Re: T-roc DSG jerking when cold...

Second time out since the software update and I had the kangaroo today. The worst thing about it is, I haven't had the kangaroo since the cold weather and today it was 22°c. I think the update has possibly made it worse? I'll give it a few weeks and see. I wonder would they reverse it if it comes d...

Re: Swapping bumpers

Each to their own, but yes I agree, a bit of an eyesore. I've been thinking on this, if the back bumper doesn't have any lights on it, so just parking sensors possibly, surely swapping it for say an R bumper wouldn't cause too much of a problem? And similarly for the front, if it's LED dlr lights o...

Re: Soon to be, new T-Roc owner

Many here will know I’m quite critical of a lot about the T-Roc (mainly stuff that most people couldn’t care less about such as felt in the door pockets and gas struts under the hood). But one thing I will say that VW got very right on this car is comfort. The DSG is excellent for motorway journeys....

Re: T-roc DSG jerking when cold...

Don’t know if you remember but my first T-Roc felt like that immediately after the latest update but then went back to normal a day or two later. Be interesting to see if yours does that too or if it sticks (hopefully the latter!!) Has the manual gearbox/engine got the self learning like the DSG? A...

Re: Different alloy wheels

Can you list both part numbers you’ve found and maybe we can help solve the mystery? My original post with the screenshot is vw parts UK which is also sinclair volkswagen Cardiff. Then the following link lists two Suzuka rims with the exact same specifications although one is classed as an accessor...

Re: Different alloy wheels

It appears the link you have sent twist is Sinclair Volkswagen Thanks for pointing this out: I think some geolocation trickery is happening. You may need to open the link I posted in an Incognito/Private browser window/tab to prevent the auto redirect to VW UK. Even then, it might still do it. You ...

Re: T-roc DSG jerking when cold...

Asked for the engine software update while my car was in for another problem. Will be interesting to see what way it runs in the winter although mine only had an intermittent kangaroo, hopefully will be gone completely. One thing I did notice after the update is that the engine seemed more responsi...

Re: t cross

Mine doesn’t prompt me all that often to “take over steering”. If you grip the wheel properly it almost never does. I find you need to grip properly with Lane Assist on anyway as it has a habit of dragging you off whichever motorway exit it feels like and the servo fights quite hard. Apparently they...

Re: Swapping bumpers

You could always fit them over the top of the existing bumpers, with suitable cut-outs for the lights :o :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol: I know you’re mostly joking but there are a few boy-racer types near me whose Fiesta STs look like they did just that. Or perhaps they got every stick-on bumper part ...

Re: First Post- Beats Audio!

Greetings All, I've not had the R long and starting to be able to enjoy it a bit more. On the subject of Beats sound, the supposed sub in the boot doesn't seem very 'subby', anyone else feeling underwhelmed with this fairly pricey upgrade? :?: That's a fabtastic specification and with an Akropovic ...
