Not tried the F1s. The reviews I read narrowed it down to Continental Sport Plus & the Michelin Sport 4S. Of those 2, the 4S are supposed to be marginally better esp with wear.

The car came with some no name budget tyre that had crap traction in the dry & were horrible in the wet.

The new rubber has made a world of difference.

What are the F1s replacing?

Will do. This will be visit No. 4. I think the exhaust guy is getting sick of seeing my face so hoping to resolve the issue this weekend.

Long live the farts :D

I'd like to say faster but I think it was more the case of me driving it harder to hear the DSG cracks.

Started by removing the rear suitcase muffler & drove it for about a month with the factory resonator. The farts were insane. Loved it. With just a resonator in the middle, it was too loud for general driving plus there was a rattle in the res at 2k rpm so decided to replace the res with a slightly larger round straight thru box. The car sounds great during normal driving but the farts are almost gone. The muff guys assured me the farts will come back once the new muff beds in. Not sure about that. Will have to wait & see.

Its annoying isnt it. I fitted a downpipe to stock cat back and it was loud and DSG farts were ridiculous lol

I then got a resonated miltek and lost my DSG farts. swapped that for a cobra non resonated box and now its back with a vengeance

Did you notice many gains from just the downpipe mate?

Did you have Eagle F1’s on before? I have heard really good things about the Michelin Pilots but just wanted to stick with the same.

I had a reason to believe they were Pirelli and not Michelin haha.. Yeah I’ve had F1s on mine since I bought it so don’t really know any different, does handle really well in the dry and wet so I can’t complain!

Trip No. 4 to the exhaust shop done.
The new muffler is still bedding in so the sound is not what it will be.

Will post a clip in a few days time.
So far, the note is louder & a little more DSG burps from trip No. 3 not nowhere as loud as it was with the original res.

Suspect it's because of the age of the original.

Where in the UK are you?

Yeah definitely get a fluid change and some decent pads.

Best to just go at your own pace the gradually build speed through the day.

Youll love it

I’m in Cambridgeshire mate, I’ve had a look at a few places like Rockinham, Silverstone etc..
I did see a thread about new brake lines, pads and fluid, is there any you recommend?

Hey Daz

what do you think about this? I'm thinking of buying it together with an exhaust cutter and do it myself. (clamps are included)

I've got a 2012 Scirocco.

Quick question ... does the exhaust sound louder when the car is cold? Image
