    WTB 6spd DRW Auto to Manual conversion kit.

    I got a DRW from frans (DutchAutoParts) - he has a thread in the Vendor sub-forum. Given that it's a couple hundred pounds of stuff strapped to a pallet, and arrives in a few days after order/payment....shipping seems downright cheap - like $250USD or so for the whole 6sp. swap package.

    Driver seat airbag/seatbelt blew; anchor / latch need replacing, too?

    The car did suffer a little parking lot "doink", while it was parked, to the left (same side as blown bags) rear taillight (photo below) about 10days prior. I figured the two might be related, but (a) seemed ridiculously minor, and (b) weird that it'd wait 10days to deploy.

    Driver seat airbag/seatbelt blew; anchor / latch need replacing, too?

    I had gotten the impression just from pulling various bits apart on these cars, that anything with a yellow connector was part of the airbag system. (?) In any event, I just left the seatbelt latch as it was (easy enough to remove later if need be), hooked everything back up, cleared the codes...

    Driver seat airbag/seatbelt blew; anchor / latch need replacing, too?

    Friend's car - driver seat (and side curtain) airbag blew while driving down gravel road. Got the airbags and seatbelt reel for replacement, but then noticed that the anchor (by console, where the belt clicks in) also has the yellow connector; does that need to be replaced as well if the...

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    Aren't you only supposed to rotate front-to-back on these cars? Also: pretty sure my ContiWinterContact TS830P tires are not unidirectional, only "this side out".

    Seeking 2015 Golf Sportwagen and advice!

    There's a SEL for sale by a longtime member here listed in the "Cars For Sale" section for $10,000. Helluva deal. It is a DSG, not manual, but get a DSG tune and it becomes a lot more enjoyable to drive. To me, I wouldn't get any car other than the SEL mostly because of the seats - they're just...

    Bulb out warning light

    As you were getting close to hinting at...the solution, even though the bulbs are working, might be to replace the bulbs. (?)

    What did you do to your MK7 today?

    Put the first coat of VW OEM touch-up (spray) paint on my (to be retrofitted) parking sensors....and I'm not liking the look of the paint. It seems WAY too dark - closer to "charcoal" metallic than "platinum grey" metallic. Might have to go back to VW to see if they ordered the wrong paint...

    LED headlights

    You may be conflating "6000K" (color temperature), which is a common measure with "lumens", a measure of brightness, like "candlepower". In general, 6000K makes a fine-looking DRL, but it's crap for driving, as it is close to the blue spectrum; particularly with wet roads, 6000K makes the road...
