      An OBDII reader won't help you with the issues you're having. You need VCDS (aka VAG-COM) period. There is no substitute. If you plan to keep the car any length of time, you will more than make up...

      Step one when diagnosing almost any electrical problem on a Phaeton is to check the left-side battery. It is often the root cause of many seemingly unrelated problems. Step two is a diagnostic scan...

      Normal Variation in Idle Speed

      Let me preface this post by stating that I'm a car hypochondriac. Having gotten that out of the way:

      What would be considered normal variation in idle speed? VCDS shows my Phaeton idle speed...

      Some idiot contractor forgot that he left a big miter saw or table saw blade on top of his truck tool box. It flew off the box when he passed me doing north of 80mph on I-66 heading toward DC, took...

      I'll also put in a good word for Jim. I contacted him about the trim pieces on a Monday and I had them a few days later. Not sure how much stock he keeps on hand but it's worth asking. I found my...
