Golf mk7 / Re: Best Independent for work on MK7 CSS
« Last post by AGB on 20 May 2024, 23:05 »

Thanks all for replies, I've booked in at Quattro Tech in Cambridge. Harry who managed the booking was on the ball and gave a great deal of reassurance by how he managed the booking. I shall report back but for once in my dealings with a VW dealership, I have a sense of hope and optimism.  :grin:

As an act of consideration for those who value service and competence, I'd avoid Vindis Cambridge (official VW) like the plague. I wouldn't trust them to not screw up service on a menu with a single item on it. My wife took her car in for a minor service and it started well with them sending her to the sales, not service centre which left her stranded. She didn't take a loan car as she planned against the transport links next to the sales centre which were great. They also managed to disconnect the dashcam in the car at the fuse board, failed to inform us of their policy, didn't reinstate the cam and then maintained they'd disconnected it on the camera via USB. If my wife had relied on footage from that camera for any reason, the headache...

Sending a car into a VW dealership now is an exercise in legislating for every dimension of incompetence. The last time I took my car into a dealership for an MOT and tyre change, they failed the car on the MOT. Yep, apparently I needed two new tyres. Take a bow Glen at VW Bury St Edmunds.

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.
Would you have contact email as don’t do Facebook and can’t find him anywhere else?

Took the car on a long drive

Started out with a clean car and crossed to France then into Belgium, ended up filthy by the time I got to the Eifel region Germany, but its grey so you'd never know :)

Then back to Calais and through the Tunnel to the UK for a dull drive on poor, congested roads with multiple speed camera's Yay. :)

thanks ,could you also tell me if the infortaint screen is the only size they do or is there a bigger one as on the mk 7 cheers

All one size for UK GTI's (the biggest size).

The only other thing I'd say... on a 70 plate this is one of the very first Mk8's... they had a lot of software/electronic hardware problems.

Whether any of the fixes have been done to this one is probably impossible to say unless you can get a copy of the service record.

I'd be really cautious in buying one.... if it was a 71 plate onwards its probably better - a lot of the components were improved over time.

Mine is one of the early cars too btw.... on a 21 plate, but largely the same.

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.

Yep, recently checked them as I have rumbling as usual it was tyre noise as they wear.
