Golf mk7 / Re: mk7 paint finish
« Last post by Watts on Today at 21:12 »
I find paint thickness no problem, between myself and a selection of myopic drivers, my TR car has visited the bodyshop a few times now and around 50% of panels have extra paint on them :rolleyes:

Golf mk7 / Re: Still got no idea which tyres?!?
« Last post by Watts on Today at 21:06 »
This has just got a bit trickier, was sold on the Michelins but have just checked the prices on blackcircles. P Zeros just under £600, Conti 6s about £630 and PS4S at £780. The P Zeros have been updated recently and review well, pretty happy with my current ones having covered near 20k miles so not sure I want to spend the extra £180, that's 200 packets of pork scratchings! Hmmm....

Golf mk7 / Re: Switching off keyless entry when washing the car?
« Last post by Pixwix on Today at 20:52 »
I put the wipers in the service position then put the keys on the driver's seat. It won't lock with the keys inside.
Don't know how I managed it but I managed once to lock my keys in the car...well the boot, is that why? Wasn't while I was washing it though unfortunately but out and about so had to get home for the spare. Never worked out how I did it...chucked sports bag with keys in into the boot ...ah think ive answered my own question, I obv hadn't unlocked the doors but went straight to the boot ..

Golf mk7 / mk7 paint finish
« Last post by mkviken on Today at 20:51 »
My white mk6 had slight orange peel on the doors and some dust debris above the windscreen stuck in the paint.

My mk7 is just as bad if not worse for orange peel but as it is red it is easier to see imperfections. At least all the edges are caught on the mk7 though. Paint on bumpers appears just as thin as in the mk6 though.

The mk6 had missed edges where the rear number plate lights are and in door jambs and under th bonnet.

Mk7 also has a bit of debris in the paint above the windscreen which is so bloody annoying. The body is cleaned twice before paint and there’s a squad of factory workers that inspect the car after paint etc and they allow this?

Golf mk7 / Re: What have you done to your MK 7 today ?

Another bonus for DSG... no dodgy eBay door stops, no creaky springs.

You're right, but us manual drivers get to drive our cars :whistle:

I push mine everywhere. It’s doing my back in.  :cry:   :laugh:

...or just don't bother speccing it in the first place and save yourself £365 and all the pratting about. I thought the whole point of keyless was to make life easier?  :whistle:

Keyless is great and well worth the money. And no pratting about unless you are too stupid to put your keys out of range whilst you clean it.  :whistle:

Didn’t spec it, it was free!
And I wouldn’t be without it.

Golf mk7 / Re: Anyone find ACC brakes very late?
« Last post by Excession_OCP on Today at 19:58 »
Yes the parking sensors do brake if you have that enabled... I reverse down a slope to the road and it thinks the road is an obstacle... Crunch go the brakes... Have to remember to disable the parking sensors when doing that...

As for acc accelerating slowly, select individual mode and turn acc to sport... A lot more acceleration if you want it.

Out of interest, how do you enable the parking sensors braking thing?

Ta!
