Dry suspension bushes? Is that what could be causing the creaking noise at low speed?

Does anyone have any experience of aftermarket dampers on their MK7?

Does anyone have experience with the Bilstein B12 kit? Either on past cars on their Golf.

I bought the part from VW and got a local independent to fit it for me.

Just been quoted the thick end of £700 to replace both front DCC shocks  -part supplied by VW, fitted by a trusted indie :sick:

Symptoms are leakage and creaking noise on the re-bound.


If I was to buy another GTI in the future (which I probably will) I'd think twice about the DCC.

Interesting post. It would make me think hard before adding options to an already well specified car. More stuff to go wrong, and more expensive when it does.
