Does the standard dv on the cupra make a noise On a standard car? Mine seems to make a loudish noise like a 'tshh' car is on a 58 plate

I wouldn't say it's really loud but loud enough to hear it inside and outside the car, sounds pretty cool though, unless it's not ment to make that noise

Only way i can describe it is it's like a tsss sound when letting off the accelerator, it does it in all gears aswell

What do they look like when fitted? Pretty sure i havent though, Could this be a sign of a split dv?

I'd be interested to know how you can tell if they are split or malfunctioning. Any tesys you can do or if it is just sounds etc,etc..

I'm not 100% sure mines fully operational at the moment either.

Ps. Yep photobuck vids don't give much of a clue!!

Silly question is a DV spacer the same as a blow off spacer?
