      :sly:

      It's a Jetta.

      Do not use green or maroon coolant, use VW specified coolant (G12 or whatever the newest variation is). The correct coolant is pink.

      I've never noticed this in the cabin, but pretty much after every drive when I get out of the car I do. It's a faint smell of coolant. There are no leaks, and I've had the dealer look all around a...

      Yeah, but that's over $15 more than I paid with subscribe and save on Amazon for the PUE 5w40.

      I haven't decided on UOA yet. I've been using a Pela extractor for a couple years now do I don't have to crawl under the car, and I know using this method won't get me accurate results in a UOA.

      I'm currently running the Motul 8100 x-clean 5w40 (just changed to this last week). I used Pennzoil Ultra Euro 5w40 on the last change, but it's getting harder to find and Amazon has been out of...

      Don't forget timing belts. They were known to not last the full mileage VWoA initially said they could do. Later, it was recommended to change them at 80k. But other than that (and PCV issues) it was...

      The ECM will adjust to keep from running lean or rich, but you're not really going to gain anything with bolt-ons until you get the ECM flashed. Personally, I wouldn't spend $ on bolt-ons just yet. I...

      In seriousness, I'd clean at least the areas in question and examine, then decide from there how much work is needed. It may not be bad, but I'm willing to bet it'll at least require some light wet...

      While I don't think you'll blow your engine for doing the VW recommended 10k mile OCIs, I do change mine every 5k miles. A little peace of mind goes a long way ;)

      I've been running DEA's LED DRLs for almost a year and only had one issue with one flickering about 6 months later. I sent it back and they replaced it no questions asked. The only "problem" I have...

      They look the same on the outside, but I'm sure they have different boards to meet different lighting regulations by region. I'm sure it isn't as easy as running a wire and installing a bulb or even...

      Which shocks have you been running since installing DG springs? Why the change of heart?

      The first time my dealer changed oil in mine (10k mark), they didn't fill it all the way. I assume they used the amount that the previous 2.0T required (other 2013 models). So, it's more common than...

      As others have said, I'd not recommend Sea Foam for anything. I'm not saying it doesn't work, but I just don't think it's worth the time and effort it'll take to run through the intake for the little...

      I have had my gen3 EA888 2013 GLI for a year and a half now, engine code CPPA (the PZEV one). Oil changes are a breeze with a Pela 6000 extractor. This car takes 5.5 liters or 5.8 quarts of oil. The...
