Golf mk7 / Re: Advice on the engine reliability + Map Updates
« Last post by Guzzle on Today at 15:22 »
if I could retrofit a MIB2 system with USB I would seriously consider it

There is a helpful contributor to the Octavia 3 section of the Briskoda forum called SashaGrace that may be able to give you some pointers on that. If you explain to her what you have and what you are trying to achieve she seems to know her stuff and will tell you what is and what isn't possible.

She has already done a list of OEM mods as long as your arm to her car https://www.briskoda.net/forums/topic/442148-sasha’s-octavia-vrs/?page=1

Lots of Octavia and Golf parts are the same or very similar under the branding, although they do sometimes go by different names.

Only issue with private finance is not everyone gets the advertised rates so Halifax saying 3% doesn't necessarily mean you'll actually get it.

Yes Halifax do a loan at 3% up to 25k which means putting 5-8k into it from my pocket

Like some on here I'm not really a fan of tartan so I went for art velour. Yes it's overpriced but it's compromise I was willing to make. Imo it really smartens up the interior. Not a fan of full leather and VWs asking price is insane.

Your tungsten looks a funny colour in your pics Jim.

That’s what I was thinking. Looks more like Limestone Grey - especially in the second picture.

Yes, think I used a pic that had an autocorrect filter applied  :rolleyes:

Here’s how it looked this morning. Although Tungsten does change in different lights and sometimes can almost look gold...

Had the monochrome Jacaranda on my previous 2 GTD’s and loved them. With the new GTI however, I fancied a change, and couldn’t afford (wanted to pay), the cost of full leather, so went for Art Velours as a middle ground, and absolutely love them, and gets quite a few comments from people travelling in the car.






Ahah, you're the guy from detailing world! :cool: I wondered if you were on here, I saw your thread on there, dropping you a PM.

Hi All, this is my first post, so go easy on me  :smiley:, I bought my Golf GTI PP (2013) in October 2017 with 56K on the clock, it was my (almost) perfect spec, Pure White, 3 Door, Pan Roof, Full Leather, Discovery Pro, DCC, Park Assist (only used a couple of times) absolutely love the car, just wish it had rear camera and dynaudio, if I could retrofit a MIB2 system with USB I would seriously consider it
To come back to the original post, I have just installed the latest 2019 (175) maps with no issues at all which is over 5 years from first registration
Thanks

Congrats on the new car. Your thoughts mirror mine with the exhaust. The 7.5 DSG is definitely louder then my previous Mk7 manual.
