    Need help identifying this wire…

    Yes, that is the battery monitor connector. And start stop will not work without it. One wire to 12V (red) the other to LIN Bus (Purple).

    What did you get in the mail or bring home for your MKVII today?

    I have nothing to put on a roof rack but I like the way our cars look with a roof rack, am I contemplating getting one 🤦🏿‍♂️.

    Mib 2 844-878 upgrade gps issue

    It seems (to me) that early Mk7's tend to have the top level shark fin regardless of how the car was otherwise equipped. My 2015 Golf S had it. I would suspect it was a planned cost cutting measure to eventually only install antennas required for how the car is equipped.

    I might also ask... what is California money? 😬

    Lighter and smaller battery! Anyone?

    I run the G30 in my TDI. It shares daily duty with my 2006 Corolla 🤣. But short trips almost exclusively, my commute is less than 2 miles. And I've gone 3 weeks without driving it, started right up. i will say that if you (against all logic) try to update your AID in the car (8+ hours), even...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I don't see any stickers on that plate. And I see the camera boom so maybe just something custom made for a photo/video drive/shoot. Around SoCal "replica" plates are super popular these days, and I assume the rest of CA too I guess. I see them every time I drive, most often black and white...

    Heeeyyyy... I'm not that old, maybe I am. But man alive, I love the forums. Facebook "communities" absolutely SUCK. Part of it might be that I don't know how to search anything over there. But the other part is that even on New Posts the FB algorithm is selecting the top comments so you have...

    Arteon Style Blind Spot Mirror Cap Installation

    @misor1994 I suspect the brightness slider that you are talking about is one of the additional things you get if you retrofit the later blind spot radars (2Q0s). See way down this post...

    @RobotChug Is that the same picture twice or am I losing it 😂

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I'm traveling today, once the flash was successful on the bench I just put it back in the car to see if it would work. The only thing I even thought to try was the view button. And to be fair I had the view button working one time, before I enabled the button for steering wheel heat. There's...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I may still buy an NAR spec at some point, haha.. What I'm really trying to fix is the glow plug indication check engine light that us TDI guys get with digital dash retrofit. It's for sure a software problem. I literally first got the fault the day after getting the AID installed. And it's...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    @bobloblawGTI All is well that ends well! Flashing finished, put it back in the car and started the engine without issue. Firmware update shouldn't touch Immo, Key Pairing or trigger Component Protection but you never know when you botch a flash as I did. Anyway... I'm now rocking the latest...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Much dumber, lol... firmware update, estimated at 8+ hours... not on the bench because I was being lazy. I've got a lithium battery, so I put the charger on it and started the flash. Now I've put the charger on, with this battery, plenty of times for an hour plus. Well, it seems that after...

    Eco mode at startup

    Depends on the driving mode data set. It might just be just drivetrain, but it might be other things as well. You can modify your driving mode data set (assuming a 3.0 gateway of a certain software index or later) so that all modes start exactly how you left them after ignition cycle. Or you...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Something dumb that I've been advised against multiple times. I won't detail just how dumb until I know the extent of how dumb it was... But I will say I might be ordering a new AID 🤦🏿‍♂️😂.

    Piano black interior trim part number list

    Well now, I might find that out firsthand after potentially bricking my AID trying to update it today, lol.

    ACC Retrofit for MK7 GTI

    You will 100% need to replace your steering wheel buttons, but beyond that if you have front assist radar already you can most likely have ACC activated remotely by your vendor of choice. Said vendor will want a scan of the car to confirm first, and they will let you know. You also need rear...

    Piano black interior trim part number list

    AID does not come with dash piece, but the part number is 5G0857189BAAH. That's gloss black, I don't know the Polar Night part number.

    2023/2024 maps for Discover Media (MST2) and Discover Pro (MHIG/MHI2)

    My MIB 2.5 had 2018 NAR maps on it when I bought it, directly from the dealer. After install I had 09310008 activated. I could not update, even tried to force through SWDL. Now I have active 09310099, have updated 3 times no problem.

    Replace Carpet

    It's more tedious than hard I suppose. But seats (fronts and rear seat bottom), center console and all the lower trim pieces/sills, dead pedal will need to come out, the main carpet is one piece. The hatch "carpet" is a separate piece but it's easy to take out and it doesn't sound like you're...
