Glad they sorted the leak.

Check the plastic collar that holds the spare down. Mine rattles like a bugger when it is loose.
Golf mk8 / Re: latest software?

After having my software updated to 1668, everything at the moment seems to be fine. One thing that happened whilst driving north to Scottish Borders---Voice control activated itself, my fingers were now where near the button, she announced places to eat in London--made me smile.

I had the last S3 and I didn’t really gel with it. The R and any other gti I’ve had feel a lot more engaging. S3 feels more like a motorway cruiser and the ride is as dreadful imo. Don’t get me started on the ‘look good but do nothing to hold you in’ seats.  :grin:

That’s cheaper than 10 years ago. I bet you’re earning more than you were then.

In real terms I’m earning far less now than then.
Hence I still give a stuff how much fuel costs!  :grin:

I read it as it cost 141.90 pounds to fill up. Nearly fell off my chair..

My number presentation is nearly as bad as my grammar!  :whistle:
£1.419 (?) 141.9 ppl (?) or £1.42 rounded up which is easier to decipher
Golf mk8 / Re: Clubsport 45s ordered and delivery progress
« Last post by king monkey on 23 July 2021, 16:29 »
So just had an email from my dealer. He said there’s a 2-3 week delay and mine has a provisional build week of 50 so wb 13th December. Bearing in mind I was initially told sept/Oct delivery that’s a bit longer. Again, I’m not bothered personally but thought this info might be useful.

remind me when you ordered yours again?

Edit found it:  07 June 2021.

I ordered mine in May, no build week for me yet,  from memory you ordered same dealer as me, was the sale person James? I emailed him and he is off until monday

I ordered from Vw Manchester. As usual there’s nothing on the app, just info from the dealer

Something about the S3 I didn't like much... can't really put a finger on it though.

You’ve summed up that something without realising.
It has a complete lack of charisma to draw you in.
An S-line looks just as good and is probably just as engaging to drive unless you have an unrestricted road in front of you. The S3 has no USP.

The two things to watch out for on the M135i is:

a) service costs - BMW really gouge the hell out of you
b) tyres - it eats them with uneven wear patterns

Other than that, its a lovely car for sure but its definitely not really a Golf R, even less of a Mk8 R.

They used to be quite cheap to buy too, not so much any more....

Your not wrong on servicing, I had a 320d a few years ago and the main dealer wasn't much more than my local inde, I considered an M2 (used) as well as the M135ix before I got my golf and their prices have rocketed!!!!
