      Finally fixed

      Finally got the whole head unit replaced last night at the dealership. In and out in under 30 minutes, and it works great! Pissed that it took 6 months of listening to terrible sound through...

      2013s don't have Climatronic. It's gone fully manual. Perhaps it's exclusive to Climatronic (and therefore the SEL now), because mine is very cold until the engine is warm. Thankfully, the Germans...

      Diesel engines take 2-3 times as long to warm up, so the TDI will definitely take a while to start blowing warm air. I had forgotten about that from my last TDI, which I sold 4 years ago before...

      I haven't found a setting to do away with it. It's definitely trying to be "smart" about it. The stereo does the same thing (auto-pause) if you turn the volume down all the way too.

      What I don't...

      Literally every car with remote entry made in the last 10 years has this feature. I had a '92 Camry that did this, and every car I've owned since then has done the same. It's a good safety feature in...

      New radio head unit

      My dealership has been solving the issue by replacing the head units with brand new ones. I expressed concern that the issue may still exist. We'll see what happens next week when it gets swapped. At...

      Agreed. Deep baritone resonant honk that is plenty loud. I love the horn, and it's more manly than my 2010 Jetta. The worst I ever had was when I drove my dad's base '91 Isuzu pickup in college for a...

      I'm so frustrated with VWoA. They have had this as a known issue for over 12 months (since the thing went on sale last year), and every stereo other than the RCD510 works just fine. I'm a software...

      I had mine installed at my dealer for $260, painted and installed. $225 is a good deal for the part, but you still have to install it. Rather than dealing with the glue and any clean up that an...

      Awesome! Totally agree with their analysis, and exactly why I continue to buy VWs instead of hte "mainstream" brands. :thumbup:

      I drove both the 2.5 and the TDI (both in manual transmission, the offering of which is one of the reasons I continue to buy VWs), and while I felt the 2.5 was adequate and priced lower (especially...

      Thanks. I wasn't quite sure if that was my issue or not (I saw that thread, but it's hard to make it through all 11 pages) because I do hear things out of all 4 speakers. I'll be sure to report it to...

      I have been thinking about trying the SD card thing since the SE doesn't have a USB plug-in for my old iPod, but it sounds like a disaster.

      Finally snapped a couple of pics now that the fog light kit and spoiler were installed. I get lots of looks in this car, especially with the German plate on the front. It was an eBay find when I got...

      I'd do Titanium with Cornsilk. This is my second car with the Cornsilk V-Tex interior, and it's amazing. Had my last one for three years with no signs of wear, compared to the beige leather in my '06...

      Dealer ploy

      Stick with whatever the manufacturer recommends...always. It's just a dealer ploy to get you to think you should do it every 5k so that when 15k hits and it's not covered under the routine...

      It's in the glove compartment, but in a separate cubby hole above the part where you'll cram all your crap. It's a little shelf made just for the manual. VW has for the past 7-8 years made this a...

      I'm taking my SE in to get these installed next week. The cornering feature does NOT work with the retrofit, because you would apparently have to replace the BCM (I think that's it). Anyway, the...
