    Anyway to get the latest software in a MK7.5?

    For Android, you can buy a USB dongle that plugs into the car and allows for wireless android auto. I know the same thing exists for carplay, but I am not familiar with the options and quality. Out of curiosity, does someone have a link to that sheet?

    feeling guilty...forgot about oil change

    You are fine. Sometimes new/used cars sit on the lot for over a year before they are sold, and they dont change the oil before the owner drives off.

    Thank you for the feedback. I'll probably pick one up once inventory normalizes and Google doesn't shut the project down 😅

    If the factory paint was peeling/defective while still under warranty (for what part of the car's warranty for 2015 year cars that covers paint defects) and you reached out to the dealer with evidence (and this is documented in email - not a phone call unless you recorded it with the date being...

    Wireless Android Auto Indiegogo project

    I saw that 9to5 article a few weeks ago. They reviewed a POC version (both software and hardware), so it makes sense they did not do a video review in real time showing performance. I'm a little surprised there aren't any youtube reviews like this yet for the final product. Maybe in a few for...

    Wireless Android Auto Indiegogo project

    Has anyone here bought this? If so how is it working on your factory head unit? What phone are you using as well? They just put out the following update for VW headunits and was curious if anyone has purchased it yet and tried it out?

    2019 GTI DSG 1st gear hangs

    Was not getting on it, was accelerating with traffic from a stop at a red light. Oil was at around 140-180 during the 2 times it happened last night. Does the transfluid heat up about 1:1 with engine oil? I'd assume it is a little slower.
