Kind of laughing a little, just saw this thread.
just spent a put load of money on a new turbo, some exhuast work, new tires, an allignment and inspection. car was running great THAN this weekend had the EPC light come on car fell flat on its face, got the car running again. Than check engine light, got it to go out. Than last but not least the car is running above 190 degrees at idle
So the car had been taking a few seconds longer to start over the past week. Had it serviced on frinday at the local VW dealer and was told that the battery voltage was low and they wanted $150 to install. Told them no and picked the car up after hours with the idea of purchasing and installing the battery on Saturday. Well sure enough frinday night stopped at the store, got back in the car and it wouldnt start. Tried to get a jump and no luck, then tried to push start and no luck. I installed the new battery on saturday and still nothing. It turns over but still wont fire up. So had it towed to the dealer on staurday and wating for a response hopefully tomorrow. I'm hoping its not the ECU, saw a somewhat horror story on here that you have to turn on the rear defrost and blower when push starting as per the manual or you could fry the ECU. Crossing my fingers.
Soo for once in ownership i have a problem i dont think i contributed to, lol. But i am starting to get a vibration only at idle as if something in the rotating assembly is out of balance. But it has the same feeling when my Ignition coils were failing and was only on 5 cylinders. Seeing how i havent done spark plugs since 75K....ima t 149 now, i think i should maybe swap those out so see if that does it.
I still have my 1st to second not wanna shift issue. ever since i got it abck from the shop who pulled it apart for a diff issue. Im thinking maybe theres an issue with the Flywheel. I have heard too many horrorstories of shops not torqing the FW bolts correctly.

She needs an alignment and its all my falt. I fell asleep behind the wheel (It was one of the worse days of my life) and scraped the right side wheels against a curb . Then she has not had a bath in 4 weeks. I'm working 100 hours weeks plus I have had to travel in and out of town. All that equals no time. Its ok because I got her new shoes yesterday!!! Plus I'm going to give her the detailing of her lifetime when I get back in town from a business trip next week!!!

Stock is like virginity: Useless and should be gotten rid as soon as possible!!!!
It hates mornings just as much as i do especially now that it's starting to get colder. for all you guys who drive year round is there anything you guys do to help deal with cold starts? My cousins STI usually won't even start if its below a certain temperature

The line to my rear washer fluid broke which caused the washer reservoir to empty all of the 3 liters :
Update: I went to the dealership and found out the part that broke is the washer fluid pump so that will need to be replaced
Took it to an exhaust shop because I thought my cat sh*t the bed, turns out it was a flex pipe causing it to sound deeper and perform sluggish? They're replacing that and they ran the cel code and it has 2 misfire codes. My cel was on previous to this for an o2 sensor, now I have to figure out WTF is wrong with it now lol getting close to the 80k service so I'll prob just do that too on top of the repairs. Goddamn money pit
