    Service indicator changes mind

    Yes! I have changed the value of days with OBDEleven since I lost some days just before service. The Cupra was sitting to much in the garage in combination with many short runs.

    Service indicator changes mind

    I recognize this behaviour. It’s common if the car is driven for short distances and also isn’t used for short periods, say a week. Then if you take out the car for a long distance tour it could add remaining days and kilometres for service. Don’t worry, this is normal. /Peter

    Great, then I will do the same when I get the GOLF R (with EFB) back to southern Sweden where I live. It's used since two years in northern Sweden with temperatures now and then 10-25 Celsius below zero during winter. Often sitting for a week outside, not the ideal environment for batteries ;)...

    @RUM4MO Tanks! What do you think of filling dest. water to the sealed battery? Have you done that after running recond mode? /Peter

    Very interesting tread! Have a couple of Ctek chargers (mxs 5 and zafir 45) which I use frequently. One Zafir 45 is connected 6 months per year to our winter stored Audi A4 Convertible. Works fine year after year (classic lead battery). EFB and classic lead battery – If I run the RECOND mode...

    Cupra battery question

    You have an EFB battery. It could last rather long time. In the family there is a Golf 7 R which is exactly 6 years old (my sons car). No Start Stopp funktion active. We have never changed battery (EFB), I know since I had first when the car was new. If you are unlucky it will just last 3-4...

    What paint to use for restoring grille plastics?

    Plastic dip is something for temporary use. I don't like it at all.... (sorry Gokiwi64 :)). I use ordinary matt black spray colour, e.g "Auto-K" or something similar. Will last much longer. If it's a black "grill" i would skip primer (often grey) since it's hard to get the paint into all...

    Wing mirror carbon fiber covers Leon MK3

    As an OEM part. Sorry but I don't think they exist. /Peter

    On my cars, Leon mk3 and Golf mk7, I have it always off regarding auto hill hold. No problem, just use the E handbrake when I want, every day exempt when the car is new washed :)! You must use it, otherwise it will be out of function in time I suppose… /Peter

    Which one is the cigarette lighter fuse?

    ....and if you want permanent 12v move fuse 40 one step up, the yellow 20A fuse. See pick below. https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/index.php?threads/permanent-live-cigarette-sockets.317313/#post-6588764

    Resonator delete

    I have ordered two kits (Cupra R 310 and Golf 7R) from Progressive Parts /Manchester. Top quality! Spot on fitment which saves time when you should install it. I borrowed a double column lift in a workshop when I did the installation. Makes it much easier than using jack and jack stands on the...

    2018 Leon Cupra R

    @HowGudAml My intention is not to interfere in Paddys tread, but I have a Cupra R 2018 therefor I know the offset. It’s ET40 mm as you write and part number is 5F0 071 499 E (checked it on the summer wheels) :). /Peter

    Sump Plug

    Last time I did an oil change I reused the existing one. No problem. I use to have some new plugs "in stock" since we also have 2 VW:s in the family with the EA888 engine (as 1.8 tsi and 2.0 tsi Cupra). Not this time :). /Peter

    Ramair install help

    Order it from nearest VW /Seat dealer. If its VW order it to a Golf R 2014 (same hose as to Cupra 2018) ;). Inexpensive I guess!

    Ramair install help

    I just checked my Golf Alltrack 1.8TSI. Same short hose as yours. Don't no the size. By one for cupra 300/ Cupra R 310 2018.

    Ramair install help

    You need to buy a longer hose. The hose pipe/tap on engine is nearly visible on your pick. An alternative is to add a hose to extend the length. Then you will need a small “pipe”/tap to put into the existing hose. On my Cupra the hose is a bit longer than yours. /Peter
