      My B6 does the same -- heat comes out of the two side vents, driver and passenger, but not the center vents with the Climatronic (automatic) system.

      Definitely a sport suspension ride and yet I've driven other cars -- Lincoln MKZ, for example -- that not only rides more harsh than the B6 Sport but also threatens to lose composure -- actually...

      How many times, if any, have you had the valves cleaned? Just curious -- love to hear about that kind of mileage on a 3.6 :)

      I tweaked my auto wipers (and auto headlights) to be a little more sensitive via VCDS and they both seem to work better than before, so I'm kind of liking how they work these days (though the wipers...

      That was a voluntary recall on VWs part, so the Fed was not involved. And the recall expired in 2013.

      FWIW I love the Climatronic on mine -- never touch the thing, windows never fog up, seems to know exactly what to do and when to do it in any conditions.

      I drive lower miles as well and I watch the odometer, not the clock, so I waited to hit the 40k mile mark. I would say oil changes once a year or 5k miles, though, if you do less than 5k miles a...

      According to my 2008 (US) brochure, sport suspension came standard and was only available on models with the VR6 engine (the trim was also called VR6).
