      You would have no problem pushing another 40+WHP without needing to worry about engine failures. Why even upgrade to the BNR to make barely more than factory power? It is your car and your choice,...

      Wait, you're running a BNR and making under 300WHP? Either ECU-tek sucks, your tuner sucks, or you have ****ty gas. That turbo/your setup should be making 350+WHP. Many break 400WHP with that turbo....

      My GTI seats are killing me. I can't get them into a position where I'm comfortable to save my life. I'm hoping that they will "break-in" after some more miles, but it sucks right now. :thumbdown:

      Realistically, how much faster can they get? It's traction from a dead stop that is going to limit most cars.

      We've seen multiple cars have clutches replaced under warranty. The dual mass flywheel causes the issue in most cases. It wouldn't surprise me if you legitimately had a "defective" component in your...

      To this day, we still have yet to replace any failed turbos on MK7 GTIs. I'm still waiting for the first one to show up. We did have a leaking HPFP, but that's all I've seen so far.

      90% of the warranty work we do is done without ever contacting VWOA. Some cases require tech line assistance and very rarely, some cases require a VWOA field technician/engineer to be sent out. We do...

      The truth is that any service advisor/dealership who sees a TD1 flag on the warranty info page is going deny coverage for anything engine/drivetrain related. The reason being that Volkswagen is going...

      The turn signal issue wasn't causing fires, it was for a false bulb out indicator and was only a body control module update. The battery management software update simply made it so that no control...

      I haven't seen a TSB or anything related to this, but it's always possible. VW would normally release a TSB for a software update like this though.

      Try continuing to hold the button instead of releasing it. I vaguely remember it popping up before releasing the button. I'll try it on one at work tomorrow.

      Turn the key on, engine off and hold the "0.0" button on your instrument cluster until a message pops up on the MFI asking if you want to reset it.

      A leaking rear main seal could cause the slipping as well. Increased boost pressure can cause higher crankcase pressure if the PCV setup cannot handle the increased flow from blow by gasses. Could be...

      The main issue would be the plastic oil pan. It's probably much easier to break than a metal pan.

      It sounds like it is based on the European market MKVII, as they mention the rotary slide water pump, variable exhaust lift, etc. We don't have all of those features over here.
