Re: Start of a DSG Fault?

Last week in the Telegraph, Honest John finally opened up about what his concern is with the DSG box in these smaller engine VAG cars. He said that the 7 speed dry clutch DSG boxes should be okay so long as you don't leave them in Drive with your foot on the brake as this creates premature wear. I b...

Re: 1.5tsi DSG 2019 Jerkiness

I get a fair degree of jerkiness in my 1.4!!. I don't think it's down to the engine though. It's more to do with balancing the clutch with the revs. No other car I've had has been like this.

Re: Anyone done any chip tuning?

Neil - out of curiosity, what did your insurance company say about the RaceChip upgrade? How did it impact your premiums? It would be interesting to see how they would view the sizeable ReMap Aberdeen upgrade. Maybe it doesn't make a big difference given that the BHP is still very manageable. Also, ...

Re: How far on a full tank! (Poll)

I've ticked 625 to 650 which is around 40mpg for my 1.4 2WD. That's average for my daily commute and weekend trips out. That's with about 30 miles left showing on the on-board computer so I could probably get a little more if I went down to fumes. I never normally push it that far unless I get caugh...

Re: Hello...

Jonja - welcome. Are you running the car in 'Normal' mode? If yes, then switching it into 'Sport' mode when you know you want to overtake is pretty effective. It won't match an M135 but I certainly notice the difference in mine.

Re: ADVICE NEEDED

Chris. I bought my car through Seat Colchester so fingers crossed when I take mine in for a few issues shortly. As for the radiator, you've probably guessed it's your word against theirs. It's a real bummer. Given that they were only fixing the headlight and battery, they shouldn't have had any obvi...

Re: Ateca ordered but current car need's tyres

Golf - I don't think anyone is suggesting part-worn tyres close to the legal limit. There are plenty of decent options out there. The link below is where e-tyres sent me when I ordered a new set through them on-line. http://www.safewaytyres.co.uk/new-quality-part-worn-tyres-ipswich/ I have my doubts...

Re: Ateca ordered but current car need's tyres

A courtesy car would be great, however, you have been told from the outset that delivery could be 4 - 5 months so it will be that long before it's even considered a delay. As GRS18 says, you certainly have nothing to lose raising it with the dealer. Part worn tyres are always going to be a gamble. H...

Re: Blooming thing won't go anywhere!

I realise that the kangarooing and reluctance of the 1.5 is cropping up on a few threads but thought I would attached the following to this one. It's What Car's latest long term test of a used 1.5 Audi A3 and popped up this morning. "The engine mapping has been altered, too, which has caused some co...
