      What shop did the tune for you?

      Took it with the girl to see Mission Impossible...

      come out and find the rear wiper cap gone...pretty sure it was there when I went in...

      Oh and there was a MkV Jetta in it with a badgeless grille...and the hood notch was filled...

      I have MKV R32 and today I got my last tuning part in place that I will install. a month ago I installed evoms intake, then revo tune and now finally milltek cat back. Difference IS noticable.. not just purely on more torque and a bit power but over all driveability is far better.. very cool.

      and related to my setup, check this comprehensive and detailed article about tuning R32 with setup I have

      Anyone have closeup pics of this rear wiper cap? I heard about people losing theirs a few times and I've never seen anything on my rear wiper that looks like a cap that could be taken/lost. I've looked at other MkV's and they all look the same as mine...
      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.
      Help us with suspension specs!

      Oh damn! the whole cover huh? I still got mine! I was getting worried about it because I see so many posts about lost ones and I thought maybe you guys were talking about the exposed nut that you can see through the opening of the cover and maybe there was a cap for that or something.

      Thanks for the pic
