      The best bang for the buck on performance is a Stage 1 tune from a reputable tuner like APR, Unitronic, Revo, or the like. Problem with this, as you mention, is that if VW hooks you up to their...

      Are you talking about the switch you flip with your finger to open/close the window or is there a switch within the door panel.

      What is involved in swapping out the switch?
