  1. Sportline tyres - need input please

    The Pirelli's may be not the best, but from my experience, I would take them any day over Bridgestones

    Nah stick to black magic, you don't want a lacquered primer car
  5. Superb MKIII owners register

    Keyless is such a handy feature, I wouldn't want to be without. I am sure you will feel the same soon enough The car looks great, nice colour and wheel combo

    No issues NVH for me, and the Superb is a lot quieter than the Octavia's I owned previously. The 2.0 TSi is a peach of a unit in either 220 or 280 form, and fits perfectly with the DSG IMO.

    TBH no creativity needed, very straightforward with a small wrench, a pin vice and some steering.

    @matty306 Welcome My last 5 cars have been Skoda's, First was an Octy estate MK2 1.2 petrol, then onto Octy vRS Diesel, Octy vRS 220 DSG Petrol, then a short lived stint with the disaster that I called the Kodicrap. Currently in the Superb Sportline 280 and can easily say it far and away the best car I have owned. Like you I love its understated but handsome look, it does everything well and when you want to get a move on, it goes like ... well you know what What you will find over the Octy, (apart from the extra room) is a much more supple ride (even on sportline suspension) and a quieter car as regards interior noise. To be honest, I fancy trying something else in a couple of years at changeover time. I am lost as to what I could get that's affordable, has the legroom room of the Superb with a nice bit of poke too. Like you I am tall, and I have 3 kids, the eldest (14) being taller now than my wife. So rear legroom, once I am in position at the wheel, is a major consideration. I think you will love the Superb, as most of us owners do
  9. Have ordered obdeleven for my '16 190 TDI

    I struggled initially with TSR but , follow this and all worked fine (thanks to @Gizmo). Adaptations Select channel: (63) Car_Function_List_BAP_Gen2-traffic_sign_recognition_0x21 Adjust Value to activated Channel: (151) Car_Function_Adaptations_Gen2-menu_menu_display_road_sign_identification Adjust Value to activated Controller 17 (Instruments) 07 Coding Byte 5 Bit 2 Enable - “Traffic Sign Recognition installed" Controller 5F (Information Electr.) 07 - Coding Byte 24 Bit 6 - untick Traffic Sign Display (VZA) active Controller A5 (Front / front view camera) 07 - Coding Byte 16 Bit 4 - tick this box: Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR/VZE) active [PR-QR9] One of the above bits does not have a shortcut, you need to go into the coding section, it was either last or one before last IIRC.
  10. TSR - is there a way to adjust the leeway ?

    Thanks, I'll have a look for that, can't recall seeing it but possibly just poor memory
  11. The Superb III Picture thread

    What size spacers on that Enriquez ?
  12. TSR - is there a way to adjust the leeway ?

    Yes, in the infotainment menu I can have: notification off, visual warning only or visual and audio warning. No speed threshold set, its just detecting the 70mph limit and being very fussy about going a tiny bit over
  13. Having enabled TSR with OBDeleven, I am happy with getting a bong if I should exceed the posted limit. However, it is very accurate,and although not a problem most of the time, when using cruise set at 70 its constantly telling me off ! Ok I can get round it by setting cruise to just above or below, but is there a way to adjust its warnings to allow for a couple of mph over before triggering ?
