Golf mk7 / Re: GTI mk 7 under preforming
« Last post by Splashalot on Today at 02:40 »
I had a mk5GTI for 10 years and my 7.5GTI's throttle response in std form is incomparably poor.  The mk5 felt much more muscular and torquey.  With a pedal box fitted the 7.5 now has missing instant, torquey response.  Without the pedal box it feels like driving with the handbrake on and four flat tyres.  I don't know of one person who has actually used the pedal box who doesn't think it transforms the car's throttle response.

Try one.  They're a cheap and easy fix.  If you don't like it, they're easy to sell on.  I will bet money it will change your opinion of the car.

Edit:  There's a pedal box thread on here I'm too lazy to link, if you want more reassurance.

When I spoke with VW live chat yesterday they said they expect the WLTP certification to be issued in week 50......

Might wanna check again and see what they say because they told me it’s just been approved

The garage / Weird noise when start, only when it's cold.
« Last post by c_jiahao on 19 September 2018, 22:50 »
Hi everyone. We have got a 05 gti mk5. Recently when we start the car when its cold. It makes this noise and then goes away. When the car is warm, it doesn't do it. Just wondering if anyone can help here and maybe know what it could be. I attached a link of the video of starting the car. Thanks very much.

I'm just a bit paranoid now since I had to do a speed awareness course recently. So any "bong" or warning I'll take it, as annoying as it may be ;)

if it was mine I would be rolling roading it to make sure it is as it should be to put my mind at rest. At a guess Ive not heard of a mk7 diverter valve failure but what you are saying is how a mk6 feels when its dv is failing. Delay in pedal responce is worse on a 7 but they have more torque.

The Petrol particulate filter is to please the tree huggers and those clowns in Brussels.

Just had a look at the VW website - new price list is out -dated 13/9/18 - 2019 Model year models are now listed
separately to 2018 - Gti Performace is listed there as 3 & 5 door,manual & DSG but all emissions figures/prices etc are "TBA"

I don't have any issues or problems with the throttle response on my GTi pp. Has the OP checked when the car was last serviced? Some decent quality fuel would probably help too.

Yes, thanks. It is "Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure"

But how is it that a different fuel consumption test has such major consequences that are affecting the supply chain of VW Golfs?

And is the need for a particulate filter somehow associated with WLTP? Or was that fake news?

Has anyone seen this weeks Autocar mag - final report on their long term Golf Gti - near the end it says "just an auto-equipped Performance five-door remains" when talking about a slimmed down Golf range - do they have some insider info ?
