  2. Jimbo's TT

    Service message.

    I've noticed that the "service due" warning message has come on in my TT TDi, message being :- Service due 11 days or, 6000 miles. Now, she was last serviced on 16/1/22 and has only done some 3.5K miles since then so, I'm somewhat puzzled, as I wasn't expecting to be having to do it again until...
  3. Jimbo's TT

    Error message?

    Went for a little drive on one of my favourite back roads this afternoon, lots of bendy corners and a few decent straights. I had just got past a couple of slower cars when the ESP light came on and the glow plug warning lamp started flashing??? I've never experienced this before, oh.... and...

    Alloy Wheels and Tyres Swop.

    Update :- Well I finally got the time and weather to get the alloys fitted, I had to wait, due to discovering that the CB was actually 66.6mm on the alloys and not the 57.1mm that it said on the sticker attached to the wheel box. ******! I ordered up, received and fitted the spigot rings...

    Hi neighbour!

    Alloy Wheels and Tyres Swop.

    Mainly down to the size required, 255/40/18. If I fitted 225/40/18's they would be a hell of a lot cheaper but, the handling of the car would change significantly and be compromised. I live in Dalry.

    Alloy Wheels and Tyres Swop.

    I must admit that I had seriously considered the Falkens after checking out the tyre reviews but, in the size that I need, the cheapest I could find were just under £150 a tyre and then I'd have to pay to get them mounted and balanced on the new rims. Sadly after just paying for the new rims...

    One is allowed to travel to Germany when one wishes, where, it is entirely legal. Ja?

    Alloy Wheels and Tyres Swop.

    Those speeds are only illegal in the UK of GB & NI, in her homeland these would be considered "old fart" speeds. I may be old and fart a lot but, I'm not dead yet, I do like to get into three figures from time to time. Particularly when my speed limiter :womens: is not in the car.

    Alloy Wheels and Tyres Swop.

    My speed limiter (the wife) dislikes the ride quality of the F1 Asy 3, 19's which are currently fitted, it's a shame because I love them, you can damn near feel every grain of sand in the road, however, I had decided to compromise by going to 18's with a slightly larger profile, 40's instead of...

    Alloy Wheels and Tyres Swop.

    At the moment I've got Goodyear F1 Asy 3's fitted, the guy at the Hunter Road Force place actually said that they've had several TT's with vibration issues which had them fitted. I'm really hacked of as, otherwise they are great tyres, if I didn't have this vibration issue I wouldn't change them...

    Alloy Wheels and Tyres Swop.

    Alloy Wheel swop to be done shortly. After putting up with a vibration for almost a year and despite having a Hunter Road Force Balance done, with only a short term improvement, I have finally gotten so *issed off with the vibration between 80-90 mph that I bought a new set of 18" alloys to...

    Xenon bulb query for my TT

    Hi Guys, I feel as though the lights in my TT are not as bright as they should or possibly could be. I've done a search on the site and can't find a definite answer, someone mentioned briefly but, didn't go into enough detail to satisfy my curiousity, so, can anyone tell me, do xenon light bulbs...

    Scanner code 01324 Haldex

    Final update :- Well the new ECU didn't arrive until Wednesday, mainly due to Matt being so busy he just couldn't get through all the work he has. Typically due to the domino effect of the part arriving late it was fitted on the Thursday, the ESC light went out immediately and the fuse stayed in...

    Haldex Oil Change

    Ach you're only as old as you feel. I'm in my sixties too and still work on the car, granted I tend to do most of my work in the spring/summer as I can't tolerate the cold these days though, recently I've done front discs, pads and calipers. I also replaced the complete seat set at Christmas, it...

    Haldex Oil Change

    An extra £100 just to loosen two screws and clean the mesh? What a rip off! If that was done at the Haldex oil/filter change it would add maximum fifteen minutes to the job. Oh, I just remembered, the Dealers don't change the filter, they just change the oil, hence the reason that it all gunks...
