Golf mk7 / Re: Moving from a TDI to a GTI - at last!

I did wonder, as it was my opinion that they were supposed to be red - I wasn’t 100% sure though. Hmm...

Maybe a silly question, but does your car have the other visual identifiers for the performance pack model? Red GTI badge on the front grille red, GTI logo on the front brake calipers, the larger front discs and vented rear discs?

You’d have thought that the members on here connected with VW would have known about a change like this??!  :rolleyes:

The recent hot spell has been playing hell with my reccaro's , they started to squeek terribly , but i found a fix just encase anyone else gets this, it was coming from the rear, where the grey plastic meets the black glossy , i unclipped the grey and added some sticky felt strips to the edge's and this totally cured it. Recarro had some felt there, but no where near enough

Turn the ignition on and off then pull the wiper stalk down and the wipers will wipe up to the service position. Also you are then able to move them around without any resistance from the wiper motor.  :smiley:

Ahhh that’s fantastic thank you!  :grin:

I will definitely be trying that for the next wash.

Detailing / Wipers while washing car

What’s the story with the windscreen wipers on the mk7.5?  You can’t lift them up while washing the car!  It’s a right old pain in the backside.  My wife has a brand new polo and hers lift as normal.

Am I missing something?  I noticed my neighbours Audi A6 is the same.  They appear to be recessed further behind the bonnet.

Hey Jon, hope it's going well over there!

No problem listing this :)

Thank you, discount code available if anyone wants them, also a code for some free tickets :)

Loving it over here, although I do miss the number of easily accessible car shows back home :( but it's nice to see the VAG scene is pretty big over here too, but getting hold of parts is a lot harder. Most performance shops are in the US and than you get hit with customs charges.

You still have the rallye?
