Did this to mine too a good few months ago. Very satisfying to actually fix a rattle 👍

Although I have to call out my neighbour for good effort. He has a debadged C63 and put a 180D badge on it to poke fun at the wannabes. The people who you want to impress know and those that don't know, probably don't care!

Cheaper insurance?  :grin:

Do the new badges count as a modification? If so, it could now be considered as a ‘modified’ car by the insurers, so they might have increased the cost of insurance! :grin:

As for the CSS spoiler, I really think the special edition stuff should stay on those models. Can look a bit daft on other versions. Suppose it’s all personal taste.

I think the CSS spoiler is pretty discreet. I hate the look of the Oettinger one that's offered as an option (or was).

Personally, don't mind mods that borrow from the look of a model like the CSS. I think where I draw the line is when people start reproducing the decals and pretending the car is something it's not.

Know what you mean. There’s a gtd on my daily commute with CS decals. Poor.

Golf mk7 / Rattle Behind Dashboard Cubby - Solved!
« Last post by Talk-torque on 23 May 2019, 22:13 »
Almost since new, in March, my car has had a rattle from the dashboard cubbyhole area, to the right of the steering wheel. I had convinced myself it was the cubby lid that was rattling, as it seemed to quieten when I held it. Until today, I hadn't done a proper investigation, but after I removed the cubby lid, (open it and squeeze the sides together, quite hard!), the actual cause became apparent. The panel in the photo sits under the dash, below the cubby, between the driver's knee airbag and the footwell light/OBD socket area. It should be secured by the T20 screw at the top of the photo (nearest to the driver) and a tongue, which slides into a clip on the bulkhead at the bottom of the photo. The person who assembled mine had missed the clip, so the panel was bouncing up and down and, err, rattling. Unscrewed it, assembled it properly and, very satisfyingly, the rattle has completely gone!

I can't believe mine is the only car this has happened to, so, if you've got an unidentified rattle in the cubby area, it might be worth taking a look.

I’m sorry youngsters but no.
Your techie ipadesque binnacles look like 1980’s Alba Argos stereos.
Analogue dials are perfect and really don’t need a fancy makeover.

Know this is a gimmick but be good to see the TCR puddle light logo when lights go down


I did a quick video for my wife which will show you the puddle light. You can download it here: https://app.box.com/s/mm2whhla5ib69kd41rwrdhsuk0lg1jjw

It's a 22.1MB .MOV file so just be warned on size if you're downloading on a mobile connection. It's set to expire on Saturday as I don't want Box hitting for bandwidth costs.

The TCR logo isn't a puddle light, it's actually a little gobo of the logo under the door. The puddle lights remain on the mirrors as before so it's not where I thought it was positioned. You still have the LED lights on the underside of the mirrors per the GTI PP etc.
