Have driven mine like that every day for 5 years  :smiley:  Still not bored of it.  I put that down to the Ohlins coilovers and Eibach ARBs.  Every corner is a thrill  :drinking:

Has anyone else had their ESP kick on fast corners?  The car feels like it can go way faster than my comfort zone but the ESP kicks in and starts stabbing at the brakes mid corner!  Annoying!

Yes but only 2/3 times in the 9 years I have had it.

I love my pss10 but they are happiest when mid corner, under load..... but a bit sh*t for comfort in a straight line.

What damper adjustments are you running?  I always use 50% up front and 25% at the back.  That's the main difference between B16 and Ohlins DFV......the Ohlins are a bit more civilised over the rough stuff, but feel like the B16 in the corners  :happy2:

Yes, when the front starts to slip the ESP kicks in. If you’re confident enough just turn it off and drive as you like.  :driver:

Can't turn off ESP, only TC. 

Just for clarity, I'm not even on the throttle when it kicks in.  I think it's just a combination of road speed + steering angle + zero throttle = one confused ECU!  It's a down hill, sweeping left hand off ramp and it stabs at the right hand front brake caliper to scrub off speed.  I take it at 80mph.  To be fair, most 'normal' (sane) people take it at 40-50  :grin:

If your ESP cluster light turns on without flashing your ESP should be almost fully off. With just TC off the ESP light flashes.
I have those 2 stages available on my diesel with the newer ABS pump. On my GTI it just has the ESP turned on solid when I deactivate the ESP.  :confused:

I don't look at the cluster lights  :grin:   I can still feel the ESP stabbing at the brakes with TC turned off.  I think on the MK6 you can turn ESP off with the long coding in VCDS so that it's off permanently.  There is no such feature in my 2007 GTI.  The ESP has saved me a couple of times in bad weather though, so it's probably best to leave it on  :smiley:

Pudding - Newer ABS units like the MK60EC1 ones found from 2010 cars an onwards actually have a few different options in the ESP
Older models like the BE-BJ-BL has HW31 (i think) which is only 19 byte long coding which doesn't have that much ESP options like newer units like inde CB-CC which is HW46 this is a 20 byte long coding which has byte 19 only for ESP options like fully deactivated, ESP sport and such

After three years' ownership, I finally solved the boot rattle this morning. It was the reversing light unit.

I read on here someone replaced the seal on a light unit to stop their rattle, so took it off to examine the possibilities and noticed it rattled. I couldn't see why it rattled or get into it to fix it, but it now seemed likely I'd found what has been driving me nuts. I found a replacement unit on ebay, it was delivered this morning and the rattle disappeared as soon as I put the new light unit in. Three years, miles of tape on anything that wasn't nailed down, new gas struts and lots and lots of swearing, but at last it's gone! No doubt another one will appear, but these small victories keep you going.

Changed the cam position sensor and reset the fault codes fingers crossed! also give the drivers door some TLC as it was slightly faded compared to the rest of the car. No time to fully detail it yet after getting it but hopefully some day soon.

Also fitted some interior strip lights in the footwells, rear wiper delete and started to hardwire in my dash cam but the darkness got the better of me. Me and the car are enjoying this good spell of weather we are having!

Yet another 4000 mile oil change.  They come around quick!

I feel like my car is missing something to hold the sump sensor wire in place? Pretty sure VW wouldn't leave the wire dangling like that!  Is there supposed to be a bracket or something on the subframe?



Very handy filter housing drain tool in case anyone hasn't seen it before  :happy2:  It normally has a tube attached, but it dribbles out like a 90 year old's piss stream with it attached, so I binned it.



Fitted a £10 S3 boost pipe from ebay about 18 months ago and to my surprise, it's still dry  :surprised:  I don't know what it is with those pipes.  Some leak, some don't.  Weird!  Might be worth a punt if anyone has a leak, 'down there'.

Yep... you are missing a very flimsy cable clip/bracket.
