      How in the hell do you turn this POS off? I don't want fake engine noise being broadcast through one of my speakers that I use to actually listen to music on. Whats the point of having an 8 speaker dynaudio system if one of its speakers is just playing a track off of your ECU? FAIL VOLKWAGEN!! SHAME ON YOU

      It would probably be better to reply to posts with helpful advice and not insults so people can actually get educated about their cars and how to work on them. I see you have over 3000 posts so now i wonder how many of them were stupid responses to legitimate questions.

      Seeing as how so many people have unplugged and removed theirs, it's safe to say that yes, it does.

      Yehbut, if you want stereo yer gonna have to run wires to the rear of the car and mount it there.
      440 million years ago there was an ice age that lasted 500,000 years. Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide levels were an order of magnitude higher than today. When you can explain that, I'll get serious about reducing my carbon footprint. Until then, I'm keeping the car.

      Heck, if I get one in each corner I could just rev in my garage all day long without ever having to go to town (a lose 'The Lost Boys') reference.

      This makes me wonder what the value of this thing really is, and what kind of good feature our cars could have had instead of this thing nobody wants! Really disappointing to think we actually paid for this, and are missing some other feature we might have really appreciated and had in it's place.

      Does it completely take over one of the speakers in the car as it was mentioned? Because if that's the case ima pull mine out asap, otherwise I could really care less if it's just a lil buzzing in one of the speakers, if Ima get an intake and exhaust I'm sure I'll forget about it

      it has nothing to do with the speakers in the car from what I understand. its more of a vibrating buzz box that the frequency buzzes faster as the rpms increase. correct me if Im wrong...

      As far as I know, the sound is not generated through speaker like BMW. I think it suppose to give more sense of vibration varying on RPM.

      Just disconnected mine at the ECU side. I followed the easy way. Removed the rubber gasket half way and lifted the cowling. You'll see the module to the left of the ECU. I used a long flat screw driver and tugged on the connector tab towards the right. Then pushed that connector back and it fell right off. I'll get around to securing the connector later. Tomorrow I'll take it for a spin.
