      Has anyone explored fitting the OE European hitch? I know it will cost more, probably a lot more, but it's such a nice and clean install. Back in my MkIV days I know a good number of people in the...

      Haven't owned a VW in what seems like way too long, but considering picking up a 2018 Tiguan SEL-P 4MOTION as a family car. Of course, one of the first things I'm researching is an APR flash....

      Alignment costs how much?!

      Have been away from the VW scene for a while now, but this seems absurd. My uncle took his GSW to the dealer for a service and while there the dealer checked the alignment. One rear wheel is out (my...

      VW's site says the accessory Homelink mirror is incompatible with cars factory-equipped with the rain sensor, so maybe that's why the dealer had to take some extra steps to make it work? I bet the...

      This tendency to wander on the highway is probably related to the alignment. If I had to guess, the eGolf has noticeably different alignment specs (possibly front and rear) than the regular Golf,...

      Unless VW changed something for the '15 model year, hitting the Auto button (turning Auto mode on) on any of VW's automatic climate control systems has always resulted in the A/C turning on.

      Agreed. When I posted (a year ago) that the 2.0l and 2.5l were the only engines recommending 87-octane the 1.8TSI wasn't available, which is what I alluded to in my post above.

      I have always used Griot's interior cleaner. It cleans well, doesn't leave any kind of residue behind, and is affordable.

      How did you handle the resistors; i.e., where did you mount them? Just stuff them in the tail light?

      DSG hanging on up shifts

      2007 GTI with 100k+ on the odometer. DSG service every 40,000 miles as prescribed. Just started hanging on upshifts, as in several seconds while it completes the upshift. Seems almost like it's just...

      Just FYI before you buy, if you have OE HIDs, you'll lose the LED DRLs...or at least that's what I've read about these kits.

      I'm still in shock that VW (finally) included rain-sensing wipers and auto headlights on the GTI...but left off the auto-dimming mirror. Seriously, what did they save, $100/car?! Just up the price...

      My car isn't particularly old (16 months), but I do have 36,000 miles on it and the trunk does open all the way on its own when I use the remote or the interior switch.

      Love the W8! I honestly think it's the best sounding 8-cylinder south of the E90/92 M3.

      Absolutely true, and had the 1.8T been available with all the goodies and with a manual (6-speed would be nice, but I'd take the 5-speed), I might be driving one instead of the Hybrid.

      Not really. Go check out fuelly.com for "real" real world MPG and you'll see that the overwhelming majority of the MkVI Jetta TDIs are averaging mid-30s. Nothing to sneeze at in what is almost a...

      I'd be shocked if they're average mid- to high-40s. On a long highway drive it's not uncommon to achieve that (speed-dependent, of course), but any form of city-type driving kills MPG in the TDI. ...
