    Creaking front passenger seat

    wd40 DRY lube being the key here. wd40 itself isnt necessarily a lubricant. i would shoot for a teflon spray lube. blaster makes a good one

    Noise from engine, mk7 1.6 tdi

    "my car makes a noise while its running what is the noise" Sounds like the engine might be running or something. try shutting off the car and seeing if the noise is still there

    Tuning Gurus - Is This Too Good to be True?

    They even have one for my 8 cylinder turbo beetle from 2005. 60hp for only 100 bucks! definitely not real man. this is most likely just one of those blinker circuit ebay scams

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    bird shit is super abrasive and acidic so it eats the clear easily. i have a hazy spot on my roof from letting bird shit sit for a day in the sun. hit it with some polishing compound and it should be good

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I usually do about 2 gallons of e85 and 8 gallons of 93 when i fill up in the summer. Never had a gage but the math put me in the right range.

    I've had mine since 2016, bought new, now have 67k miles on it. I don't think I'll ever get rid of it. I absolutely love the thing. Its got great styling, super fun to drive, probably the most aftermarket support of any platform I can think of besides Honda's, and the build quality/feel of the...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    thats unfortunately how it always works. get the insurance after an event, and the cat hasnt had to go to the vet in the past 4 years since that happened... go figures. per insurance companies can be kinda shitty too when it comes to deciding what they want to cover. My wife has had good success...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    we had an emergency expensive vet bill like this for a cat that needed all his teeth removed because he was allergic to them. nowhere near as expensive as yours was but it was enough to make us get pet insurance for all our animals. hope your pup is doing okay!
