I'm sure I've read on here somewhere that the MK7.5 has an improved exhaust note so might be worth letting the car run in for a few months before commiting to replacing the system in case it does what you want as stock. If it still doesn't do what you want then I'd look through you tube for videos of various options to get an idea of what does it for you. I think you can remove the middle box and replace it with a straight pipe for instance, could be a good easy option and economical.

No.  My headlight washers stay off regardless of season.  I hate them more than I hate stop/start and that's saying something.  :grin:

I'm thinking with all the salt and crap on the roads that windscreen washer fluid is going to be the last thing on my things to be worried about getting on the car.

@Audy, that's what I used to do in my CC.

Nah, I'd rather an even layer of salt and winter grime without the runny streaks from headlight washer fluid, which always looks skanky even on a dirty car.

Why am I not surprised, I haven't gone near the detailing section because I haven't washed the car in two months

cheers



Been messing around with the menus on the car and theres things like app connect and car net etc

display says it needs to be set up by dealer or something

is this normal? should this have been done before i took delivery or does the CSS not have these features?


Also were parking sensors an option? mine doesn't have them

In the MFD there is a screen for font assist and shows a picture of the car bonnet. Is this a parking aid? Cant see Why would you need this graphic displayed while driving?

cheers
Fecking stunning car, I went for the GTD because front parking sensors weren't available on the Clubsport or S :laugh:

I think it would be just right. Not too much of a risk to give it a go, £60ish. Or you can get a set of genuine VW caps sprayed and delivered for about £75 on ebay (avoid the non-oem ones, they may not fit quite right and as I found are a bit brittle and the catches snap easily) then you can have the best of both worlds or if you don't like them you'll sell them easily enough and get most of your money back :smiley:

I wouldn't want Arnold shark to service it anyway  :whistle:

Since they took over Advantage/Inch VW in Stirling and Inch in Bathgate the nearest alternative is probably Western at Newbridge. AC seem to pretty much be leaving VW owners with not much option. :sad:
