Re: I've traded my 123D for a Fiesta

Sold my 123d back in June. M3 arms, Powerflex bushes, Michelin PS2 non run flats and with Bilstein suspension, it was still pretty poor for handling. Had some good fun in it, and its not a bad car, perhaps just not the car I was hoping or expecting from BMW...

Re: Loss of power and fan spinning

At What point does this issue go from irritating, to You are not capable of fixing this on-going and potentially *dangerous issue, I'm rejecting this car? Gutted for the people that have this problem, I must admit I would be fuming at the mo *dangerous - potential lack of power when needed for cruci...

Re: Golf GTI Mk7 with Performance Pack

sorry yeah that explains it, its now called DCC, Dynamic Chassis Control on VW Mk7 range. :D

Probably due to this exact reason of confusion over ACC etc, and why we were talking about different things.

Re: Golf GTI Mk7 with Performance Pack

Genuinely, am I mixing things up? ACC Adaptive Cruise Control? or ACC Auto Climate Control? The Mirror Pack is now standard. (I think the heated part is now in the winter pack, but the tilt, folding and puddle lights are in the mk7 Mirror pack as standard) The Adaptive Cruise is now standard. The 2 ...

Re: Golf GTI Mk7 with Performance Pack

ACC, and bluetooth are standard on the GTI, is it not on the R? What is the Lux pack I can't find it in the options on either car? If its folding mirrors etc, its standard on the Mk7 GTI so assume its the same for the R? But perhaps its something else? Is it heated everything? THe thing with an 8 in...

Re: Golf GTI Mk7 with Performance Pack

Just been reading about the artificial noise, didn't realised it had it. :shock: Thats a shame as I REALLY dislike them, its a weird system on the VW as its not through the speakers like the BMW one, but a vibration machine on the firewall. Like playing cards on your spokes :D . Perhaps thats why it...

Re: Golf GTI Mk7 with Performance Pack

The Golf is way way way over priced! I have a Mk 6 R looked at a Mk 7 R and the stealers wanted £42k, I also found the Golf to be a bit boring. Nice looking but dull as ditch water. :| They wanted £42k for a £30k car ? Does seem odd. I Just spec'd a GTI with £1700 of options for more than 2.5k less...

Re: Golf GTI Mk7 with Performance Pack

The only car one actually needs ? Not sure, we all have differing pleasures we require from a car I guess. Like "the wanted" says he needed at this time 6 cylinders, RWD and 300BHP, which I completely understand. They say the 5 door is far more desirable with more sold new and used. I understand th...

Golf GTI Mk7 with Performance Pack

Ok I am a bit late to review a car that came out a year ago, but I Test drove a new GTi with Performance Pack yesterday, and must say I am impressed. Anyone else had a go in one? The car feels plenty fast enough for road use and the engine note was very good, raw in a good way i would say, very fain...

Re: Top layer of lacquer peeling off front bumper

The classic "first time I have seen it" line, not to be used more often than the "first time we have had a car in for that fault"

Glad they are sorting it, but dealers, and BMW dealers in particular are full of sh*t.

That's seems cheap I couldn't find a half decent 964 for less than 30K. low miles, manual, coupe, good colour?

I doubt many 993 will come up for sale below 30k either

Re: Whats been your favourite/most memorable car - NON BMW

Yeah i know, bit depressing really

I checked Pistonheads after uploading these images yesterday as I was a little nostalgic, and had a little cry lol. Don't think i will ever afford to own one again, a decent one that is (manual, coupe). but I had good times a few track days/holidays etc... 8)
