      Key word is it *should* have been part of the 30k service.

      There are many reports of dealers claiming it's not covered (mine included), or dealers doing the change incorrectly.

      It's cheap and...

      Gen IV Haldex can account for different wheel speeds easily so there is no need to replace all tires. So unless the Gen V Haldex got worse it shouldn't matter from a Haldex point of view on spare...

      Car companies do it only for looks. The average buyer doesn't walk into a car dealership and go "I wonder if the unsprung mass is lower or higher with those optional 19's"....they instead think "OH...

      500 isn't really small if the initial demand is similar to the MK6. It took ~2.5 months to sell 500 MK6 Rs and those had a choice of color and option group so people could get exactly what they...

      Seriously! Apparently people still haven't figured out that cars cost different in each market. But by using the conversion logic that shows up all to frequently then the standard R should start at...

      That's a good question. I also hope this time around we can get it with decent summer tires from the factory instead of a random pair of awful all-seasons.

      No surprise that the two option groups don't satisfy everyone. For me though these are slightly better then the MK6. When I bought the MK6 R the main option requirement was absolutely no sunroof....

      This is answered above. There are no LED tail lights in this style. This RV has euro headlights too so don't read too much into it.

      Sounds like a great cover letter for the petition!

      Seriously VW. Grow a pair and bring this here.

      VW, stop the teasing with these US showings. Bring us the R400 and the R wagon so I can buy both!

      Don't read too much into the EA113 vs the new motor. New doesn't always mean better. Just look at the blown turbos in the new GTI as an example. It may turn out to be an early problem like the water...

      The motor is the only component providing power assist. There are no hydraulics so if you disable the electric motor it will be completely unpowered.

      Let us know how it goes. I guess the hope would be if you unplug it there would be no thrown codes or some weird ESC "always on/limp mode", which I could see being the case. The R has a steering...

      I use those on my MK6 R for winter wheels. I don't know if there is an offset difference with the MK7, but I would think they will fit a PP car.

      I have't looked for it on the R, but typically they are attached to the steering rack, not the column. Like this picture.

      Maybe I am fooling myself but one of the reasons I bought the R is for potentially better long term reliability. I am still stock though at 40k but it's driven hard. The base of the engine design has...

      They move based on speed and steering angle. Drive slow, around 15-25mph, and turn right/left like a S-turn and you will see them move. I barely notice them taking 90-degree turns or at high speeds....
