check the injector harness and/or ground wire ??
Those seem fine. At first there was just P1007 and after testing compression etc we replaced the injectors (all of them, not just one) and the filter..t he car was running smooth again and no codes. After driving 600km (in one day) it broke again on the same cylinder, giving the same P1007 plus P0087 low fuel pressure.

Benefit of Neuspeeds are they keep all the OEM spec. No adapters or different lugs needed.

You get the tracking # for the spare wheel yet?

Any idea what could cause a soft clunk when moving from a stop some of the time?

Subframe maybe?

Can you use speed bleeders for the brakes? Most use Motive Power Bleeder to pressurize system to 30PSI to get past the ABS sensor then crack open.
I’ve seen videos on speed bleeders and you pump the brakes to pressurize the system and move fluid.
Would speed bleeders be pointless since the system is pressurized; once you crack open it’ll work like a regular bleed screw.

Does anyone have suggestions to slow this down or perhaps how to DIY fix?

You may be able to do a patch reinforcement from the underside, but for the disassembly required to get to that point, I'd see if you could find a new cover altogether.

EDIT: What I found, assuming it's the driver's side. 5GM-881-405-AM-EVT

Great idea - i found the part number on VW's website (thanks to you sir), but I fail to understand if its the entire seat cushion bottom, or just replacement leather that I would have to wrap/install on the base?

I'm fairly certain that's just the cover. The foam would be a different sku.

I found these gouges behind the top window seal when I went to wash my car yesterday (photo shows the door propped open to reveal gouges). The gouges are down to the metal. What could've caused this? I hadn't opened that door since visiting a pal in Harrisburg, PA three weeks ago for a shooting range trip. I parked for two nights at his apartment complex where the average car was probably 15+ years old. Perhaps this was (un)neighborly funny business after someone saw several firearms going in and out of the car? Regardless, I'm not sure I'm comfortable fixing this myself, as each gouge is around an inch long.

Do guys think I should get USAA involved to fix it? My premium deductible (lol) is only $250.

Here's a deeply stupid question: can changing brake fluid affect brake pedal travel/movement? I can't tell if it's my imagination or not but ever since I had the fluid replaced I can't shake the feeling that the brake pedal feels different. Less smooth, and there's a noticeable.. not sure what to call it, early in the pedal travel. Almost like a depression or divot that it's getting past. Feels new to me (though can't say for sure) and the only change I can identify recently was my 20k service (brake fluid, diff fluid, etc.) but also don't know enough to say if that's 1) not normal to begin with, or 2) coincidence if it's not. Fulling willing to chalk it up to insanity but figured I'd ask just in case.

That kind of sounds like air in your brake lines.
