  1. Has anyone had a problem with their climate control temperature setting itself to high? Was driving along and noticed it was going up in 0.5 increments 😂. Had to pull over in the end. Think it’s been doing it for a while off and on. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4p9vehsu9sin12j/Golf R cliamte .mov?dl=0
  2. I get around 36-39mpg on mainly A roads on a 50 mile round trip to work.
  3. What is the cost of the 1st service and 2nd service? Mines just 12m old with 7000 miles and it’s telling me: oil change in 135 days /6000 miles inspection service 360 days / 13100 miles
  4. Had an error message about front and rear parking sensors not working again today, but this time the centre speaker was making a crackling sound. Thought 1896 was suppose to fix this 😒
  5. Mines gone completely today. Had to use the key to get in the car and then put the fob in the drinks holder section in the middle to start the car
  6. Well since the 1896 update a few weeks ago car has been behaving… until today. Infotainment rebooted itself while driving, errors about rear assit and side assit. Speed signs jumping around from 19mph to 36mph non stop for the ACC. Rear camera a parking sensor errors 😤😫
  7. Replaced mine 3 weeks ago and now it’s saying it needs replacing again 🙈
  8. I’m in the minority, I like SS 😳
  9. I had a fiddle with mine yesterday, seems really firmly attached
  10. Just noticed a crack on the front VW badge. Anyone else? Is it replaceable without calibration of the front assit etc? 😬
  11. Can’t comment on the R line but the drive modes definitely work in the R, especially special mode 🫣😶‍🌫️
  12. Well had 1896 a week. Infotainment seems to be faster ( weirdly it wasn’t for the first few days after the update, might just be me), reverse camera is instant now when getting in the car and putting it in R. No error messages about parking sensors, R camera, side assist, rear traffic alert. Not noticed KPH instead of MPH either. Fingers crossed 🤞
  13. I’ve got the HK, if it’s removed you won’t be missing much.
  14. I read it as options rather than removing standard equipment. I’ve noticed that the configurator usually updates on a Thursday from past experience when I was waiting for my R.
  15. I had several issues - errors with parking sensors, rear traffic alerts, reverse camera, ACC , the usual . It went it last summer but there was no software updates available at the time (it was on version 1803) so as soon as I’d seen 1890 was out I booked it in, but had to wait about a month so a courtesy car was available, in that time 1896 was released. Was told today to keep an eye on it over the next few weeks and if there’s more issues to contact them.
  16. Mines in with my lease. Luckily vw finance don’t up the payments when the VED changes!
  17. I’ve been updated! Can’t say it’s any faster though.
  18. Same on my previous Golfs
  19. Dropped mine off this morning for a sw update (I presume 1890), got a call at 3pm saying it won’t be ready until tomorrow because “it still had a few hours to go”, and my oil level was only 25% and needed topping up immediately, was full a few weeks ago when I checked 🤷‍♂️
  20. I’m due to drop the car off Wednesday to have a software update to 1890. Bit worried as I’ve used obdeleven to turn off the lane assit and turn on Scandinavian drls. Are they likely to pick up on this and refuse to update the software or say I’ve caused the issues using obdeleven?.
  21. See a standard white one around my area quite often, with what looks to be an 80+year old guy behind the wheel.
  22. Me too, wish it had “lock when walking away”. Often I get out the car and go straight to the boot, then I have to come back round to one of the front doors to lock it or get the key out. First world problems i know, but it would be handy if auto locked when the key was x amount of meters away from the car
  23. That’s exactly what I did, the reply email was “would you like me to book the car in for you?” 😂
  24. Anyone have any ideas how to get the leaves out that become stuck behind the lower grille on the Mk8? My Henry hoover crevice tool is too wide and so is my hand!
