Oh, I thought we were talking about misfired with cel, mine will misfire on cold start a little but never enough to trigger a cel, my 16 does it too. I assume it’s in the tuning emission wise, trying to light the cat off quickly, mine seem fine by the end of the driveway and have never triggered a cel like some of the other poor sobs that have had more serious issues, especially on 17s for some reason,This could be semi unrelated to the issue but I noticed a misfire with out the CEL coming on, it was a couple times and that was it. So i was worried it may be the carbon buildup issue that plagued my mk6 GTI. But thinking about it, I would always fill up using BJs gas to which I learned is not a top tier fuel. Started only filling up at top tier stations with the R and haven't heard it misfire on a cold start since. I am not sure if that was the cause or if it was coincidence.. just sharing what I tried.

If tuning actually fixes the problem i would get it done just to stop the CEL coming on every month. Right now its starting to get cold again so hasn't come back in 1000km, but around now i'll go to startup my car and it'll be there.By chance was this genius an APR employee?? lol
That was one of these threads i believe: http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28640 or http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22747Actually when I first joined a few moths back there was a thread about this. Certain cars got this misfire code worse than others and they were concerned for emission purposes how they could get it to pass.
If I remember right any one who seemed to get the APR tune and was having the issues before got it fixed. I wish I knew what thread it was though. they had datalogs on it as well.
But based on other peoples experiences, they claim it will fix it if it is the cold start emissions issue that you are talking about and not another issue.
For me the first time it came and went out on its own a few days later, the other times (approx 4) it had to be cleared manually.Does the light go out or do you have to reset it every time. This is a new car.
I saw that but i'm highly skeptical. How the hell is an organization that's completely funded by the automobile manufacturers expected to be unbiased. I feel like i'd have better luck suing VW in small claims court lol.camvap.ca
I am cautiously researching this option.
