    DSG oil changed.

    After getting a call from my dealer the other day, my car went in for the DSG oil change today. When I said I wanted a courtesy car they wanted to charge me, but relented when I reminded them that my car had been in for a service a week ago, so why couldn't they have done it then? :confused...

    Noisy fuel pump?

    I'm wondering if anyone else has heard any noises coming from the vicinity of what I suspect is the fuel pump, somewhere on the offside rear, near to the filler cap. I've only noticed it recently, and it only seems to be after or during a journey, but not on start up. I can only describe it as a...

    "Fifth Gear" Discovery channel (UK) Mon 8.00pm

    I notice that on the Fifth Gear programme on the Discovery channel (UK) @ 8.00pm on Monday, those two well known presenters Tiffany Dell and Jason Plonker are doing an "old Golf vs new Golf" test. I've no idea what it will be like (probably $hite as most of their tests are), but might be worth...

    Glove box slots?

    Has anyone got any idea what these slots are for?. They're in the glove box to the left of the SD card slots. I'm pretty sure the smaller slot is meant to be a coin slot, but I've no idea what the two larger ones are for. Can't find any mention in the handbook. Any ideas?

    Do your DRL's go out when indicating?

    I can't find anything mentioned in the manual about this, but I was sitting in traffic at a junction and could see the Daylight Running Lights reflected on the car in front, and as I indicated, the corresponding DRL was extinguished. I tried the indicator in the opposite direction and the same...

    Anti-dazzle mirrors on the mk7

    I have a query with regard to the "anti dazzle mirror system" on the mk7. I've turned it on in the rear view mirror and the green light is lit. If a car approaches from the rear in the dark, the interior mirror automatically dims, so that's working fine, however in the manual at the top of page...
