    Alltrack intro.

    Yesterday I had a chance to tag along as the VW Canada rep did an intro of the Alltrack for the sales staff at a local dealer. I have a '15 TDI Golf Sportwagon and prefer the standard wagon ride height to the lifted models; i.e. Audi Alllroad and Subaru Outback. The Alltrack was a bit of a...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    The high sidewalls are in fact the entire point of the design. They keep slush and salt from spilling over and encrusting the carpet. I've had them in my past few cars and there isn't a mark on the carpet come spring cleanup.

    Bulb Specifications

    As with the general dumbing-down of owners manuals on new cars, I found the 2015 Golf manual doesn't have any specifications for the car's bulbs. Although this link is specifically from Sylvania, the second column gives the generic designation for all the Mk VII bulbs...
