      I took my tt to one of those touchless car washes and for 10 bucks it actually did a nice job getting the gunk off of the wheels, when cleaning myself I usually just use a toothbrush and some general car wash concentrate cleaner for the tight spaces, and either a mitt or larger brush for the larger areas. I let it go months at a time and it always comes right off, although I do wax semi annually, so that may help... good luck!

      Forever the optimist. There's nothing wrong with deleting all that crap. Too many people are quick to blame problems on deleting emissions and other related, problematic garbage.

      What about Flitz metal polish? I'd try to wrap some around a toothbrush and get in there.

      tsk tsk tsk. You shouldn't be running polished lips in the wintertime.

      Depending on how bad it is you may need to use polishing compounds, not just a metal polish. For metal polish though, I only use Happich Simichrome

      Also sold my Boostmachine. I refuse to have a part on my car made by ClownShack. Mr. ClownShack is a Jackass..
      I need to pass inspection - Or I would

      I understand that Unitronic can delete the CEL but it's an improper airflow code. Not sure if that's included and the local Uni dealer (local VW Dealer) hasn't bothered to answer or respond to that question.

      I'd be willing to pay to switch from APR93 to Unitronic if it rids me of this crap.

      You'd have to swap to wideband and go Eurodyne IMO. All emissions related codes can be cleared from there.

      Got my car back from the shop. New turbo gasket is in. High temp threadlocker and Nordlocks on Felt like I had a boost leak on the way home. Pressure tested and checked their work. Had to redo the clamps they put on (amateurs). Car runs much better now

      Uni themselves won't even respond... Tried emailing and Facebook. At this point, It appears their Customer Service has already spoken for them

      I have a feeling the time has come to either part ways with the TT or suck it up - Drop her off at Eurowise and have them rebuild, swap to a larger turbo and run a stand alone software

      It's a matter of spend the money and keep her another 5-10 years or part ways while I can still come out ahead.

      Let's be honest, we never come out ahead. The awesome thing about Uni, you don't have to talk to them. they have dealers in certain areas that you talk to. Most of the time they don't flash your car, we do! (In the nj philly region)
