  1. Hi All, I notiched yesterday my start-stop fucntion had stopped working - and in car status is says power consumption is to high, even though have nothing else plugged in etc. I've also notiched the car this morning is not starting as smoothly as it should do (struggling tiny bit), is this sign that the battery is on its way out? - i've had my obd eleven device stolen so cant check this, is there a easy way to verify this or is matter of taking to a car mechanic getting the voltage tested etc? I also heard that the batteries are quite expensive to replace £2
  2. Hi, Does the mk7 golf r bring up a warning sign if your brake pads or discs are wearing thin? - im guessing the answer is yes but not owned the car long enough to know for sure? ta, A

    DSG issue

    it just like it kind of jolts a few times then in a bit of a panic i think and try change the gear into park i guess, and then it just comes to a stop. it strange just think the slightest of touches would of caused to the car literally stop, but might be good idea to check the logs, i ran the OBeleven and got some logs from that but half the time they dont make much sense!
