      How are you confirming that the coil packs are failing? Are you getting misfire codes, moving the coils from cylinder to cylinder to see if the misfire follows the coil?
      I only ask because if it's...

      Gotcha.

      Are you being quoted $1400 for APR? That's nuts if you are. Last I checked they were around $500 for a tune.

      I've always been a proponent of APR. I've been running their software for a long time with no real issues.
      When they have sales you can get multiple programs for the price of 1; so to address your...

      I have not.

      I've been running the P3 gauge in my '07 GTI with no issues for about 6 months now. I did notice that the plug is occasionally a bit stubborn to seat well (noticed when I...

      I have not been able to isolate the cause any further. I replaced the plugs and coils again (got a great deal so I figured "why not?") and that did not make any difference.

      I had light smoke under most conditions, and very heavy smoke under hard acceleration especially after idling or low speed driving.

      Check the valve cover.
      The valve cover is hollow and if the baffles inside it become broken or cracked it can cause oil to move into the intake manifold.
      I had this problem and was losing 1qt...

      I think you are off base with your characterization of the GTI as a "special" car in this regard. This is not a Ferrari that Maranello will not let you own unless you can prove previous ownership....

      I'm not aware of any design modification/update history on the VC. But that doesn't mean there hasn't been some.
