This common situation can be easily avoided when filling with new coolant On the B7. Unscrew the expansion tank from its mount, unclip the level sensor and raise the tank as high as you can whilst slowly filling.
This method ensures the highest point on the system is the expansion tank. I...

I transferred the seat belt holders from my stock s-line seats as they are wired on b7 but not on B6. I also transferred the seat pad sensor from the passenger seat.
