    1. Just ordered my new 2 Dr GTI w Perf Pack

      ETA January or February.

      Got an SE DSG in Pure White and lighting package.

      The wife sometimes needs to drive it, so 6M is out. I was tempted by Eds aftermarket lights to get four LED halos...

      My main time I want to use that type of function is in dusk lighting where I don't need full headlights, but I want the increased visibility to other drivers. I would use this in parking garages,...

      Supposedly, Q1 2015 we'll see the new TDI Sportwagen with FWD. Not so sure about AWD other than that VWofA has said they know the snow belt wants it.

      Hopefully, someone more audacious and skilled than I am will figure out a way to wire up the CECM to do this. I was able to with my MkVI using the euro switch and some light VCDS work, so hopefully...

      Come to think of it, it sounds nearly exactly like the engine in my 2010 Audi A4 which has similar numbers for HP and TQ. It also behaves very similarly with response and pull, but overall better...

      Yeah, I noticed that the lights came on but it was also fairly overcast at the moment so I was hoping that it was a function of the AUTO setting and not a default lights on. That also does not jive...

      First Test Drive Impressions for GTI

      I was able to test drive a 4 Dr Autobahn DSG GTI this morning so I wanted to share some driving impressions and other tidbits. Most of you know the big stuff, but I tend to niggle about the small...

      2015 Passat - what changes to expect?

      Since the 2012 model release, there have been some minor changes to packaging and equipment (adding rear AC vents, taking away rain sensor from all but SEL models), but with the new interior...

      Oh lamentable, lamentable day.

      The death of the 2-door is sad for me. As a tall guy, I appreciate the extra ingress/egress room the 2-door provides and the spot to put my elbow that the 4-door...

      So Edmunds is corroborating the story that the Autobahn version is 4-dr only.

      Glad to hear there's some consistency to the inconsistency, so to speak.

      That's what I'm thinking, too. Which is equally disappointing since usually my dealer has been straight with me and not tried to pull crap like that.
    13. US Market GTI info: 4 dr only on Autobahn?

      I've been trying to keep up on all things MkVII since I'm eager to get one, so I check in with my dealer once a month or so to get the latest. What they told me this month was kinda disappointing. ...

      I read somewhere that for 2013 and on, the rain sensor is not being installed on anything but SEL trim levels. SE's and below are out of luck. That may be the problem if yours isn't an SEL.
    15. Has anyone been able to run the APR ECU tune on the new 1.8T?

      I saw on my Facebook feed that APR now has a tune for the newest version of the 1.8T in the Passat, Jetta, and soon to be Mk7 Golf. Numbers are impressive, but actual experience and workability can...

      There is, and it looks pretty awesome. On 91 octane, you're looking at 236 HP and 278 lb/ft. On 93 octane - 245 HP and 290 lb/ft

      I had this installed in my MkVI I just traded. 8" sub and enclosure (no amp) from JL. Model CP108LG-W3v3. Not a huge booming sub but added plenty of great bass for almost all music and hardly...
