    Golf MK7 initial start

    looking at the video (link below) it could be something as simple as the battery. What are your opinions. I did connect another car to the golf via jump leads but the starting issue was still the same. Doesn’t do it after the first few starts in the morning. Once’s it’s been driven it starts fine.

    Golf MK7 initial start

    Bit of a weird one. I have a MK7 Golf 2L on 80k miles. Drives perfectly fine but quite often, on the first startup, it starts then turns off. If I start it again it’ll be fine. Why does it turn off? Stop-start is turned off and it doesn’t crank unusually. Cranks and starts straight away but will...

    Flutter on startup.

    Hey Peeps. I have a MK7 DSG Golf. It’s on around 60k mileage. Whenever I start the car there is a quick flutter noise. Any idea what it can be? Noise goes away after 3 seconds and usually doesn’t come back. From what I recall there is no flutter noise under boost.

    Golf r swaying on motorway when bending/turning left

    Golf r swaying on motorway when bending/turning left

    Hi guys I have a very weird problem with my Mk7 golf R on the motorway. Whenever I go over around 40 mph and the road/motorway is bending to the left (so the steering wheel turning to the left) the car sways really badly. Turning to right is ok when doing 70 mph etc but on a rough road...

    Mk7.5 headlights retrofit to a mk7

    You can’t align the full/high beam independent of the dipped beam so garages won’t really be of help. I need to meet someone who knows what they are doing to look into this.

    Mk7.5 headlights retrofit to a mk7

    So what would be the way around it? What would we do to overcome the problem? Would it be buying a new set of headlights? Or could I align them up somehow?

    Mk7.5 headlights retrofit to a mk7

    I though exactly what you did So I asked the owner and he said he had a front end hit so he used a full front end off another 7.5 golf R To facelift his own so he is 100% sure they are genuine.

    Mk7.5 headlights retrofit to a mk7

    Just a quick question for everyone. Can the full beam be thrown further out with coding? I bought my car, a mk7 golf R, fully retrofitted With 7.5 headlight.!But, the full beams throw as far as the normal beams so if I flash at someone they never see it. The full beam has to be raised...
