  1. I've spent lots of time looking for seat covers for my front seats. For the back ones I found standard Golf 7 seat covers do an adequate job. The front ones were a real pain. I ended up modifying a standard set of covers by adding extra cloth to fit the bolsters. Not pretty but I can eat my lunch in the car without fear of ruining the light grey alcantara. I did look into buying the waterproof Recaro style seat covers. I have even considered getting some leather seats, but I wish I could buy some custom covers ready made.
  2. I found this US service scheduling for the Golf R. Seems mostly mileage based. https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?7551361-MK7-Golf-R-Service-Manual-Schedule-quick-reference-guide I forgot to mention that the VW nipper tried to get me to have an aircon service at £139 and a fuel & air care service at £39.99!!
  3. Thank you to everyone for their help. I'll let VW do their major service. As I only do 3500-4000 miles a year I'll make sure my car is put on the fixed servicing schedule.
  4. My car is coming up to 4 years old and has 27647 miles on the clock. The Inspection service and oil change service has popped up on the infotainment. My local dealer has said it needs the 4 year/40 000 mile Major service. Is the dealer right? The car is on a QI6 servicing regime.
  5. Great bootspace for your nicked gold toilets. https://news.sky.com/story/cctv-released-in-hunt-for-golden-toilet-stolen-from-blenheim-palace-11825715
  6. I did mine a few weeks ago. The rubber grommet at the end of the pipe perished and cracked. I suspect eventually it would have failed and let the water go into the boot lid??
  7. The company that makes the Qi chargers for Golf 7 is called Inbay and they are around £70. Only for LHD as stated earlier. You can always get a LHD cubby hole off eBay. I plan to fit a Qi charger when Google finally enable Android Auto Wireless over here. Unfortunately the Android 10 update which supposedly has AA built in hasn't enabled it.
  8. Does the screen go blank when you engage reverse or screen does not do anything? If screen goes blank then the 5F head unit coding is OK and the video connection is a likely cause of the problem. If the screen doesn't change then probably its the coding. When I had the low line RVC I didn't code Module 10 and camera worked OK.
  9. I had the same problem and fixed it myself. I used an online guide to remove the door panel and I drilled out the pop rivets holding the speaker. Cleaned off the crappy seal which caused the leak and used a silicon sealer from B&Q. Then pop riveted the speaker back. Worth checking the drain holes in the door too.
  10. Talking to my mate last night and he says the smart features of the M27 east of Southampton might be operational. The yellow vultures are not working and the road sensors are used to track speed along with new cameras. The new cameras can be seen next to the road on thin poles. They are pretty small but I was able to spot them because I wasn't driving. So keep your eyes peeled and watch your speed through the 50 zone.
  11. Have you tried slot 2 SD2?
  12. I had a similar experience when I disconnected the battery to do some work on some wiring. Starting the car after reconnecting the battery produced an ACC and ESC errors. The errors cleared after going for a drive. Might be battery related??
  13. My drivers side tends to lose it settings when the weather is hot. I then have to do a reset. A few weeks ago I disconnected the battery to do some wiring and I noticed it started working again. Unfortunately, it only lasted a week. I've not had any issues with the passenger side.
  14. Might be worth checking the connections on the Park Assist module which is located just above the accelerator pedal. The park assist button in the centre console connects to the top connector (26 pin). Check for damage and maybe try disconnecting and reconnecting the connector. Be careful not to force the connector as there is a plastic button that needs to be pushed in to allow the slider to be moved allowing the connector to be pulled out.
  15. I think the High line and Mid line versions have moving lines. Check this place out: https://www.carsystems.eu/golf-7-rvc,tag.html
