      Thoroughly test the windows, since our 2012's were plagued with erratic 'upzy-downzy' movement that finally
      required VW to replace motors.

      You may want to look into the Go Fast Bits Diverter Valve with an improved main spring. I've had it in my
      2012 K04 Turbo beetle for over a year now without any issues. I also installed the Unitronic...

      I was able to find a two-piece bra for my 2012 Turbo Beetle at www.autoeverything.com
      Besides the standard vinyl one they offer, for a few bucks more, a 'carbon fiber look' model
      that is is easy to...

      HPA offers a Red 75 durometer insert that should fit inside your original hardware. I have it in my
      2012 Turbo Beetle six-speed but keep in mind it is constructed from much stiffer material than the...

      If you switch your problem pod to the other side and plug in that side's harness, you can zero in on
      if your harness was the culprit.

      Had to get BFI to extend the length of the hose by 3" that goes from the 'can' straight back toward the firewall and needs to curve around the back of my Unitronic intake pipe. It seems that the...

      And here I was thinking it was an additive I should be placing in my gas tank! Now my car just
      'farts' all the time after I emptied the bottle in the tank. I wish you guys would keep me better ...

      Those 20" wheels look great but after about a half-hour of driving in the NY Metro area
      they would need to be refinished. Even the 19" ones I see on Beetles are always in need
      of repair. Once you...

      If the connections inside the pod are securely attached, including the bulbs, they should work as
      mine do, without a problem. Other than what I've just mentioned, if there is a problem with them...

      The Winpower lights are completely contained pods that are simple 'plug and play.
      All you are doing is re-connecting the OEM harness attachment from your original
      pods to the Winpower pods and...

      I assume they could quickly 'pop out' both pods and reverse them in the (left/right) cavities to realize
      that one harness is defective.

      I would think that in order to get VW involved, you would have to re-install the OEM pods.

      If you purchased them from Winpower, getting info from them should be easy. Simply go to Ebay and
      locate one of their current running ads. In the 'ask a question' section, 'check off' the category...

      My 2012 Turbo Beetle with HPA's K04 is fitted with South Bend's - Stage 2 Daily. No problem
      handling the added torque of the K04 and I like the 'almost' OEM feel which makes it not tiresome

      When the Winpower lights were first offered, the bulbs were 4300K (yellow-ish color). Have
      noted that now they are installing the much brighter 5000K (white color) ones. I was able to
      find the...

      cars...

      When I upgraded my 'dog bone' insert, to HPA's Red 75 d, it totally eliminated my excessive 'wheel hop'

      I remember that prior to removal of my spoiler, just before adding my 'big wing', there
      were a bunch of bolts (4 or 6) with a strong glue having been used as well.

      I want to know why VW is always at the low end of the totem pole when it comes to
      customer satisfaction? Could it be that they have many more problems than just defective,
      poorly made intake...
