    Turbo Inlet Question

    When folks do the EGR Cooler Delete, they usually put a rubber plug in the hole with a nut on the face that compresses / tightens the plug in the hole.

    Another squashed oil filter thread

    I have performed 4 oil changes on my JSW. Change at the recommended 10K interval. Always use the VW filter and the VW oil. I buy the oil change kit from ECS Tuninig. My filter has never come out of the vehicle looking like that.

    Poor AC Diagnosis Help VCDS

    Please keep us posted on whether changing out the RCV helps. My JSW does the same thing. Below 90F, seems to keep the car cool. Abover 90F, just does not keep up.

    Massive problems with my 14 SportWagen

    2014 JSW TDi - Headlight Upgrade (Osram LEDriving XENARC for VW Golf VI)

    FXF, Glad to hear that you are enjoying your OSRAMs. Interesting about the lack of parking light. My only concern would be around passing the annual state inspection. Any issues? Wondering about wiring up the DRLs to act as parking lights as a work around for inspections? Thoughts?

    2014 JSW TDi - Headlight Upgrade (Osram LEDriving XENARC for VW Golf VI)

    Totally agree - I love these JSWs, but the headlight output is reminiscent of sealed beams from the 1970's. I thought I was being a little too critical until my wife commented one night while driving home how horribly they light up the road. After that, bingo, these lights suck. I need to...
