seriously.....two Iphones, sunglasses, wallet and the car wants the seatbelt connected :rolleyes:
I leave my heavy af gym bag with 3 pairs of shoes, water, multiple containers and my bag with sunglasses, wallet, etc on my passenger seat and it’s never gone off…

Now, if we’re talking all of the exterior sensors? Those have been doing the random dance since July.

Hold off for a little... there may be a holiday sale? I picked mine up 10% off if I'm remembering correctly.

Save some money and get the trans insert. You have to modify the OEM mount but you save like $200.

This is the "ask a stupid question" thread, right?

Whenever i search for parts and other things related to the Golf, GTI, and R, i see codes like 5G, BE, BA, BV, BQ, 5G1, etc.

i have searched and searched and i cannot find a clear / consistent explanation of which models, variants, etc these refer to.

Would someone please educate me? Thanks in advance.

Can you show any specific examples? Offhand it sounds like maybe it's the revision (i.e., BL revision PCVs), but I think some context might help. There's all sorts of deep lore mfers on here know
