      In regard to autofi's "e-coat" comment, modern production cars do go through this process. What I can't remember, from my automotive career days, is whether an additonal primer is sprayed before the top coat color? (If a friend of mine that once worked on the paint line can answer I will update.) Maybe the "tan" is the e-coat and the "gray" is the spray primer. There would probably be a few different primer colors based on top coat color.

      Soon enough. The stock suspension rides really nice and it supposedly being winter in New England...
      Coming from a mkiv, feels like an Audi. I can't even think of another car I'd rather have. I love the rising blue too, much more exotic than DBP. The adaptive headlights are pretty cool too.

      I had everything but the rear bags but had these ones on order since they were announced. I don't think there are any rear bombers in the us yet.

      I would def get on the r stuff if you are going bagyard. After the wait I had getting my bombers for the mkiv, as soon as I decided I was getting the r I ordered them, that was like April. And even tho I was in no rush to get them I still didn't get them till like August/sept. I hate waiting on that one part that prevents you from starting your project.

      All resulted in the same confirmation on the MFI...that ASR had been deactivated. There didn't appear to be different levels of deactivation, as the message was always the same.

      Hope this helps.
      I dont believe esp can be completely deactivated, couldnt on the mk6 gti either. To go drag racing for example we had to pull one of the abs sensors

      I dont know if its true but was told it was federal law now to have some form of stability control on cars producing a certain amount of power or more

      I spray cars all the time... the reason the shade is off is because there's only a thin light coat of color (over) the primer.... (the shades of the primer and the car blend) so yes you will see some flakes!... but it's never the true color of the car when they do this because the color coat is skimped by the factory to save money and unless they take the time, and use up more paint, to lay down at least 2-4 more coats of color before they clear coat it... it will never match... hope that makes sense...

      I know I feel the same way, like I stated, but these new R's have just cost them a nice chunk of change, so for some who are a little short in the wallet may find these to be what they are looking for right now.

      I don't have an exact number but there is a thread titled "LED Tail Lights", which has received a lot of input today. I assumed that you had meant to post this in that thread. My bad!

      On the OEM ones at least the rear fog is a LED. Maybe these are the same and so you won't have to worry about replacing the light.

      makes sense but what i am saying is the bay looks like CSG not primer, my complaint has nothing to do with the shade, my complaint is because it obviously looks nothing like Rising Blue.

      The f'd up part is my neighbor just got a new $15K Hyundai and their engine bay and hood match the outside of the car

      So maybe they started painting your car with the wrong color, caught the mistake, and painted over it... is that what you think?.... This is not good... time to request a meeting with the regional VW rep if that's what may have happened...

      ?? I thought all the GTI and R after 2012 should be able to deactivated ESC. When you press and hold for 2~3 sec. It should first appeal ASR is deactivated then it would appeal ESC is deactivated with "DING" sound.

      not sure is this "fully defeatable"? http://youtu.be/fJDOOagd758

      btw, I am in Canada.

      Can any R owner confirm how the R works?

      I tried the button a couple different ways:

      -Press

      -Double Press
      -Press and Hold followed by another press

      All resulted in the same confirmation on the MFI...that ASR had been deactivated. There didn't appear to be different levels of deactivation, as the message was always the same.

      Hope this helps.
