    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I appreciate you being willing to engage in this conversation @GTI Jake. Most people seriously overestimate the risk to themselves from violence. I realize that my individual risk is not the same as overall risk across the country, but on average, Americans are much more likely to die of Covid...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Yes, odds are that I am far more likely to be killed by Covid than I am by an assailant.

    Autocrossed it on Friday night and gave it a full exterior wash this morning. I installed $36 under-seat face mask drawer from AliExpress this afternoon. In case you’re interested, the drawer install required two bolts and two speed nuts from the dealership. Part numbers are N–900–880-03 and...

    More Than Meets the Eyes

    Hi Scott - good to see you here on Golf MK7. I really appreciate your blog, especially the advice you shared on trailer hitch options and installation. After reading it, I felt confident enough to install one on my GTI and it went on perfectly. Thanks!

    FS: Torklift EcoHitch MK7 GTI/Golf and stock (trimmed) valence/diffuser

    This is insanely cheap. I just bought the same item new and it cost over $375. If you want a hitch, this is the Cadillac of GTI hitches. Buy it! Shipping should be $75 or less by UPS ground to pretty much anywhere in the country.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Yes - that’s the one. There are a bunch of vendors selling it, but I assume they’re all pretty much the same part. Please let us know if you find one that fits the smaller new battery size on the MK7.5. Thank you!

    Help with removing dust/debris from inside speedometer cluster.

    Parking brake when off by itself

    That’s interesting. In the US there is a mandated clutch interlock that requires the clutch to be depressed in order to start the car. As for EPB, I’ve never seen one on a manual car. I like the fact that our US manually-operated setup is so simple.

    Parking brake when off by itself

    Missed that! Sorry. I just read “New posts” somewhat obsessively. It strikes me that if you’re really upset about this, perhaps you could retrofit the manual ratcheted handbrake. Expensive and ridiculous though. I think this sort of safety issue is completely inexcusable.
