    Suspension Upgrade by using VW Parts for my JSW

    All suspension on my JSW is stock, with the exception of the bigger GTI rear anti-sway bar. I prefer "coffee cup" friendly over wilder. Your mileage may vary.

    Suspension Upgrade by using VW Parts for my JSW

    I chose the simplest and cheapest rear suspension mod, that of installing the GTI 22 mm (anti) sway bar. Recommended.

    Mk6 gti RSB for JSW?

    I have no knowledge about the effect of lift and stiffer springs, as mine are stock. However, on my '14 JSW, TDI, MT6, I swapped the factory RSB (18 mm dia.) for a GTI bar (22 mm dia.) and that makes a noticeable difference to me (its a very easy swap!). The car definitely plows less, as the...

    2014 JSW TDI 6MT Timing Belt Interval

    Car has 122k miles and VW info suggests change timing belt at 130k. My trusted local shop is concerned about going that long. Any advice?

    Adding GPS to RCD510... the hard way

    I seem to recall that some company made a PC board to convert an RCD510 to add GPS. The board took the place of the CD changer, and required surgery to get it done. I suspect what you are asking is not practical.

    Radio Upgrade suggestions

    Vincej: My '14 JSW, TDI, MT6 (no roof), came with RCD-510, and now has a late model RNS-510 (SSD). The RNS-510 has a lousy user interface and is slow, however I like having two nav units (RNS-510 & smartphone) running at the same time. I usually keep the RNS zoomed out so I can see the "big...

    Crusty: How about shipping to 35801? To be honest, I've got another one I'm chasing, but the conversation has been slow. Please advise.

    Back seat window deflector

    My take is that the car with a single window down a bit is like a whistle. By opening another window a bit (or the sunroof, if you have one) you change the tuning on the whistle. Ever blow across the top of a soda (or beer) bottle? It make a crude whistle.

    Weathertech Window Deflector Problem

    I had a similar problem on the '14 JSW (auto reversing of driver window during the final half inch closing). But only sometimes. then it got to be every time, so I removed the driver Weathertech rain guard-the one I used most. Sigh. Much pondering and procrastination followed, and every time...

    '14 JSW, TDI, MT6 (post fix) DPF replaced at 85K miles, extended warranty

    Recently the "glowplug" error light came on while on the interstate. I pulled off at an exit, shut it down and got out the owners manual. Seems the glowplug light also means engine controller problems. Restart, and the light is off, for another 100 miles or so. Next the glowplug light and...
