      ** Update ** Car is out of warranty, but VW did cover part of the repair - I presume the part itself. Ended up costing nearly $400 at the dealership, but that's about what I'd pay aftermarket anyway....

      I had exactly the same experience... what a HORRIBLE design. I can BUILD a freaking car, and could barely change the headlight bulb. Crazy! I just paid VW to recheck it because the LF headlight...

      This is like VW headlights/taillights burning out constantly... Known problem for decades. I've had ~30 cars, and every one of my VW's and all 4 of my Audi's have had the headliner come out, but none...

      easy way to check is to go online to a parts store and look for the parts - if they say for instance that the shock fits both MV5 and MK6 years you are good... Otherwise, maybe, maybe not.

      Guys, do some googling..... a low pressure shock will not rebound. A high pressure monotube (gas charged) shock will rebound slowly. Look up monotube vs. twin tube shocks. You can't test them with...

      Hmm fishy. First issue I see is that the wheels are in fact 18x8 and you say you have 225/40/18 tires mounted onto them and in the picture you linked that tires sidewall looks stretched or am I just...

      Thanks Andy; your folks took care of me ok, but you picture doesn't match the actual condition of the wheels I purchased. I see your website is now fixed - thanks. What it said when I bought them a...

      Incorrect. ECS stated this combo fits, not me and it was wrong - that's why I went to a VeeDub vendor and didn't try to figure out on my own. They were nice about it and gave me a little credit...
    9. Annoyed! ECS wheels state they fit without mods, but they rub :(

      I have a Fahrenheit 07' which has 18x7.5 wheels. Got ECS tuning wheels which are 18x8 and 35mm offset. they are supposed to fit (Stock sized 225/40-18 tires), but rub over bumps. Grr. Car is...
