      There's really no need to turn ESC off, for a coupe of reasons: 1) the system is "smart" enough to know the difference between traction loss in the snow vs other conditions, so it really shouldn't...

      Q: Why would VW update the Jetta's headlights for 2017/the last model year?

      A: It isn't the last model year. The Mk6 will drag out into part of 2018 while we wait on the Mk7, making the current...

      I agree 100% with the previous poster... as a first step, change the default colors on some of the items so that not everything is white. The layout and organization is fine.

      Then add more...

      Yeah, more info would be helpful. The 24v is in all 2003+ cars and some 2002s. The 12v is in all 1999-2001 cars and some 2002s. The 12v (usually) has red exposed/decorative plug wires whereas the 24v...

      I see that you have a leak, but for future reference, these cars ALWAYS throw coolant lights when the temps get low. If you don't slightly overfill the reservoir over the full line, you could add at...

      Wow. Such a nice MkII. What I wouldn't give to find a nice '91-'92 GLI in that color :eek:

      I'd agree with the others; the Jetta sedan has more rear seat leg room than both your old JSW and the new Golf Sportwagen. The new Sportwagen has a tiny 0'5" wheelbase increase compared to the...

      Nice ride, man!

      I feel like your car has to be SUPER rare in Honolulu... it's a 2014 that's not an Edition 30 car (probably 3/4 of the '14 models were Edition 30s), and it has HID headlights....

      I have 152k on my '03 GLI original pads and rotors. But I'm sure they're different than what VW is using now. I have only 12k on the '14 GLI and pads for days.

      I believe C&D estimated over 100k...

      17 Questions

      I've tried in vein to search for answers about the 2017 Jetta, so I thought I'd ask here instead. They've probably been answered before, but I've had a serious absence from the forums, so my...

      VW Kills Another Legacy Color

      Browsing around VW's website looking at MY2017 changes, I noticed that VW killed another legacy color for 2017, at least on the Jetta (pardon me if this is a duplicate thread).

      Reflex Silver (MkIV...

      F Cardinal Red

      I'm not sure if this is already a thread, but eff Cardinal Red for replacing Tornado Red on all trims but Sport and the GLI. The color is atrocious. It's borderline purple in the right light, and...

      Got the GLI back today. The service department opted against removing the motor for the repair. It got a full new clutch and new rear main seal. Props to my dealership for getting it fixed so fast......

      The only reason I posted here instead of in the 2.0T forum is because we have slightly different engines and transmissions in the GLI and Beetle than in the rest of the gen 3 2.0T kingdom. The GLI...

      I don't think "better than new." I think "good as new" is more appropriate, since all of the parts going back on are still stock.

      My concern is that there could be unseen collateral damage from...

      Update... my GLI has two problems:

      1. A piece of metal from the pressure plate is gone--broken off and missing. So I'll now have an entirely new clutch installed.

      2. A leaking rear main seal,...

      I've asked this question before, but now that MIB-II is actually out, I'll ask again... has anyone inquired at the dealership about compatibility with a VW CD changer? In Europe, a glove box mounted...
