    2018 GTI SE 6MT AC Condenser Damaged by rock (22K miles)

    I had my local garage put a gauge on my low-pressure valve. Pressure was where it was supposed to be. I'm wondering if there's an issue with the refrigerant itself. Concerned that VW is going to try to charge me $179 an hour to find nothing wrong....

    2018 GTI SE 6MT AC Condenser Damaged by rock (22K miles)

    The AC blows like 20 degrees below outside air temp. So it cools but it's totally insufficient when it's 90+ degrees. What's annoying is that the AC in this car was REALLY good up until when the condenser was damaged/replaced.

    2018 GTI SE 6MT AC Condenser Damaged by rock (22K miles)

    Bringing this thread back to life after a couple years. When the VW dealer replaced the condenser, they claim to have purged and refilled with the right volume of R1234YF. My insurance covered the $2200 job. Since I got my car back the AC has been pretty weak. Airflow is fine but the AC...

    Maybe shoot an email over to the Humble Mechanic? Would love to watch an EA888 rebuild series.

    2018 GTI SE, shocks shot at 36K?

    I bought a 2011 BMW 328i wagon (E91) new July 2010. Sold it in 2017 w/ 140K miles w/ original suspension/shocks which still felt like new. That said, I had the factory motorsports suspension package (ZSP) so I'm not sure if these were Sachs or another OEM. On MK7.5, Koni over Bilstein B6?

    2018 GTI SE, shocks shot at 36K?

    Would these be covered under my 6YR/76K warranty or will VW consider these to be 'wear items'?

    2018 GTI SE, shocks shot at 36K?

    I'm the original owner. Mostly basic, daily driving around Washington DC and/or Westchester, NY (awful roads in both locations). No auto-x or track. The car feels like it's crashing over bumps / potholes. Suspension feels really busy and unsettled. Some 'creaking' sounds over speed bumps...

    2018 GTI SE, shocks shot at 36K?

    What's the average lifespan of a MK7.5's shocks / suspension? I get the feeling that my shocks are worn/wearing.

    '15 GTI 80k, stock, babied since new - engine locked up :(

    Oh, that's sort of lame. OP's never going to buy VAG again.

    '15 GTI 80k, stock, babied since new - engine locked up :(

    What's the conclusion here? the more I think about it, I'd probably drop the $7K.

    Trick to remove coilpack connectors?

    You've inspired me -- I'm going to leave them as is for a while, too. Maybe I'll replace when I change coil packs down the road (if I keep car).

    WTB: OEM Factory Dallas or Silver Pretoria Wheels (MK7.5)

    Glad I did not purchase. No way to get a replacement in the event of a pot hole...
