Default Still head over heels

Mates, recent job related changes the car has been staying home than being used , that said i have been able to use the RS off and on, the car is well into the 9th year of age, i say this will all the sincerity i can muster, she still manages to bring the kid in me. Totally love it.

Upkeep

1. General Service coming up. Towards Jan. I am not going to be using the car until then.

2. Will be going for performance dampers once i am back.

3. Need to get an annoying squeak attend to, which is coming on bad roads especially at low speeds and turning.

Thanks for reading.

Best

Motoringlover.

Default Good Bye VRS

Team - I have sold my precious VRS. Its not been an easy decision but had to let go, given the recent inactivity due to changes in my job and trouble finding parking for the car, i am glad i was able to find someone who will cherish car going forward.

I will miss the car always.

Best

It is indeed sad Sameer, to what you say.

Move is more driven from maintaining a car not being used than anything else, pretty solid car - never let me down.

Thanks

Shocking news ML, having been passive on tbhp due to busy life schedule, I occasionally log into your thread as i have bookmarked it. Pretty sad to see this move but i understand it is a logical decision. what did you replace it with ? Mind telling me the price it fetched ? you may choose to pm

Default Skoda Octavia 1.8 TSI Remap deceleration noise

Fellow members,
I have a Make III -2017 Skoda Octavia 1.8 TSI. I have remapped the car using superchips bluefin. The performance is fantastic.
Only issue i am facing is that while I am decelerating ( just easing of the gas pedal without applying brakes) i hear a squeaking noise from under the car.
If I map the car to stock this noise disappears.
I have tried this with a high flow filter also.

Any help would be welcome.
