Disable stop-start while maintaining button function

Hi all, I was browsing aliexpress the other day, as you do, and came across this listing. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000650725125.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.0.0.29173e7bJlEnNC&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreThisSeller&scm=1007.13339.169870.0&scm_id=1007.13339.169870.0&scm-url=1007.13339.169870.0&pvid=ac9...

Re: Headrest width

On the Mk6 Polo GTI the headrest spokes are 15cm center to center with the spokes roughly 15mm each in diameter.

My Nextbase camera is positioned just as monkeyhanger says. No issues with the footage.

Re: The Great Tyre Debate

The Eagles won't last 3/4 of the time of the Michelins. In the video from 3m30s he talks about wear and from the data that is out there, pegs all three tires at similar wear. He also touches on the so called internet folk law about Goodyear having terrible wear which is no longer true. https://www....

Re: The Great Tyre Debate

Goodyear asymmetric 5 currently working out at £270 for 4 with NHS discounts compared to the pilot sport 4 at £355 with discounts. Are the pilot sports really worth the extra as I want mine changed as soon as car arrives? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_utfLrFaOM Have a watch of this. The Goodyea...

18" Calibre Suzuka - Gunmetal 18 x 8.0" 5x100 ET45 with MPS4 225/40R18 tyres

Rears needed an additional 3mm spacer to clear inside alloy hub from brake calipers.

Because I waited so long for the car I had the wheels and tyres ready to fit since day one of car ownership.

Re: Team Heko wind deflectors

Hello, I have fitted my deflectors and fronts are fine without clips as you say. Rears are ok but clips almost useless, would you be kind enough to send me a picture of how you placed the adhesive pads please? Thank you When fitting the rears, only one side will take a clip at the rear and instead ...

Re: Soundaktor deactivation guide

Finally got round to unplugging the soundaktor. I found that the unit isn't screwed in, you can push the clip aside from the unit and remove the unit from its retaining bracket. Doing this will mean you can store the unit off the car and one less connector you have to tape up and risk getting water ...

Re: Soundaktor deactivation guide

Might give this a go. I've disabled the soundaktor via obdelevn but I'm sure when I put it into sports mode the soundaktor re-activates.
