    Thanks for the reply! That is very strange and I’d be interested to know why that is the case! At least I know it’s normal now though and don’t have to worry about it being a fault haha

    Hi all, just picked up my MK7 facelift R and I’m loving it so far! At the stage now where I’m just seeing what happens in different modes and I noticed that when in Eco all the gears show with an E infront of the gear numbers. However I’ve noticed if you leave the car in Eco and turn off the engine then turn the engine back on again the gears now show with a D infront of them even though the car is still in Eco when you go into modes? To get E to show again I have to press the mode button until it gets back to Eco. Forgive me if I’m being stupid but is this normal and if so can anybody explain why this happens? Thanks

    That makes sense, certainly if the is 0% saving with insurance! Wouldn't it be nice if you could get one simple insurance which covers everything without 200000 pages of small print! We can only dream! haha

    Thanks I will have a read of that section. In regards to GAP insurance I am unsure about this, am I right in saying GAP insurance policies will only pay out if your car is a 'total loss' and your main insurance provider don't offer a replacement car? Which I think they always do don't they if you are fully comp and your car cannot be recovered?

    Hey all, My 7.5R should be arriving in around 10 days... Excited is an understatement! However, I want to get a tracker fitted to the car! The VW dealer can fit one for me and it's around £450 - Vodaphone Protect & Connect 6 Cat6 Tracker. I know nothing about these things and after some advise/recommendations for anyone who has a tracker? Should I go with the VW option or is there better /cheaper options out there? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    MK7.5 R Just Ordered!

    This is true, I wouldn't have got the pack if they couldn't have swapped out the wheels. I don't know why they don't offer them as I had read a few people hadn't been as lucky as me at getting them swapped. So excited to get it, I'm currently driving a 2009 mk6 1.4 petrol so it will be a big leap!

    MK7.5 R Just Ordered!

    I went to for the standard White as I'm thinking of wrapping it at some point! I added the performance pack with the upgraded breaks though and managed to get them to swap out the Spielberg alloys which are normally included for the black Prets which I was happy about! Really wanted the Akrapovic exhaust as well but couldn't justify the cost! Maybe change the exhaust down the line but want to see what the stock is line first.

    MK7.5 R Just Ordered!

    Hi everyone, New to this forum but I've spent the last few weeks reading threads and looking at different topics... Great forum! Anyway I'm super excited to say I've ordered a new Golf MK7.5 R hatchback 5 door DSG and delivery is due early/mid March so it will be rocking an 18 plate! Looking forward to getting more involved with the forum once she arrives!
