      Bad experience with Safelite too -- installed wipers wrong, windshield not fully sealed (leaked), replaced with another windshield and the guy got black glue on both A pillar trims. Never again.

      Totally normal (except for that barking sound :))

      The lifters cause the rough sound, and your tensioners aren't making any noise in the vid. The routine is for the tensioners to make a racket...

      It's a German thing (Mercedes, BMW too). Meant for comfort and not looking idiotic during hard stops, like I felt in recently rented Hyundai. Germans have their pride, sheesh. :beer:

      I'd say VW in general is more prevalent in the Northeast. And maybe on the left coast as well. But living in New England you'd think VW had much more than a 3% market share. Same with Subaru...

      Correct tire pressure for a particular car is indicated by sticker near the driver door jamb.

      The tire itself will indicate max pressure for the tire -- mostly likely totally wrong for the car. ...

      Sounds too draconian to me -- it's an election year. Notwithstanding executive orders the Republican congress will not pass anything like the bill proposed above.

      From what I can gather over the years the MY2008+ VR6 is one of the least troubled VW engines out there. My 2008 has misfired during cold starts maybe 3 times. No CEL, but I brought it to the...

      I don't know. Maybe the gateway in your 2009 is too old for the 315 versus the 510. Maybe a Google search will return better results.

      Maybe you need to look at how your CANBUS is coded:

      01044 - Control Module Incorrectly Coded
      000 - -
      Freeze Frame:
      Fault Status: 01100000
      Fault Priority: 1
      Fault Frequency: 3
      Reset...

      You need to enter 37 Navigation and enter long coding and tick off the box with CAN-BAP Protocol. If you don't have that option when in long coding then I'm not sure what your issue is.

      Not sure if this is the case but when I swapped out my older RNS510 for the latest model I think I had the same issue, only the fix was in reverse. I used VCDS to check the coding and noticed that...

      Exactly - Some people don't get that or know that. It's why I only use it in stop and go traffic when everyone's at a dead stop (and stopped for a decent amount of time). Then, you have to be real...

      HID headlight housings are theft-protected by the bumper, so it would have to be removed to replace the D1S bulbs. Another method I've heard about is turning the wheel, removing the fender liner,...
