    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    I need to check for this on Android Auto as well. Keep meaning to, keep forgetting, and keep getting annoyed when I just want to charge my phone. :p

    Early Retirement Investing: Ditch my 2018 Golf R?

    I agree with most of what others seem to be saying. Car's aren't an investment. You'd likely take a hit if you just bought it new unless you got a hell of a deal. Even then, circumstances could give a hit (took a small one trading in my 18-month Ram that was technically 'in the black')...

    Need help with some correction

    I was gone for two weeks, and while gone the car got a bit crusty due to daily morning fog, etc. even though I washed it the day before I left. I also got a small row of bird crap on the hood. I took a clean microfiber and clean water and washed off the bird poop to try and avoid...

    2019 VW Tiguan

    That's a nice discount. Think we got around $3500 off ours, and that was *supposedly* in part because I was getting the GTI.

    What is your occupation?

    Thanks! Back in the day I washed out of the Arabic Linguist course and had Loadmaster as a top preference for retraining. Got Weapons. Can't complain but would've like the additional travel you all seem to get. That, or maybe refueling boom operator. ;)

    2019 VW Tiguan

    If we didn't need the extra row we probably would've been looking at the Mazda5. Another problem we have with a lot of other smaller SUVs is either I don't fit to drive (which I do a lot when we're all going along) and/or no one can fit behind me unless I'm cramped while driving. Nearly all of...

    Performance air filter testing

    Heh Yeah, hard to find objective reviews with data. Some have decent overviews though. Diesel Ops had one aimed at trucks but applies in general for the aFe options. I will say for both the first two aFe instructions have said just vacuuming the dry filter will return it to at least 80%...

    Performance air filter testing

    Since the thread's pulled up and second time asked about aFe/alternatives without an answer: I ran an aFe full system on my '99 Ram for years with a dry filter. Worked well, no issues with anything extra where it shouldn't be, and easy to clean. I have one now in the GTI as, at minimum...

    2019 VW Tiguan

    SEL and up does have a fair bit of tech. The digital dash is sparkly, but after that wore off I'm kind of glad it's not in the GTI. A lot of graphics that don't add much, although some customization is nice. But my Ram had a less flashy one I could do more with. I'm happy with the GTIs. I...

    2019 VW Tiguan

    My wife traded her 2013 Sienna SE for a 2019 Tiguan SEL R-Line 4Motion. Bit smaller, but she likes that it handles easier and it has the 4Motion in case we end up back in Colorado (the SE version Sienna didn't offer AWD in 2013). Ours has the third row. At 6'2" I can sit there, but I'm nearly...

    Good price?

    I was looking at Tire Rack as they tie a couple other sites for price and the forum bonus. But if I'm reading this right a $30 difference is persuasive. This is the right H&R 24mm RSB for a Mk7.5 correct? Says it is, but want to be sure. My reading has been off some lately...

    What is your occupation?

    We had some overlap then. I was at 4 SOPS other side of town at Schriever 2002-2004 before the mountain. Lived in Fountain then, went to sleep some nights to the artificial thunder & lightning during exercises on Carson. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Likewise. Also possibly your plug port on the phone starting to get loose/worn? Had that issue on one phone a couple years ago. Otherwise agreed with the other suggestion, might the port on the car itself. Hopefully nothing with the infotainment, but always possible.

    I was referring to the Amazon link provided to get the dongle. Of course the app would be on Android or ios app store, unless you like living life on the wild side. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Sunglasses for Driving

    ESS Crossbows. Hate having to spend too much money on something like sunglasses for work and home, and the replacement lenses are under $100. Wiley X has worked pretty well in the past as well. Lenses can just be a minor pain to clean on the inside due to the coating. I've already told my...

    What cars have you had?

    Imagine how light a 4-cylinder turbo from today would make it? :D One from then would've sucked though most likely.

    No. I forgot the name of the Amazon one (Clarita or whatever it is). if you're that touchy just about an OBD scanner perhaps you should take a breath or two.

    What cars have you had?

    That it did, although also heavy. Had fun on the Autobahn regardless. Think I averaged 115 MPH. Kicked in the governor once around 135. I was pissed, car was having a great day and felt like it would keep pulling. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    Yep, thinking of it. VCDS is a bit out there at the moment for basically scans and preference changes so will probably get an OBDeleven to start. I checked it the other I've and for what it is If rather go with the one with a company a bit more invested, once they confirm the 2019 compatibility...

    Thanks. That's what I was thinking but wanted to check. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
