it's running very rich upon start up to heat up the catalytic converter. makes it feel very snappy. once that is up to temp, it will be in eco mode. and eco feels slow.

I have to wait a whole 2 second for the revs to start dropping and another second for it to be at a smooth transition spot. Because of this it looks like I’m fking with the guy behind me lol. To add to this when I do depress the clutch I see the rpm blip by about 300.

Are you sure your clutch bearing and/or pressure plate are ok?

Question for the group. On my 2015 GTI engine block, just forward of the turbo heat shroud is a coolant line. That line mates to the engine by a mount. Under the mount and inside of the coolant passage, a gasket (o-ring) sits around that mount plate. Mine blew out and I can’t find the correct size. I’ve tried 210, 211, 212. I’m about ready to throw some gasket maker RTV on and see how that goes. Can anyone shed some light on what size the correct gasket is and where I’d find it?

I’ll try again

Can high beams be adjusted separately from low beams?

Occasional puffs of smoke on startup. Plugs are dry. No oil on turbine side. Oil in my inlet. Am I getting lucky and it's just the PCV? It's the original and I'm going to order one anyways. FCP shows my replacement is a "BM" is this one ok? T.i.a.View attachment 292495
Is oil in the intake a direct sign of a failing PCV? I thought a bit of oil in the intake was in the category of "Das VW."
