      No idea. What year? Which passenger door? Can you open it from the inside? The inside handle should always override the electronic locking system. If you pull the inside handle twice, the back doors...

      SO much misinformation...

      2015 is nothing but a refresh. I repeat, 2015 STILL the same MkVI/Mk6 that we've seen since 2011.

      For reference, previous mid-cycle refresh years (minus tire/wheel...

      That's crazy that this varies by cluster. I always read that the GLI cars had a different wiring setup, and I guess this is proof. Solid feature though that VW should definitely advertise :thumbup:

      Not the back one... VW changed the taper of the trunk lid, so you can't get the new rear bumper unless you also get a new (plainer) rear trunk lid. IMHO, get a '12-'14 GLI rear bumper. Those look...

      I like the blue kph in the new instrument cluster... a nod to MkIV I'm sure.

      The front of the car doesn't bother me... the larger grille is MkII cool, and the new air dam is an improvement over...

      Easter Egg?

      I noticed tonight that if you leave your headlights on and lock your car with the key fob, the headlights (exterior and interior) go completely off, saving your battery. That's awesome! It's an...

      Yeah... checked the fuses. I'm going with a faulty relay then if the door switch shouldn't cause the problem.

      I'm not sure that it's the unhappiest, though. Recently they've set sales records last achieved when all VW products had flat-four rear-mounted air-cooled boxer engines. And the current Passat and...
    9. Car Wouldn't Start - Fuel Pump Disabled by Door Lock Module?

      Hey guys, I've done a little bit of searching online, but I can't seem to find verification that this was my problem or not, so I wanted to run it by everyone.

      This morning, my 24v VR6 wouldn't...

      Update...

      After messing with the car for over an hour and calling it quits to read in my Bentley manual about diagnosing fuel pump problems, I went back outside to try again. This time, when I...
    11. Car won't start. Starter turns motor, but motor does nothing.

      Hey guys, I parked my 24v VR6 a week ago and all was fine. I tried to start it today, and it won't do anything. The battery is fine. The starter turns the motor, but it's like it's out of fuel or has...

      The taller front radiator grille reminds me of MkII, and the air dam is a modest improvement over the droopy '11-'14 regular front bumper. I'm fond of what VW did up there.

      The rear of the car...

      I think that Reflex Silver actually looks phenomenal on these cars. In the right light, there's something about the way the metallic flake shines on the c-pillar's shoulder line that's just pure...

      My OEM '14 GLI clutch is super light.

      I have an '03 GLI VR6 and a '14 GLI, and the clutches are as completely opposite as they could be. Whenever I switch cars, the two GLIs are so different that...

      The only common issues are with lights... when people try to bling out their Jettas buy putting in bulbs that the cars weren't designed for, they run into headaches. Tell her to keep the bulbs stock,...

      Yeah... the GLI isn't loved as much. It doesn't sell as well as the GTI. Proof of VW's lack of concern for the GLI is that it's on hiatus until early '15. VW gave the Jetta a face lift, but they...

      My experience is that the MkVI blower puts out way more air than my old MkIV. To that end, it makes sense that it's louder. I've never questioned it. I'm just glad the fan goes faster.

      There are dozens and dozens of posts about non-stock bulbs throwing codes and causing electrical chaos. I highly suggest keeping it stock.

      I wouldn't consider a 2.Slow unless the power also went up... to at least 140hp. 115hp was scary slow in my old light-er-weight MkIV. I can't imagine what it's like driving a MkVI with that little...

      My roof makes a sound like hitting a metal clothes hanger against the body of the car every time I pull out of the driveway. Makes me think of that scene from The Love Bug where Herbie split in half.
