    Auto Hold and Stop/Start

    Separated at birth! Fortunately! 😁

    Auto Hold and Stop/Start

    Just couldn’t get on with stop/start at all, gave it a chance but no. Same with the stock throttle response, gave it a few months but no. The only time I’ve used Eco was way back initially, just to see what it was like, and then a few times I’ve accidentally gone into it and then wondered why the pedal box wasn’t working at roundabouts! Pedal box, stop/start disabled, Individual mode (mostly in sport) and happy driving!

    October 2018 Nav Update

    I used to use Waze which was ok, but since google maps came to CarPlay I now exclusively use that. The VW Pro Nav is only used as emergency back up if Google won’t load, as it’s painful.

    Happy birthday to your R! I remember collecting mine like it was yesterday (it was 30th Sept 15). It sat looking sad, unwashed and very grubby on the dealer forecourt, unlike the collection pics above. 😁 But she was a sight for sore eyes after a long 8 month wait, and her grubbiness was blessed proof that the dealer had not prepped (swirled) her as requested.

    GTi TCR.

    She’s right on the pet front too. 😁

    GTi TCR.

    Haha! She’s right, they’ll look naff on an R, which is all about understatement with intent, but they look great on the TCR. That’s where they belong.

    Me too. And the seats. Love the the look of it.

    25% off GAP (ALA)

    Not at the price the dealer charges. Loads of threads on GAP insurers in this section so have a read through some. Bingo! 25 posts!

    If you don’t declare your mods to your insurer, and something happens to the car (and you make a claim) and it can be linked to the modification, then your insurer is is unlikely to pay out.
  11. Yes. Anything not factory fitted is considered a modification.

    25% off GAP (ALA)

    GAP is worth it IMO, and if you use a proper GAP company such as ALA or similar and there’s always price matching and discounts to be had, then it’s not that costly. However the dealer offered GAP is a complete rip off and often 2-3 times the cost, avoid that.

    Just shared views from some real world users who take more than the average interest in their cars and collectively have a fair amount of experience of Golfs and their aircon behaviour on a daily basis and over a number of years operation. Me too.

    7.5 Keyless - Fob / Locked Out

    Do you mean the car wouldn’t unlock even manually using the key itself?
  17. Booth11


    This. Use aircon year round and it looks after itself. In 14 years of Golf ownership I’ve never had to have aircon serviced at two years. If it’s still doing it’s job then it’s fine.

    Strange rear indicator

    As above. Sounds very much like it’s coding that’s got messed up. Hopefully with obdeleven and maybe comparing settings with someone, you might be able to work out what’s gone awry and what needed to put it back to standard and get it sorted.
  19. Most people that frequent this detailing section wash their own cars regularly. Some have pro details done and then maintain themselves and some do the whole lot themselves, including full details and maintenance washing/drying. There are others that have pro details done and then take their cars to a trusted valeter/detailer for regular the maintenance washes. So there are options depending on how much time you have to dedicate to keeping the car clean and how much you might be willing to pay for someone else to do it if you can’t or don’t want to do it yourself. If you wish to do it yourself, then start by getting a basic car cleaning kit together - buckets, washmitt, shampoo, microfibre drying towels etc, (see the guide mentioned earlier for tips) and watch a few good YouTube detailing videos on techniques for washing and drying. Don’t forget some decent protection for your car, be it sealant or wax, which will not only protect the paintwork from the elements but will make routine maintenance washing much easier in the future.
