    decided to change out the blue'ish spots for some projector spots.

    Also gave the car a good and proper wash,even though it will get dirty again within the first 100m.

    Yeah. Same here. Took me a while.

    Pressure wash
    Soak with soapy bubbles and leave it for 20 minutes
    Pressure wash again
    Wash with soapy wash&wax mix
    Pressure wash
    Dry
    Polish
    Vacuum
    Clean interior with interior spray stuff etc.

    She looks great now but dear oh dear. The gravel road will change that in a heartbeat.

    I can now finally say that the car is running the way it should.

    With all the issues I have been having I had a small vibration in 5th and 6th gear under moderate load and above 2000rpm.

    In the last couple of months I realised that the injectors from the old and new engine have small variances in terms of injection pressure/power. The old injectors needed less injection duration than the new engine injectors. This was clearly seen by VCDS.

    Eventually I figured out that this was the cause.

    Injector 5 was changed right after the engine swap
    Injector 3 was changed after the bad BP diesel in Bellville

    I then changed Injector 1 as a diagnostic measure which eliminated some of the vibration.

    Yesterday I changed Injector 2 as well.

    Now, the engine is silky smooth and the vibration is gone. Happy days!

    In short, my new engine is now using 4 out the 5 injectors from the old engine.

    Funny thing as well - I realised that the old engine's #5 has different numbers on it to the rest of the set. Perhaps that injector was the cause of the old engine failure or someone tried to fix it before.

    Impossible to say, but after a long long time, the car is now where I was hoping it would be when I bought it.

    Good engine, good suspension, new propshaft, some awesome lights and luxury/refinement I can finally enjoy.

    Thanks for all the support so far, let's hope the next chapters are only of nice outings and trips with stunning scenery.

    Maybe not such a bad idea. If you don't have a different vehicle to keep your hands busy, you might just pimp the Treg to death

    went to spar yesterday for some items. Got out the car. Try to lock..... nothing!

    Stood there for 20 seconds trying to lock the car.

    I wasn't budging and I immediately assumed someone was jamming my remote.

    The keyfob was lighting up so not a battery issue.

    Eventually car locked. I then unlocked and locked 3 times without hassle.

    Please guys, be careful out there. I know for a fact that holding the little blue gate motor remotes, blocks the VW keyfob remote.

    I tried that last Friday, held down my garage remote button and I was able to lock and unlock my Jetta no problem. I wonder if it's only a certain type? My garage motor must be a good 20 years old and the Jetta is only 2 years old.

    I'm talking about this remote.



    If I hold down the button the following remotes don't work - I have tested this
