Mk7 Golf / Re: New addition to the family - Golf TSI 1.4
« Last post by benpaul12 on Today at 02:04:12 pm »
Odd to hear the lane assist doesn't work.

I love the lane assist, it works probably about 90% of roads and even locks on to lanes when there is no left-side marking. It's so good, it's made me lazier, when I drive cars without it, it feels odd...

Mk7 Golf / Re: Mk7 Owners - Your cars please

^ It does now, it was all fixed by the dealer. They updated the software and gave us NZ maps too.

Yep, it's an import. The selection was an NZ one which had 18in wheels and reversing camera, or the Jap one (which was $3k cheaper) which has ACC, lane assist, euro tails, light package, bigger entertainment unit etc. much more kit.

Mk6 Golf - Jetta - Scirocco - Beetle / Cruise control not working
« Last post by coons on Today at 04:28:40 am »
Hey there. So Iíve just bought another Mk6, and this is the second one I have owned now (Iíve owned a few) where the cruise control doesnít work.

When you flick the switch on the light doesnít come on in the instrument cluster, and none of the setting buttons respond.

Iíve done a bit of googling and it seems the system can be deactivated when the battery is disconnected. This seems super odd.. has anyone experienced this? Or any other thoughts on it not working?

No, It's possible to have an MK60 with hill hold. SOME of them are capable.

  • find a compatible MK60 ABS module
  • Install 4-motion/hill-hold G251 sensor
  • Code ABS to car
  • perform basic settings/adaptations, possibly system function test

How do I identify the MK60 is capable or not?

2015 S4 wagon at Azaks cars in Auckland.  It's white but with nardo grey wrap.

I can see intake is a CTS unit, tailpipes and limited exhaust I can see look factory.  Supercharger pulley not stock, it's not black and has 4 bolts holding it on. 

Anyone know previous owner/s?  or what's been changed from factory spec?

Must have been remapped by someone with the aftermarket pulley there, just want to know exactly what's been done to it.

Haha that is brilliant. I agree the 18s are a bit too big, but I love them so much!
I'd like the same wheels in 17". There is a set of 16" 5-spokes for sale on one of the Facebook groups too.

Planning to give it to my parents but they are used to the Merc which do not have the problem of rolling back on incline and seems to have forgotten how to do handbrake hill start


using a handbrake is like riding a bicycle, cheaper and simpler just to retrain them  8)

Dutton are finding a lot of favour in melbourne, where there is definitely a premium for classics.  Good on them, but how long can the classic car bubble last?

Since 1911 when Dutton was established in Melbourne Iím guessing...

I hope those Ronals are busy getting refurbished. The car looks awesome but IMHO the 18s are just too much for the old car.
I know this is for MK1 golfs, but the analogy remains the same  8)
