    Why is my MPG better since phase 2 recall

    I am now more then 3 months since my phase 2 recall has been completed in June and I expected more restrictive exhaust and lower mpg results per tank. My previous Fuelly results kept me squarely in the low to mid 42 per tank range. After having my 2015 Golf SE TDI DSG with 38k miles phase 2...

    Modified MPG Best of All CR's ?

    Just completed my first tank with my new 2015 Golf TDI SE with DSG and it out performs any avg tank I have had out of my 4 Common Rail TDI's. I understand there are many more tanks needed to get a more accurate look but with that being said my best avg tank EVER, other then a one outlier on my...

    VA Consumer Protection - Need Advise

    As some know I have replaced my TDI on 12/31/16, with a 2014 Jetta GLI. I flew into VA and was picked up by the dealer. When I got home I put it up on a lift to check the exhaust because it didn't sound right. The previous owner had straight piped back from the cat and removed the resonator...

    So what does the auditor actually do?

    So I was excited to see my 2013 Golf verified. I had some stress on whether VW would buy it back. (Salvaged Title) A lot of relieve to see those green check marks. Now I look forward to seeing my Golf pass the last phase and receive an offer. From what I have gathered the first step is...

    Can it be done? I have several TDI's that will be turned in this Nov. One is a 2015 Golf TDI with lighting package. I travel 30 miles at each night through poorly lit country roads and think VW halogen are poor at best. On the other hand I love the Bi-Xenons. I have decided I will purchase a...

    If I can't have a VW TDI - I'm going full electric

    I went from a TDI to a gasser for 5 years (including my 16 GTI) then back to a TDI. I won't do that again. Once you get use to all that lovely low end torque and 500 mile or better per tank, a gasser eats at you over time. I see electric as the closest thing to aligning with what I like about...

    MK6 vs MK7 Steering Wheel

    So is it just me or is the MK7 steering wheel in the GTI and TDi highly uncomfortible compared to the MK6? To me the 6 is fatter and rounder and easy to hold. The MK7 in my TDI and GTI is thinner and has a pressure point on it since it is not round and has a ridge that runs on the front of the...
