      Back in my day, a similar set of tires, run year round, with a full season of autocrossing and maybe an hour on a track total, I would get 10k out of a set.

      I would rotate them regularly though,...

      Not a single mention of new tires? Not surprising.

      Stock golf's handle really well compared to their competition in the price point. They only require decent summer tires. So, ditch your...

      The blinking light is the door lock.

      The car has an alarm, and an immobilizer. I don't think the alarm really does anything unless a door is somehow opened after being locked (it won't go off if...

      It's not necessarily about the mileage on the tires. They were in storage for 6-8 months. They could easily have flat spots, high spots, hardened compound, be out of balance, etc. All of these...

      I've got an 11 TDI and don't plan on getting rid of it either. I just figured since there's a lot of "eco friendly" people up here, someone might be furious with VW and unable to sell it through a...

      Assuming it's a GTI or TDI, that's an ok price. If it's just a regular golf they are out of their mind.

      I've been cruising CL lately and most of the mk6 I see with low miles are in the 12-16k...

      While this thread has some views, do any of you guys know of anyone in the area that is dissatisfied with their VW TDI after the whole "scandal" that might be looking for a different car? I'm...

      So your problem happened at the exact same time that you put different wheels/tires on the car, yet you don't think it's related to exactly that?

      Come on man.

      Tell us more about your snow tires.

      Age? Tread depth? Studded or studless? etc.

      I'd be more than willing to bet that the issue you're having is directly related to your tires. ABS is all about...

      I'd argue, without any knowledge of your suspension setup, that you'd be safer doing this stock than lowered.

      The suspension geometry stock was designed for the car's actual limits. Everything...

      I do believe sustained higher RPM driving is the "accepted" way to do it. Which, for me, just means cruising on the highway in 4th for 15 minutes or so. OR, if you want to have more fun, a track...

      Have you considered the DPF being clogged? That could possibly give you the trouble you're having. Maybe see if you can find a garage to park in one night to see if it's truly temperature dependent.

      Can you describe your startup procedure?

      When it's cold, you should be turning the key to the on position, and waiting a few seconds for the glowplug light to turn off (the orange pigtail looking...

      This is the only acceptable answer. You could have 1000000hp and it wouldn't matter one bit if you couldn't put it down.

      Tires should be the first modification you ever make to a car if you want...

      I think everyone who's worried here is forgetting something that's important. The DSG is an automated manual transmission.

      Have you ever sat in a car with a manual, car off, and just rowed through...
