I've not got any plans to modify the GTI. I like it as it is.
The Passat 1.8T has only got 62000 miles on it. It only had 1 previous owner before me. I still enjoy driving the Passat especially the Turbo lag.

Ah yes, much. Couldn't have expected it to be a new design idea after all  :laugh:

It's definitely the same controller id as the mk7, it's a j869.

Hmmm maybe. I've not seen anyone talking about doing it for a mk8 yet but possibly.

I'm not sure whether all of the settings are protected by sfd or just some. If it is behind sfd then definitely not.

Oh, when I say garage, I mean a local independent, not a dealer. I'm out of warranty anyway

I wondered if it had a soundaktor but it definitely does because i can see the controller in obdeleven.

Can  it be disabled using that Fred ?

Oh not good. But atleast you know about the gas leak.
Ive being reseaching chargers as im building a new garage. The front runner for me is the zappi charger as its easiest to have installed after research. The ohme seems abit more of a faff to install after watching this install.

You seem to be having the same luck i do,  Hope you have it all sorted out soon.

Ohme looked technically the best/smartest. If you go Matt-E device instead of earthing rod, supposedly easier. Podpoint needs no Matt-E or earthing rod, but is still supposedly a bit buggy on the software for scheduled smart charging.

That install looks pretty straightforward, the guy just had to pick a box doing the broadly same job as the Matt-E that matched the consumer unit. My meter is external and our garage was converted, with the consumer unit not on the opposite side of an outside wall, so installation would've been messy had they not been able to only tie in to the meter. They put the Matt-E unit in the meter box,keeping everything tidy.

The first thing the garage will say is plugs (without even looking at it) and as that's a serviceable part, they'll not cover the cost. After that, I'd hazard a guess at coil pack.
