      Overhead Console

      Hey guys--

      Admittedly I do not own a Golf VII. This holiday weekend I got a chance to ride around in a friend's GTI VII, and while I was pretty impressed overall by the interior styling and fit...

      Update. The dealership was SUPER AWESOME about this and replaced a lot of stuff for free.

      The fans and the fan control module were bad, and they likely went bad due to a worn spot on a wiring...

      I've seen more issues related to people who've put APR on their manuals. I've only got 16k on my '14, but so far, so good.

      So, I just dropped over $1,000 at the dealership to fix this problem. They replaced both fans and the fan control module.

      I thought for 2013 VW changed to discs for all models? And IRS for all models in 2014. Yep, even the 2.Slow gets all dolled up these days.

      Radiator Fans Work Sometimes

      Hey guys,

      I've been reading all night about radiator fans. My 03 GLI has 150k, and recently, the temp gauge has been moving up a notch or two above "normal" when I'm stopped/idling. The posts I've...
