      MIL (Check Engine Light) came on whilst driving around the other day. Really reluctant to take it to the dealership, unless you guys/gals suggest otherwise.

      Call around, there are some places that can just do a simple scan to see if the fix is easy. Otherwise you should try to find someone with a VAG-COM and the know how to use it.

      Sorry about the thread jack you guys.

      Occasional hicups, fuel cut, misfires deep into 6th gear (dsg)....Always seemed octane dependent. The higher the better the car runs. I lived next to Sears point (infineon raceway) for a while so it never really manifested itself. IDK - Perhaps I'm associating independent points....

      Nonetheless, that fuel cut only ever occurs between 1st and 2nd at wide open throttle. And the misfire....if that's what I;m feeling always occurs in 6th (it's a slight stumble)....

      Are you stage 2? What octane file are you using with your APR? Have you had your cam follower checked? coil packs replaced under recall yet? stock spark plugs?

      It could be either bad plugs or coil packs causing the misfire. If you are stage 2 you might be getting fuel cuts from the programing and need to get an aftermarket HPFP and update your software to stage 2+. You also might be using the wrong octane file, I know I was using my 93oct file until pretty much every place in the valley switched to 91oct. Like I said, take it to Jeff's or maybe even S-Car-Go and have it scanned.

      Okay so here is the lowdown. At 12-2pm on the 6th we will meet somewhere near eagle RD and drive to Idaho City or something.

      Everyone fine with that?

      Srsly though. Where are we meeting we can decide where to drive when we are fed/fueled up and good to go.

      If we're meeting in Eagle and heading to Idaho city how 'bout meeting at Los Betos on Eagle or the Buffalo wild wings parking lot? They're close to the freeway for easy access towards Boise? Just throwing that out there.

      Can't wait for this one, i had a good time at the last one! Gonna try to have my brother come out in his Mk5, gotta fill xfg1's spot

      Sterling, bring me a mk2 center console

      That sounds good to me.

      If we are cruising I have a suggestion.

      in 3 hours we can make this loop with no stops, I hope we stop at some point.



      But for those who like twisties.




      Here is a mountain road south of Loman. This road is very pretty and very twisty and fun to drive. I am out there all the time for work and I try to always take this way back to Boise.

      It is a much longer drive perhaps a drive for another time.

      I think the Idaho City loop would be more than enough driving.

      just throwing out ideas, I am super excited.

      if it goes down at like 2 i think i can go and even get my brother to go as well.
      if i could make a suggestion about the location, i think 3 hours is a little long for an enjoyment ride. maybe something closer and shorter like maybe an hour or so?

      This is is very true, anyother plans? If we cut the back of the loop off it could be much shorter.

      I have also seen some rain in the weather lets cross our fingers. I really want to take the scirocco, but I might have to settle for the fresh engine swap :/

      Cross your fingers guys!
