    Bluetooth drops calls

    I'm having trouble with Bluetooth dropping calls. If I catch it in time, I can turn off the Bluetooth on my phone and continue the call on the phone. Definitely an issue with the car Bluetooth and not the phone. Any ideas? It seems more prevalent in the afternoon after the car has been sitting...

    Is there a Adblue bypass kit?

    I'm in Westminster and I'm curious about your tune as well. I'm definitely going to do the delete in the future.

    Code P240F

    Update: On 30 October, Mark at Malone sent me an updated tune for my Passat. Been running the new tune for almost 30 days and no CEL issues. I am pleased.

    Code P240F

    CEL lit twice now. I have been able to clear the code each time. Looks it's an EGR issue. Guess it's time to remove the Malone tune and take it to the dealer.

    Recommend a dealer in MD for emissions fix

    Do not use Heritage VW in Owings Mills. I was very displeased with the service department. I had good luck with Fitzgerald VW in Annapolis.

    Fair Price For a CPO 2015 Passat TDI SEL

    I shopped for over a month for mine, but I was very picky. Had to be blue exterior/black interior. Every dealer I talked to had wiggle room, but the MD dealers were predominately higher than the surrounding states. Northern VA had some great prices, but not the exact car I wanted. I finally...

    The Future of the TDI?

    My no longer available VW Passat TDI will always be worth more than a no longer available late model Ford sedan LOL.

    2015 Gen 3 Fix Phase 2 - First Impressions

    I only did the engine tune and I am very pleased. Power and torque are great, mileage not so much. I'm only getting 34 MPG so far, but I also drive very fast. I want to do the DSG tune too, but not sure how easy that will be to hide if I need warranty work. But I love the engine tune. It's...

    2015 Gen 3 Fix Phase 2 - First Impressions

    You have perfectly described the performance I was experiencing! Mine is a CPO 2015 Passat TDI DSG. Purchased in June 2018 with 35,xxx miles on the odometer. My local dealer says Phase 1 & 2 are done, but the under hood decal and VW website state the contrary. I said screw it and put a Malone...

    New tune on the way.

    Had the tune on mine for ten days now and two fill-ups. Absolutely love having the power and torque back. Very pleased with the tune. Still not 100% happy with the DSG though. Mine seems to be either no downshift or wham, double downshift. I may need to look into the DSG tune. Regardless...

    2015 Gen 3 Fix Phase 2

    That's good to hear. I have the tuner, but the wife has the car at the Outer Banks all week. Looking forward to getting started.

    2015 Gen 3 Fix Phase 2

    Things I know to be true: - I had a 2014 Passat SEL TDI DSG - I loved it - I averaged 37-40 MPG hand calculated - I drive fast, hence the below average mileage - My daily commute is 195 miles round trip - I sold it back in Jan 2018 - I have a 2015 Passat SEL TDI DSG - I purchased it 18 Jun...
