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.
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 ;)...
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...
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...
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...
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…
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...
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) :).
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 :).
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.
Did it again.
Enable fan level display on Climatronic Auto
Skipped the way of go via Byte 11 and bit 6 (Blower status display in auto mode)
No change since it was not possible to save/store change. (Worked on Golf).
Tried this one /other way again:
