      How many miles are too many miles which necessitate a new pump? I was sort of waiting to get through most of my warranty before doing too much. At 21k miles... I have started shopping. :)

      What menu was this in? I tried to access "56-Radio" and it kept giving me an error message.
      But I was able to access ofther menu options.

      bought in January 2012... 21k miles on it now.
      I guess ~1k/month isn't bad. It seems like a lot though. The car doesn't feel almost 2 years old.

      The TDI had taller 5th gears in generations past.
      It was a semi-popular mod for mk4 1.8T crowd. I have no idea if there are direct (easy) options availble for our gear set.

      I like the close...

      I don't think $500-600 is unreasonable for a shop.
      That said, I never considered doing this myself. I assumed I would have to use a shop.

      Where did you get replacement driveshaft bolts? Is that...

      that was a good deal!

      O'doyle, please update if you notice the same thing I did. (sounds quieter than RCD)

      I'll comment on this too, since I went from RCD 510 (??) to the RNS 315.
      Now the music seems quieter. I'm sometimes find I have the volume maxed out.

      I am wondering if this is b/c the RCD HU had...

      In addition to the GPS antenna, you'll need to code it with VCDS so that the directions show up in the MFA.

      I did this. It's an easy swap... ~30 minutes taking time so as not to break any tabs...

      Do you have pictures?
      I haven't taken the grill off before. I'm not sure how it attaches? Are the spring clips something from my oe grill that I would use to attach a new grill?

      I'm 95% sure my...

      I agree with others that the intake itself wouldn't have caused the issue.

      THIS could though. I killed 2-3 MAF sensors in my mk4 before I realized the filter was over oiled.
      Were I to get an...

      I have found this to be true. It's just hard to keep it at 60 when other cars are zipping by.
      75-80MPH gets you low 20s.

      How many VWs have you had?
      I think constant abuse in ANY car, be it subbie or VW, will cause issues. I went through 2 transmissions in my mk4. (3 if you count the oe one)

      ^^ I agree... but the good thing about getting here early is leaving by 4PM. :)

      I will try not to worry about it.
      I only asked about door sensors b/c I had to replace one in my mk4.
