    Not a MKIV issue but posting as some of you may of had this problem

    So my command start (third party) stopped working. The reason: I put an LED tailight bulb in my 2004 Jetta wagon. I'm guessing with it doesn't draw enough current to satisfy the remote start or it causes a transient power leak of some sort that the command start doesn't like. Only my driver...

    Yeah when you burn wood to heat your house in Manitoba and your buddy says he has free wood and your truck is down. The Jetta gets abused... Spruce scented though, worth it.

    Site with pictures of Factory rims?

    I saw a super nice Golf Sportwagon TDI (2015 probably didn't get a good look but definitely a newer model) But it had nice rims (guessing 17's) with blacked out spokes except for a very think polished sliver on each spoke . VW center caps. I've been searching all day to find those rims but...

    2004 Jetta wagon axles

    I have a 2004 BEW / Tiptronic combo in my 04. Can I use axles from other years/tranmissions? Reason is they seem way cheaper to repair then mine. I'm pretty sure I have a bad inner CV joint and the rebuild kit is ~500$(CAD ~(320$ US) Not sure I can get away with just cleaning/greasing since...
