What did you do to your mk7 today?

Got my b-pillar trims polished and cut some 3M clear film to protect them. Attempted the install myself, and quickly realized that it’s not a skill set that I possess. Will either have a pro do it, or just keep polishing them as needed.

Incidentally, Duragloss 501 Marine and RV Polish, with a black Lake Country 4” polishing pad on an ancient Porte Cable DA polisher, was all the pillars needed. Cleaned them right up.

Not today, but 2 days ago...

Activated the OEM car alarm on my '17 GTI. It took a lot of searching and Google Translate to get it done.

Thanks to southpawboston as usual for his OBDeleven mods spreadsheet. I used that as the base and had to look online for just a few more clues because of some differences.

I still don't understand why it's disabled from the factory in NAR.

Installed rear reflector inserts and put in license plate LEDs. Also installed new outer tails because mine had stress tracks since day one that propagated over time.

I've seen some posts say that some mk7s have them enabled. Idr if it's the Golf R.

Try the following: leave your window open, lock the car using your key or the outside door handle dimple, and then open the door from the inside door handle. Idr if you need to wait a minute for the alarm to arm. If your alarm isn't enabled, then your door will open without anything happening afterwards lol.

Did not do it today, rather earlier this week. Took ole girl in for an oil change and 40K service. Came out a day later with a new water pump, thermostat housing and oil cooler. Sad thing is no indications that I was leaking either fluid. Luckily I still had a few miles left on my power train warranty.

I'd say probably. It's definitely worth trying to code it at least.

Look for his username in these forums, and you'll see the link in his signature.

Nope. The pressure tank on my well ruptured. Water flowed through my parking area. Taking forever for it to dry out

Sorry to hear. Hope it's all fixed and dries soon.. that really sucks.

It really ticks me off when I have to drive through construction areas where the dump trucks drop piles of mud on the roads and no way around it. I like my tires clean!
