      Here's my dumb question:

      Can the Jetta's rear hub brakes be swapped out with discs? What would be required? I realize the SEL and TDI's come with front/rear discs... so that's not the answer i'm looking for.

      Depends what your future plans are. If you go 3" all the way back, sure, get a 3". Getting a 3" now and doing nothing later will just create a bottle neck for your exhaust flow when it mates to your OEM exhaust.

      Obviously, larger pipes and less restriction/back pressure is better for FI cars.

      Yes, but you really do not want that...
      It's a HUGE PITA with windshield replacement and wiring

      What key chain works well with the keyfobs of the mk6? The ring on the keychain the dealer gave me is way too big.

      I have a valentine one radar detector that I recently purchased and I’m trying to find the best place to hard wire it into the car. I know I saw some threads in the mk5 section as to how to get the wiring to the fuse block. Now I can’t remember what search term I used to get there.

      Please help? Can I wire it to the map lights as I don’t have a moon roof?

      This is gonna sound like a re-tard question but. Would an S3 intercooler bought for a MK5 tsi have any issues fitting to my mk6?

      I searched and saw a thread on this, but it was left fairly unanswered. Can you add VW cruise control to a MKVI Jetta S and, if so, how big of a PITA is it?

    15. 03-25-2011 12:47 PM #115
      I have to believe this has been asked before, but a search turned up nothing.

      On my RCD-510, is there a way that I can have both AM and FM station presets together on the same screen?

      Ultimately what I'd like to be able to do is to flip through preset FM stations and preset AM stations using the MFSW < and > buttons.

      Obviously this works flawlessly if/when all of the presets are on the same band.

      Seems about right. I don't remember if the triple square is 14 though. About 90% sure it is.

      That's sweet! I was talking more OEM rain/light sensor and auto-dimming mirror,but the link you provided is awesome!

      Here's a truly stupid question for ya:

      How do you pronounce the "Vag" in Vag-Com?

      Is it Vag like vagina...like 'vaj' ?

      Or Vag like "bag" "rag" or "lag" is pronounced?


      Told you it was a stupid question.

      in on stupid.


      so i have that smart key for my '11 gti. i can not figure out for the life of me how to lock the car without using the keyfob. the unlock is good, works perfectly... but not the lock feature. i put my hand on the handle, walk away and it doesn't lock.

      my car also doesn't lock automatically after the key is out of range for 15 minutes. we hooked it up to vagcom and there is no setting in there that we could see.... what am i doing wrong? it's so annoying to have to take my key out for that.

      thanks!
