  1. Does vwroc have a parts order thread like audisport? I’m also a member on there, and there a thread where you can put your request up and it goes direct to Crewe/stoke (I think), who then get back with the price? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Managed 38.9 on a run up to Berwick recently.. it was actually reading an average of 42.1 for a fair bit Then I ran into an accident and had to take a diversion which took it down.. and this is in a mk7 estate... easily would have done over 400miles, indicates 450miles range when I filled (actually had managed 397 when I tanked, and still had 1/8 tank remaining.

  3. I get that, but the width of the “old” one that I have is different at that point.. anyway I have contactEd VW to check the point and see if I can get the correct bit Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I didn’t see the picture on yours till just now.. I could happily live with that... I think they must have modified the part, but kept the number as it was std fit for those cars... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. The original part which was on the job frameless mirror is wider at the base compared to the old one. This I couldn’t really modify it unfortunately Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I was looking on oempc for part numbers and for the part in question they list two different ones 5G087593, some with an “A” addition though. When I checked the numbers on the inside of the part I have though it is not that 3G0857598 So I think I have the hatchback part when I need the estate part Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I finally managed to get a frameless rear view mirror + trim from a mk7 golf for a reasonable price. Just installed and all good except that it must have been taken from a hatchback... the “lower” piece of trim which hides the wires is too short..(see photos) Does anyone whose either done this in an estate (or have a later 2016 model onwards (when this was std), know the part number so I can track down/order the appropriate part?

  8. DMC in Newbury did a good job on my old Audi A3 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Did VW fix it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Seems to be mostly around the drivers door, some traces around the two rear doors. Nothing obvious on the passenger front. At first glance it looks like nothing is there, but when you peel back the seal a bit[emoji15] Knowing vw, they will try and blame it on the kick plates... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. just been on the horn to VW about this. Apparently its a 12 year body warranty against corrosion, not "rust". "The 12 year Body Protection warranty protects all new Volkswagen Vehicle’s against ‘through corrosion’ for twelve years from the date of first registration. This is a complex issue that needs thorough assessment by an Authorised Retailer. The corrosion must start from the inside, moving to the outside of a panel and must be caused by a defect in the body of the vehicle, not the paint." according to VW. Sigh so I will have to take it back in to VW for them to inspect. The other crazy thing is that apparently VW UK have no details of me owning the car, despite it having been to the local dealer several times for warranty/service work - thus I never received any information regarding possibly extending the warranty - complaint coming on I think! Doe anyone have the name of the head of VW customer service/complaints - tried to get it out the customer service girl I was talking to, but kept getting the usual corporate run around...
  12. Has anyone else noted this? I was reinstalling my JB4 after going for a service and noticed that both my front door seals are showing signs of perishing (holes through the middle although the rubber itself looks ok), and there is rust visible through the holes (obviously where water has been allowed to sit... The car is unfortunately out of warranty now...
  13. Just booked mine in for the above via an indy... less the MOT, mines going to be £487.00 I’m having the MOT done at the main dealership as there are a couple of warranty points I’d like them to look at as it’s the last chance I will get as it leave warranty at end of jan.

  14. Oh I’m well aware of the price match option, it’s more the consistency of labels and applications that bothers me. For example fixed price services apply from the main dealership to cars above 3 years old? Now does this mean cars on their third birthday are eligible or only beyond this point? Asked VW and told this varies by franchise as to how it’s applied... also why can’t the cars internal service be more specific, I mean the computers are sophisticated enough now to track this....

  15. Very nice indeed.. dream car for me - unfortunately at the moment a bit beyond my budget as I'm trying to do up the house... Enjoy...
