    Cheap Tool PRIMES MK7 FUEL SYSTEM [solution]!

    I don’t know anything about mk6, but this tool is obdII with special VW features. I’m assuming it will do everything you need, but you can certainly buy and return it. I would contact the company via their site to make sure you get the most up to date software.

    Cheap Tool PRIMES MK7 FUEL SYSTEM [solution]!

    That makes sense. For me $80 was well worth it for a tool that can do everything I need, and maybe work for all other modern vehicles down the road. It can live in my car, and I don’t want the added expense of buying something that runs Windows.

    Cheap Tool PRIMES MK7 FUEL SYSTEM [solution]!

    I finally found a solution! After trying a few of the tools I've seen recommended without success, I am very happy to report that the AUTOPHIX 7610 (bought on Amazon a week ago) is cheap and (among many other functions) it does the one most important thing I needed (and that many of you seem to...

    Anyone else happy with dieselgate?

    Happy 2015 Golf Sportwagen TDI S MT Purchased new 30 days before scandal announcement. I have one of the best <$30k cars ever made. I got 1/3 of the total price refunded. Now I have 50,000 miles on the car, and I would still choose it over any other. It is cleaner and less trouble for the...

    Appointment set for my 2.0L TDI Engine (GEN 3) Emissions Control Software - Stg 1 Mod

    Got my 2015 GSW M6 done a week ago. I DO notice slightly less turbo lag off the line. Mine seemed to go into regen at some point daily, regardless of miles driven, for the first 3 or 4 days. I believe I had plenty of time on the road for the cycle to complete, so maybe this is a difference...

    It's (semi) Official. 2015 owners get the shaft

    I don't think you are deliberately being sarcastic, but that's like saying, "What do you mean you don't know how old you'll be when you die? That's an easy one, just take the year you were born and subtract it from the year you're going to die. The result should be pretty accurate." I meant...

    It's (semi) Official. 2015 owners get the shaft

    I plan to shut up now, but you are making very good, clear points here. I agree that it's difficult to imagine a just reason why the 2015 values would be calculated differently. They may be the easiest to fix, and I can understand why VW would ideally want ALL compliant vehicles to remain on...

    It's (semi) Official. 2015 owners get the shaft

    I think people are viewing this situation in very different ways. Some seem to be emotional and feel let down by VW. I feel like I got the car I wanted. I agree with you that for all practical purposes, hopefully the only difference down the road will be $7000 in my pocket. The emissions...

    It's (semi) Official. 2015 owners get the shaft

    For the record, I certainly don't disagree with your concerns about the buyback calculations. I guess in my meandering rant I neglected to mention that I personally think the buyback offer is not that bad for 2015s, but relative to past model offers it's not the jackpot that some people...

    It's (semi) Official. 2015 owners get the shaft

    Hi, I'm new here. I bought a 2015 SW TDI S less than a month before the "scandal" was announced. I agree with some of the latest posters in this thread. I DEFINITELY PLAN TO KEEP MY CAR. I've test-driven all the so-called peers of the current Golf. Some are cool cars, but in my opinion...
