      We had more damage than that done on a Chevrolet Bolt of ours - my partner grazed a pole while reversing into a parking spot. Had one of those bumper doc guys come out and fix it in our driveway. ...

      Anyone else try this yet with a US-spec Mk7 and have different results than I do? I still have the green engineering menu on mine but no BSM audible setting.

      The Mk7 and Mk7.5 are fine looking cars, perhaps the worst part is the Mk7 halogen headlamps being rather cheap looking and also looking like they were designed in 1999, but that's easily rectified...

      Might have to wait and see one in the metal but my first thoughts are "nope, and maybe my next car will be a Mazda instead".

      ^^^ So on that Mercedes, I guess it's standard practice for Dutch police (or the owner) to remove the plates from the car ASAP? Anti-plate-theft measure? In one of the earlier shots, the rear plate...

      You're welcome.

      I also did a quick ebay search and there's a guy in the Portland, OR area that has a fully rebuilt ACU motor for $7500 and a fully rebuilt AAF motor for $7000. Here is the ACU:

      Can try a factory reset on your head unit...I believe it's in the settings I've seen it. But you might lose a lot of stuff though (presets, bluetooth pairings, etc.).

      I'm going to guess (just a guess) no. Given the angle at which the T4 engine is mounted, I wouldn't count on the right holes in the right places for the oil to flow.

      Also no foglamps.

      This basically is the same car as the Mk7 2017 Wolfsburg Edition Golf except it benefits for about the same minor upgrades as the rest of the Mk7.5 lineup, such as LED tails and...

      Do we really know it's that far off? I doubt it.. With the regular Golf trimmed to just one level for MY2020, I don't see multiple MYs of Value Editions. Also the Europe-made R is supposed come back...

      Still like it, but still very much miss my 2011 buy-back TDI a little more. The Mk7 is a fantastic car and generally an upgrade if you're coming from a non-VW non-premium brand, but I still think...

      As I understand it, diesels are more efficient than gasoline engines and create far less waste heat in the combustion process. Probably the...
