Golf mk7 / Re: What do you find annoying about your Mark 7?

Shame there isn’t a option in vcds/obdeleven to make the stop start have a memory, or swap it to the other way round like in some Audi’s, Ive not turned it off personally due to the fact I sometimes use it

the start /stopping of the engine when you stop at a junction or traffic light does my nut in.

There should be a switch to over-ride the Stop/Start system.  You just need to remember to press it every time you start the car. 

Look for the switch with an "A" and a circular arrow.

Or get one of these https://www.kufatec.co.uk/shop/en/diagnostic-tools/kufatec-diagnostic-coding-dongle/volkswagen-audi/coding-interface-disable-start-stop

I take it you have DSG? It seems DSG owners complain for some reason. On a manual car, its not a problem.

Detailing / Re: Mitt for wheel washing
« Last post by Booth11 on 11 December 2017, 21:33 »
Thanks for the replies.  Please excuse my lack of knowledge but the wowo one I found is microfibre, would that have a deep enough pile to be able to cope with cleaning a dirty wheel and not scratch it, this would be against the standard gloss black spokes.

Yes, the microfibre is perfect for wheel cleaning, just make sure you rinse well as you would with a mitt for the bodywork.  I’ve used WoWo Wheel mitts for years in both gloss,black wheels and silver and no scratching.

General discussion / Re: Isaac blue or indium grey??

Neither, go for Tungsten it's better than both  :whistle:

LOL.

I spent ages unable to decide between Isaac and Indium, but now actually prefer Tungsten to both.  :smiley:

As has been said Isaac is quite similar to Blue Graphite from the Mk5. I like it but it's a little bit dark for me. Every man and his dog with a Mk7.5 near me either has Pure White or Indium Grey. I can't explain why, but Indium has lost a little bit of its appeal to me lately.

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

Went out in this evening to the office and driving along at 20mph in what can only be described as a JOKE to council and a muppet in a VW transporter pulled out in front of me.

Luckily I was able to stop but I let him know my feelings by blowing the horn to which he got very agitated and with seriously good dexterity was able to not only shout while letting his window down but was also able to give several different hand gestures.

Unfortunately the one thing he forgot to do was straighten his steering wheel and while hanging out his window still shouting and by this stage foaming at the mouth he drove straight into the car behind me.

I got out with my crutch in hand(I've a broken leg) to see him running at me while doing his best attempt of bamby on ice so I stuck my crutch out and knocked him down. At this point I realised that the car he drove into was an unmarked cop car.

Moral of the story, if your going to drive like a tw@t don't get angry when it's your fault and be an even bigger tw@t. He broke his arm and was drink driving.

Anyone after a very nice looking albeit slightly dented 16 plate top of the range VW transporter I think there should be one coming on the market soon as he is a sole trader(and a tw@t)

That is brilliant. He’s going to feel like a right tit once he sobers up. He’ll get a criminal record too, ouch!
