      I think this is the information about the possible upgrade for you. I don't know if the firmware links still work, but it might get you started.

      ^^I do the same thing. It's been that way for any manual transmission car I remember. I think it's normal, unless it's really bad. Just go to second then to first, problem solved.

      ^^It really does make you wonder. Too bad though. I think I'd really like a TSI loaded but with a manual transmission. The good news, the GTI will fit me just fine when the time comes.

      I think I'd like a TSI, except you end up with an automatic transmission if you get any options. I'd have to go for the GTI.

      I like firmer shocks, but haven't done it yet on my Golf. The Drivergear springs also look pretty sweet. They're linear, slightly firmer, and just a pinch lower than OEM. The Drivergear springs are...

      The VCDS coding is to turn off the DRLs, so that's not why the fogs don't work. I think the trigger wire was to activate the parking lights in the first position, but I suspect it also enables the...

      I had that happen at the dealer once, but the damage was much worse. They paid for a mobile paint repair guy to come in a truck and he repainted the wheels. he didn't even have to take off the tires....

      Yes, there was quite a bit of talk about this with MKVI and sure enough it happened to me with my 2010. I did find that it gradually got better or is completely nonexistent now. I think part of it...

      I like basic 5-spoke wheels too! And I like getting the VW OEM wheels. The Passats and the CCs have some nice wheels, e.g., the famous Interlagos wheels. I'm using Monte Carlo 17" x 7.5 ET47 on my...

      I'm surprised it works from down in the pocket. I'll have to give it a try in my MKVI! It would be nice to hide the thing.

      ^^But 2010 could get the RNS-510! And the very easy 9W7 replacement was ultimately covered by VW for those of us that did it early!

      And I'd say that's exactly why we don't get it. They said the same thing about the RNS-510 in the MKVI and sure enough it disappeared after 2010. Fortunately I have one, but only because I purchased...

      I think this must be reversed (front and rear ET). On the MKVII the rear fender appears to stick out even further than the MKVI.

      For me, the perfect thing is 17" x 7.5" wheels with slightly wider/taller 235/45/17 tires. Then of course the offset has to be in a good range. I have ET47, which works great for me. It's not quite...

      Just and FYI, the Windesa (link below) are even better than OEM because of the way the side window shades attach. The OEM version uses stick-on plastic things to hold the shades. Windesa uses a neat...

      I have that in the Set-up menu for the radio, but I have an RNS-510. Even so, I suspect it's also right there on the RCD-510 or maybe any of the VW radios. I don't think it's a VCDS issue.

      Already stated above, but the thing to do is simply extend the cable you have. I got an extension from Radio Shack for about $5 for the Apple connector. I think maybe it's called an iDock extension...
