Look at Cobb tuning for performance modifications, if your tight on money a stage 1 tune is plenty for most and it's honestly how the car should've came in the first place. It costs about 675 for a access port and an air filter. Cobb's biggest competitor is APR which is slightly pricier with a bit more, but the accessport is really unbeatable because you can flash your ECU yourself and do everything yourself. Couple aesthetics i would consider is something like the Mk7 side wings

I also got these from amazon

Makes entering the car feel a little bit better. This is my advice to you if you want to spend 1k or less. honestly the cobb accessport is a godsend and everyone should have one lol

Since it's turning you into a car guy...If you have the space, or even if you can borrow the space from a friend, DIY your general maintenance. It's so easy on this car.

You can do a 15-20 minute oil change without getting under the car by getting a fluid extractor like this one:

Maintenance schedule is here:

Approved Oils are here (but just use Mobil1 0w-40, its fine and cheap):

Filter part numbers are here:

Lots of other great info/people on golfmk7 too.

Diluted Simple Green is a good all purpose cleaner you can use. Aerospace 303 Protectant can't be beat for all the plastic surfaces and dash. Use only microfibers.

You will probably want to get Gummi Pflege to lubricate your door seals. You will want to clean them with simple green or the like BEFORE you rub the Gummi on them so that you are removing the dirt and not causing the applicator of the Gummi to get gross.

For your tint, with the small triangle windows by the mirrors, if the shop you go to wants to charge you extra, put vinyl on the outside of them or remove trim to tint them, walk away, they aren't good enough. None of those things are necessary. Expect to pay $250-600 depending on the tint and the area you live in.

Here's all the stuff I use :)

u/sfjerry415 · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

Eyelids are from Amazon
Tail lights from here, but you can get from multiple sites. I have the Helix ones but they also sell the Ed reps. They are pretty much the same. It's the same vendor.

Nice yah I like the Mudflaps plus it helps keep the sides clean.

A Saris Bones is an OK trunk rack. That's as good as a trunk rack gets. It can rub on your paint, and I don't like the way it holds the bikes by the top tube.

In general, trunk racks are garbage though. If you're going to use it regularly, do yourself a favor and invest in a towing receiver and proper hitch mounted rack. You can get a Curt hitch with free shipping from Amazon for around $130. I installed it myself with one friend and a socket wrench. It's super no-brainer 100% easy. Then get a wheels-on hitch rack like a Kuat Transfer or something similar. They contact the bike only on the tires/wheels and don't touch the frame at all. The bikes don't sway, the wheels don't turn. The rack doesn't contact your paint at all, and can be tipped out of the way so that the hatch can open even with 2 bikes loaded.


But if you're rarely going to move bikes around, the Saris Bones is fine. Roof racks are a pain in the ass.

u/aMiracleAtJordanHare · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Do you have the "Monster Mats"?

Seat handle inserts are a really nice touch to the interior, but idk why these are $30. Pretty sure I paid like $12 4 or 5 years ago.

Enjoy your new GTI!

u/genetic_bloom · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

Yep, that's exactly it. Get a 32oz bottle of it and just dilute it at 1:16 with distilled water. You can use it to clean the wheel, as well as the other interior parts. It works great on the faux carbon fiber because other interior cleaners with UV protectants leave streaks that are hard to get off the shiny plastic. The ONR works great, you can use it to quickly wipe off the outside of your car too.

u/LongBoiTatum · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

Not OP but they look like the ones I recently ordered from AliExpress -

Edit: it looks like these are also available on Amazon. They may be a few bucks more but I wish I ordered them from Amazon instead of waiting weeks if not more for them to arrive from China.

u/slyboy889 · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Have you ever tried rinse-less carwash? I live in an apartment complex without a car washing bay and it has saved my life. Super easy to use and all you need is a bucket of water and a good amount of microfiber towels!

u/JudaiMustang · 3 pointsr/GolfGTI

I have this one coming in today. Heard good things about it. Will let you know how it turns out, but it's the only one I saw on amazon that got good reviews, and I had Amazon credit to burn.

u/memyselfandhai · 3 pointsr/GolfGTI

I love Larry's videos from AMMO NYC & DRIVE Clean and have always followed his recommendations for detailing/washing.

u/SamSzmith · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

Also, ODB11 has some good mods, but if you want something really cheap, you can get Carista for $20 and do a bunch of changes like the windows down / up on keyfob, turn off soundaktor, change asr behavior, etc. Keep in mind, Carista app costs money, but you get a free 30 days and the mods stick once you apply them.

u/Izviral · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Those are the ones I have, they look fantastic. Perfect fit and high quality materials

u/El_Chupacabra- · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Use zip ties and this license plate bracket.


It'll look like this. Super clean and you won't see the zip ties.

u/Navec · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

Get an oil extractor, way cleaner and easier. This one is nice and has caps so you can put it in your car when full without making a mess. The oil filter is on top too, so you don't have to worry about getting under the car and messing with that plug.

u/cs_cabrone · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

My 6 has so much creek. So what I did was...

1/4th inch drip tube in the inner seal atop my doors

That worked for a bit but the squeaky noises returned.

Next I used Gummi Pflege on the inside of every single seal within the door. So what I mean is. On the ones that attach to the body, but more importantly I spread open every one on the door and put a generous coating


I put Sailkote all over a rag, I mean soaked it, then rubbed it all over the felt side of the upper door seal that touches the body.

This can be purchased for a lot less with some hunting. I paid 12.99 at a local marina store

u/singsing718 · 14 pointsr/GolfGTI

I think it’s a pretty affordable way to maintain your car. I use the Optimum ONR - No Rinse Wash
And some basic supplies

  • Wash mit
  • microfiber towels for drying
  • 2 buckets of water (one for the solution the other to rinse out the mit)

    I can provide a full list of anyone interested.

    Tons of videos online to help you along.
u/megustareddito · 1 pointr/GolfGTI
  1. I'd try this brush with some Nextzett Cockpit Premium
  2. Like Beast said, Badgeskins sells a sticker to cover that.
  3. For the steering wheel, I'd recommend Lexol. I also use that to clean my leather seats, followed by their leather conditioner every now and then.
u/AspektUSA · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Nothing wrong quality wise with Denso, but the NGK laser platinums are OEM. I would not bother with anything else. Aren't plugs 60k mi for 2.0s?

The gap is .032 , about $10 on amazon for the correct ones.

Replace coils with the Audi r8 ones if you're having issues, other wise just leave it.

u/marcogopro · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I also second with getting mosnter mats and interior LEDs, huge difference

Other mods I have for the list are:
•Illuminated shift knob - color matched to interior red lighting and dims with the dimmer switch (not sure if you have stick or DSG but have a spare for sale)
•Double Apex USB Charger - OEM + look to fill dummy ports, very easy install
•GTI seat inserts ($30 off amazon)
•Toe-Hook License frame mount (if you're in a state that requires a front plate)

u/GonzoMadness · 4 pointsr/GolfGTI

I've got them too! Perfect fit for the Mk6 for under $10:

u/B0Pstar · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Its great! It was cool because the dealer asked me if I wanted them to drill into the bumper or not. I said no thanks and picked up this

u/Ftpini · 3 pointsr/GolfGTI

I bought this one and its perfect. I can't recommend it enough. It has the added benefit of being able to simple reinstall the tow hook cover should my state come to their senses and ditch the requirement.

u/efficientglove · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI


Recommended to me and I like it. Smells nice (not over powering) is not glossy and can be used on treated leather (your steering wheel).

u/robiwisc · 5 pointsr/GolfGTI

I installed the CURT 11412 hitch on my MK7 and MK7.5. It was pretty easy to install, only about 30 minutes and a few bolts.

Class 1 Trailer Hitch with Ball Mount, 1-1/4-Inch Receiver Black 1-1/4" for for Select Volkswagen Golf, GTI

u/business_casual01 · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Hitches are the way to go! Im currently using the Curt 11412 hitch on my '19 gti. I had a curt hitch on my veloster and it served me well. Amazon will state this will not fit on the '19 gti's but i confirmed on curt's site that i will in fact fit. Installed without any issues!


u/bkdlays · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I went with this one.
Some are plastic which is nice to be able to see as you fill. In the end I decided metal might be stronger and longer lasting.

u/KiDX77 · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

The following is cheap and adds a nice touch. You could probably find it cheaper btw, I just linked the first one I found. I got mine for like $6 shipped.

u/Jimbogiant · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Here are the seat pump handle inserts:

I got these a couple weeks ago and I'm impressed with the very OEM look and fit.

I don't have the door sill inserts like OP, but that may change soon, they look sharp! Here's a link to what I assume OP has installed:

u/CrunchyBones · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I use Sonax on my wheels and clean the calipers with a soft brush like this.

u/Kylesfishin · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Look into something like this. Lots of different brands/types. So easy and no reason to crawl under the car since the oil filter is on top.

u/ZodiacRumble · 3 pointsr/GolfGTI

I used this:

1/4" 3M Vinyl Striping 150' 25 Colors Available (Tomato Red)

Although the red shade is a bit lighter than the red GTI strip.

I've seen some people recommend this one as well in the mk7owners forum:

Trimbrite T1218 Trim Stripe Red 1/4 Tape

u/cheez6001 · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

If it's in the stock location there will definitely be holes. Some people opt for plugs to fill the holes. They don't look too bad but still slightly visible.

I've got my front plate mounted to the side. I just bought a cheap license plate bracket and zip-tied it to the bumper. The plate covers the ties so it's easily removable and doesn't hurt the bumper.

u/Knollex · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

Either this or one of the “Quiet” ones. Other people with GTIs have used this one with good results.

u/SqrBrewer · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

You can get it at Amazon or your choice of online sites.

Simply clean all seals with a damp microfiber cloth, wet the applicator and moisten the seals. Do your doors, hatch and hood seals too, especially if you are in a winter zone.

u/TsundereBolt · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

Do yourself a favor and get one of these cabin filters. I had some smell issues with my Mk7.5 and this got rid of them completely. Could hardly believe the difference it made.

u/jakubmalina · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Hey thanks man!

Here’s the link for the eyelids:

And as for what I’m lowered on, I just have the APR Rolls Control springs installed.

u/nestid · 4 pointsr/GolfGTI

Took me less than 5 minutes to switch out myself. I recommend this Mann-Filter FP 26 009 FreciousPlus Cabin Air Filter

u/Califorlondon · 3 pointsr/GolfGTI

etopmia Black Headlights Eyebrow Eyelids Trim fit VW MK7 Golf 7 (I dipped them to make them matte)

u/Snaisa6 · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Thanks. The mount is from Amazon, the Platypus Tow Hook mount. Bought it at $79, it's now $93. Pricey but one time purchase.

DSG Steering Wheel Shift Paddles Shifters Replacement Kit RED For VW Volkswagen Golf MK7 GTI R R-line Scirocco 2014-2019

u/Sinetan · 6 pointsr/GolfGTI

I removed both muffler and resonator like OP, but I switched the stock resonator for a Vibrant 1792 bottle type. It's loud without any rasp and gets some nice pops and loud DSG shifts with absolutely no drone. I kept the stock tips and it cost me around $250 total for parts and labor.

u/anuhn · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Yep, except I bought this

I have this pressure washer

u/bentspog · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

Could it possibly be the brand of pin striping as well?

Here is what I used Incase it differs:

Trimbrite T1218 Trim Stripe Red 1/4 Tape

u/learntosell · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I recommend gummifledge for this issue. I tried silicone spray first and that worked for a while, but this gummifledge stuff made the creaking go away for six months at a time. Pop up your moonroof and apply it to the rubber piece in the back and wherever else you think there may be rubbing, but that long back rubber weather seal was the culprit.


u/snwebb88 · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

i can see the zip-ties -_-

not trying to rain on your parade though, i picked up one of these from amazon and they also sell them at advance auto parts and that way the zip ties are hidden behind the license plate.

u/Tenchiro · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

$17 Amazon special.

I noticed this one is lifting a bit on the inside, I may need to redo them.

u/Backstop · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

These coils and these plugs are the ones I used after reading a bunch on the VWVortex and Mark6GTI messageboards. You may also want to get your intake cleaned (before you change the plugs) if you haven't already.

I just ordered one of these and will just zip tie it to the grill.

u/albearrr · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

I've read this should help with the creaking issue.

I have the same creaking issue but I have yet to attempt a fix on it.

u/TheStuffle · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

My doors and sunroof squeak every few months. This fixes it for a while.

u/myWorkAccount3000 · 3 pointsr/GolfGTI

I use the liquid pre-mixed formula (Amazon Link). You can find this at most stores that sell cleaning supplies too. I put a small amount on a sponge and then just rinse it off after.

u/Anton-LaVey · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I have the CravenSpeed Platypus, it sits flush on my bumper (I added a strip of weatherseal to the back to disallow chafing). Goodluck, /u/porktube

u/tuck3r53 · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

You can always use something like this. Which is probably what I would do if I had to have a front plate.

u/BrianXburma · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

Not too hard with some “bleeding” wheel cleaner. Just spray it on, let it sit, agitate a little if it’s been a while, and spray it off.

My favorite mod is my paint-matched rear badge inlay. No more shitty black bleached plastic on the rear badge:

Also, these seat lever inlays should have been installed at the factory. There's even an indention for them:

u/pgh_duddy · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I was using THIS before I decided to get one for the pressure washer. It works pretty decent, but it's nowhere near as good as one that hooks to a pressure washer.
