      Glad to hear there's some consistency to the inconsistency, so to speak.

      That's what I'm thinking, too. Which is equally disappointing since usually my dealer has been straight with me and not tried to pull crap like that.
    4. US Market GTI info: 4 dr only on Autobahn?

      I've been trying to keep up on all things MkVII since I'm eager to get one, so I check in with my dealer once a month or so to get the latest. What they told me this month was kinda disappointing. ...

      I read somewhere that for 2013 and on, the rain sensor is not being installed on anything but SEL trim levels. SE's and below are out of luck. That may be the problem if yours isn't an SEL.
    6. Has anyone been able to run the APR ECU tune on the new 1.8T?

      I saw on my Facebook feed that APR now has a tune for the newest version of the 1.8T in the Passat, Jetta, and soon to be Mk7 Golf. Numbers are impressive, but actual experience and workability can...

      There is, and it looks pretty awesome. On 91 octane, you're looking at 236 HP and 278 lb/ft. On 93 octane - 245 HP and 290 lb/ft

      I had this installed in my MkVI I just traded. 8" sub and enclosure (no amp) from JL. Model CP108LG-W3v3. Not a huge booming sub but added plenty of great bass for almost all music and hardly...

      Bought my Golf TDI with the all-season mats installed and the cloth ones in the back in plastic. Just traded my car so no longer need these. They've never been touched. Plain black, no embroidery....

    12. SOLD: 2011 4 dr VW Golf TDI DSG - Graphite Blue w many upgrades

      *********SOLD*************

      Looking to upgrade/expand to a larger car. I don't want to trade in because a dealer won't take into account the many upgrades I've done into the trade-in value, so...

      Ha!

      To be clear, she wants ME to trade in MY TDI so I can drive the Mini six months a year. If I'm trading in my car that I've put tons of hours and probably ten thousand dollars into, I...

      We have one of those great relationships where her money is her money and my money is our money. I bought her Subaru last fall. It's a 2013 so I would be the one taking the hit to trade in so no...
    15. Mini rant - Wife tried to talk me into one...makes the Golf seem like an Audi.

      My wife drives a Subaru Legacy for her job that keeps her driving all over every day. During the summer months, it seems like a waste when she could drive my TDI and save on gas and I take her car...

      No adverse effects to speak of except when it's happening. It goes for a few minutes then doesn't come back for a few months. When it's happening, I feel like the engine's going to sputter out or...
    17. MkVI TDI DSG: Strange intermittent vibration at idle, seems to be connected with DPF cycle

      Every so often, the idle in my TDI gets really rough at a stop. It's like there's a misfire in the cylinders or the engine is about to run out of gas and actually makes the whole car lurch a bit. ...

      With Mercedes releasing a 190 HP diesel four banger and Mazda releasing a 170 ish HP diesel four banger next year, one would think the pressure is on VW to respond with an more powerful diesel at...

      Bad idea. I've done the trek from Texas through Utah in Feb and it's a bad one. I did it on decent all-seasons and the southeast corner from New Mexico up through Moab was white knuckle. Then we...
