      The haldex when engaged is a "straight line" system - missing a center differential. That only really works when going straight, because when you turn the four wheels take different arcs, and the...

      Yay, got my car back. They reset the long-term MFI, which means I won't be able to compare the mileage reported vs. what I calculate. Not too big a deal, I guess. The bigger bummer to me is that...

      Got a call about them not having the water pump in stock... Tomorrow (again). Wonder if they had a German water pump in stock, and then realized they couldn't use it, as budzik suggested.

      Dropped mine off for the water pump and 2yr service. Forgot to tell them not to rotate the tires, since I did it 2K miles ago. Did tell them not to wash it, and they are supposedly going to fix the...

      I drove mine to Seattle and back (from Portland) last week despite having gotten the letter. It went fine for me, but I'm bone stock, so if it blew there would be little wiggle room for VW. Now...

      Washed, clay bar, waterless wash w/ wax. Looks mighty pretty, ready for her new water pump tomorrow. I figured having it spotless would be a hint that it doesn't need a wash, as opting out isn't...

      You'd have to get the Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC) setup from a European Golf R to get this. I believe it was an option in the rest of the world, just not in North America due to price targets.

      I could see the A3 having a larger trunk, and that being useful for a stroller or whatnot. A Golf R wagon, though, would be killer. Hatch back practicality is hard to beat with a sedan.

      I think the pulley making its way through the timing belt cover would count as "noise". Not for all that long, mind you. But I agree, the symptoms seem rather vague, but I guess that's on purpose. ...

      Is your engine build date <= March 20, 2012? I believe folks with March 21 and 22nd build dates have reported that they are excluded.

      EOS plate holder, with a little Dremel action, will fit nicely, and should be able to reuse the existing holes they drilled in your bumper.
