    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    It is unlikely that the reputation of a shop has anything to do with their ability to flash code. It probably has to do with their other services.

    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    Yes, for example, there are several different rear turn signal configurations that are available in different regions. Rather than make different electronic modules, they just code them differently - the window up that is available in some areas.

    Yes, VW is making the tweaks "possible" because they are all settings that are either factory settings or something that is available in another part of the world - or unavailable here for regulatory reasons. Some of those "tweaks" may require different modules or parts and some are just settings.

    Dying sound system?

    I'm pretty confident that they'll give you something with your letter, but that is an alternative if they tell you to go suck eggs.

    Dying sound system?

    Funny you talk about swag. I had a friend who had an Impala with a ton of electrical issues. He was way out of warranty but the dealer had been trying to fix it forever without much luck, so he wrote to Chevy asking for help. He collected old car magazines and found one from the 50's where Tom...

    Sorry, I know a Pieter from Holland and had a brain lapse. Here is the data from Belgium and actually a bit worse than the Netherlands. While it is far too early to draw conclusions from data, the one factor that can be useful to compare nations is illness/deaths per million inhabitants. Here...

    Sure, it is just a little drama Sorry, but COVID-19 response seems to be my life right now and everyone needs to take it seriously - not only for yourself, but for those around you.

    Yes, add the safety aspects. Great first draft BTW and far better than the whiny letters they normally get. The address to send the letter to is in your owner's manual. The reason that you want to send it registered, return receipt required, is that somebody needs to sign for it, fill out that...

    Here's what you need to put into your letter. It should be a real letter, with a stamp, sent registered mail. Date of first service, current mileage. State that while you understand that you are out of warranty by time, you are still under mileage A factual state of the problem, emphasizing...

    So your dealership suggest that you commit warranty fraud - classy dealership. BTW, in this pricerange, warranty fraud is a felony. Open a case with VW corporate and ask for a goodwill repair. I'd also throw the dealership (that is only trying to sell you a warranty) under a bus with corporate...

    Question for the Pure White GTIs (bumper/body paint mismatch)

    You're close. When they painted the quarter panel/door, they blended it up the C pillar but didn't blend it with the bumper. That said, most bumpers (from the factory) are slightly different because of the flex agent, but both sides should be equally "off". Perhaps you should have a talk with...

    Gas prices

    Young punks.... Growing up in California I remember 16/17 cents for regular (I don't remember if anybody used ethyl) and green stamps to go along with that. When I started driving it was 33 cents a gallon in the US. In the DC burbs of Virginia, cheap regular is $2.03 with premium at 2.63 - of...
