Sodding car is broken again.
Wheelspinning all the way out of roundabouts tonight, on dry roads.
Got home, did a scan, Haldex Pump is knackered.
Same thing happened on my 8P.
This car has been in and out of the dealership so many times. Numerous things have had to be replaced. ACC fault...
I merged these two post's as we were getting a lot of the same comments on both threads & ended up with two 'super' threads 'discussing' the merits or otherwise of the Golf R's & S3's
So in reading this mammoth thread, from start to finish, you may find some of the post out of sync. That can't...

I have a S-tronic without the Hold Assist Option.
This does NOT work for me - does this...
Anyone else detecting some whine on the overrun?
One of the ways I can get the car to do this is to get the car up to 28mph, stick it in 4th, then let the car overrun through engine braking.
There is a whine as the car slows down between 25mph and 21mph.
Haven't yet determined if it's...
"However, the non-parametric analysis does not show crash reduction for significantly more than 50 percent of the make-models (fitted with LED brake lights). Instead, rear-impact rates actually increased with LED for the majority of these models."
