated

Cheers
George

mine did this for a while, deteriorated to cranking twice for startup.
turns out it was the fuel filter - has a valve in it -it was not sealing properly,
so would let fuel seap back to the fuel tank and hence no proper pressure for startup. made the lpfp work overtime.
hope this helps

I had a gfb+ fitted prior to mapping with the tte420.....and it got taken off straight away due to issues ( not by me either) and refitted with a rev g valve and fixed my boosting issues so the people raving about them must be the lucky ones which have one what actually works
I'm not convinced by these I've had 3 now and they've made the car feel different....
