      Anyone else out there noticing rough idle and hard starts with their GLI? At stoplights, you can see and feel the steering wheel vibrating even at normal op temp. Also, it is taking longer than normal to get the engine to start and I'm noticing a pulse or surge while at 3500 rpm in 4th climbing a slope. This has all come about in the last few weeks. Car has 12k miles no mods or flash running Chevron 93. I'm taking it to the dealer Monday.

      Thanks for starting the thread. Been noticing some noise comparable to an STI I was around that had some trouble with it's pistons. It sounds a little like a diesel in it's roughness. Hope someone has some answers.

      Can you describe the pulse/surge issue in greater detail?

      When holding rpm/speed the car lurches slightly......about the speed of a heartbeat for lack of a better metaphor. Like tapping the gas pedal to a song. It's faint, but definitely there.
