    1. Help from those who have had their engine replaced after a water pump failure

      My apologies for the bad assumptions. There are a couple of members who have had their engines replaced (due to bad water pumps). You can identify them with a search, and I would PM them directly. ...

      What Did You Do To Your Golf R Today?

      This is the biggest misunderstanding of warranty law I see on the Interwebs. The dealer doesn't have to do a damn thing until you take them (and VW) to court. Only then does the burden of proof come...

    4. Help from those who have had their engine replaced after a water pump failure

      If the tech didn't fill with any engine oil, they wouldn't have been able to drive it out of the engine bay to the pick up area of the dealership without it being clear there was something wrong. ...

      I agree with this to an extent. It was not true of the MK6, which I thought blew away the Mk5 aesthetically as soon as I saw pictures of it.

      I've seen some photographs of the Mk7 that make it...

      Trims not determined from those log blocks. Trims are a separate block, as seen in some of the pictures posted in this thread.

      I agree with the bolded text completely, and my shop did something similar. When I was referring to not resurfacing, I meant not turning, like with brake rotors.

      That's the one. Definitely the right part number, and it will fit on the R. I wish I had done this when I did everything else, but it probably doesn't make a real noticeable...

      I chose not to replace the DMF, and I had a few thousand more miles at the time than you do now. I have had no issues. I would not attempt to resurface the DMF.

      As far as which clutch setup to...

      What's the part no. on that metal bracket (in case someone else wants to give it a try)?

      The threading sounds good at first (no one wants to drop things down into their subframe), but really...

      Just do some research to make sure the fitment is good. I don't know about the Verdict MS bushings, but I can say that both sets of FFE bushings I've helped others install required the holes in the...

      New owner of 2012 Golf R
