Golf mk7 / Re: Brake fluid change
« Last post by Finglonga on Today at 10:02 »
Nothing but a money maker for dealers the 2 year rubbish. The fluid will be ok for 5 or more years if you do not track the car and boil the hell out of it. You can tell when it needs changing as the brake feeling starts going spongy. It will not make the brakes fail suddenly like some usually say. Mine wont be changed until it is needed, I have had cars in the past that have never had a brake fluid change.

A very good friend and ex main dealer (multiple brands) mechanic for 20 years, always says it should be changed every 2 years no matter what, as it is down to atmospherics and the fact brake fluid works hard in the car and that theres a high probability it can take on moisture and thus deteriorating it's effectiveness.

Golf mk7 / Brake fluid change

I’ve always changed brake fluid every 2 yrs on my previous gti’s, but the service department doesn’t seem to think that’s the case with my Mk7. Anyone able to clarify please?

Golf mk7 / Re: Anyone find ACC brakes very late?

In the car setttings, parking and manoeuvring, enable manoeuvre braking.

Mine's a Mk7.5, I can't remember if the 7 did it...

Golf mk7 / Re: Switching off keyless entry when washing the car?

I’d recommend enabling the alarm chirp on lock with VCDS for that reason. It wouldn’t have chirped in that instance, much more noticeable than the double flashing indicators I think.

I left my key in my jacket pocket and then dumped it in the boot and closed the boot lid on Tuesday when leaving work. It didn't lock and flashed the indicators a few times. Glad it didn't lock as I was late picking my daughter up from school.

Golf mk7 / Re: Still got no idea which tyres?!?

Why does everyone bad mouth these Bridgestone!? I've driven on way worse!!!

Why.... Because they are crap! They were crap back in 2011. They came 8th of out 10 in a tyre test on the GTI in 2011

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/tyre-guides/36695/tyre-test-2011

They would be fine for an SE model but not the GTI. I'm dreading the temperature dropping as they are already struggling for traction unless you drive like Miss Daisy.
So are you saying you'd drive the same in every road condition if you had a "better" tyre? You drive to the road conditions in front of you so if that means take your time or 'drive like miss daisy" then that's what you do.
