    Westfalia Hitch and Wiring on a Mk7 Golf with a trailer brake controller

    Here's all the input I have to add: Our car is a 15 Golf TDI SEL DSG with park assist, front assist, and lighting packages (basically check every box loaded), so we REALLY wanted to run the proper wiring to get everything to play nice when towing. We installed a Forklift EcoHitch and the...

    Westfalia Hitch and Wiring on a Mk7 Golf with a trailer brake controller

    Thanks for this post/thread! Just installed the Westfalia 13 pin on my wife's 15 Golf TDI (not wagon) along with the 1-1/4" EcoHitch and it'd be a lot more difficult without the information you shared here. I did pull most of the fasteners out fo the lower dash panel in order to pull it down a...

    2" FRANKENBUILT MK4 Lift Kit

    The Lift Kit has been sold and installed! :) I now have 3 of the new custom lifts running around accumulating miles and will get more manufactured. It won't be real quick, but proper lifts for any MK4 will be readily available in the near future. It's been a rough road :p but we're almost there! :D

    New project: Golf Mk4 PD TDI 4motion 6-speed

    That sure is turning into a nice toy with all those sweet parts! A bit more than €587.50 ;) Only design feature I would be concerned about is the long hard-pipe off the airbag allowing little flex when the motor pulls back under load.
