      That's a Chinese-market car so it likely has different powertrain options than the US.

      V6 would most likely be the 3.6 VR6 used in the B6 Passat, CC, NMS Passat, R36, Touareg, Cayenne, Q7, etc, so...

      Looks like they didn't change the C-pillar design after all.

      I noticed while doing a VAG-COM scan for something else that the Climatatronic auto climate control system will request an increased idle if the A/C compressor isn't getting enough juice to meet the...

      You might as well replace the front control arm bushings (front bushing and rear) as well as check the sway bar end links and bushings.

      You should be fine with a good set of all seasons, your...

      The LWB Tig has a third row of (tiny) seats, right? That would make the longer back doors make more sense, along with the differences in proportions vs. the Kodiaq.

      No, you're confusing that with the 5-speed stick FWD GSW that has slightly reduced torque. The 6-speed auto on the FWD GSW and the transmissions on the AWD/alltracks can handle more torque so the...

      I'm sure they'll fit a wagon just fine but might potentially interfere with some roof rail accessories, so they're marked as sedan only.

      I think the MKC / New Q5 comparison is just as bad. Lincoln's designers skated to where Audi's puck was going.

      Perhaps, but if you have to go into a menu to adjust a setting you'd never know is there without reading the manual then the system isn't very automatic, is it? :P

      You need to buy new housings. Note that you'll have to transfer all the electronic components over from your old ones:

      The 2-zone automatic system in my Passat works very well. A couple of things I like about it are: 1. the fact that you can take control of any individual setting (temp, fan speed, vents used, recirc,...

      The dealer will sell you a crush washer by itself and you can get the old crush washer off with some end nippers or similar but you risk damage to the plug threads. I'm just going to get a Fumoto...

      On the 3.6 VR6 FSI the G28 sensor is attached to the block behind the oil filter housing.

      Can you post your scan? Wrap it in [ code ] tags (without the spaces) to get it to format correctly.

      Have you scanned it with an actual VAG-COM? The G28 issue could be causing low idle, resulting in the low airflow code. But, the G28 error could be caused by a timing issue (bad tensioner, bad...

      This is like how the old timers taught their kids not to touch a hot stove: let them touch it once, and they'll never do it again. In your son's case, it's "take your car to the dealer and let them...

      1820? That's $2050 right now--ouch!

      Street R Performance has the Bastuck for 1379, which is $1550 currently. Of course then you have to factor in shipping.

      It's probably a better bet to fab...
