    1. Quick Questions - Locks and Monsoon

      Hey guys,

      I have a few quick questions. I'm not new to fourth generation cars by any means, but I've had a little trouble finding what I'm looking for by searching the threads. I have two...

      I've seen a DIY post... the Premium VIII unit is supposed to be able to run VW's backup camera. It may require some VAGCOM tweaking, but I've seen posts where this has been done.

      It all depends on the accident... sometime the cops will claim that you stopped too suddenly because you weren't paying attention/you were following too close. In that case, it often ends up being...

      Does anyone have paperwork on this fix? My dealership has never heard of it and wouldn't help my dad out on his '13 TDI.

      Haha this is why I ended my 10 year romance with black MkIV cars. I have Reflex Silver now--congrats to another Edition 30 owner!

      My trunk has almost never fully opened, ever since I purchased it. How level the ground is makes a difference, but it usually just barely pops. Coming from a MkIV, which didn't even pop up, I don't...

      Yeah... I hope this was sarcasm.

      Reflex Silver replaced Silver Arrow for the Jetta pretty early on. Silver Arrow was less bright... almost like it had a tinge of something else in it. Like a...

      Rare MkIV Colors

      I was trying to prove to someone that the MkIV Jetta was available in Cosmic Green at first, but then I ended up on a wild goose chase on Google Images looking for pics of other rare colors.

      I'm...

      I know this is an OLD thread, but the color is not Wheat Beige; that color didn't come out until 2004. And Mojave Beige was only available on Jetta wagons produced in Germany (or Golfs).

      Thanks to everyone for offering up their rides. The craziest thing happened... the guy who owns my old car offered to sell it back to me. He wants a TDI instead of a VR6. Looks like I'll have my old...

      I'm less concerned about their labor costs and more concerned about whether or not they'd even do it. I just got a 0% credit card for the heck of it. I have no issue putting the repair on there, but...

      Someone in the forums may have posted that, but I don't think anything official has been released though. There have been zero VWoA press releases mentioning the GLI. And in fact, the recent press...

      Backup Camera

      Has anyone ever asked the dealership if they'd install a backup camera on a car with a Premium VIII head unit? Long story short, before people yell at me to do it myself, I have a relatively new...

      Warning... not sure when/if the 2015 GLI will come out, if you're wanting to buy new. We've seen pics of the '15 Jetta refreshed that's due in show rooms any day, but no one has heard a peep or seen...

      Congrats on the car! There weren't many '14 GLIs made before VW switched over to all Edition 30 cars, so in a way, your car is a little rare (for its year, anyways). And yes, you have the new gen 3...
