      check the flex pipe in the exhausat. it can leak like you describe and does so commonly in high mileage. mine went out just before the exhaust warranty went out, at like 78,xxx mi.

      make sure you come back and let us know how that goes. seriously.
      i mean, if you can break the DSG on a stock motor, for example, i'd want to know about that and how you did it. but i'm gonna...

      i wouldn't take that bait either.

      your car is working its way out of the current gen, and finding parts in a few years when you pass 100k could be an issue... car manufacturers plan it this way....

      here's my car with the "slightly tweaked" Cupra. if you tweak it right, i think it looks awesome. the center vent lines up with the grill, so it looks right. it's a strong piece as well. mine has...

      to be clear, the DSG issue was never a recall. the DSG thing was a factory fix with a warranty extension to make sure that, if you had the issue, you'd be warrantied to 100k/10yr. the VW info you...

      get the VIN, call VWoA. problem solved. they will have recall records for the VIN.

      here's a few of my own reasons after owning the car since 07 and putting about 92k on her.

      these are good points. the main things to consider first are what you really like in a car, MT vs DSG and NA vs turbo.
