Re: Petrol quality?

Cars will run on whatever petrol you choose to use, be it supermarket or branded. The difference may (note - may) be if you are keeping the car a fair number of years, as the premium fuels have a number of additives to help keep things cleaner, mainly inside the injection system. Given how long the ...

Re: Anti theft alarm system

Just looked in a version of the price list I have from Sept 2018, and an alarm shows as standard equipment in the SE upwards

"Alarm with interior protection, deactivation "via infotainment system"

Unless that was a change for MY19 models of course - but I somehow doubt it.

Re: Anti theft alarm system

As far as I’m aware the alarm has always been standard on the SEL and R-Line.

Do you have a flashing red light at the front of the drivers door when you lock the car? Yes? Then you have an alarm.

Re: Has our car been built wrong?

It was the same on mine with a Pan roof when I first got the video of mine having arrived - they left the protective plastic on the roof. You mention black A pillars then you def have a black roof else the A pillars would be white.

Re: HID/LED headlights retrofit

The cheaper option (as you say) would be to fit LED bulbs instead. And then if the car needs to go in for any warranty or other work, just (temporarily) take them out and put the standard globes back in whilst the car is with the dealership - and they'll never know the difference - and it keeps you...

Re: HID/LED headlights retrofit

Coding aside (and I have no idea whether they will need to be coded or not), just the cost of the OEM LED units will not be cheap I would imagine. Plus you have to consider your warranty, as if this is an "unapproved" modification by VW themselves (which I suspect it is) then they (arguably) could v...

Re: TRoc Diecase model miniature

Some on eBay which ship from China in various colours - but at £76 I’ll wait until a more reasonable price! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-18-VW-Volkswagen-T-ROC-Diecast-CAR-SUV-MODEL-Toys-kids-Boy-Girl-gift-White/264133367416?hash=item3d7f935678:g:-RQAAOSwEGBcOghN Having said that VW U.K. may sell mo...

Re: IOS 13

They’ve renamed the app again :lol: it’s now “We Connect Go”. By next summer it will be “We Connect Go VW Car Connect Car-Net Smart Services” Edit: Nope, they’ve actually renamed the other app (the one for the OBD dongle). So now there’s We Connect and We Connect Go, both of which do sort of the sa...

Re: Launch Control

Can someone with a 1.5 or 1.0 DSG get their ASBO on and try it? Everything I find online says Dry clutch 7spd DSG doesn't have it. Indeed I’ve also read about dry and wet clutch DSG (which I wasn’t aware of before), hence why I was going to ask VW - but may explain why it’s not in the handbook. Jus...

Re: Front assist logo with hourglass

Well found!!! Translated that reads as " Immediately after starting the car or after the system has been restarted, Front Assist is not available or only available to a limited extent. During this time, the indicator lamp lights up on the display in the instrument panel " Which sounds similar to wha...
