    1. List of all part numbers for full 18" spare wheel "kit"

      I'm trying to put together a list of accurate part numbers for a spare with all necessary parts (jack, wrench, etc). I found these part numbers here on Vortex but I was hoping someone who has bought...

      Thanks everyone! I have a DSG in my current GLI, but it's the first "automatic" VW I've owned. The R will be the second - love the transmission. It really is the best of both worlds. Also, the R I'm...

      My story...

      I'll start out with the inevitable CSB :D.

      So I started my journey towards an R over a year ago when I first found out the car would be coming. Over that time I plotted and schemed and saved my...

      There is a mod for this - I used to cruise the UK Golf R forum (vwroc) before it was released here and they definitely have a way around it. I think it's as simple as disconnecting a wiring harness,...

      It's kind of amazing that you're still waiting. I know a dealership near me got a blue with DCC/Nav on Wednesday that WASN'T part of the preorder. You would think that VW would fill the preorders...

      That's not entirely accurate. The coverage is only void if something actually fails. Just having aftermarket parts can't void your warranty. Even then the dealer has to prove that your modification...

      I can definitely appreciate keeping things stock, but I don't think I've ever heard of anyone having warranty trouble because of some aftermarket audio equipment.

      You don't really buy VW for lowest cost of ownership. VWs WILL cost you more to maintain than a comparably priced Japanese car. If people buy a vehicle without knowing cost of ownership up front then...

      If $350 every 40K sounds like a lot to you then a VW (in ANY configuration) isn't the car for you. I did the 40K on my GLI in November (which is the DSG service along with normal oil change and a few...

      Thanks for sharing the story - the more people that know about it the better. I wrote a letter to VW Customer Care as well, but it probably won't make a difference at this point either.

      Yep - lots of character and really good people, plus a service department that actually fixed cars instead of pulling the "can't replicate the problem" card. Not really sure what to do at this point.
