    Golf EGR valves

    Hi guys, Apologies for the newbie question but I can't seem to find a definitive answer anywhere! I've been reading up a little on exhaust gas recirculation and was wondering what golf engines, if any, have this feature? Surely it's taking performance away from the engine and turbo in exchange...

    Stock audio upgrade

    Hi guys, I know there are quite a few threads about doing things to the sound system but I'm a total newbie to audio equipment so wanted tailored advice. I'm running the stock sound system without the optional upgrades. The sound is better than in my old car, but just a bit flat. I've played...

    Traction control too restrictive?

    Hi guys, I recently saw a thread by SHFT where, via vagcom, the esc button function could be altered. Having had a play with it, I'm stuck between two modes. In normal mode, the traction control kills any spin and slows down acceleration...

    Pieisgood999 MK7 GTI PP

    Update 3: The wait Hi all, It's been a few months and I thought it was time for an update. I'm at uni until Christmas, so haven't been around my car much. If you look at my earlier posts, I linked to a forum post looking at the strangeness of the stock intake. I went out and bought a rotary...

    Stage 2

    Hi guys. How long does it take for stage 2 to come out after stage 1 usually? Waiting here patiently for any news from apr or revo but seems like they're still developing hardware which other manufacturers already are selling :S

    APR Presents the MK7 GTI ECU Upgrade!

    I dont know where I'm looking tbh. I found a black box connected to the electronics by where the arrow points and it had part number 06(K or H?) 145 710C Is this the same number as would be on the turbo? If not, where do I need to look from the box?

    Soundaktor removal

    Update: Soundaktor removed So, I unplugged the soundaktor. Ideally, I'd have done this using the ross tech cable, but didn't have one to hand, so did the physical unplugging instead. I tried to use tape to stop the connection from rattling around, but couldn't get it to hold as access to the...

    Traction control button backlight

    Hi guys. I was just playing about with my car and tried turning off the esp/traction thing on the centre console by the gearstick. When every other button is activated, there's an orange backlight making the button glow, but when I press the traction button, there's no light. Just a symbol on...

    Benefit of start/stop

    Hi guys, It would appear that more and more cars are equipped with start/stop (more's the pity) I was wondering if anyone knew of a study which worked out how long you needed to stop at the lights before the stopping of the engine became beneficial to consumption. By that I mean that the energy...

    Road closure nav advice

    Hi guys, Travelling on the UK motorways in the early hours means that often sections are shut for maintenance. However, there doesn't seem to be a way to tell the satnav this! It kept trying to tell me to do a u-turn and return to the motorway, which was closed! Am I missing a button somewhere...

    Pieisgood999 MK7 GTI PP

    Hi everyone, I just joined the forum today after looking at it for months with great interest. I've recently taken delivery of a golf gti, which is quite an upgrade on my old car! It's running in nicely and becoming a little looser slowly but surely so I'm hoping to improve it and personalise...
