      1) I had the same lug nut issue. I ordered from VW OEM ones, as they are stainless steel. You need to use a metric socket, I believe it is 19mm. My dealership had it all beat up from impacts and...

      1 MPG difference city/highway combined (savings) from when I did a short run of the ECON mode.

      It drops gears and puts way too much stress on the transmission.

      Also, it drops the idle RPM at...

      I no longer drive with ECON mode on - I am hoping that fixes it.

      All the rough shifts most likely did the damage to the transmission. Luckily, covered within warranty right before it was going to...

      I figured VW copied the dodge manual for service, guess not!

      I had my transmission replaced by VW and they had no idea what to do with the mopar warranty registration card:)

      VW will recommend a timing chain at 100k, probably around $500-$1000 including labor.

      Transmission can last a 250k miles or 50k miles. Most seem fine, but there are a few out there with...

      1) my gas mileage has always been on the low end of the EPA rating as well.

      2) I would suggest blank rotors unless you really want the look. You want the most surface area for braking. Slotted...

      Besides transmission, my rotors always warps so went with tireracks cyro centric solid rotor (not drilled or slotted), hawk hps front and akebono rear.

      I stopped using it.

      After 50k miles using it, the transmission failed and was changed under warranty.

      I suspect the hard shifts had something to do with it.

      very nice, I have this on my GL550 - it's great feature to have.

      I just use those $1 stick on mirrors from Auto zone on my Routan, but might add this to my mod list.
