      I recently cancelled the subscription for my MKVI because the sound quality just isn't good. It is nice for traveling since it's always the same, but for daily use the poor sound quality and the...

      I like basic 5-spoke wheels too! And I like getting the VW OEM wheels. The Passats and the CCs have some nice wheels, e.g., the famous Interlagos wheels. I'm using Monte Carlo 17" x 7.5 ET47 on my...

      I'm surprised it works from down in the pocket. I'll have to give it a try in my MKVI! It would be nice to hide the thing.

      ^^But 2010 could get the RNS-510! And the very easy 9W7 replacement was ultimately covered by VW for those of us that did it early!

      And I'd say that's exactly why we don't get it. They said the same thing about the RNS-510 in the MKVI and sure enough it disappeared after 2010. Fortunately I have one, but only because I purchased...

      I think this must be reversed (front and rear ET). On the MKVII the rear fender appears to stick out even further than the MKVI.

      For me, the perfect thing is 17" x 7.5" wheels with slightly wider/taller 235/45/17 tires. Then of course the offset has to be in a good range. I have ET47, which works great for me. It's not quite...

      Just and FYI, the Windesa (link below) are even better than OEM because of the way the side window shades attach. The OEM version uses stick-on plastic things to hold the shades. Windesa uses a neat...

      I have that in the Set-up menu for the radio, but I have an RNS-510. Even so, I suspect it's also right there on the RCD-510 or maybe any of the VW radios. I don't think it's a VCDS issue.

      Already stated above, but the thing to do is simply extend the cable you have. I got an extension from Radio Shack for about $5 for the Apple connector. I think maybe it's called an iDock extension...

      Yes, that's true! The U-Haul #29143 is a Curt 11000. That's the one I have and I got it installed at a local U-haul. All of the stickers peel right off to have just a nice shiny black hitch.

      Thank you!




      It does look substantial with the bigger round tubing, but it's still just a Class I hitch. With it exposed, I think the bigger round tubing looks much nicer than the smaller...

      Tinted is always better, regardless of the color of the car. I think the Cherry is fugly, just way too much going on in those lenses. The Tinted look as good off as on, simple but elegant. The...

      Michelin Primacy MXM4 in 235/40/18 is exactly what I would do! I did similar with 17" wheels on my MKVI TDI and then my friend did it with the 18" wheels on his MKVI GTI. The 235 adds width and...

      I could have been very happy or maybe even happier in a Golf compared to a GTI, but the lack of the manual transmision in a fully-optioned car ruined that for me. I want the upgraded sound, nav,...
