Lots more Clubsport content imminent from Mr Chapple https://youtu.be/0LbjrERYzLs

I do like his videos.

He’s a good lad is Mr Chapple. I met him a few times at various events over the years many moons ago and even bought a car from him when he was first setting up.
He has lots of experience and is in tune with the sort of people that visit forums such as this, despite him seemingly preferring to use social media which is understandable as he needs to promote himself in the widest possible arena. It’s just a shame looking at many of the comments on said media that it’s the usual easily influenced fanboys and people that have strong opinions on things they know nothing about.
His videos are very ‘him’, quite laid back and open, no frippery. I think Andrew would learn a bit on this forum!
I agree with much he says, disagree with much and have no love of massive Audis personally, no matter how fast they might go, but I’ll always try and watch his VW/SEAT related content.

Prior to that a couple dozen other warmed over VWs

I don’t watch the Audi content either. Not an Audi fan at all. My S3 was my least favourite car I’ve had but I kept it the longest. Odd.

I am a little surprised he hasn't done any Skoda content. I know perhaps Skoda isn't the most sporty or fashionable brand out there, but to have not even had a cursory once over of cars like the Octavia vRS seems a little remiss to me. 🤷‍♂️

Interested that he was taking it easy for the first 1000 miles. I asked about this when I picked mine up, and was told no running in period was necessary

I think that’s just an old school thing that Andrew obviously very much subscribes to. Similarly, he put that white MK7.5 R Wagon up on a ramp and put a sealant on the underbody... despite knowing he’d only be keeping it a few months.

On his latest video he says he's getting a VRS in to review.

it states in the manual about running it in.
TCR, Pure Grey, DCC, Dynaudio and Climate Screen.
