      My favorite is the clunk the suspension makes when backing out of a parking spot. I also have the headliner issue on the driver's side if the overhead console.

      Other than the most recent fuel EVAP...

      Now that you mention it, I went back through the TSB I posted above and noticed the N80 was not replaced as part of the recall. I canceled my ECS order until I'm sure of the part.

      N80 Valve, EVAP Purge Valve, Fuel Tank Ventilation Valve, whatever you want to call it, it's all the same part. It's a 3.2 specific part which sucks because the 1.8T version is like $15.

      Thanks for the tip about checking the fuel tank access panel. Checked both sides and didn't see any evidence of a leak. Took it for a 20 minute drive and couldn't reproduce the issue. It's raining...

      I live in NM. It's been excessively hot here this summer, 95+ daily for the past 2 months.

      Yesterday while I was driving I noticed a weird feel in the accelerator pedal. Almost like a...

      Bummer!

      I know your pain. Keep your chin up and be happy you were able to walk away.

      I wouldn't do that again. A damp rag works fine and it's easier to keep away from the ignition system.

      BTW new coilpacks and plugs are recommended every 50k, so if you're past that, consider it...

      I'm really surprised at all the haldex upgrade comments. Is it really worth it? How much different does it make the car feel?

      If the hood doesn't line up then it's been in a front end collision and it was not reported. I went through similar issues with mine. The front bumper didn't line up with a fender and when I went...

      Haven't checked this thread in a while. It's great to see the progress and that someone in the states is taking the plunge. I definitely think UM is going to be the way to go.

      It would be awesome if the UM guys added a feature for an extra display page that could be used with the MFD data selection buttons on the steering wheel.

      I would.

      The only thing I would miss is the sound but considering how much cheaper it is to make more power, I think I could get over it.

      Count me as someone who purchased one but has not installed it yet.

      Has anyone had any better luck contacting USP?

      They only stated the downpipe/cat section is stock and that the car had no tuning or cams, etc.

      They never explicitly said it was a stock catback. I'm not sure if no muffler means no catback or...

      I think we're getting to something here because the dyno results from the USP test pipe were produced with NO MUFFLER.

      See the text at the bottom of the video around the 20 second mark.

      So I'm assuming you were out of warranty and your vw mechanic friend that did the rear service to your car is not taking any blame for messing up the haldex/rear diff fluid? He must have done it as...

      Any idea how long the UM tune adaptation is supposed to take? I think that's the first question that needs to be answered.

      Also the gains showed by USP for the test pipe were on a stock car. I...
