  1. It's only held in the connecting piece by gravity really. Pain in the arse to get back into place. Not actually that useful on CL cars tbh.
  2. Does it actually run?
  3. Does the audible alarm when locking thing actually work? Never seen it work properly in practice.
  4. Not what the op asked though.

    SDI tuning...

    Purge in the tank does nothing really. We both know that. Did you not do the full setup like I've said before. That includes running your own independent fuel source from a pop bottle or something?
  6. Have they thrown in an aftermarket wiring loom? Ironically enough, the loom itself is aftermarket but the sockets are all ISO and would probably still work with the OEM radio. Worth a check.
  7. Anti-Hijack with the button on the door doesn't need coding in. Automatic anti-hijack does. Takes 5 mins to code in no problem. Automatic window rolling up is not so easy and I very much doubt can be coded in. Some aftermarket kits have it included.
  8. How often does it do this? It points to a voltage sag. Do both window switches do it? What about headlights? Being a GTi somewhat clouds the game a little because the ballasts will provide some capacitance ( @mattarosa? Am I right?) and as such a dip in brightness might not be seen. Brake or tail lights might be a good one if someone is stood behind you. I am still not convinced by your alternator.... or the earth. You said the battery has been swapped out so I'm assuming this is good. How sure are you of the voltages you're measuring? How did you go about taking the measurements? I'm also not convinced you haven't got a ropey earth somewhere.

    Need to swap

    On a 1.0???? You're taking the mick aren't you .... We both know it's not just that easy, let's be honest. Where's the turbo manifold coming from mate?
  10. Just try jump starting it. Some of these electrical gremlins scream worn alternator + failing battery.... at least to me. Might be wrong, but can't hurt.
  11. I don't know why..... But I'd be interested to see what happened if you tried jump starting it off another car with a good battery.
  12. That sounds like ****. If the central locking isn't working, i can't see why that's got much, if anything to do with the ECU. It is controlled by the CCM.
  13. https://xtrons.co.uk/double-din-android-8-0-te706pl-1 Get this one or https://www.eonon.co.uk/Android-Car-Stereo/2-Din-Car-Stereo/Brand-New-Android-8-4G-RAM-Octa-core-32G-ROM-Spli-Screen-DSP-features-with-fully-digital-processing-chip-from-ADI.html Quality is fine. Xtrons are probably the best hence more expensive than the competition. Eonon is okay. Fit like any other double din. Startup times almost instant assuming you have it wired in correctly. I've owned two Xtrons, very happy with both. Don't get the Pie versions, they're actually newer hardware but spec'd much lower than the PX5.
  14. 1.4 Petrol 75 BHP 0-60 13.6 seconds 41 MPG Insurance Gp 9 VED £160 - £200 Arguably one of the worst spec petrol cars ever made?
  15. Because you'd be lucky to get 500 quid for it and they're kind of comfy? Imagine what the 1.4 is like.....
  16. Doing 45 in 5th gear for 100 miles?
  17. It's not about CO2 anymore though is it? It's about NOx. CO2 is actually harmless to humans, it's harmful to the environment. NOx is harmful to humans and the environment. We knew this 20+ years ago, hence why the way diesels have been handled by HM Gov is shameful in my opinion.
  18. Hence why I see no future for diesel. Hm gov want them off the road really.
  19. I'm genuinely getting 40mpg out of the 1.8T. It's definitely more gutless than my last one though.
  20. It's not so much the dirty part, it's the horrible part. We both know how agricultural they are.... but yes, there's a reason they're 30 quid tax. Still can't take them into London though right? I have a soft spot for the SDI's mate. You know that. I'm thinking of buying one as a backup car.
