For mud flaps if you go that route I would recommend rallyar. Or.. I just installed a set last week... Love the coverage work well to protect.

They were a thought more so when we had some decent rains here where I live. Currently itís going to enter into the dryer part and this car didnít throw mud or dirt like my truck did. If I go that route I will for sure take a look at the ones you referenced.

I looked at the badge skins and i want the pure black look on the Golf and the TDI part. But I did see some products I did like on the page like the cover for the front tiny window, as well as the covers for the factory badges.

Ordered weather tech mats for the car. Seeing to as I had it for a week I could see that for the driver side foot area, I tend to drop dirt/mud somehow in a corner of the tdi mat that is marginally covered at best. Right under the dead pedal/foot rest spot. So I suppose if anyone local is looking for factory TDI floor mats hit me up. Once these weather tech ones come in and I slip em in there, I have no need for the TDI ones. With the weather tech liners it should cover that much better and also protect the carpet much better on all the sides. Ordered the black ones in color for front and rear row, as well as 2 all black license plate frames for and additional $12 bucks. I was not able to justify the cargo mat as so far I have just put duffle bags and my umbrella in the boot.

Side note: STILL LOVING THIS CAR! And the fender audio system is a pleasant upgrade from the trucks stock base level stereo system!!

Oh man, the cargo mat is awesome. I just remembered I have an extra one LOL

Not trying to sell it to you but it is awesome. We use ours all the time. There are little barriers that velcro to them, which I should have as well. Even loading it up with duffel bags and diaper bags and food carriers, it keeps things from falling over. The other day I picked up a sewer snake and put the blocks around the wheels so it wouldn't tip over even though it was the only thing back there. I could have strapped it down, but I didn't have to.

I also have the privacy screen that slides across the top in the back, which I'm assuming you already have it. I'll be swinging through Murrieta on the 4th to pick something up on my way to LA. I already sold my VCDS cable, though, so if you want to do any stuff with my wifi one I'd need to charge you a small fee to add the VIN, unfortunately it's limited.

I still canít think of anything Iíll need for the VCDS for honestly. Thank you again so much for offering! My car did not come with the privacy screen/tonneau cover I think it was called on amazon, but with the windows tinted I dont much need one now in my opinion. I had at first wanted one, but donít think I need it now, that and itís just something I canít justify if you canít see in anyways.

My car as the factory VW storage Velcroable store thing or whatever they call it, just not a rubberized weather tech one. I was thinking about getting the blocks, but honestly donít think I need to spend the $45 bucks. I donít have an issue with a duffle back moving around much. The bag I keep back there all the time is rather heavy as it has a 20ft tow strap, jumper cables, a jumper pack, tie downs, soft shackles among a couple other items if I or anyone else gets stuck and I gotta go full blown diesel and pull a stuck something out lol. The gym bag doesnít move around too much for whatever reason either even though itís pretty lightweight.

Maybe Iím whipping this car around corners like I should? It is a Golf after all!! Honestly I am cruising with this thing so far. Only floored it probably 2-3 times since I got it, either passing or just giving it the beans. I used to bang through gears on my E36 328i manual bmw that I had for a few years... that was a fun car in a lot of ways, and had a lot left on the table when I sold it.

Oh yeah, I was talking about the mat you already have. I don't know about the rubberized one. I'll look around and see if I can find the spare set of blocks. Who were you dealing with at Murrieta? I always dealt with LeeAnn. Personally, I'd call up and ask if there's anything they'd do for your CPO that has the mat but missing the blocks that usually come with the mat

Not a bad plan.. I am mounting a list of stuff to ask when I go in there. The sales lady was Kailey. Final paper guy was Matt Crook. Ironic last name lol. Doesnít get to ask, could also ask them about the iPhone connector I was promise but forgot to ask about before I left. As it was it was after hours when I left lol. One of their guys had called the next morning to make sure it was all going well. Thatís pretty good customer service to me

Their dealer network provides an unlimited powertrain warranty with the purchase of the vehicle, but my understanding is the diesel gate CPO's have an unlimited warranty of their own (not the entire powertrain).

Did they provide you with documentation regarding their network branded unlimited powertrain warranty? I'm just curious if they give that with their CPOs.

It has a 2 year unlimited mile warranty bumper to bumper due to being a CPO dieselgate car. About the utter specifics I do not know. There was some sort of info booklet they gave me, but I donít have it with me as I am at work!

Couple questions guys. Seems to be pretty simple stuff.

What kind of pads and rotors do you guys use on your TDIs/wagons? My dad works for Federal Mogul, so I can at times get some free parts, but this time I may look to go with a different brand. I have a friend up in PA that recommends Power Stop kits. He is running their Z26 kit on his 2012 GLI and likes it a good bit. Now I don't need the super sporty one, so I would likely be looking at their Z23 Evolution kit. Autoanything has the front and rear packaged together with drilled and slotted rotors with their carbon-fiber ceramic pads for $250. Thoughts/recommendations? Reason I am looking around already for these are that one or two of the current rotors are warped (believed to be the right rear) and I like to make my decisions ahead of time to save myself the trouble of digging later, as well as letting me budget way in advance.

Secondly, I have been looking at IDparts, and am planing on doing the 20k service at 60k mark (which is about 3.5k miles from now) to jump back on the service intervals to make it easier for the future. Do I need to select the CRUA engine for the GSW TDI, or the MK6 Jetta EA288 CVCA engine? I have a MK7 Golf so I would assume the CRUA option, but I had heard that I have the EA288 engine from my reading... Also, do you guys use the base oil they offer in that kit or do you recommend I upgrade to something else? Opinions/recommendations are welcomed.

You have a CRUA engine (it is an EA288) and I use the base oil.

Since they did a full service on it at 56K, you don't need a 20K service. Just get a 10K service at 70K and a 40K w/ DSG at 80K and you'll be right on track. It's not going to hurt anything to run a few extra thousand miles on the oil and filters that were just put in 500 miles ago.

I don't have any recommendations for pads or rotors because I've actually never changed mine out on my 2012 JSW with 130K and this 2015 GSW with 75K. I changed my beetle's out once at 185K (it's at 225K). The stock pads and rotors seem to last people a really long time. I don't think you should need to be thinking about pads and rotors on a CPO this soon. That's one of the benefits of paying that extra cost. I'd be complaining if I had to replace anything on a CPO right away.

Crua
I use Pentosin.
Get the pads and rotors that IDParts sell. The oem ones are amazing TRW. I checked mine last week at 55k and they show near zero wear. The fact that yours are warped is odd to me. Most of the time you dont see that on this forum. Most factory pads and rotors last a long long time. 150-200k

From what I can tell it was a full service minus the fuel filter which I know is every 20k... so if I already have to get under the car to do a fuel filter and tire rotation I might as well do an oil change in my eyes lol.

I will double check when I get off of work, but I am pretty sure they didnít do it. Pretty much everything but that actually.

If that is true about the brakes I will for sure be going in to see what they say. It was not noticed on the test drive or even the drive home. It seems to be from a higher speed when you are hardly pressing the brake when you get the pulsing.

Fuel filter is changed from the top. If they didn't do the fuel filter, then you'll need to get one but it isn't near the oil change area. You're just wasting oil, filter, money, and time if you change the oil at 4K.

In my experience, rotors warping is usually caused by someone over-torquing the lug bolts. It's important to use a torque wrench when messing around with the wheels for that very reason.

Your description could also be wheel imbalance--or those crappy tires.
