      Best way to check is to give the dealer your VIN and they can look to see if it was done. As for the black box above the battery, yes that is what I was speaking of. If you look at it closer it seems...

      Have you actually gotten a used key fob programmed to start your car? I was under the impression that used fobs could not be used and would only work to unlock/lock the doors.

      wasn't their a TSB for battery cables on the early 3.6's? Also since it's a 3.6 you may want to check the distribution block that is just above the battery.

      Wow that's unfortunate, did you do the 40 and 50K maintenance yourself or just skip them all together? If that is the case I can understand why they opted not to cover the repair.

      Will we ever get another manual VR6?

      I love my Dubs but I'm not interested in turbo anything. I just want a 6 spd manual mated to a VR6 like VW used to give us.

      This is a interesting topic, I have a RCD-510 in my B6 Passat and it remains on till I remove the key. I'll have to play with VCDS to see if I can get it to mimic what you guys are seeing on your B7's
