      The problems sound like something Direct Injection has mostly already solved; I wonder if their baseline for comparison is against non-DI engines.

      So you bought in the year at what was historically the highest prices for homes ever (country-wide) and sold in 2012 which was still a rebuilding year in most places? Maybe hot for Dallas, but...

      Lazy in a "luxurious" way, if that makes sense. It's supposed to be smooth and predictable, nothing too twitchy or anything that could be considered rough or unrefined.

      Not necessarily. If you are talking about buying a car with a home equity loan I would agree (and there is no point now that car loans are cheaper interest than home equity), but they are great for...

      And the first generation 2.0T (EA113) isn't considered any bastion of reliability, that motor is notorious for issues. I'm surprised you didn't dump it after the warranty expired. The good thing is...

      BIG TURBO?

      Also, what were you doing for the turbo to explode? Weren't you only APR Stage 1? Doesn't speak much to long-term reliability, although I'd hope your extensive tracking are more...

      I wasn't able to really hear the turbo spool until I got the downpipe, now it is very noticeable on rev up (and sounds like a turbo diesel almost). I have an intake as well and while it makes a more...

      Those rates were the norm in the U.S. until 2010. Historically car loans are 8-10%

      Got the stage 2 update done and also the DSG tune. Very impressed with the results. Torque and HP definitely feel like the gains they claim if not more, car is very quick now. :thumbup: Also...

      You might want to look at Carbotech pads, specifically AX8 or XP8 for your occasional track/autocross use. They are a hybrid and play nice with most rotors.

      Unfortunately no. Valvelift is one major difference but it also has cam phasing and a larger turbo, fueling and the other major difference is layout. The hotside and intake are reversed from our...

      I wonder if that interior is what we can expect for the next gen Jetta. The door card looks exactly like the current Jetta.

      That's for the Mk7 and MQB cars. Also, it would make more sense to just buy a Golf R since APR stage 1 on the R makes the same numbers. It looks like they just took the Golf R turbocharger and put...

      Apparently they also updated the e-diff. It'd be nice to see a U.S. publication do a thorough test of the refresh and compare it to the previous year. They definitely look good in magnetic:

      They're not that bad really. It depends more on getting a good deal (like invoice or below) and the dealer not marking up lease factors.
