What did you do to your mk7 today?

Continued my quest for RGB ambient lighting on my pre-facelift Golf. So many cool things in the adaptations! I've also started working on a spreadsheet with translations of every thing ambient light related, along with descriptions of their functions (as best I can find / figure out).

The only thing you guys care about, pictures...

This last picture has a feature enabled for which there's only a placeholder graphic on the Golf, gear shift. Chill outs in my be tool box will allow me to replace that placeholder with an actual graphic. I one day want to illuminate the CoolerWorx gear shift mechanism. If I get around to that I might play around with editing this placeholder graphic.

Went and test drove the car to work out any kinks.

All the standard errors are there as what’s normal with a battery removal. ACC, park assist, tire monitoring, traction control, but they’re not going away. Put about 20 miles on the car, and they’re all still there. I left the battery on a tender while it was out of the car for a few weeks, so doubtful it’s that. Cleared all the codes, and they came back. So something I’ve touched is triggering something… trying to look over all the plugs I may have touched, or missed to find the issue.

These all seem to point to a wheel speed sensor I believe.

Thanks, I’ll check those when I get back to the garage. Just monitored them in OBDELEVEN, and they’re showing the speed there, but wondering if I damaged them screwing with the front hubs.

If one was damaged I would think that the OBD11 would give you an error. Don't have ACC or park assist on my 17 GTI Sport. The ACC and park assist would need to use the radar sensors or whatever but I don't see how those would affect the others.

Flame suit fully on here…I had a dream last night about spark plug failure. Now I’m super paranoid about the rs7 plugs I put in last month. And the blog on eqt’s site isn’t helping. Not sure I’m feeling spending $150 on a set of racing plugs. Brisks or something else? What say you?

I liked Denso's but they need to be replaced more often

Here's 51 pages (so far) of discussion on the matter -- ultimately it seems to be sort of like the whole crank walk debate, personally I wouldn't worry too much and just enjoy the car taking the typical precautions.

Ruths. I'm running em with Stage 2 - lots of guys with Hybrids are running em. I plan to run em when I install my hybrid.
