      car looks clean
      Sorry to hear about your rabbit, I liked the look of it

      I have a couple questions for you... 1. have you/are you willing to sell your old taillights? I have the brighter red, but love the darker sets

      2. I have an 07 wolfsburg and I was wondering if I can do the remote windows down? If so, how?!

      Thanks for your help!

      ^^this. Get a new set.

      And for the window remote: find someone with a Vag-Com. It's a check box in the comfort section of the software.

      i ended up putting the stock tails back on, should be getting my refund back once the led's are delivered back.

      also in the news is i got a vag-com micro-can to try to get the led's tails working but no dice. dont plan on keeping it very long.

      so today did some data logging and got some bad news, looks like i'm getting missfires all over the place in stock and chipped, there was problems with the throttle body closing, so did a TBA and that didnt fix it, although the TB is opening all the way in stock mode although idk if the results i got IS what it should read (such as going down to 98% and not staying at 100% the whole run. there is no question its running much worse in chipped mode than stock mode, thankfully it is still under warrenty, but its going to be tough to convince the dealer that its giving miss fires even though it doesn't store them or throw a CEL. its not really worth it to me to move coilpacks around to see if its the coils. so tomorrow going to put the stock intake back on and lock it into stock mode, appointment monday at the dealer.

      3 seperate runs paused between them but didn't seperate, chipped


      one regular run, chipped


      stock mode.


      i also logged just missfires for each cylinder and every cylinder was throwing multiple missfires before the vagcom got to the end of how long it wanted to remember (minute or seconds) before it cleared to 0 and continued, as seen above where it says total missfire counter and would go back to zero even during the same pull. hopefully the dealer doesn't do the whole no CEL no problem deal.


      also got my refund back from the LED's.

      apparently my a/c was over charged at 1.7lbs. and it was suposed to be at 1.2?
      the said my trunk isn't suposed to fling open.

      they could not find the rattle, or replicate the missfires, so i went over to the dealer to go for a ride with the tech.

      (wireless dealer vagcom tool is soooo cool BTW, ross tech hurry up) was able to get the missfires to show up at a very slight rate, also showed him my logs, and the rattle during the shake down.

      they are keeping the car over night and they gave me a mk6 golf loaner.

      well got the car back from the dealer last week, they gave lenghy explanations about my conerns, such as the pressures of the a/c system, being too high, recovered some fluid. they claimed he replaced some bolts for the rattle, its worse now...they are blamming the misfires on "commbustion and poor fuel". but they were nice enough to replace the trunk hinges and lube it up so it would open all the way, which it does sometimes now.

      this is not the end of it as there is clearly something wrong with the car i get a massive power loss at around 3k rpm with or without the misfires because of the throttle body closing for some reason. waiting to hear back from vwoa on the issue.

      i've also ordered a 2nd trunk grocery hook, and also another set of LED tail lights.

      Awesome! Where did you find a Votex lip for $70, if you don't mind me asking? Because that is, in fact, a steal

      picked these up for $69 shipped. the second one is messed from a sunglass holder or something. but it doesnt matter anyway since i'm going to be stealing the connector to make a wire harness for the homelink visor so i don't have to hack it up, i still have to order the other half of the connector and the repair wires though.
