Talking Meet Schmutz! The "Dirty" diesel, Growler's 2015 GSW S TDI DSG

I never thought this day would come. I will soon be less one ALH.
However,. I just could not pass up the deals they were doing on the "new" 2015 TDIs after the first round of Dieselgate fixes.
Meet Schmutz (German for Dirt, the "Dirty" Diesel Wagon), my new 2015 Golf S Sportwagen.
Midnight Blue Metallic, Black interior.
DSG (beggars cannot be choosers, they were going fast)
No sunroof to leak
No heated seats
no expensive 17" wheels/Tires
my kind of VW.
Looking forward to learning all about the new systems to keep up on.
a photo.

more to come~
Aaron

Awesome! I just got a 2015 TDI Golf SportWagen yesterday! Mine is also the "S" model but I got the 6 speed manual.

No sunroof to leak (Aint that the truth!) But the wife really wanted the heated seats, oh well, like you stated, they were going fast and this was actually the last TDI that the dealership had on the lot!

Did you find the jack? LoL, took the general sales mgr of the dealership to show me and my salesman where it was located!

I am also going to put a full size spare in place of the donut that the car came with. (I kept my full size spare from a previous TDI I turned in for the buyback!)

Well, it doesn't quite roll off the tongue like Schnurren, Knurren, Matrix, or Growler, but it does have character!

Was the sticker on yours $27,055? That's what a couple S DSG wagons are here,test drove one. Did your dealer mark up the price,or let you have it for sticker minus the rebate? One I looked at would be $5500 off($5k rebate and $500 returning customer)-that would almost take care of difference between my '16 Jetta trade value and payoff.....not sure If I want a 50% increase in payment,though. The dealer did have a Night Blue S wagon,it was the last manual they had,but it had been sold-that was $24,955 I think.

My sticker was just under 27k, it had monster mats, rear cargo organizer with load blocks, and emergency kit as dealer options.

OK-the ones I looked at had those options,along w/ installed mudflaps,which put it just over $27k. I think I may go for it-I'll head up after work in morning and see how things may shake out.

This shows my ignorance of anything newer than mk4...

How am I supposed to put fuel additive (powerservice silver fwiw) if I cannot stick a funnel into the fill hole... the misfuel thing won't allow me to insert my funnel.. how do I get around this "feature"...?

Tweaks and mods
Since purchase I have done the following MODS with VCDS
  • Windows Up/Down with Keyfob
  • All doors unlock with one press of unlock button
  • Set AC system to Hot country mode to improve AC system performance. (instructions below)

    http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...t-Country-quot

    Instructions from the link above:

    1) Open VCDS
    2) Go To Select Modules
    3) Under the "Installed Modules" window - select number 08 - Auto HVAC
    4) After the control loads - select Coding - 07
    5) Click the button for "Long Coding Helper"
    6) Press Tab or arrow down key until you see "Byte 12" selected
    7)Under the drop-down for "Bit 4-7" select "10 Temperature Adjustment: Cold (Hot Countires)"
    8) In the top-left corner of the window - select the "Exit" menu item
    9) Press the "Do It" button to save the new setting
    10) If all goes well - you should see a popup "Coding Accepted"

    I haven't done this myself or checked what my setting is since I am happy with how my AC performs. Might check just to see what my settings are just for kicks.

With "hot country" coding, is there any evidence that it shortens the life of the compressor or other parts? I'm just trying to imagine how exactly this coding works. I guess I could always switch it back.
