Golf mk7 / Re: GTI Performance or Cupra
« Last post by NewbieGTIP on Today at 16:13 »
Picking up a 68 plate Copra* next week for £23k with just over 1000 miles on clock (nicely run in for me!).

The only thing I'll miss is adaptive cruise as the Leon doesn't have it

*The Cupras are on their run out, so to speak, now that the MK4 Leon is imminent. The Seat 'S' badges have all changed to a sort of copper colour inside and out, so the Cupra enthusiasts have christened it the Copra.

Least you know it will be quicker and more fun round a track than an R....  :grin:

I’m surprised by that! Thought the 4motion would of given it the edge.

Gave my Clubsport a snow foam and wash. Not the best job I’ve ever done but after washing my dads and wife’s I was done in.

Looks good! If you select Hotlinks for forums instead of thumbnails we won't need a magnified glass to see the pics  :grin:

Hmmmmm..... I thought everyone would like a challenge but if you insist  :drool:

Golf mk7 maintenance + info / Re: Nextbase 512g Dash Cam
« Last post by Spud122 on Today at 15:01 »
I'm about to fit a dash cam in mine (2016)
I'm going to use one of the Piggy-back fuse adaptors, in the fuse box behind the glove box.
No need to cut or splice any wires its just a plug in.

Plenty on ebay for a couple of quid.
But you must make sure its wires the correct way round (not going through the original fuse)
Issue will be finding a fuse with a permanent live feed, from what i understand lots of feeds stay up for a while and then shut down a short while after the car has been locked.

Golf mk7 / Re: Michelin PS4S discount code
« Last post by Exonian on Today at 13:34 »
Does the Michelin cashback work with Blackcircles alongside their 10% off (and Quidco/TCB) has anyone found?
The Michelin T&C’s state only listed dealers are eligable and my eyes are too knackered to trawl through the list!
(Week of night shift and bugger all sleep isn’t great for eye health  :grin: )

Golf mk7 / Re: Moving from manual to automatic
« Last post by Jim_mk7.5 on Today at 13:34 »
Sometimes on daily morning work commute I just stick to D and let it do it’s thing, but other times I’ll use Sport or S manual for a more engaging drive.

Does your commute offer opportunities for an engaging drive, or are you just changing gear manually for the sake of it?



Poorly worded on my part.  No, my daily commute straight from home to work (office) doesn’t offer opportunities for an engaging drive, it’s usually congested city traffic, so that’s done in D, sometimes using S at roundabouts and other bits. Depends on how heave the traffic is. Where I live it’s never quite the same any one morning or day!  But little point in driving in manual through congested city traffic.  What I meant was other daily work trips often do allow for an engaging drive, I use the car quite a lot for work and that takes me to various places, and I often drive to sites from home, some of places those are on routes where manual is the more rewarding drive.

Sounds exactly how I use mine  :smiley:
