That would either be an 'R' grill or a modded T5 grill. An R grill will only fit into the R shaped bumpers. The T5 is a standard grill with the honeycomb cut out and the slats cut from a badgeless T5 grill glued in, then usually smoothed and painted.

If you google "Scirocco T5 mod" you'll likely find a thread with a better description and photos.

IPhone issues, what are they then? Use both a genuine VW Mdi cable with the 30 pin end for iPhone 5, for the 6 add the 30 pin to lightning connector. Makes sure it's an original Apple adapter otherwise it won't work.

Tested in both 59 plate and 63 plate Rocco's :yes:

Quota limit is probably getting close. I've just increased it. You can host images on 3rd party sites like imgur though, then it doesn't use up our bandwidth and you don't have to much about with attaching.

I could be wrong, but I'm sure all the pre-facelift Scirocco's are model 137, and the facelift from the end of 2014 are 138

Thinking about replacing the tensioner with the one with the OEM code 03C109507BA from VW in order to prevent timing chain failure. Is that the latest revised tensioner? Would it fit in 09 1.4 TSI 160 hp?

Thanks :)
