    Who came up with this shit? I checked my exhaust over the weekend because it sounded like it was blowing on cold start only. Goes away when I apply even the tiniest bit of throttle and goes away after a 10ish seconds. While I was down there I checked for the vacuum valve mod. Sure enough it was...

    Remember the 80's and the 'hot hatches'. I wrecked my XR3i and missed out on getting the Golf. Anyway, I left my 520d in for its 2nd service (3 years) and spied a heavily discounted 320d M Sport Touring (£8k off) with sport auto and free m Sport plus package (19" wheels, sport brakes, sun...

    Hi, I'm looking to buy a Golf MK6 and wondered if anyone knew of a good forum to advice/help on this sort of thing? I've found a few VW forums but wondered if there was a personal recommendation from anyone on here? I'm a big fan of this forum!!! Cheers

    Four years after Mike mapped the wife's last Golf Gti (Mk5), I have had her latest Mk6 Golf mapped. :thumbsup Third car done by Mike now, another great transformation. More power for sure, but for me, more importantly the extra torque which has made it a fantastic cruiser and overtaker. The...

    I finally did the egr golf tee mod on my 330d after seeing the state of my egr valve on inspection. Been running with the egr closed now for about 1000 miles and things Ive noticed are, car taking slighty longer to warm up and maybe a slight better pick up, but in my head I reckon. Car does...
