theres a Batt Control Module on the negative side of the batt terminal as well as one sandwich at the dashboard.

 

That maybe the culprit if the voltage is not constant. 

not too sure if the voltage is not constant.  my club members have recommended a secondary grounding, but will void warranty as it add /changes the stock grounding cable with 2 cables.  hence the voltage is more consistent. but then again, their cars don't exhibit any issues like mine.

 

ruled out fly wheel, as it is not rotational in nature, the MU changed, clutch pack is new.  nothing much to do liao..

 

buying another VW, sure, only torque converter ones.  no more DSG......


every day wont be the same after you make a wrong decision.

The wet clutched version is reasonable good.

 

BUT there are cases of MU failure on wet clutched on 2014 version as well. 

 

My last wet clutched went till 300,000KM without a problem and was subsequently scrap.

 

Maintenance done every 50000KM as prescribe by outside workshop.

Finally VW comes out with a good solution to the DSG issue:

A wet clutch DSG. For those that still insists that VW has solved the previous issues of dry clutch DSGs, VW has finally abandoned the problem child and opt for a wet clutch instead:

Furthermore, Audi Virtual Cockpit seems to be in all new cars now, including the new Mitsubishi Grand Lancer in China?

reviving this thread, been a long time since I updated this thread....

 

 

suspension replacement needed. rear is gone and the front are following suit.. car is now 124K KM, GB is still crappy.. engine is fine, I think the water pump is begining to show signs of slack, rumbling. 

 

all these aside...the car is functioning ok.  brings me point A to B.  wont be able to change anther car due to other commitments, and frankly, this price bracket, cannot find another car the same alr.

Bilsteins or Sachs would be more suitable for your Golf.

 

I was on Sachs which is reputed for their transmissions and shock absorbers.
