  1. Superb MKIII owners register

    My black beastie, absolutely loving this car
  2. Recently Cleaned Thread

    I have busy bee this morning, and now duly knackered after 4.5 hours cleaning Car wasn't really dirty, so I didn't snowfoam this time, rinse with jetwash, 2BM wash, rinse again and towel dry. Applied Fusso 99 for durability and then topped with Meguirs Quik Wax (as heard good things about it for black cars), glass treated with Hellshine Ghost rider. Wheels treated with Autoglym Alloy Wheel Seal.
  3. DCC or not DCC on Sportline?

    The mode setting is also available on non DCC (on the Sportline at least), with the exception of DCC setting obviously.
  4. DCC or not DCC on Sportline?

    By the sounds of it, if you don't spec DCC you will always be thinking what it would be like. On that basis, if you can afford it , get it If I had spec'd my car personally, I would have added it, but am I disappointed in the stock sportline setup ? No.
  5. VCDS options on Superb III

    Can the Traffic sign recognition be enabled on a car with high beam assist but no lane assist ?
  6. DCC or not DCC on Sportline?

    I can't compare to an L&K Superb, but I had DCC on the Kodiaq and ran it in comfort pretty much all the time. The Superb obviously feels firmer, but its not at all uncomfortable. This is subjective so TBH you really need to get an extended drive to come to your own conclusion. The Sportline is not 15 mm lower than an DCC Equipped L&K, only 5mm. Its 15mm lower than a standard suspended Superb.
  7. If you are using a mac, I believe it puts hidden folder/files on which the infotainment system does not like. Do you have acess to a Windows PC ? If so have a look for hidden files and folders and clear all except the MIB folders and metadata file. I did mine the other day, took about 50 mins to update the unit.
  8. Performance monitor infotainment

    Well, thanks to Superbbte, at least I know the boost pressure should be circa 1.4 bar. 206KW is what the 280 is rated, but they should have it in bleedin' English for us lot, beggar "industry standard" PS is also used in Japan, its basically metric HP.
  9. The 280PS Thread

    @superbtte So what's stock boost then ? TGR, How dare you mention that word in this thread !
  10. The 280PS Thread

    To those with 19" wheels, what tyre pressures do you run ? The info sticker in the fuel flap says 2.6 bar which is nearly 38 psi ! Just seems a lot, mind you not as much as when I saw the Spacesaver spare should be 60 psi
  11. Just a had a quick look at this and have a couple of questions. Is there a way I can get the KW to show as BHP or PS ? What max bar is the turbo boost stock ? A bit of irrelevant info but fun
  12. Sportline v SE L executive

    I used mine a bit on the vRS, missed them when not having them on the Kodiaq, and have glad to get them back on the Superb. Most of the time I let the DSG do its job, but every so often I like to have a play.

    What ? Some disparity between Skoda specs ? Never ! But seriously, I just pulled this from the latest spec list, it shows you as correct on the boot opening, but use the configurator and its a cost option It also does not show folding mirrors for the Sportline, but my MY17 has them and they were not spec'd as options.

  14. Sportline v SE L executive

    Electric folding mirrors are standard on mine, not sure about my18's. Electric boot is extra on the Exec according to the online config. Over Exec the Sportline has: Kessy, DSG paddles, Colour maxidot, Interior LED package plus and 19" wheels as standard. Other than that its mostly asthetics, seats and 15mm lower suspension.
  15. Columbus Satnav and Point of interest

    I am guessing you had to import Tesco's as mine only had Shell, but finding Tesco's isn't hard I supect the car hasn't been run on "proper" petrol in its previous 4,400 miles of management use, so I have to re-teach the ECU. Plan is first 3-4 tanks of V-Power to give it a clean-up, then onto Momentum But (as usual) I digress
