    If you change to show the current fuel consumption in the active info display it says “coasting” when coasting.

    So I have a 2017 R Wolfsburg and about a month ago I would get sporadic error messages come up... Error Cornering Light AFS... I have taken a video and pictures and provided them to VW... VW blames the system error to my Armytrix Exhaust stating the Bluetooth dongle plugged into my Can Bus was corrupting the system and giving false readings.. on the same day as there diagnostics I removed the entire system and nothing is plugged into the Can Bus.. two weeks later again the error flashes....
    Booked into VW again and again they want a diagnostics fee 😞 my question is on the MK7.5 how on earth do you get to the globes or is the entire system a closed unit? Plenty of videos for the MK7 but I can’t find anything for the 7.5...... very strange.. oh and at start up the lights do there normal dance.....

    If its still under warranty they can't request that. Change you dealer and never go back to the old one for neither servicing or new car purchasing.

    Hey all, I introed myself in the newbies thread,

    Need a hand. I'm about to place a deposit on a fully optioned 7.5 Golf R and need it in September when we return to Sydney. Question is, am I better ordering through a dealer right now and paying a small deposit to get one off the boats in six months; or should I wait till September and there should be plenty of stock around? What are your thoughts?

    If I order from brand new should I get a better price? Is a six month lead enough to get a car built and sent over or am I pushing it? Would dealers have a view on what is ordered in next six months / cancels being built still etc?

    Any advice on the level of discounts you can currently get on a 7.5 R, I got 12% last time when I ordered (After a lot of help from you guys) so keen to see if I can roll something like that again....

    Finally we'll be in Pittwater, but I am happy to order through Botany or anywhere else within Sydney if anyone can recommend a killer dealer they have worked with.

    Cheers for your help and Mods, please do move this if it is in completely the wrong topic name

    Not sure if production of Golf 7.5 is still ongoing, I think you will find that Wolfsburg has geared up production of the Golf 8 now.
    You are better speaking to a dealer to see what the go is.

    @langs_sydney - paid $55.5k for a fully optioned 01/20 compliance plated R last month (i.e. sunroof & Dynaudio) - not sure of the exact % discount but the deal included 3-years pre-paid service package.

    In the R 7.5 the air to the engine filter goes into the box, up thru the filter and out to the big pipe, then to the turbo.The filter sits on a louvred tray. If you lift the tray out you can see an opening down in a corner. If the pipe to the turbo is off and you stick your fingers in the opening, you can see them out the other side and it appears that unfiltered air would be able to enter the pipe that way (gasp & gulp).
    Can anyone explain the arrangement please?
