Golf mk7 / Looking for service schedule
« Last post by Aparat on Today at 18:56 »
Hi everyone.
Last week I bought 17 plate mk7.5 GTI, and on my test drive dealer showed me service schedule book, but after collection I noticed its missing and they cant find it now  :whistle:
So is there a chance that one of you can send me some pictures, pdf or whatever , regarding additional servicing like spark plugs air filter and so on, because I have no idea whats need doing when except oil and inspection ( car tells me ) Thanks  :smiley:

Golf mk7 / boot (trunk) light on dark side
« Last post by nigeldodd on Today at 18:46 »
Piling up stuff against the RH side of the boot means the rest is in darkness. Has anybody fitted a second light in the boot to avoid this?

The Gun metal goes really well with Tornado Red MKgti, nice choice.

I can confirm they are 8J x 18 with 45 offset. I have the same wheels from CM, but in Hyper Silver with Bridgestone all season A005s fitted. The Centre caps are blanks that come with the wheels. I bought 56mm domed metal stickers from Ebay which fit perfect.




Thanks for confirming offset etc Hobbes.
The silver ones look good on your white one.

Thanks hobbes

They’re looking really good on your car too :afro:
A better width and offset than OEM 18” Pretorias.

After the failed attempt to fit the carbon mirrors, I have now returned them and thinking of going for the OEM gloss black ones

Got some new plates fitted though - aluminium pressed. Look so much better than the dealer screwed on plates.



Looks really Nice.

Looking good MK :afro:

A helpful thread too.

Out of interest, are they 8” wide? What offset?

Good to see the original bolt caps fit as well.  :smiley:

Nice work.

@Exonian; Pretty certain they’re 8Jx18 ET45.

Thanks SR :afro:

Makes a change from “can I fit 215 tyres on my 9.5” wide concave ebay specials?” threads  :whistle:


The new tyres are only 1cm wider than the originals so won’t be massively bigger.

Only two issues I can think of.

Firstly you’ll have to declare that you’re running wider tyres than standard to your insurance, sometimes they can get sniffy about these things.

Secondly is tyre sidewall roll. I’d guess at just 1cm wider it won’t be too much of an issue but fitting wider tyres can result in the sidewall rolling sideways a little too much making handling and turn in a bit woolly.
