    Haven't done anything about it TBH. I did a scan recently after getting my car back from panel repairers (hail damage) and don't recall seeing the error again. Are you having similar issue?

    Not really a **** comment. I had an R36 that had some issues which I inherited when I purchased it 80,000km old. The car had impeccable records by VW dealer servicing. That turned out to be useless...

    So how can you tell if its just the tensioner, or the guides making the racket? (I have the same engine in our MY12 CC and it's now passed 80,000km. No noise yet.)

    I had an MY10 R36 which had the timing chain /tensioner noise and was only 80,000 km old.
    I didn't want to deal with it so I sold it

    Hi guys,
    Been a while since I updated this thread. I'm still using my "Elmura Cold Air Ram Mod" but now on my CC. The buyer of the R36 was keen to keep it on so I had to make a new one for the CC.
