I also have a 2007 MkV GTI and I believe it is equipped with auto-leveling system.

is it all the lights on the dash? ie the radio lights, ac lights, window lights on the doors? if so, then it sounds like a short and or blow fuse.
if its just the gauge cluster (speed,gas,rpms) then you can check the fuses for that as well. if it is only the speed display that is out. then that will take a whole new cluster. the lights are LEDs and are made into the board. so if not like a bulbs replacement will help that.

Well, I have my first issue with my '08 GTI.
The MPG display has gone haywire. Instead of giving me an accurate readout of the mpg's as I'm driving along, it's spitting out random numbers, then it goes blank like it's trying to reset but then it starts to spit out random numbers again.
Only 2300 miles on it.
I know this means a trip to the dealer, anyone had a similar experience?

I have to turn the light switch twice (almost always) before I can have lights on the dashboard. Is there anyone who experienced this before?

I own a 2008 GTI and there are 4 headlights, but the two on the inside do not come on in any configuration. The VW dealership is researching but does not have an answer, although they believe that these are additional lights that were a Canadian spec and a specific code needs to be input for them to work.

The headlights will come on if you have the headlights off and pull the high switch to the rear.. they are considered parking lights?? for what ever reason they serve no purpose really IMO.. ;p
