Golf mk6 / Strange smoke!
« Last post by Moore6Ti on 16 August 2017, 19:17 »
So. I have my MK6 GTI 2 months now. 88k miles. Driving home the other day and I noticed a puff of blue smoke as I take off. Never happened again. Same happened today in the same place on the drive home from work. Always as I'm coming down the gears and stop and then take off but only after the 30 minute drive ! Tail pipes have a bit of black stuff on them and when I sit and rev it small amount of whiteish smoke does come out I'm told. Any idea what is causing this ? No oil leaks or anything yet just a bit of residue around the oil cap filler and that gasket but is this normal? Car is running perfect....quite annoying. Hopeing it's nothing serious !

A good way for VW to spy on you...  :whistle:

Exactly, the AA are also trying to get people to have one and many will not realising how much information they are farming from you. I will pass thanks.

Golf mk4 / Show & Shine vs Drag
« Last post by jack2202 on 16 August 2017, 18:12 »
Hi folks, can you help me as I have a bit of a dilemma!  Purchased a good condition Golf MK4 gti turbo (mapped to 220/225 bhp) as a project car. I plan on taking it apart and then rebuilding, but not sure which avenue to follow! Do I do the full resto and join the ranks of the 'show and shine' or go down the more power route an join the 'drag' set.

Don't BMW have this crap installed in their vehicles anyway? Apparently its so you can be told about servicing.... yeah right.

If you are VW's legal department then you assume that every customer is a moron... and probably apart from all of us F1 world championship winning drivers on this forum, everyone else probably is ;-) From their lawyer perspective, its cheaper for VW to prevent mid corner lift off spins by engineering.

PS I only got rid of my messed up ones because the noise was driving me mad :)

PPS I am the world's second best driver. My skill is so great that my modesty allows me to assume that possibly somewhere in the world there is one better driver. That's how good I am :-P
