      The ECU has to be matched to the immobilizer in the cluster. Does have to be done with the dealer tool. They don't even see the PIN codes anymore, it connects to a server and the whole thing is done...

      It's not a triple square, but it is a twelve point bolt. You just need a twelve point socket, I think it's a 27mm but I'll double check.

      I don't think Mishi makes bad radiators, I've only seen one person claim worse *performance* than the stock rad, but I've seen several reports that the fitment for our cars is terrible. Lots of...

      I take it you will be offering the radiator for sale to the public? I'd love to ditch the stock rad just to get rid of the plastic end tanks! Heard too many iffy things about the Mishimoto to trust...

      True, I do remember that, but is there clearance underneath for the battery to drop down? I thought the layout of the components under the car still precluded this from working. May have to take a...

      The OEM rear battery box will only work on quattro/4motion models, the trunk pan is different. If you want to get creative you can fit a Deka battery under the false floor without removing the spare...

      Out of curiosity, how many miles on that timing belt? Did one of your pulleys seize? The way the teeth are all stripped in one section makes it seem like something stopped spinning freely and ruined...

      Re: 2.0T FSI Engine

      Isn't it an auto tensioner on the 2.0T? Still doesn't rule out poor installation though... Tech probably wondered where the extra bolts came from at the end of the job!

      How the hell is the work they did intact if the timing belt broke/came off?! I'd contact VWoA, and personally I would insist on having a different dealer do the rework if they take care of it for...

      It's up to the shop, just call ahead and ask. Many won't charge labor for the initial install, but may charge later if you need to get reflashed or get a free upgrade.
