Haldex service on 23.800km
Pictures will tell the story, suggest to do it even earlier.
I thought that it should be done every 60k km , thats suprise
If you want some DM me then any issue with fitment can be resolved,I can also give you free postage and £24 total
Its been a while since i checked but I think the Haldex is every 3 years.
It is 3 years on the Golf R.
Cleaning the filter doesn’t form part of the Haldex service schedule on the Golf R, although many owners over on VWROC.com ask for the filter to be cleaned. The pictures of the Haldex filter posted above by @S4BiT shows how gunged up the filter gets, so it seems stupid to change the oil but not clean the filter!
Is the Haldex VAQ on the 2WD the same as the 4 Drive version?
The FWD cars such as Cupra Hatch and GTI Performance use a Limited slip differential (LSD), where the Haldex is more complex and uses clutch plates etc i believe the LSD is basically a torque vectoring device..
I'm happy to be educated by a more mechanically orientated person though!
Only at idle. But it's bad! I've got under about 4 times to recheck the nuts are torqued (which they were).
There's definitely a Haldex on the fwd cars. I just wondered how it differed. I found some decent material on them after my curiosity got the better of me. The latest gen 5 Haldex which I believe is what the Cupra ST has and what the VAQ (Fwd variant) is based on don't use filters. Instead they use a fixed mesh. It's recommended that both types are serviced every 20k miles so you don't have what has happened in the pics above where the gunk build up on the mesh.
Survived Paris! On our way home back through France I decided to surprise my wife with an impromptu visit to Paris City Centre and a trip up the Eiffel Tower.
What was I thinking driving my own car into Paris and then even worse leaving at rush hour.
The only way I’ll ever drive in Paris again is either:
A ) A hire car with all the insurances taken out.
B ) A smashed up heap of a car that looks like it starred in Mad Max.
C ) In an APV or Tank.
Best time had in Paris was going round and round the Arc de Triumph in a Purple Bus playing dodge with all the cars and with the driver blowing his horn continuously.
You are a Brave Man driving in Paris and must have gained masses of Brownie (Intercooler/Carbon Spoiler) Points doing it.

The worse bit was the sat nav wanted to take me there (around the arc de triumph). It’s my favourite part of Paris (went a few times before meeting the wife) but there was no way I was going there so followed an alternative route, but then it would say there were traffic restrictions and re route me a different way but back there across a different route. I had to go miles away to get it to stop lol
I enjoyed driving in Paris (hire cars) and around the Arc de Triomphe. My wife said if she drove into the traffic that location she'd eventually run of of fuel just going round...and round..and round, too scared to cross over for an exit
Fitted theoldboys old splitter today, side skirts next.

and whilst @ray was doing that a few of us went to Doncaster for a SCN Meet
Check out the pictures here
Got some tints put on over the weekend - really pleased with the results.
Drove to Perth and back for team meeting, weather wasn't great but had a nice run with a few quick cars on the way.
