      Assuming from a later post that you want to order within Canada. I have a 15 Golf Highline with 17" standard and went with a 16" Sima Winter from the VW Accessories catalogue:...

      I don't have the car in question, but I've been using OEM for about 30 years and never any issues.

      Discrete (no logos), does the job, not the rust-catcher folks think they are. And, none have...

      You're probably thinking too hard about it. Mine is a Dec/14 Build Golf 1.8T. I have had the Recall done to my car.

      The problem was (as we understand it) a bad batch of cams. The original solution...

      My 2015 Golf manual has all the other information, except the above line.

      Wish I knew what "a longer period of time" meant. 3 days? 3 weeks? Phase of moon?

      I'll assume that it applies to mine,...

      Hmm, I don't have an "electronics manual" as such, but in my "Owners Manual, Golf, 2015, Canadian Edition", pages 45-7; I can find the relevant section, but there is no comment I can see about...

      There's always a wiseguy who actually reads the manual:D

      Can you give a subject heading for that Jersey. In my Golf manual page 56 is "pinch protection for windows", and I cannot for the life of...

      I get this quite a bit. Takes longer than a couple of days for me, usually. My car sits for a week unused quite regularly, and a couple of weeks is not uncommon. Always works from driver's side.

      If you are going to compare a subject car from before recall update to a subject car after recall update, then you are going to have to bring in a 3rd car not-subject-to-recall, one produced after...
    9. I did not say I was getting better mpg. What I...

      I did not say I was getting better mpg. What I said was my 1st tank, of highway, no city driving, no traffic was better than what I would normally see. I did not obsessively record mileage after...
    10. Sorry guys, but I am not seeing any of these...

      Sorry guys, but I am not seeing any of these issues. If anything, mileage on my 1st tank was better, but that was all highway, no traffic. Butt-meter says that the power is the same.

      I can't speak...

      I would say go ahead and do the drive. I had almost 20,000Km on mine before getting it done, and I drive mine quite enthusiastically sometimes. (I'm assuming your figures are Km). Although, like you...
    12. If you are above average weight, or in my case,...

      If you are above average weight, or in my case, above average age, I don't think it can be done.

      You don't say what car, or seats, but I have a TSI Highline (CDN) with sport seats. so reasonably...

      I spend a lot of time lurking in this forum, and I'd say a majority, but by no means almost all are GTI-related. The up-side is that there is a fair bit of overlap in issues, so a lot of it is still...

      I yanked my switch with the intention of using the Light-Dims from behind. I've used a couple of small circular ones on the outside, one layer, just over the 2 LEDs and that dimmed the light...

      Obviously, I did not read that far in the manual :)

      All I can say is, my MkIV GTI did not have any issues after +12 years and +200,000km. It would sometimes have a snit finding reverse but that...

      I've been driving manual for 50 years, and I've rested my right hand on the stick all of those years (ready to do a shift obviously ;) ), and I have never had an issue with any car. Even the crap...

      They might not have been 3 weeks ago, but somebody is this week. Like you, I did get an initial warning in December, but I have never received the 2nd now-there-is-a-fix-available letter.

      I...
    20. Getting back On Topic

      If there are any other Canucks out there, I just had mine done. I have not received the 2nd, actual, Recall Letter from VW, but my VIN did recently appear on the VWoC Recall page. Called my dealer,...
