      My car has had weird clutch noise since day one. My dealership and the regional rep said it was normal, not to worry.

      People make impulse decisions and regret it later down the road, or can't afford it, or a bunch of other things. I don't dislike the car, I just wish I had spent the extra money up front on the...

      Cool, just the clips that hold it in place I'm assuming? I'll probably pick one of these up just because I'm on the highway so much..

      Cool, I'm interested to see how it turns out. I just think none of the R's in NA got this part, and find it quite odd VW left it off all of them. I looked at my coil earlier and it looks like someone...

      You lucked out.

      VW must have too many R engines sitting around in a warehouse somewhere. I bet if this happened 2 years ago with an aftermarket HPFP they'd of told you to kick rocks.

      Timing belt can end up getting shredded to pieces when the gear comes off the shaft causing the housing to come apart. I guess that's worst case scenario though.

      If there are this many problems made public I can't imagine how many things they are sitting on. Hopefully they can get the right people in the right places to make this go away.
