Google maps useful tip

There will be many members who already know this I’m sure but for those who don’t, a useful thing I discovered today is the ability to download maps to your phone so that if you are in an area with no signal, you can still use the maps and navigation. We are heading to the Lakes this weekend and my ...

Re: Apple car play disconnects

I haven’t but the car is in for it’s first service end of July so I might demand a replacement cable then. Or just use any Apple Lightning cable, the one you use to charge your phone in the house for example, so you can see if it is the cable or not and so you can use Carplay in the meantime if it ...

@david.stark; have you tried a different cable to see if that cures the issue?

Apple car play disconnects

This is irritating me now. I connect the cable to my iPhone X and it connects straight away, no problem. The moment I try to place the phone in the tray thing, it disconnects. So I try again and it disconnects again. It varies as sometimes it’s fine on the 2nd attempt but yesterday it took 5 attempt...

Re: What MPG are owners getting in the real world?

My 95 DSG was rather poor on fuel until 2 days ago. I had been getting high 30’s MPG and typically around 300 miles from a full tank using Shell fuel save unleaded. However, the winter tyres have just come off and the standard Goodyear tyres are back on. Economy was showing as high 50’s on my journe...

Re: Paint chips

I can only echo the above replies. I had the diamondbrite protection applied at home by a car valeter as I know dealers cut corners. I’m very pleased I opted for silver. The best colour for no paint stress! My last couple of cars were much more interesting colours (deep red and navy blue) but showed...

Re: 5000K bulbs

The photos don’t do the lights justice. In person there is a vast difference in brightness and it is a crisp white light. First test will be tomorrow night when my shift finishes at midnight. The way home is an unlit dual carriageway then the M1. Xtreme vision https://i.postimg.cc/XJDCv1MD/279-F605-...

Re: 5000K bulbs

Right then, bulbs now fitted. I could tell a difference when looking into the light compared with the side I hadn’t changed at that point. Photos will follow tonight to compare with last night on the standard bulbs. Notice the mistake in the manual. Number 2 is in fact the dipped beam not the main b...

Afraid not. I’d just been to collect my Polo having had the screen replaced due to the dead pixels fault.

A mistake but no intervention from front assist

I have to admit my mistake here. I was looking right at a car out of shot which was approaching and left it late to indicate left. I did look ahead to check all was ok and observed the Mercedes clear the roundabout and that all was well or so I thought. Lesson learned about expecting the unexpected ...

Re: 5000K bulbs

After careful consideration and reading this, I’ve opted for Philips X-treme vision bulbs. Excellent reviews, a whiter light and more brightness on the road. Should have done this before winter but hey ho! How does everyone find the fitting process? I’ve had mixed results with cars over the years. S...

Re: Interior trim

Indeed. I’ve just checked and the price is estimated at around £1500.

Ok....

Re: Interior trim

Yes that was what I was referring too and blimey that’s quite a cost for those wheels :shock:

I’ll ask the question but if it’s OTT price wise I’ll give it a miss.

Interior trim

This has possibly been asked elsewhere but I’ve been wondering about the interior trim colours. I wondered if the other trim colours can be purchased and fitted by VW. I’ve had the screen replaced today due to the known fault with dead pixels and they had to remove parts of the trim to change the un...
