      The Eos was purchased for my wife.
      In 2006 she had seen a Toyota Solara convertible and really wanted one.
      I was researching/shopping on line for a Solara when a pop up showed on my screen about...

      Can't say for certain with the roof switch question.
      I learned quickly that there is a slight pause after the roof finishes opening/closing before the widows start to roll up, so I always either...

      There was a TSB issued with respect to the clutch temp sensor and transmission RPM input sensor.

      One of the reported conditions was the transmission going into false neutral, which could cause the...

      Interesting.
      Back in the early days, most of us cursed at trying to get krytox smears off the paint work until we discovered Windex worked pretty good.

      First post of this nature I've seen, and unfortunately I can't provide much insight, other than the EOS has a ton of sensors monitored by the on board computers. If you have "tapped" into the wiring,...

      We have an 07 and zero issues thus far. I must point out, ours is a "summer toy", has low mileage, and always garaged when not being driven, but so far no complaints.

      The EOS isn't actually a...

      The slight delay is normal, it is the reaction time for the clutch to engage.

      Early on, in 2007 MY this was discussed at length. One owner found out through his dealership after considerable...

      Hi falkin42,

      Sorry for the delayed reply, and welcome to the forum.

      I can't really help you with your inquiry, I have never made any changes to the stereo on the Eos.

      Hopefully other...

      The obvious answer to why it is one of VW's most expensive cars is the retractable hard top.

      Compare it to similarly equipped cars in the 200-250 HP range, with retractable hard tops, like the...

      I do believe, if memory serves, that the clutch on the dsg has a sensor linked to the brake lights that prevents the clutch from fully engaging until the brake lights go out.

      This is what causes...

      Sorry cant help with the interpretation of the code, but a trip to the dealership is obviously in order.

      They can explain the code to you. The roof and it's mechanisms are extremely complex,...

      My experience is the same. Streaking goes away after a week or so.

      Windex seems to work as well as anything for removing krytox.
