      Don't forget the GTI list servers as well... :)
    2. The problem with the current join date for users...

      The problem with the current join date for users that have been here long enough is that one of the forum crashes forced us to make everyone's join date start at 02-16-1999 or thereabouts. I actually...
    3. The newest version of the brake-biased slip is...

      The newest version of the brake-biased slip is far less intrusive and applies much less often at much smaller increments than previously. That said, yes the proper limited slip should be quicker,...

      Not really. Inside wheel spin isn't very common in this Golf R. Plus adding a diff to the front and rear in addition to the AWD system would add more weight, more complexity and more cost for...

      Well if Randy Pobst set the lap times, I think those still hold water however you feel about Motor Trend. :D
    6. None of the people you are referring to have...

      None of the people you are referring to have matching IP addresses to any of our mods. Unless they are going to annoying lengths to try and use a different IP address just to troll (and even then...

      Amazing that in this day and age, there is NO video at all of this happening?

      New MQB based CC may be moving up between B and C class to more firmly position it above Passat.
    10. I like Johnny, don't get me wrong, but that...

      I like Johnny, don't get me wrong, but that article is kind of bizarre with the ups and downs. Glorious Scirocco? It is the old platform FWD and not even as good as the current GTI. Maybe he forgot...
    11. Johnny, johnny, johnny... The only journalist...

      Johnny, johnny, johnny... The only journalist that seems to think the GTI has torque steer. :D Not to mention he makes the GTI sound awful when it was their car of the year. Nice consistency......
    12. I didn't see a 0-60 time mentioned in the video?...

      I didn't see a 0-60 time mentioned in the video? :confused:
    13. What way? VW breaks down Golf and GTI separately.

      What way? VW breaks down Golf and GTI separately.

      Just so we are clear on this, VW isn't officially involved in this whole Passat thing. Tanner is doing it himself.

      Yeah, yeah I see all the hyped up news about it. :D

      I still don't think Apple will build cars. Maybe something related to cars or battery technology, but outright building a factory and jumping...

      There will be a facelift of the Golf 7 in 2016 but otherwise MQB is just getting started.
    17. My guess is if you remove the plastic trim on...

      My guess is if you remove the plastic trim on either side of the hinge you'll probably find that it has been pinned in place. Someone will figure this one out.

      In the end I just want you guys to be happy. I work with VW on a lot of projects and if I can share some insight into why and how some of these things happen, at least a little perspective helps....
    19. That wasn't targeted at you. I think it is good...

      That wasn't targeted at you. I think it is good to let them know how you feel about it as it all gets logged. I can tell you that VW does listen and tries to make things happen. I do think that if...

      Apple is NOT getting into the car manufacturing business. They have been hiring automotive related employees for battery technology and expansion of their car interface group. The mini vans that are...
