I have recently upgraded my 2015 R manual folding mirrors to original electric ones taken off a 2016 R. the mirrors and switch are all original parts, the install was pretty easy and I have successfully got the mirrors working (folding via switch, auto folding when car is locked, demister and reverse dipping etc)
The upgraded ones include puddle lights which fail to turn on when folding in or out. I was wondering if anyone else has faced this issue before? I don't have puddle lights on the doors, just a red reflector at the bottom so would this be the cause of the issue or would it be something else? does anyone know the fuse number for the puddle lights?
My 2015 R was involved in an accident and the down pipe has been damaged in the process, I've seen a couple of original spares for sale but they are of a 2017 Golf R. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this before? Do you know if this would be a straight fit? are there and differences i the 2 models etc?
Appreciate any help on this
After recent topics and discussions that I saw on the forum, I think it would be great to get a meet organised, booked and in the diary for 2019. With Christmas coming up, I'm sure a lot of you will be working and/or have ran out of annual leave. Now here comes the difficult part, where to hold it and when to do it. I know as a forum we have people from all over the UK, so I'm thinking of somewhere maybe Midlands area maybe Derby/Nottingham, accessible to motorway routes, giving you guys and girls the best routes without being massively far away.
In terms of the meet itself, I'd be apt to have this on a weekend morning, so it doesn't take too much out of peoples day, and it's a lame excuse to grab some breakfast and to have a natter. So the general plan would be, to meet up at a Toby Carvery or the like, meet for say 9.30/10.00 am - have a natter prior to going in to getting some food, then back out after a hearty breakfast for another chat, then away we go.
Who would be up for this? Obviously we have a bit of time before it, so it gives enough notice to clear diaries and the like.
Answers on a postcard, dependent on the outcome, there will be updates.
Ok I've had enough of one shiny pipe. Replaced oem exhaust with Scorpion downpipe with sports cat and scorpion cat back with resonator. Lovely burble with bass note, but sick of oem 'tail pipes'. Going to give this a go. 51mm in to twin 76mm out. Will update- bit of a punt but nothing else out there.
I was wondering if anyone on here would be able to give some advice regarding the maintenance and or repairability of a mk7 golf leather steering wheel.
I am the current owner of a mk7 golf r and my steering wheel is beginning to show marks and fade and I'm really struggling to bare with them. Hence the reason for starting this topic. I am aware of leather cleaning kits but it would be nice to get other peoples experiences before going ahead with any purchases.
Any help or advice is much appreciated!!
