    VCDS Owner in central va

    I'm in the NoVA area and can supply you with a VCDS cable as well but you'd have to bring your own laptop/ross-tech software (free to download on their site) as I don't have a windows machine anymore.

    Moving to the DMV area (from FL); any mod-friendly VW dealerships recomended?

    I can pretty much recommend against taking your vehicle to Alexandria and Sheehy VW dealerships. I know that's not offering you what you want but it does make your list of dealers to find smaller at least. Welcome to the area!

    Anyone from MA recognize this R??

    Just had this delivered from carvana in the DC/Virginia/Maryland area, it’s been slightly modified. I’ve noticed it has an aftermarket front plate mounted into the side of the bumper, a screen behind the bumper as well, cross drilled rotors and I can tell some features have been modded in...

    Is the upper interior door trim removable?

    That is true but I don't have any sort of plastic welder or similar contraption to securely attach them.

    Is the upper interior door trim removable?

    Wow, that's highly disappointing! I'm surprised that all of the other pieces of trim throughout the dash and such can come out easy enough but those are unable to. Thanks for clearing that up Carlos!

    Is the upper interior door trim removable?

    Are you saying that the entire thing is not removable from the door or are you referencing the light strip piece being plastic welded only? I'm just wanting to pull the entire thing off to wrap it as I tried vinyl wrapping with it installed in the vehicle and it doesn't meet my standards by any...

    Is the upper interior door trim removable?

    I'm referring to the piece that is different colors on each of the models that is surrounding the door handle itself. I am wanting to remove this and am unsure if this is possible without removing the entire door panel or not?

    I learn something everyday (Sport Mode Switching)

    Or since you're already using the paddles you can just hold the up-shift paddle (right side) and it will kick control back over to the default mode you are presently in whether that is sport or drive. In response to OP's post I thought this was all common knowledge here but if anything I've...

    Is anyone vinyl wrapping their MK7 trim?

    Anyone else doing some interior wrap work? Would love to see more ideas and for those of you that posted with photobucket would you mind switching over to a better service like imgur? Photobucket is blurring out your photos and I recall how amazing the work was, it deserves to be seen!!

    Tinted Windows & Rear View Mirror

    I'm at 20% tint with an auto dimming mirror and with traffic behind me at night it's great as I don't like being blinded and frankly would consider dropping down to 10% tint for this. However, if I were backing up in the dark without a camera it can be a bit rough looking out the back window...

    Floor Jack question

    There's a couple of options for this. Originally I started with keeping 2-3 one gallon containers that antifreeze or vinegar comes in. I would usually go to the automotive store (autozone offers a free spot to dump your oil in the back) to empty them out when I have several filled up. However...

    DSG whining noise 5th gear

    Perhaps the oil is low enough that the smaller gear isn't achieving appropriate lubrication? The vast majority of VW forum members couldn't dream of tackling a lowering spring job or any other low hanging fruit simple mod jobs on these cars and you believe a member is going to crack open a DSG...

    I need a new engine at 48k miles, pre owned warranty voided by stage 1 tune

    OP stated "A day after dropping my car off, I receive a call from the service advisor telling me that I need a whole new engine because they “found” pieces of the piston ring in the oil pan" I didn't get any idea of busted piston being involved in this unless I missed it elsewhere in the...

    I need a new engine at 48k miles, pre owned warranty voided by stage 1 tune

    If it makes you feel better you can certainly replace all of the rings while you're in there but truth be told sometimes a part just prematurely fails. The rule of if it's not broke then don't fix it does apply accordingly on low mileage motors, if you're pulling the head and seeing that there...

    I need a new engine at 48k miles, pre owned warranty voided by stage 1 tune

    This is a bit of an extreme case but I am curious as into why everyone is automatically jumping the gun on getting an entirely different motor in this situation. OP may be able to tear down the engine (while still in vehicle mind you) and remove the one piston and depending upon what is seen...

    Need some more buying advice

    Repo likely falls into someone that sucks at handling money. The car gets repo'd and doesn't end up back in the hands of the person most likely as they are behind on payments. Chances of them catching back up are slim so I wouldn't worry about it if the car is clean and functioning well then...

    How do you feel engine replacement effects resale value?

    I'm just looking for some opinions here, have a 2015 GTI with ~44k on the clock. I noticed serious oil consumption issues with the vehicle and repeatedly took it to the dealership and after performing a tear down of the motor they discovered one of the piston rings was broken. This ring...

    PCV Testing Procedures?

    I believe the PCV is the culprit to my excessive oil consumption issues that I've been experiencing and equally have noted that my oil cap regularly has a thin film of oil over it.... I would really like to test the PCV to confirm it is indeed faulty especially since it's at a ridiculous price...
