      Hey don't apologize, we are all good. An erwin subscription would be the best. Bently is not great at the best of times. They really let things slide. The key is to find the 'first' error that causes...

      I am actually glad you said all that. It's easier to have a discussion when you know more about the person. Now on to the first problem. VCDS, when it does an autoscan will ignore missing modules and...

      Not sure what you mean by s/u VCDS, but first I would ensure proper communication across the board. Then Clear all DTCs and go for a test drive. Then see what comes back.

      The 300 is a generic random misfire, so ignore it. The 304 jumping to 303, could very well be that coil pack. The 301, well, as suggested replace all 4. It's the first place to start.

      Warm air getting sucked into the engine will reduce power. Now you decide on which intake is better.

      Up until last month, I had APR stage 1, an AWE turbo outlet pipe and an S3 intercooler. Air cleaner is stock. The car had better throttle response than stock and I did not lose power in hot weather....

      I have not heard of such a problem and none has reported it in the tSI forum. You might try searching the web and other VW forums. I would be concerned. If it is indeed a pressure problem, the TSI,...

      If you have indirect TPMS, then any wheels installed will be fine as long as the reset is done via the console button. If your 09 rims have the metal stem sensors, get them removed and plain rubber...

      Disconnecting the Haldex will result in no dash lights. However the rear wheel bearings will not keep together without an axle and bolt in place. FWD Tiguans have different rear knuckles and...

      Just keep in mind that the minute VW hears the word layer, or gets a letter from one, Customer service will no longer deal with the issue and it will be sent to their lawyers.

      You say no codes or boost drop. Did you actually diagnose this with some scan device? If not, then that should be the first thing to do. There are many DTCs that do not trip a CEL.

      It's been the same here or colder every morning for the past 45 days. The engine is not happy, but I don't hear any issues. The OEM filter is one of the best. And with any filter, if the oil is too...

      In Europe they have it. One of my aftermarket suppliers lists the oil pan (with hole) and sensor. I have no clue where the wires run to. Never looked it up.

      Go into VCDS, and find the module by part number. When you compare the long coding there to what is in the log, it will make more sense. I have not had to do it in a few years, so I am a bit rusty.

      I am APR stage 1, with Michelin AS/3 tires +4Motion, and it sure is nice to put your foot to the floor and have no wheel spin or torque steer.
