Ae-50 looks good! Which workshop did you go to?

First set with my rims at Ray-s.

 

Second set at a tire set opp Sembawang Shopping Center.

Does Passat brake generate alot of dust? Hate to see rims covered with layer of dust.

Had that impression when I drove for the first 2 weeks. Looking around my car park, think it's not any more or lesser than other cars.

I am on 245/40/19 recommended by the tyre shop. Nice fit, I would say.

 

Did not feel anything sharp behind the steering wheel.

I think the sharp feeling could be from the stitching. Otherwise, it feels normal all over. No sharp or wrongly protruding parts.

Anyone tried retrofitting Active Info Display? 

 

https://avantage.sg/product/electronics/312-virtual-cockpit-retrofit

 

I wrote to them a week ago but have not gotten any response.

 

Bro,

 

I asked about retrofitting the discover pro 9.2" to replace my current 8" unit. 

 

Elebest quoted me 3.2k!!

 

He also mentioned to retrofit AID will cost 1.5k.

 

Any comments?

I was given another lead (not VAG). The AID quoted by Elebest is half the price of the price of the deal I am getting. I did not enquire about  discover pro 9.2" though.

It appears like Elebest is the cheapest. 2 other sources quoted me double the price. However, they assured me that the parts are genuine. 2 weeks lead time to order from Germany. 50% deposit required.

Wonder if Elebest will provide map updates.

 

Coz I doubt VW will uodate non-dealer installed AID even if it’s an original part.

I think u can update the map by yourself. 

 

I just updated my map to the latest version using SD card. I copied the files from VW UK website.

 

Took me 45 mins to update the discover pro unit.

I searched and found this:

Wondering what is the difference between database update and map material. Is it the same as what you saw for VW UK website?
