    2019 GTI 6MT Stalling Issue

    I bought mine marked as a lemon for the stalling issue, supposedly fixed by VW. 2000 miles later not a single problem, I hope it continues like that.

    Euro MIB II 8" glass screen

    Hi guys, I have a 2019 GTI but looking to upgrade the radio to the 8” I found a disclaimer that says: IMPORTANT: the vehicle must have the memory card entry inside the glove compartment. Odd enough I don’t have the memory card accessory on my glove box. Any advice?

    Carbon cleaning at 50,000mi worth it?

    IMHO that depends, if you are going to do it because you enjoy taking care of your engine, sure do it, there shouldn’t be that much carbon build, but it will help for maintainable for sure. If you are going to pay a mechanic to do the whole walnut blasting thing I would wait to 70k miles to do...

    Mk7 Manual Transmission Oil change howto

    It can last for ever but is recommended to be changed at 70k miles is a matter of preference and preventing maintenance. It’s not going to void your warranty unless you mess up putting the wrong oil or something strange like that.

    What's a logical amount of money to spend modding?

    For me it's more like a hobby, so spend what you feel it's going to make you happy and that's it. If you want to put it into numbers it won't make sense because when you resell the car or even part out all your mods you will get 50% of what you spent. Some people spend thousand of dollars just...

    New (to me) 2017 GTI maintenance / APR questions

    Also keep an eye on the spark plugs they will tell you how the engine is doing. If you don’t have them already, upgrade to colder plugs. wouldn't hurt to upgrade the intercooler either.

    WTB: GTI Hood Insulation

    My 2019 GTI came without it and I'm still undecided on what to do.... Any benefits besides noise reduction? would the heat of the engine slowly rip of the paint from the hood?
