  1. I use the Thule rack on mine and can confirm it opens fine. That said it’s so bloody noisy you won’t open it.
  2. I frequently give the wind diffuser netting a wipe over with APC and a cloth, you’ll be amazed at how dirty it gets. You should also treat the rubber seals with Krytox to stop them drying out, it’s expensive but very good stuff.
  3. Krytox is what you need, fab stuff
  4. That’s very worrying. I dropped my car off for a DSG oil change at VW today, I took a video of the inside and outside of the car, including all the wheels, it’s sad I feel compelled to do this, but it doesn’t take long and posts like yours, make a compelling case. Hope you can rectify some of the shite they’ve caused.
  5. I think your right to follow your gut instinct
  6. Can you tell me does it have DCC & a reversing camera?
  7. I’ve just put Conti Wintercontact TS860s on my winter wheels ready for the drop in temperatures. I’ve run them last winter on my wife’s Merc, they were very good. I’ve got them on 17” wheels 225/45/17 they are replacing Nokian’s
  8. I run 17” monza on my Mk7 GTi performance (with the r brakes) they came off my mk5 GTI
  9. Hi

    can you recreate the noise by pushing the interior lamp housing , mine creaked in hot weather ,I lubricated the head lining surround trim in both of front corners of the aperture there,s plastic trim which overlaps push it down with your fingers and spray silcone under it, I cured mine

  10. I wouldn’t be without one, but understand it’s personal choice My car is a 64 plate GTI and I’ve had no issues with it and it’s used almost everyday
  11. I thought I’d seen some settings in the menu on the radio under phone, where you can adjust the microphone sensitivity, I’ll have a look tomorrow
  12. I fitted some ST2 paddles today, I found it easier to just turn the wheel a 1/4 turn and extract the pins etc with the drivers door open and me outside the car looking at the wheel side on
  13. You might want to try lubricating the seals with krytox, they can dry out
  14. I had a similar problem with one of mine 2 years ago, I hammered an old socket over the top and managed to loosen it. Threw them all in the bin and replaced with normal bolts- I suspect the tyre fitters had over tightened them with the gun thingy.
  15. Just put my winter wheels (17" Monza from my old MK5 GTi) and winter tyres on since the temps are dropping - Its not an R but a GTi PP, it shares the brakes so will show people that the wheels fit, just its a tight fit!
