      When I'm on a long road trip, anything over a day, then I take a bicycle foot-pump. It can also be used on the bicycle. Has both Schraeder and Presta valves.

      It's about 10 strokes for each pound...

      Canadian site (for Canadian cars) not much better. The response I get is:

      "the VIN that you have entered is not the subject of any recall or is unknown to us"

      So which is it VWoC - there is no...

      Thanks TJ,

      Now that I have a new Golf, I really will have to give this a go, after I get VCDS.

      You can get a "Windows with Bing" 11" notebook, in Canada, for $250. Same price as a Chromebook. That's a full-blown 8.1 O/S. Much easier than trying to force the other options.

      Easily available...

      USB for 2016

      So, the next obvious question is:

      Can this be retrofitted to a 2015? (For those of us unable or unwilling to wait several months).

      Dumb question from a MkIV Lurker:

      Is this fob larger than the MkIV's? Mine is already more than big enough. Have you come from other brands?

      About a year after getting mine (12 years ago) I had...

      It would be nice to get something other than the limited choice we have had for the last 10 years, wouldn't it. There were 5 or 6 colours when I got my MkIV and there was still a Grey (or maybe...

      Karthoums! I too like the OEM look (and maybe some BBS ones).

      On the Canadian site, they show for 2013 Golf. There are 17" and 18". Don't know the weight of them, but they are my favourite...

      It Comes with Age

      I'm still in my MkIV, but this has been a concern of mine, before buying a new Golf. I'm 5'10" as well, but maybe a bit longer in the leg.

      I feel the pressure in the back of the thighs, more and...

      I used to read similar scaremongering in the then-new MkIV forums. My 2003 1.8T with 210,000km on it should have had its turbo explode on me about 90,000km ago.

      I'm going with out-of-touch, AND out-to-lunch. I don't need PP, but I am just generally peeved with lack of choice, and all sorts of stuff I don't need just to get the one thing I do want.

      This, or similar generally works for me. My MkIV has been doing this intermittently since Day-1. Day-4300 is no better or worse.

      Usually after it has refused 1st, I slip the clutch just a bit,...

      Anyone have a feel for how the new 1.8T is against a MkIV 1.8T? I believe mine was rated for 6.9sec. to 60. After 12 years probably a bit slower now. I don't need faster than my current GTI, just as...

      How do the DG springs compare to what is on a Canadian Highline with the "Sport Suspension"?

      (Can't tell what the U.S. equiv. would be as they don't have a Configurator.)
    17. Still confused tho'

      It is called "spare tire mount" but is that because it sits inside the dish of the spare wheel, or does it sit inside the entire wheel well, thus losing the spare. In the photo on VW Canada site I...

      Move to Canada:D All our trims have stick-shift.

      Just saw oh-vdubya's posting while I was composing mine.
