Golf mk7 / Frozen door seals!!!
« Last post by madstaff on Today at 11:37 »
Its getting to that time of year again, back to de-frosting the car in a morning.  :sad:

I have treated the rubber seals with Gummi Pfledge but what do people use, if anything, on the felt seal around the top of the door to prevent it freezing??

The ID.3 range really does need a shot in the arm.
Plus it has the worst brakes I’ve experienced since the mk1 GTI.

I happened upon a hire company dropping off a new Caddy van last week. The Caddy has had a strange makeover it seems.
What did impress me was the Skoda EV (begins with a K and about the size of an ID.4) they were using. Both inside and outside it was leagues ahead of the ID.3, a really decent effort from Skoda. Apparently it costs about the same as an ID.3 but is bigger.
Why the hell do so many people blindly get an ID.3? Is it just because it’s a free car from their employer that has some sort of kudos because it wears a VW badge?
I bet the Skoda also had the same awful brakes though.

Golf mk8 / Re: What have you done to your mk8 today?

It’s just one of those things we all dread happening. Unfortunate that it happened to you but as you say, it could have been worse. Fingers crossed you manage to get a prompt and high quality repair.

48k is just too much money to spend on a Golf in my view. I had a hard time trying to decide what to go for after selling my CS and in the end went for a R close to 37k.  A few years ago, I would never have dreamt spending that sort of money on a car. 

The sensible option would have been an ev. Had a test drive in an ID3 but unfortunately i found it a bit dull hence another performance golf. Like a few others, I think this will be my last ice car.

Golf mk7 / Re: MK7 GTI won’t start….. can anyone HELP!

Trouble with the modern batteries is they give you very little warning before they just fail. The OEM is EFB but 100% worth upgrading to AGM and remember any new battery even exactly the same specs will need coding to the car so it charges properly.

Mine failed a few years ago and I got the one below....

« Last post by Jeevanjs on 28 November 2021, 19:36 »
Hi guys,

I’ve been on the hunt for an Edition 30 for about a month now and still haven’t found the right one. I’ve viewed a fair amount and I kinda know what to look out for but it’s been hard finding the right one. If anyone is selling one or may want to sell theirs drop me a message and we can have a chat. I’ll consider anything, You can message me on 07885433755.

Thanks
Jeevan.
