  1. Hi all, 2016 discover media, since the car was serviced 2 weeks ago, the radio sometimes refuses to come on, the parking sensors work on screen but no other display or radio operation, comes back to life when I reset the system, it’s done it about 10 times in last two weeks, I’ve booked it into VW as under warranty, but also the battery is low as stop start doesn’t work, not that I’m complaining. Anyone else had similar ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Has anyone fitted the Inbay wireless charge unit in their car ? Trying to find out if it matters being a right hand drive car. Not sure if the USB input in the cubby stays the same for R/H and L/H Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bubbling from fuel tank

    Mine does this too, I keep the car in the garage, I find it quite comical to sit and listen to all the strange noises the Golf makes after you turn it off, from the turbo timer cooling, weird sounds from the engine to the noises coming from the petrol tank Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    DSG PROBLEM

    Promise that the horse wasn’t driving the lorry Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I may very well be talking rubbish but I thought Yokohama and Bridgestone were the same company Mines got Bridgestone from the factory, they’ve only got 4mm on the front so looking forward to ditching them Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    DSG PROBLEM

    Mines standard, I was coming back from the FoS and got caught behind a couple of horse boxes, I had the car set in comfort, pulled the gear stick back for sport and gave it some beans to overtake It hit the Rev limiter in 2nd and 3rd which was rather an unpleasant surprise whilst on the wrong side of the road Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    DT Pedal box

    I’ve just taken off my pedal box as car is going in for its 2nd service on Christmas Eve.. Will I have to re teach the throttle when I fit it back on or will it remember from when I first installed it ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ACC radar Sensor Stolen

    Officially yes you’d need to get the ACC re aimed if you lower the car, i calibrate to +/- 0.1 deg vertical and +/- 0.4 deg horizontal so its rather precise, I also adjust the radar reflector lower for sports vehicles with lower suspension.. however if it was my car, and my money, I wouldn’t worry, put 4 adults and a boot full of luggage and the cars going to be lower anyway and the radar doesn’t self adjust for ride height Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ACC radar Sensor Stolen

    Just had another thought.. if you just replace the radar unit that’s been stolen, I would imagine that the ACC system will come up with a DTC ( Data Trouble Code ) that will also need to be cleared Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ACC radar Sensor Stolen

    I work for a car manufacturer, every day I’ll reset radar units, and can confirm you’ll need to have the radar set up, yes it’ll probably work, but you can’t be sure it’s aimed in exactly the right area, we have to recalibrate every time anything is done to the bumper grille area etc, the problem is motorbikes not being picked up by the radar I would also say that is there anything the horrible vile people out there won’t steal, I read about front Golf bumpers being stolen and was shocked to see just how many are for sale on eBay, I’m sure most are legit but not all, So sorry to hear you’re a victim Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
