    Golf R steering wheel in my GSW

    Hi all, I’ve tried doing a search but am not seeing anything relating to what I’m doing with my GSW. I have a 2015 Sportwagen TDI SEL with DSG and bought a brand new Mk7 Golf R DSG steering wheel. The Golf R steering wheel has a coucple extra buttons compared to my original SEL MFSW. I put...

    Any ideas why my window auto up/down stopped working?

    I’ve had this happen on every Mk4 VW I’ve owned, along with my Mk6 Jetta and Mk7’s. Seems to do it most when ever I disconnect and reconnect the main battery. Seems like in order for them (or one) to start working automatically again I have to cycle the windows up and down a few times (does it...

    Great to have a Tdi again

    Nice! I was real iffy and skeptical about buying another Mk7 after VW bought back my first Mk7 TDI SEL 6 speed MT. Loved my first one but put 44k miles on it in one year, hit a dear, got it fixed then a few months later hit a semi tire tread damaging the same side as what the deer caused. VW...

    MIB 2 Retrofit? Nah. iPad dash install *pics*

    Right, exactly.. I was looking into the MIB 2 retrofit and guesstimating the cost of close to a $1000 or more and a ton of coding which I have never done. Settled back for the iPad install instead.

    Not my GSW but my first Mk7 TDI. Lowered on ST Coilovers. Best riding coilovers I’ve ever felt.

    MIB 2 Retrofit? Nah. iPad dash install *pics*

    I don’t think I posted about my previous Mk7 iPad dash install before so here it goes. I did this to my first Mk7 TDI SEL with MIB 1 in 2016. I used an iPad Pro 9.7 with cellular, a secondary radio bezel with AC vents I sourced on eBay and a hard plastic iPad case that I cut and epoxied to the...
