    What did you do to your MK7 today?

    Currently considering replacing this tire. Rear Right. I wonder if this type of wear is abnormal, I'm not the best at timely rotating my tires and I do have the 1.5 inch lift with Alltrack springs (rear only). Picture attached is touched up a bit to enhance the details. It seems like some...

    2015 Golf TDI long crank first start of the day

    Since having my new AGM battery in, the long start has occurred once or twice at least. Notably different is the cranking speed of the motor, it cranks faster but there is still some issue once a blue moon, accompanied by the suction noise when I open the fuel cap.

    What did you do to your MK7 today? 72ah size, this is the one I ordered and the quality felt comprable to OEM. Some have said the cloth covers are sometimes thin junk but this one worked great for me. Gotta Insulate the AGM

    What did you do to your MK7 today?

    I grabbed an Everstart H6 AGM from Walmart @ $169 and installed it with my fresh Aliexpress cloth cover. Coded her in with OBD11 and thats about it for today. I might be installing a trailer harness soon, which will be a chore.

    Low Fuel Rail Pressure

    correct me if I'm wrong but I once read that once a fault hits 256 times not detected on ignition cycles, it clears from the ecu? That may be incorrect or very outdated but you could clear it with a scan tool. Edit: yeah Im sure you dont have an 8 bit ECU from the early 90s so you're gonna have...

    What did you do to your MK7 today?

    Something comes to mind, driving modes! Is that a big rabbithole? My unit has CP off and FeCs taken care of, is there long coding needed on the BCM or does that need to be a highline version?

    What did you do to your MK7 today?

    I was debating the glass screen but I settled on the screen the 2016 golfs came with because it mimics the original look closely, and on price. The screen was $65 shipped, and used original trim. I really like the brushed silver trim look. Then again, I have not seen the other colors in person...

    What did you do to your MK7 today?

    MIB2 with 6.5 screen installed, wasn't more than 2-3 hours of time. Really enjoying it so far

    Coolant blown out from expansion bottle

    Got really paranoid about that silica packet, took it out. Turkey baster'd the expansion tank and added fresh G13.

    2015 Golf TDI long crank first start of the day

    This has got to be a contributor to some degree. I might order a new diesel fuel cap soon. Is there a dedicated vent on the tank that may or may not be clogged? I will add, I am 90%+ confident I never experienced this...

    2015 Golf TDI long crank first start of the day

    Opened my fuel cap today and heard an insanely loud whoosh noise (sucking air in) Venting fuel cap issue? I haven't had any long cranks for a few weeks though.

    Low Fuel Rail Pressure

    No, not you ;) I found this video on Youtube, maybe related to your intermittent issue. The guy speaks a foreign language but tell me at the 5:59 mark it appears he is showing the audience a melted sleeve causing a short on some wire? Edit: I found your original thread, you mentioned having...

    LIFTING a mk7 TDI Sportwagen thread

    This looks like fun. 2 inch shaft extension for MQB cars. Now if you use these on the GSW, catch some air what will get ripped off first, your brake lines or what else? Would the springs...

    What did you do to your MK7 today?

    Still waiting for my MIB2 parts to come in, so I have nothing better to do. I was watching a video of the New Taos. It comes in FWD and 4motion, the FWD vehicles being equipped with a torsion rear end like the GSW. I wonder if this aero cover will fit the GSW... In fact many parts from the Taos...
