Get some insurance quotes as I believe premiums can be a lot higher for imports.

Mk5 General Area / Intermittent throttle pedal issue
« Last post by Mk5. EWC on Today at 08:56:53 PM Started by Mk5. EWC  »
I changed the front and rear calipers the other day, bled the brakes and the clutch but since doing them I've had an issue with the pedal.

It may just be coincidence but never happened before.

It will come back after a few seconds and luckily hasn't done it at a junction yet.

Nothing from the pedal at all, not just a loss of power.

Any ideas?

Was my hoping for plug and play a bit too optimistic perhaps?

Have a look at the audio section under modifications. Plenty of info on these headunits.

They are made for VW in China and Russia. A lot of people buy them for the CarPlay feature and of course the price.

Stick with oem as it gives the smoothest shifts. I did try Millers NT gear oil however the change was slower and graunchy into second gear.

Can anyone recommend gearbox oil other than VW offering for the 02Q transmission or is it best to stick with OEM?

Looks like a clone mate, so do some research on them before investing. https://forums.ross-tech.com/showthread.php?9491-RCD330

Also, often lots of chinese products sold "in the UK" on eBay is from Ali Express.

Check this out.

Price wise I have no real idea, but I've seen them mint start at £8,000 and upwards to £11,000.

Yours has a great specification with very low miles, so I would expect it to sell on an open market quite well.

Personally I wouldn't paint anything, as soon as you do it's completely noticeable.
