      The details on what the UM kit includes (or requires for hardware) isn't posted anywhere I've seen yet...but think I remember most of the adamant fuel problems being claimed by APR (yup, found the...

      Almost every experience I've had at the closest dealership service department to my house has been mediocre at best. I'm not sure what training they have to go through, but it is either not thorough...

      Back up to any of the others that might not work out! I would much rather have OE leather than pay for a rewrap that doesn't fit as nice.

      Low battery would be my guess. If you search around, all of those symptoms match how a low battery usually presents and it has been extra cold lately which makes start up a bit rougher. If you have a...

      x2 - the studs that hold those panels on aren't particularly robust, my guess is they would just rip from the floor pan if the metal sheet got messed in a bad way.

      OP, you might need to use your OE struts. I can't say how the Golf R stuff compares to the Tiguan set up, but this post makes me think that the two aren't fully interchangeable with one another even...

      Those hinges always did look a bit wimpy to me. I had my driver's door on my GTI get away from me too but it just put a bit of a dimple in the fender.

      ^this also reflects my experience, I personally rarely go off of what the MFD has because it seems to be off when I calculate with the miles by gallons in the fill. My best over a day of longer road...

      Many do, and after hours of waiting they usually come tell me that they couldn't find/reproduce the sound or that they fixed it...when they in reality did not--or made it worse :rolleyes:

      The front springs did not have any rubber placed between the bottom seat on the strut and the bearing top mount (both are metal), the rears do though. I can't think of any reason that coils in the...

      You should try checking if the sound is still present with the front in the air, or if it happens only under load. It might also be easier to see/hear where the noise is coming from that way as you...

      I know that is generally considered to be the accepted practice, but do you have any insight as to why? I mean it makes sense for the stretch bolts, but the nuts? I haven't been able to figure that...

      One of the few that absolutely must be replaced is the axle bolt...but I would recommend not pulling that anyhow for suspension work. I think the pinch bolt in the spindle is supposed to be, but like...
