      Andy / ECS, do you guys have a rear-fog enabled car that you can check something with one of these?

      With LEDs from your competitor that I mentioned earlier, if I turn on my high beams, the rear...

      :eek:

      Started car to go to work and immediately got the beeping telling me to turn it off, so I did, and the bottle was almost empty. I have some coolant and distilled water so I mixed it up and...

      It's really amazing how much the pulleys can put noise into the body. With the DLI mounts, a little bit of belt whine goes right into the body and my car occasionally sounds S/C'd. :D

      ECSs harness thing is a garish hack. Katie is doing the right thing and running new wires to make the car Euro-spec.

      I see, you're asking whether it should go off with the key off vs key being removed. On my car it stays on until the key is pulled, with UK coding. Pretty sure US coding doesn't alter that behavior. ...

      I'm set to UK or Euro but it always does it. The screen should shut off when you pull the key, but the fan and drive will keep running for a while. This speeds startup if you drive away again soon.

      The RNS normally stays on after shutoff for a while. Locking your car should make it shut down sooner.

      The presets are not meant to be "per band," the whole point is that you can mix and match. If...

      I love you guys but why post APR stuff in the mkv r32 section when they don't make squat for this car?

      That was pretty much my reaction when my wife saw it and told me about it.

      Peach - Ladder was my thought as well, but there were cars on both sides of me, nothing with ladders. Given how far into...

      ^^ Pretty sure that any claim not from an actual accident goes under comprehensive rather than collision. It's not immediately obvious from the pictures, this is just behind the passenger door on...

      Come look at mine and make me an offer, maybe we can come to something (assuming you like the mods). I want to buy the Golf RS from Jesse, but it hinges on me getting at least some value out of all...

      Get a different car. Front heavy, FWD-biased AWD cars are not going to oversteer unless you do exceedingly stupid things to the rear end (like put less grippy tires - sure you'll be able to bring...

      Thanks, I was trying not to be a jerk, but it really chaps my ass when people throw down authoritative-looking posts and they are incorrect. Research your facts, the internet makes this pretty easy....

      Please stop speaking authoritatively about things you (apparently) don't understand.

      DSG doesn't care about wheel diameter (at least no more than any other transmission would). It's a FWD...

      Peteski is a good seller. He has a Mk6 R and attends WiTW, and he's behind the scenes at VWNavi.com too.

      One thing I'd recommend, whatever Sirius cable you use, make sure it has right-angle...

      Run the new wires, and then you can correctly code the CE like you would a European car. Same as the Euro LEDs. All of the harnesses / wire splices are dirty hacks and people should be ashamed of...

      you guys should offer a kit that includes this pan along with new/extra screws and the appropriate sized drill bit / tap to remove old screws. My factory piece has had 80% of the screws sheared off...

      Someone buy my Mk5 so I can buy this. FS post coming at some point soon, or just PM me for details. 70,000 mile Mk5 R32 with all of the boltons and OEM+ out the ass, but stock suspension.
