    My R is jinxed

    My vehicle is 13 months old but it already have had new front springs and struts, a new fuel pump and the latest, a new DSG gearbox - all replaced under warranty. In addition, 2 guys have driven into me albeit light damage only. It must be the worst jinxed MkV. I'm seriously thinking of...

    Bleak Christmas

    I put my car in reverse in the garage but noticed boot was not closed tight. Stepped out to close boot and the car started to roll back. Found myself quickly pinned in the diminishing space between my car, my car door and my missus' other golf - we don't park parallel in the garage...

    BackSeat Rattles... of the wrong kind

    I thought I should fix the loud backseat rattles which have been annoying me for the last 4 months. Having searched the forums, the plausible root cause was the seatbelt retainer but mine was more metal on metal and most frequent when I'm alone. Here's what I have done and it has completely...

    How do you gun it in DSG?

    Driving in D6 in DSG and you want to gun it, how do you do it? 1. Floor it in D6? 2. Left flappy paddle 3 times quickly to D3? 3. Pull back gear shift to 'S' mode, automatically kicking it back to S3? :iono:

    Electronic Tags

    I dislike too many things stuck on my windscreen. Can live with the rego sticker but hate the e-tag, national park sticker etc etc. May have already been done but for those interested, I attached the e-tag on the back of the rego sticker at top left corner of windscreen, thereby reducing one...

    Photos are quite dull as it was overcast. Doesn't do justice to VW metallic shine. Also included, a shot of the reflective B-pillar covers. Are these standard on GTIs? I quite like them. Window tint to come. Cheers Donald :thumbup:

    MkV Sound

    I’m not particularly impressed with the sound system in my wife’s normal MkV and am thinking about replacing hers and later mine. Just wondering if anyone has had a tweak with your system. Great if you could share your experience in this respect. Thanks Donald

    Apologies if this question has been asked before. The system in my wife's new V doesn't sound very special. What is the OEM for the headunit and speakers in the V Golfs and GTIs? Thanks Donald
