    How to retro-fit the 312mm front brakes to a Mk7 Golf

    Was it a regular ATE disc or Power Disc ? :)

    How to retro-fit the 312mm front brakes to a Mk7 Golf

    Thanks I couldn't find reliable info on ATE Power discs. Do you know the weight for the 288mm disc from ATE ?

    How to retro-fit the 312mm front brakes to a Mk7 Golf

    I know, the lightest I've found at reasonable prices are from Brembo, at 7.3 kg for 288mm and 8.6 kg for 312 mm discs. ATE Powerdisc seem to be close as well.

    Golf airbags US vs EU version

    I could find a new airbag on the greyish market for ~200 EUR (recovered units could be bought a bit cheaper). I was advised to also get a new airbag cable (the short one handling the large current at the time of deployment). If I get the airbag computer reprogramed and the fault codes go away...

    Golf airbags US vs EU version

    Apparently yes they are, I bought a new EU version and it fits alright. Haven't got the chance to test it yet :) I'm not sure about the airbag computer, that has to be (re)programed and mine still has an error, but that's probably due to the new seatbelts :)

    Any is20 guys with dragy?

    You could give TrackAddict a go, it seems to be regarded as significantly more accurate than the rest of them. The company developing it is also into motorsports and they seem to put a lot of work into improving it. I'll also try it... come summer, when the engine will feel better as well :)

    Any is20 guys with dragy?

    Thanks I don't care about any device. There are several android gps aps for phones, those are the only ones I am interested in. There is a "dragy" among them, but it is poorly rated. The highest rated on the playstore is "TrackAddict" by HPTuners (also mentioned on other forums as accurate)...

    Any is20 guys with dragy?

    Is dragy the most accurate android gps drag app out there ? Others have much better ratings, such as TrackAddict by HPTuners...

    Guess the sensors in the picture :-)

    After searching ETKA it seems there is a secondary oil temp sensor, part code 06K919525. If correct it is probably the little fucker that's been giving me bad oil sensor readings. I'm still not sure if it is the blue one in the first pic or not.

    Guess the sensors in the picture :-)

    So you're certain both are oil pressure ? None of them measures oil temperature ?

    Guess the sensors in the picture :-)

    Can anyone help me identify the two sensors indicated in the picture ? If you have part codes for them it's even better, thanks.

    Seized turbo wastegate arm

    Does anyone know the part number for the N75 valve for the IS12 in the 1.8 engine ? Is it available separately, or only with the wastegate assembly ?

    Car doesn't pull, logs posted, advice needed ? ? ?

    So this car keeps getting weirder. Went today to a private VAG specialist shop with access to VW servers and flashed the latest official ECU on the car. But that was the least of it :) Car had begun to pull slighty better since yesterday and today it got noticeably better before I flashed it...

    Purge valve is also toward the front I think, so easy to access ? But can these 2 valves be checked reliably for damage ?

    Car doesn't pull, logs posted, advice needed ? ? ?

    And what about the diverter valve and the purge valve ? Are they still under suspicion ?

    Car doesn't pull, logs posted, advice needed ? ? ?

    Theoretically they have access to the VW servers and can download it. But in practice, can anyone here send me the genuine 1.8t software ? I can give all the details about the car in private.

    Car doesn't pull, logs posted, advice needed ? ? ?

    I have no idea, I just know it's been re-flashed (counter is at 1), and there are no details written about the tool used or any identification of who did it. So a mechanic who tested it said it doesn't look like the work of an official dealer. I can go to a dealer next week and hopefully write...

    Car doesn't pull, logs posted, advice needed ? ? ?

    Yeah, some valve or actuator or something similar, which controls/regulates other actual power generating parts (e.g. turbo, engine valves, pumps etc.), that is one of the prime suspects I thought about. Now if only I could find the little fucker, because it seems there are few mechanics which...
