    Ace. I'll probably pop up for a couple of hours to say hi. Not much point in me rolling roading as I've decided to change my map to R-tech custom 2+ in 4 weeks. Nervous and excited at the same time.

    Decided to upgrade the mirror indicators to dynamic and the rear indicators to semi dynamic :)

    After @Damo H looked at the adaptors for the rear lights, I thought I was gonna be in trouble and end up calling him in tears (either because I’d have broken my car or electrocuted myself). But it was easier than I expected :)

    Yeah easy enough, just lazy how they don't give you the right fitment at the car end and make you dismantle the connector.

    Nice! Did you have to do any coding for these? or is it just a straight swap?

    No coding but not a straight swap as you have to dismantle a connector...

    Mirrors were a straight swap - rear lights were as @Damo H says, dismantle the light connector and replace it with a different one.

    I don’t think there’s any left, and they aren’t the cheapest out there, but I got them within 2 days unlike ones from AliExpress and other sellers from China etc. Other Cupra R owners had used these too so I opted for ones I knew were working and was willing to pay a bit more for decent quality.

    No worries! Thanks anyway.

    I’m the same - would much rather pay a little more knowing the quality is decent! I’ll keep an eye out

    I believe the mirror ones would - the rear ones won’t without you changing the whole rear light unit and I’m not sure if there’s coding required for that.

    Had a Zaustworx back box delete fitted. Safe to say it livens up my little 1.4.
    Would recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of noise.

    Had my DSG remapped with TVS Engineering Stage II+ software yesterday. Despite it still adapting itself I can already feel a huge improvement in the driveability and performance of the gearbox. Silky smooth takeoffs and gear changes and the shift points that were selected based on my engine curve are way better than on the factory software.

    Will share a more detailed review once I've driven the car more but at least my initial impressions are extremely positive!

    Ironically most of the branded stuff is just the same cheap chinese product with a label on it. Especially the stuff on eBay. Not saying the led indicators are but there are a ton of resellers marking up the price after buying from China and putting their own brand on it.
