      I had been curious about those cheap-o chrome grilles (and trying to 'brush' it myself), and now that I see it on UG I'm :banghead: for even considering it.

      Like others said, the interior does...

      I currently only have the ECU tune since I'm trying to get my DSG worked on by VW. I've found it to be quite impressive, but I still understand why some people question the pricing as it stands...

      I'm just about there too, what does the 100k service involve?

      Locking down the subframe and all new mounts are next on my list!

      I've been Fob only (no attachments) since 2006 when I was driving a MKIV, but that is certainly a possibility. Maybe a previous owner had too many pieces of flair on the key when it belonged to them....
    6. Has anybody dealt with this kind of issue before?...

      Has anybody dealt with this kind of issue before? A little research shows that VW might replace or fix the issue under warranty.

      I had rattles on cold starts and on throttle after being stopped, I could also hear a fluttering/air leak sound under throttle and more pronounced when driving next to objects (ie. jersey barriers...

      The entire assembly is one piece and the dealer's quote for replacement was very costly. Every once in a while used downpipes will come up in the classifieds section for a couple hundred bucks, if I...

      Luckily I haven't had to deal with any bizarre malfunctions, but I'm going to update my 2014 service list as I've neared 100k. I'm going to need to replace the shocks/struts in the next 10k miles but...

      Do you have the UM tune, and if so did you get a CEL when it died?

      I'm working on passing eCheck, can anyone tell me what o2 sensor would be affected by this code?

      P0161 O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 2 Sensor 2)

      Is this a post 02 sensor, and...

      I want to clarify that I'm not going to attempt to tweak anything in VCDS, I just need to clear the p0420/p0421 codes and limp the car around. Last time the CEL was off I made it ~70 miles before the...

      From my research, any MKV R32 running USP pipes with HFCs is tossing codes unless deleted through a tune. I tried the spacer route and quickly learned that it was a waste of money (42dd x2 if anyone...

      I'm looking for someone near Akron that has VCDS and can help me out or let me borrow their setup for a week or two. I'll go ahead and say that I know nothing about operating the system, but I need...

      I went with EBC Reds, OEM rotors, eventually SS lines + excessively DD capable fluid, and after a couple thousand miles of driving I can barely tell the difference vs worn components outside of the...

      I just got the car back and its finally back in shape, here is what I replaced/did in 2014. I think that I've made it through the wear+tear refresh for the mileage as I'm approaching 100k.

      I felt/heard SOMETHING the moment I drove off the lot - not sure it was test driven. I originally chocked it up to a bizarre NVH or a break in period, and then things got worse. Drove ~150 miles I...

      Confirmation is that the bearings refused to seat in the mounts, which caused binding in the spring. They swapped new OEM ones in and the problem is gone, gave me a refund for the 034 ones.
