Golf mk7 / Re: Are trim panels removed for the 142 point check

Sounds very unlikely. I'd want to know exactly what the problem was before going further. Could be anything.

Is it at a VW dealership?

Golf mk7 / Are trim panels removed for the 142 point check
« Last post by Pretzel on Today at 16:33 »
I had an appointment to view a GTi this morning which was cancelled at short notice because the car had the interior panels removed to check the wiring. I've had a quick look at the 142 point checklist and don't really see any need to remove trim panels.

My only thought is that there has been some aftermarket modification to the car or possibly a Tracker.

Any ideas?

Ah the joy of the beautiful Parkers, so easy to clean.

Have a nice calibrated dB tool.

I have notice that this tires are much louder than my previous GY Assymetric 3.

I will now compare the dB on the same road under the same conditions on my vintertires and my Semi slicks.

Wich tire is the most silent  do you think?!  :grin:

Possibly not in the spirit of the thread but they look like they'll be a right pita to keep clean. If you like the Parkers I'd go for those.

Surely that’s the downfall of Santiagos?

The Santiagos are tricky but you get used to it. The Sevilles though appear to have lots of grooves and to be very fiddly, I think it would become tedious keeping them clean.

Hope the 10 day quote means its actually in UK (boat arrived at Grimsby last night) - but it just hasn't updated to In the UK..... Ordered last week of August so will be very happy if it really is next 10 days.

Great stuff Jeni, I'm sure you'll enjoy it, wouldn't want to drive mine without now and you don't have to drive like an idiot to get the benefit! Might be too late now but I would recommend starting low and building up as it takes a while for the right foot to compensate :laugh:
