Liking the black badges, where you get them from  :smiley:

Bought them off the bay, £30 which I was quite impressed with.  Just searched for them but I would imagine its a little bit of a gamble as to quality.

first service with no issues, front tyres down to 3mm i 9k so must be trying, traffic chaos by dealer meant they could not get up to speed for wind noise issue

let the 2013 modifications commence

Fitted a Forge Intercooler and twintercooler, thought it would be rude not to fit both as i got them at a great price off another forum member :wink:  not had chance to fully test it out yet, still feels really responsive and not laggy, only time will tell when this crappy weather clears a bit,
Think i will pop into the local Revo dealer today and see if there is any updates for the stage 2 map or go stage 2+ (S2 now been on for about 2.5 years)

Been to local Revo dealer today, no stage 2+ available for the mk6, 2+ is for the mk5 after fitting the HPFP which the mk6 already has fitted,
So no need for any alterations as the car will adjust itself  :smiley:

Made the wise decision to leave it at home and not bring it down to Kent, muddy tracks and way to many pot holes on rural lanes, the 500 has been well and truly abused

Given mine a good cleaning today after having to use it last week, due to the Passat being out of action. It's all nicely tucked up in the garage again now.

This OCD behaviour is going to have to stop. A potential Passat replacement that's on the horizon will put an end to it. I'm going to have to use one of the cars, so may alternate them week on, week off or something.
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

Tell me about it!  The state of the rural roads here is shocking.  Hit a bad pot hole yesterday and the jolt was horrifying.......my poor wheel  :sad:

Dubber36 if you want to indulge your OCD, you can come and clean my car after every trip out!
