      I believe the part number you want is 5M0827505E9B9


      I just went through a replacement on my 2012 JSW. I'm pretty sure the hatch is identical between the 2008 and 2012 sportwagen.

      More updates after the car sat overnight. I can hear the turbo on start up again. I guess it wasn't there immediately after the oil change was due to oil already in the turbo. But after it settles...

      some updates:

      first oil change since going turbo, roughly 4500 miles. About 5.5 qts of oil came out. There are no visible shavings/moisture/other reason for concern. The oil is slightly thinner...

      i'm running 235/45/17 tires all around, and 5858 .82AR (full boost at 3500rpm, but only about 8psi for now). I have never launched the car, because that's just asking for trouble. I usually do no...

      APR stage 1 gets you 242hp and 282tq out of the 1.8t on 91 octane(slightly more for 93).




      The new GSW comes with EA888 Gen3 1.8t, making 170hp stock.

      not sure if you are still looking for parts, but a local dismantler just put up hood, grille, and light for sale.

      I hope you mean the TDI JSW, otherwise it's simply not true. The 2.5 5 speed is rated to tow 2000 lbs, and i take full advantage of it.

      Key Cover

      The MK7 GSW's key differs slightly from the Golf/GTI key, in that it has an extra button. Because of this, all of the silicon and leather key covers do not match 100%. It will probably still work,...

      You can get a 2.0t JSW with 6 speed manual. I think it was only available for 1 year (2009) in 1 trim (SEL). But it does exist out there.

      Otherwise, slap a turbo kit on your 2.5, and you'll end up...

      You can find used OEM hoses on ebay now, usually between $20 and $30. Or you can (or at least used to be able to) find 3rd party vendor hoses for the 2.5 that don't have the right bends, and they...

      actually, come to think of it, i might be a case of YMMV. My friend's near stock 2012 Golf had CEL after 30k miles due to coated MAP Sensor. So in his case, a catchcan is probably needed to keep...

      that's a good question, I am not sure it would though. It's collecting blowby, so whether the intake air is more humid or not probably makes minimal difference? It'd either be oil vapor or water...

      If the goal is simply to not have a CEL with no maintenance, then I guess keeping the MAP sensor out of the airstream may be one of the few options. The draw back is the oil will still pool at the...
