Cheers for the replies guys, forgot to check back. I'll put it in bootmode and try and pull the map, wouldn't be surprised if Narco did that so I'd come back to them for a map :lol:

Stuck on the Mk7 wheel I bought a while ago, need to order an airbag for it. @adam- are you using a MSFW airbag on yours or a non-MSFW one since you're running the buttons through an Arduino?

Also I need one but cba spending £300 on a bag, I'll resistor it out.  £300 > my face.

Best way to lose weight is not drinking mayonnaise/cheese/beer everyday.

Yeah, different plug, and assume some electrical doohickeys to make it work with the MSFW module in a Mk7. There are non-MSFW ones on eBay for about £110, might take a pop at one and see if it works. Thinking of blanking the buttons off with a carbon piece eventually anyway, cba with the hassle of them.

Bit of unrelated news: I graduated my BEng in Motorsport Engineering with a 2:1. Pretty pleased with that, now to find a team that'll take me on!

Good stuff man, congratulations!

I can put in a good word at TeamPrawnRacing, but I suspect you're after something a bit more legit than two of us fecking about with stuff in our limited spare time  :lol:

Cheers man, they've been fun. Some actual interesting ocntent coming soon which will help as well, rather than just garage techy stuff.

Careful offering around wiring help though, need to convert the A3 to DBW soon and my LCR could do with someone who knows what they're doing too  :rolleyes:

DBW conversion may be a bit above my pay grade but would be happy to give a hand when I'm back in England (provided I have any free time this racing season!) - I was in charge of the engine loom for our Formula Student car in uni and have got quite interested in all the motorsport wiring lark!

Oh nice. I don't claim to fully understand black magic so you're basically a wizard in my eyes now. Custom loom fab as a sideline, get involved!

Actually looking into it as a side business! Managed to get the tools I need - Ideal Stripmaster wire strippers with the nice Mil-Spec blades, crimping tools etc. So just need to find a few products to market now! Have been thinking of steering wheel button plates and the like.

Oh nice! That sounds pretty cool. Let me know when you're doing (mildly modified) ME7.5 engine looms please!
