    The apps are like running a script on a computer... its a list of commands run in sequence to program the feature. If one bit of that list of commands is different for your car than others it could lead to the app not working. Long coding lets you get in there and run the steps yourself which...

    No, the long coding tells the car it has power folding mirrors now and what to do with them. Its required in addition to making sure the option is checked in the infotainment unit. Can you maybe borrow someones android and do the coding that way? The new obdeleven should work for both

    Need advice on dialing in coilovers

    Added 5 clicks to the front and its fairly neutral now even under heavier acceleration. Next (once the roads are dry again) I'm going to add more stiffness to the front and rear and see what happens. Was going for about 3/4" lower and will readjust height once some time has passed and the...

    Yes, 24mm H&R rear sway. Forgot to mention that. I've added 5 clicks to the front so far but with the holiday it might be a few days before I can really test it again. Still looking for any advice on what people do to test and set up new coilovers. Happy thanksgiving all!

    Thank you. Rear is as soft as it goes right now so I'll add some clicks to the front and go from there

    Back end started swinging around and I had to steer into it a little to catch traction again.

    Need advice on dialing in coilovers

    Hi all, Just got my EQT coilovers installed but haven't had much chance to test them out. Whats the best way to figure out how soft/firm I should set them? So far I've run them on full soft and had some pretty bad oversteer when moderately accelerating from a stop while turning left. Only...

    First set of coilovers installed. Started on full soft all the way around. Had some pretty bad oversteer turning left while moderately accelerating from a stop. That means I need to stiffen up the rears, right? What is the best procedure as far as dialing in the right amount of stiffness?

    Critique my newb detailing plan

    Hi all, I've always used automatic car washes. Convenience sucked me in. Ready to try something different with the GTI. Goal is to keep things somewhat on the easy/beginner level while protecting the paint and looking good. Hopefully keep to 2-3 in depth wash/waxes per year with regular...

    Sunglasses for Driving

    inspired by this thread I picked up some Maui Jim Howzit's from for $102 (MSRP on the box says $319). Great clarity and the polarization doesn't affect the screens in my GTI which I was a little worried about.
