You gotta blast the heat.

Super uncomfortable, but if you can't take the moisture out of the air you can at least equalize the inside and outside temperature which will stop the condensation.
Huh that makes a lot of sense, don't know why that never occurred to me! Will give a shot, thanks.,

Golf Mk7 GTD Variant
Hi all,
here a question I was not able to find a proper answer for ..

I have Golf Mk7 GTD 03/2016 with bi-xenon DLA, AFS headlights. Is it possible to replace these with full led from FL version? (Only considering genuine VW headlamps, no Osram Xenarc etc.)
Are they the same shape, meaning will they fitting physically? If yes, is there a need for any other units, gateways, etc to be changed/upgraded?

Thx a lot!

What are the parameters for Cobb LC to work? At the track last night on no prep surface, annoyingly its on a slight decline at the tree making the car creep forward a bit which could be the issue. Every launch I bogged hard, probably taking a whole 1.5-2s off my time to 60. Ooooff. Once I get into boost I'd leave whatever I was up against in the dust though...that poor Camaro with a 1320 sticker and 5% tint....he left the track after our run and put a bus on him in the 1/8th. 😅

I’ve use the search bar and can’t find an answer. Anyone know where I can get CBD gummies?
Not just any CBD gummies, but TAYLOR SWIFT CBD!

Does anyone else have problems with their wipers turning on randomly? Sometimes when I hit a bump or dip, they will turn on for 1 to 3 swipes. Sometimes it won't happen for a few weeks at a time. Then last night it was happening when I was making left turns. I'll probably take it to the dealer, but I'm not sure exactly how to recreate it without driving and waiting for them to activate.

Only time thats happened for me is on large bumps where I say "Ouch!"..... "Shit!"

My hand usually bumps the thingy...

Looking at purchasing some second-hand Pretoria's, are these replica?

Edit- Realizing these stamps aren't very helpful. Going to ask the seller for pictures of the part number stamp.

I think you miss understand, I need a recommendation for a thin wrench to hold the stud so I can remove the grounding nut that is on top.
I took an old wrench and used my angle grinder to thin it out, had to take a lot off! I tried everything before that tho, pliers etc it was such a PITA

Seems to be reps, couldn't find any VW stamps on them.

Hello how are you? I'm new here, I'm building the Dynaudio sound system on my 2017 GTI. Has anyone done this retrofit bringing parts from Aliexpress? Are they quality original parts?
