    It's actually just paint correction and only their CanCoat product. The wheels have been ceramic coated tho'.

    [​IMG]

    The beading and water displacement/ hydrophobic effects are outstanding!!

    I decided not to go the whole hog on this car with the MOHS+ as it's had the Gyechniq and I have other plans for it. (For AiTP9)

    I am 100% happy tho, my detailer knew what I wanted and what my car needed.

    Your DSG transmission is equipped with a filter inside a fragile plastic housing. Unfortunately the plastic filter housing becomes brittle over time and often cracks during filter changes which are performed every 40,000 miles. Constructed of billet aluminum, the USP Cool Flow housing is far stronger than the factory plastic housing. Not only is the Cool Flow housing stronger, but it also incorporates cooling fins to cool the DSG fluid as it passes through the filter and housing. Installation is straight forward and requires no special tools. This is a must have for every DSG owner.

    The South Side Performance TX Race Series Lifetime DSG Replacement Filter is manufactured using only the highest quality materials. 6061 T6 Billet Aluminum housing with a 100 micron Pleated Stainless Steel Mesh screen for superior filtration. High strength perforated center section and upgraded pressure relief valve to reduce fluid bypass. The SSP TX Race Series replacement filter will ensure proper filtration under the most severe conditions for the lifetime of your car.

    Filter Housing Features:
    • CNC'd Billet Aluminum
    • Hard anodized clear for longevity
    • Uses OEM filter and o-ring
    • Limited Lifetime warranty

    Stainless Steel Filter Features:
    • Stainless Steel Filter Features:
    • Pleated filter allows for 300% more surface area over the competitions "screen" style.
    • Reduces Bypass Operation for greater filtration
    • Provides Faster Oil Pressure and Start up
    • Reduces Oil pump drag in Higher HP Applications
    • Pleated construction allows for superior strength over competitors "screened style" filter.
      - Lifetime Warranty!

    Went around to a lot of car dealers yesterday with my mother to look at cars, ended up signing on a 2018 A3 Sportback with the new 1.5 TFSI engine, being delivered in 5 weeks. Quite basic in spec but it has S-tronic, climate control, connectivity pack, rain & light sensor pack, parking sensors and Audi sound system. She got an awesome deal on a private lease from them, most likely because it was the place I got my S3 from and they even remembered the car and such (I also got winter tyre storage and other services through them that so I think they make money on me already). The lease fee including insurance and service (and warranty for 3 years) will add up to less than the diminished value should be if she were to buy it and then sell it in 3 years so she is happy.

    Was fun driving around that much, was not that many people out on the roads so could do some spirited driving. Made my 2015 S3 feel a bit dated to be honest, now that they got Car Play and whatnot as standard.

    No, none that I can tell mate.

    Quite like the VWR products I've installed their engine dress up bits oil filter housing, filler cap, dipstick, etc. The TMD was trickier to install need to lubricate the o ring first then insert into the housing nice and square. Emailed the pic of the Revo one to their customer support people it's only been on 9,000 miles.

    Rob, The looks great. Be careful fitting !

    However can you answer a question?? The black part is that solid ( ie hard ) or is flexible foam / soft rubber material?

    I was under the impression you still need the dogbone to move slightly. The OEM provides too much movement ( for some people) and thats why they replace with something like the 034 Motorsport version as this reduces ( but still allows movement )

    Will this new unit reduce movement to zero for the drivetrain? And if so is this really what is required?

    Thx

    Hi mate,

    LoL cheers I’ll let somebody else do this one it’s going in soon for DSG service and new rear diff oil so I’ll get it done then.

    It’s not solid the black is polyurethane so they’ll still be some give without the metal to metal contact and hopefully factory noise insulation.

    Lots of pics on line of the 034 mount bending at which point it becomes less effective so I’ll give the Revo mount a go. Lots available now some require removal of the subframe and also replace the upper bush but I’m not looking for that just a quick fix ......

    Thx Rob... I thought that it must offer some flexibility / movement. Just wanted to clarify. Glad it does.

    BTW...That another Revo protoype you got your hands on !?

    @Rob2k68 Rob if Midland VW are doing the work on your car, ask Simon/Jodie/Simon about their experience of the 034 dogbone mount on my old car..they're not big fans to say the least and either am I.
    Can't remember if I told you about this when I saw you a while back, it was a very expensive fix which required me to fit a new gearbox- Revo certainly looks alot better in design so looking forward to seeing how you get on with it!

    That’s a bl@@dy expensive fix mate !! I will be sure to ask them. Revo mount is getting positive reviews from what I’ve seen so far and I may even be able to disable my exhaust valves again as it rattles through the cabin currently with the 034 fitted.

    DSG service, rear diff oil replaced and Revo pendulum mount fitted gear changes are now noticeably smoother but difficult to say which has contributed most towards this.
