      Here's a link to a post I made describing the process in the Phaeton forum. Perhaps the same concepts might work with the Golf 7.

      Hi TJ:

      I'm a little bit surprised that the dealership is advertising the car at that price. Unlike the USA market, VW Canada will come down on the dealers like a ton of bricks if a dealership...

      Hi Jessica:

      Based on my aviation experience, I can think of three possible causes for your problem - one is highly improbable, considering where you are presently located; next one is possible, ...

      It makes sense to me: Both of those lights are 'running lights' or 'marker lights' - they serve the same purpose, which is to define the outer perimeter of the vehicle. So, from the point of view of...

      The difference is that you have posted a picture of the parts catalog page that describes the repair wires themselves, and the parts catalog picture that I posted is the repair catalog page...

      Hi Derek:

      That is fascinating, I have never heard of that process before. Do you mean that a liquid coating of some kind is applied to the car, rather than a 'wrap' consisting of adhesive film? ...

      It's just plain old black vinyl electrical tape, the kind of stuff you get at Home Depot for 99 cents a roll. Klebestreifen is just the German word for adhesive tape, I thought I would jazz up an...

      Hi Dave:

      I don't have the owner manual for my Golf handy, otherwise, I'd post a scan of the break-in instructions for you.

      I read the book earlier this week (when I picked up the car), and if I...

      Yes, that's correct. But if you ask your parts specialist to print out the page from the parts catalog that lists a replacement connector (the connector on the car wiring harness that plugs into the...

      TJ:

      I just noticed now that you are in Guelph, which is not too far from me (I'm near 407 and 404 in Toronto).

      If you plan to visit my end of town, send me a PM ahead of time. I have dozens of...

      Hi Derek:

      What do you mean when you say "dipped"? I'm not familiar with that term.

      TJ:

      The gold-plated repair wires are only needed for use on the airbag system, and then only on certain very small and delicate connectors, such as within the steering wheel assembly. For normal...

      Hi Don:

      I do agree with you, sometimes the low-tech path is the best way to go.

      Speaking of tape, I figured out a way to eliminate a major annoyance (to me) today, that being the amber...

      No, it is not a manufacturing defect. VW has actually thought the whole process out very carefully.

      You are correct. I picked up my 2015 Golf Highline last week, and it was equipped with an auto-dimming interior rear view mirror. It works very well.

      If my dealer had had a TDI on the lot in the colours I wanted, with the options I wanted (fully loaded), I would have bought it, even though I only drive about 1,000 miles a year.

      Any kind of dirt on the antenna would, for sure, severely impair satellite reception. The satellites transmit at relatively low power (there's no-where up there to plug the things...

      That is normal behaviour of the KESSY when the car has been locked (while running) using the key fob. My 2004 Phaeton behaves the same way. If you lock it with the key fob while the engine is...
