      Yeah,... maybe it's the lag-time I'm referring to. The mpg is the same. Everything else is negligible, as far as I am concerned. I realize the foreign models are all Turbos.

      It is interesting the...

      I'm not sure, but I believe with that wheel, you start by prying on the middle piece (disc) from the outer edge. Just using your hands. This assumes that piece is independent from the outer (spokes)...

      I don't know what the 2016 Tiguan I had last week had in it (was a turbo as well) but the Jetta is a 4 cyl SE. Don't know what size the engine is though other than that. Not impressed... :thumbdown::(

      Well, I've been driving a 2016 Turbo Jetta all week and am not impressed. It gets the same fuel economy around 30 mpg (real measured figures) and has no initial pick up when compared to my 2012 2.5L...

      I spoke with the VW parts guy in my neck-of-the-woods (in Maryland) and he can get the parts. They are expensive (around $700 each). I'm not interested in moving forward until I get some answers,...

      I hope they bring back the 2.5L (non-turbo). The turbos have a nice sound and initial speed, but don't compare to overall power as the 2.5L IMHO... I have been driving some turbo loaners from my VW...

      There is usually a small hole beneath the center VW emblem. Place the hook in there and pull. Be careful not to drop the cap on the hard surface or you may scratch it.

      It is a bit tricky, but when placing jack stands, I tend to raise the vehicle first with the scissor jack that came with the vehicle, as it takes up less room. Then I place the jack stand as close to...

      The issue with my brake lights turned out to be a code setting. I don't know how that changed, as that isn't something I would have turned off. :banghead:

      They look good! I'm guessing more comfortable than the OEM. Keep us posted. Perhaps you can turn off the seat airbags using a VAG COM. Having loose airbags under/near the seats sounds dangerous.

      The lowering looks pretty good for H&R springs and OEM struts. Actually, I replaced my rear spring with H&R. It's a much smoother ride than the other coil-over rear springs provided.
