Re: My new Passat

I see adblue mentioned a lot here, I thought the newer Passats didn’t use it anymore, mine doesn’t.

Re: So I had my B8 remapped...

One thing I will say and I don’t know if it’s because of the ridiculously hot weather is my DPF seems to be regenerating every couple of days, not sure if this is a coincidence or not, again, no change in driving style, just something I’ve noticed.

Re: So I had my B8 remapped...

Upto now it’s been great, I’m no boy racer I just wanted the drive to be more effortless instead of working the gears more, I’m averaging 47mpg around town, not been on a run as yet. Just speaking to a guy with a 170bhp CC mapped to 212bhp and 370 torque he’s had it mapped for the last 3 years witho...

Re: So I had my B8 remapped...

They did produce a 190bhp B8 as well as the 150. It was producing 159bhp and 273ft-lb before the map was done so it’s not a massive increase in bhp but yeah I get what your saying, think I’d be happier if the torque was slightly less maybe around 300 but like I said I’d only floor it in higher gears...

So I had my B8 remapped...

It’s a 2.0 diesel 150, final results were 192bhp 332 ft-lb which I’m happy with, I’m not the type of person to launch or abuse my car I just wanted more grunt in 2nd 3rd and 4th when joining the motorway or overtaking on a country road. I’ve had a couple of comments like “fingers crossed for your cl...

Re: B8 Driving mode selection

While we are on this subject when you select a drive mode it displays what made your in on the top left corner of the radio screen, when I turn the ignition off it hen changes to what street I’m parked on, is there a way to display the street constantly while driving. My old CC did this and it was g...

I have the mode button but don’t have DCC or an automatic so it seems pointless.

Re: What are the differences between a normal passat and a rline passat?

Thanks for the reply. I've currently got a 2011 passat but I do like the look of the r-line passat although cosmetically they do look the same. The one I saw which was a 2015 was very low spec. Only the drivers seat was electric and had no DCC, no stop and start and no leather. 2015 would have been...

Re: VW Connect - Dataplug

For free it’s ok, mines just reminded I’m due an oil service soon, tells you mpg, your driving style and where you have been, can also set it to tell you where you have parked the car if your in an area you don’t know, it’s not all about collecting flowers.

Re: 2017 sat nav and postcodes.

It is doable because I’m sure I’ve done it, the problem is finding where to enter the postcode, it’s so complicated.

Re: Rage Against The Machines! SPACE TO VENT HERE

My main vent is again about disable bays, my mother is disabled and although her disability isn’t visible she can’t walk any significant distance, the amount of people who give her dirty looks or tut when she parks in a disabled bay even though she displays a badge.

Re: Pan roof leak

I would never touch a pan roof again, had so many problems with my B7, VW replaced the roof, year later it leaked, local independent replaced all seals including the roof rail seals at a cost of just over 1k, year later it leaked. Sold it in the end, never again!

Re: Daylight running lights - LED

I presume the op is talking about the standard fog light type DRL that look yellow, I did them in my B7 and CC but not looked into it on my B8 yet.
