    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I do have another MK7, I picked up a 2017 Golf Sportwagen 4 Motion, DSG with 9700 miles on it for 19.5k out the door. My 2005 TDI finally started to show its age at 174k miles, I needed a new daily because the TDI was not going to make it through the summer. Honestly no idea what I'm doing...

    Lets figure out whats wrong with my car! - Theory / Wild Speculation Inside.

    Hello all, It's time for one of these again, since I have literally 1-2 people I can talk to in the local VW/Audi scene about car problems I figured I'd turn to the internet... I know this could be devastating and I could have cancer by the end of this. I'll start with the "power" mods...
