      Karthoums! I too like the OEM look (and maybe some BBS ones).

      On the Canadian site, they show for 2013 Golf. There are 17" and 18". Don't know the weight of them, but they are my favourite...

      It Comes with Age

      I'm still in my MkIV, but this has been a concern of mine, before buying a new Golf. I'm 5'10" as well, but maybe a bit longer in the leg.

      I feel the pressure in the back of the thighs, more and...

      I used to read similar scaremongering in the then-new MkIV forums. My 2003 1.8T with 210,000km on it should have had its turbo explode on me about 90,000km ago.

      My service manual goes up to...
    4. But, but, it's our top priority!

      Which rather makes this story, http://www.vwvortex.com/news/volkswagen-news/american-market-top-priority-wolfsburg-says-volkswagen-america-ceo-michael-horn/ seem like total BS.

      Perhaps the...

      I'm going with out-of-touch, AND out-to-lunch. I don't need PP, but I am just generally peeved with lack of choice, and all sorts of stuff I don't need just to get the one thing I do want.

      I will...

      This, or similar generally works for me. My MkIV has been doing this intermittently since Day-1. Day-4300 is no better or worse.

      Usually after it has refused 1st, I slip the clutch just a bit,...

      Actually, this rather makes sense to me. Maybe it's an OCD thing:laugh:

      The MkIV does not have any red stripe. The red accent to me competes (or clashes) with all colours except perhaps the...

      Anyone have a feel for how the new 1.8T is against a MkIV 1.8T? I believe mine was rated for 6.9sec. to 60. After 12 years probably a bit slower now. I don't need faster than my current GTI, just as...

      How do the DG springs compare to what is on a Canadian Highline with the "Sport Suspension"?

      (Can't tell what the U.S. equiv. would be as they don't have a Configurator.)
    10. Still confused tho'

      It is called "spare tire mount" but is that because it sits inside the dish of the spare wheel, or does it sit inside the entire wheel well, thus losing the spare. In the photo on VW Canada site I...

      Move to Canada:D All our trims have stick-shift.

      I'm going 1.8T for much the same reasons as discussed above. 17" rims more suited to local roads, sport suspension (on our Highline) a little more...

      Just saw oh-vdubya's posting while I was composing mine.

      Thanks, that gives food for thought as well.

      In home audiophile (hi-fi) days (and keep in mind that my 1st new store-bought LPs were...
    14. without the Sub?

      I'm contemplating base stereo, with aftermarket improvements. BUT, I don't want to ditch my spare wheel! I'd consider higher-end speakers, and VW's(?) amp, but is it worth it if I go no sub-woofer?...

      That would be fun at a border crossing!

      You: "I swear officer, that's my personal stash".

      Officer: "I'm sorry Sir, we're just going to have to check all 4,000 for illicit images".

      Thanks for the info vdubkev. I'm using a 64GB card in older Sansa players with FAT32. They must be reformatted to FAT32 from exFAT to be seen. I am guessing that the same issue might arise with the...

      I think the idea these days is to load your CDs with 150+ mp3 tracks so you won't be swapping CDs in and out quite so much.

      I'm assuming it is a single-CD player, not a changer?

      Does the base...

      I've been waffling, Golf vs. GTI for months now. That Blue Silk might be enough for me to go Golf. Until of course, they add something to the GTI or break up the packages a bit. Then I will have to...

      Thanks. Rather disappointing that what was fairly standard in a low-level Golf in 1997 now requires in 2014 full-on Comfortline trim in Golf, or Autobahn GTI, PLUS an additional $1100 leather package...

      Yeah, slightly bizarre isn't it. You'd think these folks had never driven on sealed-beams before! Oh that's right, they haven't.

      Well let me tell you children, that when we went from sealed-beams...
