I use 41. I'm not going to argue with the factory.

Copied from the VWROC forum , Hope that's ok .

 almost fell for it
as it looked really genuine.  I placed an advert back in Feb and I got an email saying I was entitled to some money back so just click the link to verify and enter your password,bank details etc.  Not that I know much about IT but the padlock on the top of the screen was there but I thought hang on I better check and email piston heads to make sure because if it's too good to be true it usually is.

 

They replied and even said wow that's a bloody good scam email and that it looks very genuine.  So watch out

I'm sure the Kenwood upgrade is for units in older cars like rns510s. As Dubber has said the dash is only a screen with very little space behind.

Having drawn a blank with several "smart" dent removal "specialists" after my GTI was assaulted by an unknown idiot in a car park, leaving the offside front wing thus:



I took it this morning to what is, in my opinion, the best bodyshop in Hampshire to ask them to estimate for repairing it.

£375.  Plus VAT.

When I discovered the damage I had my son's new cricket bat in the boot, which hadn't been fully knocked-in.  If only I could have found the miscreant I could have completed the knocking-in process on their face.

I'm not happy.

I'm slightly less unhappy, because I remembered that HMRC owe me a refund of over-paid tax, which is more than enough to cover the repair.  Every cloud, ...

I'm about to treat the rubber door seals on my GTI. But I'll be using some stuff I bought from Honda when I had my S2000.  It worked a treat on my Mk6 Golf.  From memory It's called Shin-Etsu, and comes in a tube about the size of a large toothpaste tube for around £20.

Treated the door/window rubbers on my car with Gummi Pflege this week as the recent hot weather had dried them out and they had started creaking. They’re now back to being silent again. It might not last as long as Krytox but it’s the first time I’ve needed to apply Gummi Pflege to my door/window rubbers this year.

I was in vw the other week and they had a advert for a kenwood upgrade, it was bloody expensive but if the VW techs can fit it it can’t be too hard, the only thing I’d worry about is the MMI controls a lot of functions on the car

The issue would be whether or not there was enough depth in the recess to fit a different unit. Your current fascia is just a shallow screen and all the radio gubbins is in the glovebox.
