    MK7 Climatronic upgrade with instructions and pictures.

    Not sure if you figured this out. But for me my A/C wasn't kicking on at all. I ran thru OBDEleven and found something like "Magnetic Clutch" in the Air Conditioning tab, set it to installed and After that my A/C started switching on and off.

    What springs(or)coilovers are you running?

    Missed the part about the B8s. My though was that you are not increasing the overall suspension travel, just raising ground clearance. And when you install lowering springs, on stock struts, you have the same suspension travel, but less travel to the lower bumper stomps.

    What springs(or)coilovers are you running?

    I don't know about this idea. You may raise the ground clearance of the car, but you will still have reduced shock travel. So you might not bottom out the car, but you will most certainly bottom out the shocks just like if you didn't have the lift kit. Atleast for the front, if it is just a...

    Opinion on EQT vs Stratified?

    I had a stratified tune on my Focus ST. They were the guys for OTS tunes on the ST platforms. Their customer service and datalog reviews went above and beyond on my opinion. Seems like EQT is the guy for this platform as he gets the most attention across the board. Don't think you can go wrong...

    Mods you're wasting money on...

    Some more fluids dynamics observations; The OEM intake has a gradual reduction in size up to the turbo inlet thus creating a laminar flow which could theoretically make it more efficient than a very large pipe that just butts up to the turbine housing. That aftermarket intake also having an...

    Places to look for used GTI.

    I actually went to Ourisman about 10 miles from DC to get mine. Ended up being 6 hours worth of driving but the deal was incredible; had no idea why but makes sense now. OP, if you do decide to go new, I'd figure out the spec you want by testing out locally then pick a range you're willing to...

    Places to look for used GTI.

    If you're going to get a loan, a new S trim might be in budget. VW is doing 0.9 for 60 months; when you factor in the terms of a used car loan and the high used car market right now a new S trim isn't far off. I got my 2020 S for around 26 OTD, I see some used GTIs in the mid 20s, albeit...

    MK7 Climatronic upgrade with instructions and pictures.

    Well I've only had my car for a month, so the plastics are still rather forgiving. I'm sure if you get a few years down the line it won't be quite as forgiving. But for me, everything went back together without a hitch.

    MK7 Climatronic upgrade with instructions and pictures.

    Just got mine installed tonight. Few tips that would’ve helped me. -remove trim from around AC controls before taking out cubby. For some reason I could not get the cubby out until the trim was out the way. -the clip for the USB-C connector faces inward towards cubby (not seen when you pull...

    MK7 Climatronic upgrade with instructions and pictures.

    I think the sensor needs to be turned 90deg so that the air can flow through the holes in the green board. Not 100% but that’s how I thought it needed to face

    MK7 Climatronic upgrade with instructions and pictures.

    Our heater box doesn’t have the flap to separate into dual zones. That’s definitely not possible without changing out the heater box

    MK7 Climatronic upgrade with instructions and pictures.

    That piece of ducting seems to be attached to the heater box; which is different for manual control and dual zone cars. Which is why we don’t get the dual zone function with this retrofit. Probably explains why you see the position for the cutout, but it’s not done since this is a manual control...

    MK7 Climatronic upgrade with instructions and pictures.

    My kit arrived today! Also came with one straight sensor and one right angle sensor. Looks like they updated the kit. Appearance and feel is very OEM with the Aliexpress kit. I was going to source an OEM unit in case I wasn’t happy with the finish; but doesn’t look like I’ll need to

    MK7 Climatronic upgrade with instructions and pictures.

    Anyone know for sure if MK7 and 7.5 have the same clima units? Only things that I'm "Regretting" (knew what I was getting into when I bought it) is no climate control and halogen headlights.

    The official "Post your deal!!!" thread

    Just picked up a 2020 S 6sp in Tornado Red for 25614; Window sticker showed 30409. And they took my car in on a trade, matching Carvana which was ~2k higher than all other dealers I spoke to, and I didn't feel completely drained and run down from dealing with a car dealership (walked out of 2...

    Crank walk / class action (we need to get together)

    Oh the joys of stumbling across this thread one WEEK into ownership :rolleyes:. Has anyone considered the situations that caused the crank walk? High tq situations, Highway pulls, hard launches, etc?? With my old Focus ST LSPI was the biggest issue here so you just didn't floor it below...
