    Not sure why they have you remove glovebox. I never had to to replace head unit. In the first paragraph of the DIY post, I put a link from Vortex that shows exact steps for removing head unit.

    How about digging through the DIY article on page 1 in the removing CP and installing FeC section? "Jack Kirry is contacted through Skype, his username is jacekk993."

    What do you miss from your previous car?

    Rear wheel drive. My wife still has the car a 2006 325i so I can drive. It is not nearly as fun or quick as the GTI, but rear drive is a different experience.

    Liked my GTI over an R. Am I crazy?

    IMO, you're "batshit". I say this if you are just comparing the vehicles and not factoring money. The R has the difference in price in upgrades so for me it is the better value going in, but the difference is not enough for me to take the financial hit of trading in and purchasing. I purchased...

    DIY MIB1 to MIB2 Infotainment Conversion (Part 1)

    First, congratulations on getting as far as you have. My first guess would be that you did not toggle a bit letting your head unit know that you have a rear camera installed. This would mean that the car the new head unit came out of a vehicle that did not have a rear camera and was coded this...

    need help deciding on keeping 2015 or upgrade to newer

    I too have an early 15 purchased in 2014. No way would I sell it. I know it is a good car as no problems, rattles, etc. Not going to chance getting a problem car along with car payment as it is paid off. I have it dialed in with $10K of nice mods, MIB2 infotainment unit, etc. No way, love the car.

It can be done by a dealer or anyone who has a VW account authorized by VW to do...

    Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating

    Thanks for the heads up. I have been a fan of Klasse polymers, both their all in one and their sealant as it lasts for 5 to 6 months. Anything to cut down the maintenace. This Turtle Wax product looks promising and doesn't break the bank.

    Mk7 high miles

    65K miles on my 2015 GTI SE. Only issue was a bad coil at 40K miles. My wife drives my 325i BMW. I still drive my 97 Civic HX that I purchased new as I am trying to get 1/2 million miles; currently at 418K and it runs like new as I am not bad with a wrench. Another similar, but dated...
