Re: Car net

Just looked at SE spec and it says it includes 'Car-Net App-Connect'. Not sure whether to be happy or terrified! That’s just their name for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, which actually works most of the time. Except for an irritating bug that prevents audio playing until you toggle to...

Re: Which type of tires are best for t-roc ?

Latest Auto Express’s publication, Special Issue No. 1,598 (23 Oct-12 Nov) , has a 52 page Winter Special. It has a 130 Best SUV’s article and the T-ROC comes 46th. It also has an ALL-SEASON Tyre Test. I have checked the top tyre manufacturer websites and not one does my T-ROCS’s tyre size 215/50 R...

Twist you're just talking your way around to keeping the car again :lol:
I know it sounds like that but I’m not giving up yet - still got some fight in me, however draining this situation is.

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

I've got my car back from the local Arnold Clark dealership with a software update for the engine :D What a difference. It now drives like it should have done from new, normal! No more 'roo, no more second gear dead throttle in the middle of junctions and roundabouts. Let us hope it's permanent. Ti...

Re: Car net

Don’t get too excited about Car Net - it’s broken half the time you use it. For example, mine is currently telling me it’s unlocked and being driven. Nope, it’s locked and on my driveway. VW’s software is an utter joke. This is one of the most unreliable services I’ve ever used. I get that occasion...

Re: Delayed build week (major)

I've just been sent my THIRD Stage 2 notification. So that's Stage 2 in July, October and November. Don't do drugs, kids! Seriously though... someone at VW needs to give their head a wobble. I got my NINTH stage 2 this morning :roll: That must be a record :lol: have you called your dealer to ask wh...

Re: How is your HORN sounding?

I don't have my T-Roc yet, but, if and when it arrives the horn is as feeble as what is being suggested, then I'll be looking to fit a Denali SoundBomb Mini - direct replacement and 113dB. Loud! I fitted one of these to my Motorbike (which is EU4 Compliant and has a CanBUS electrical system) and it...

Re: Just Like the Advert - Two Horns

Oh dear. Here at 1:19 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0yuC1y4fAY That's err.... embarrassing. Will have to fix that. Oh that is terrible (never heard mine). Think I'll be replacing mine as well... I definitely hear the "clown car" now. But that video seems to suggest there are no interior motion s...

the 1.5 engine does not have the dq 381 gearbox and not all 2.0 engines have the dq-381, my21 will have a new update of this gearbox
Which 2.0TSI engines don't have DQ381? Surely it's necessary for the torque output?
