Just a thought…..have you checked wheel bearing?
Bearing went on my son’s A3 and it cooked the ABS speed sensor on that wheel.

hi there again interested in a Gti in hertsshire its a 2010 70 reg from the photos it has the19 Adelaide wheels on but there are no arch fins on ,any ideas why there not on , also any other things to look out for ie heater matrix and water ingress issues https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202405159741677?sort=relevance&aggregatedTrim=GTI&colour=Red&colour=Grey&make=Volkswagen&model=Golf&postcode=ne23%207rs&transmission=Automatic&year-from=2020&year-to=2021&advertising-location=at_cars&fromsra

The obvious software gremlins is something to be aware of, and checking to see whether the car’s software has been updated to minimise / eliminate the many software-related issues reported on this - and other - forum(s). 

As for the absence of the wheel arch lip spoilers;
  • car might have originally had 18” alloys and the owner upgraded to 19” alloys in which case it wouldn’t have had the wheel arch lip spoilers fitted from the factory.
  • a previous owner could’ve removed them - some owners do, as they don’t like them.
If the car did originally have the 18” Richmond alloys, I’d be wanting the seller to confirm the 19” Adelaide alloys on the car are genuine VW items by providing pictures of the reverse side of the wheel’s spokes for each wheel showing the distinguishing marks forged into the back of the spokes - e.g. part no. (5H0601025R), spec details (19 x 8J ET50), manufacturer name, JWL certification mark and VW logo. CMWheels sell replica 19” Adelaide alloys at £550 for a set of four (there’ll be other sellers of replicas too), so a previous owner might have gone for the more cost effective option! The replicas won’t have the aforementioned identifying marks forged into the back of the spokes - there may be some identifying marks but they’ll be different.

Job Done, I took my time and i think did an ok job, quite fiddly, measuring up the spaces and making sure the gaps were the same, But i think imo it finishes the look off for me... One thing to note in my case the item arrived damaged , post had crushed the box was quite shocked at how the seller sent them in a tiny box folded up..

Well screen lit up like a Christmas tree, the usual auto hold, ABS, Stability Control so scanned and needs a rear left wheel speed sensor. Also noticed the rear right brake disk was very hot. Just stripped it down and lubed everything hoping to free it off but the caliper is seized so need a new one of them as well.

To top things off I have yet another coolant leak from somewhere under the alternator. The water pump housing thank god is dry as a bone. Only a slow one but annoying.

They look class. Any link to where purchased preferably in Eire?
You'll have to contact Jason of Arch Guardian. He sells direct as far as I know. The rear sets are going to be available asap too.
@Rowlers FYI the alloygators can cause white worm and scratch the finish

They are Rim Blades, stuck on with 3m VHB tape. I only put them on to hide an existing scuff. The wheels are original as far as I can tell, so they aren't doing too badly for 7 year old.
