      Silly MFD Abbreviations

      Anybody else notice that the MFD display says "Lft. Seat Heating" - why would they abbreviate left - dropping one character and adding a "."?

      And abbreviating right in "Rgh. Seat Heating" - even...

      Nice car - I have the same! Except mine came with all season tires - but I've already replaced them with summers.

      When you say that you "replaced both headlights" do you mean that your replaced the low beam bulb?

      I'd check to see if you are getting power to and from the fuse when it isn't working.

      Knowing which fuses blew would help in assessing what was damaged.



      Well you could buy new harnesses from VW - but that would be expensive and not practical to install. You could buy new...

      The "box, relay thing" is the Central Control Module (CCM) - it probably got fried too and will have to be replaced.

      The two 15amp fuses are for the alarm system - part of the CCM.

      It's...

      I'd start by checking your battery connections - including the ground under the battery.

      That's the question - where are you getting these bi-xenon projector "lamps" (to use your terminology)?

      Huh? Why would things be grounded to the throttle body? If everything is working what problem are you trying to solve?

      What do you mean that the "fuses seem to be OK"? Are you getting power from the turn signal fuse? Do the lights flash when you lock/unlock the car?

      It isn't clear to me what you are asking. It sounds like you are planning on replacing your low beams with a bi-xenon projector? What are you planning on using for the bi-xenon projector?

      I believe that you just need a 10-pin to 12-pin adapter cable - they are not plug and play - and they do not need a relay harness. The OEM halogen headlights have a 10-pin connector and the OEM HIDs...

      I would call the bolts from Tire Rack "matte grey" - certainly not "chrome". I see Otis Inc LA also sells "Black Zinc" bolts that look darker. What color are your BBS wheels - silver or black - any...

      Black Lug Bolts vs Bolt Covers That Fit

      My wheels came with lug bolts from Tire Rack. They are silver colored and I don't really like the looks with the "graphite" or "anthracite" paint on the wheels. The stock VW lug bolt covers do not...

      I think this is your problem. You shouldn't need to "slip" the clutch when you are upshifting. The goal is to match the engine speed to the vehicle speed when you let out the clutch. That isn't...

      i think the 2001 was a GLS and the 2003 was a GL. Look on the sticker on the floor of the trunk - it should have the trim level on it.
