  1. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hello everyone! I have a Golf GTE mk 7.5 with 17" Seville wheels and want to upgrade to 18" ones as I'd seen them on a GTD and made the car look a lot nicer, I've attached a photo of the GTD. I want to make my GTE look like that but ain't sure if the back end will be the same as it seems my...
  2. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi, I recently (2 months ago) bought a one year old Golf MK8 GTE. It still has factory warranty. Only 6000 kms driven when I bought. When I bought it, it was giving me around 53 kms in EV only mode when turned off AC and heating. Which according to some owners I have spoken is quite good...

    Hi Everyone! First time posting. Does anyone have experience with a underseat subwoofer in a Golf GTE or in general as I'm thinking of getting one and want to know if it's worth it and would it be easy to install into the standard head unit? Thanks in advance
  4. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi there. I'm considering buying a Golf VII GTE from 2017. I found 2 pontential cars. But one of them do not have the 'battery hold' mode in the mode menu, the other do. (See picture) There is only 8 months between them. Is the mode hidden somewhere else, or did they make models without? If...

  6. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi all. Looking for a bit of advice on a issues I’ve discovered with my rear tyres. I had Michelin pilot sport 4s put on all 4 wheels about a year ago. Only done ~5k since fitting. I noticed a general rumble not long after but given the mileage on the car (currently 75k) I thought it’s probably...
  7. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi I just want to share the story that happened to me yesterday, maybe it will be useful for somebody. I been having GTE for 6 months now, we bought it second hand in Sweden and imported to Denmark. Pretty decent car I must admit, however it is packed with surprises from the producer. That's...
  8. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi all, I’m a little ashamed to say I’m quite late to the PHEV / EV party and looking to hopefully pick your brains and tap into your experience to what I could expect from a Golf GTE, given what I could afford and my commute? I’m looking at a Mk7.5 Advance for under 22k and my commute is 38...

  9. Volkswagen Passat GTE
    Hi, I have owned my passat gte for about 6 months now. I live in Finland and winters can be really cold here. One thing I noticed was engine oil running pretty cold while driving. During summertime my engine oil is about 80-105C°, but when it gets colder (minus C°) my engine oil pretty much...
  10. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi all, Had my GTE just coming up to 4 years now. Couldn't have made a better decision, really happy with the car. Lately (last sort of 6 months or so), I've been having issues with the charging flap - it doesn't open first time when you push to open. The car is unlocked and I have to try...

The code is linked with turbocharger boost system performance however I have changed the sensor on the intake but I'm unable to locate the boost pressure sensor? Has anyone else had this issue? I can cancel the code with the...

  14. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hello. I’ve had my GTE about 2 weeks now and as the weather is getting colder I decided to try the pre heat function in the e manager. It’s my understanding that it preheats the car to desired temp whilst it’s on charge to save the battery, is this correct? I leave for work at 7:15. Set my...
  15. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi all 👋🏽 I recently had VW inspect a hybrid system error and replace a fuse (€140 bill for a €3 part… thanks VW) anyways I noticed they also added this sticker to the AC charger. No mention of it in the report but as the car was only in for a service a few months ago I figured if it was part...

    Hi EV community! My drive modes on my Passat GTE has stopped working... well sort of anyway. I'm stuck on E-mode and can't select any other driving modes... the light illuminates only on the E-mode and stays on that. When I charge my car, the car drives in electric mode however, and does not...
