    MK4 owners, I need some measurements

    Those of you that still have a mk4, and the ability to measure something small, care to help out? I need the measurements of the blank dash buttons. I also need the hole measured. Metric units preferred. Button in question

    Vag-com in Southeast NB

    I'm still here, not often, but here. I have VCDS CAN and Hex and general OBD2 tools as well. Anyone can shoot me a message if they're in or around Hampton NB.

    No. It started with the mkv series.

    Why idling is bad

    If manufactures created engines that have issues while idling; wouldn't they know this? Why wouldn't they reduce coolant capacity and coolant passages to increase the overall idle temperature. Yeah, I'm a prove it it guy. Just like every other adult with a half functioning brain.

    Chassis Braces

    Well it's a hell of a better place to start than...strut braces.

    Is it just me

    To me it's not just better looking, but when I went to the mk6, I lost a few things. Trunk now has massive hinges, how is this an improvement? No more hood piston, wth? Seats are not as wide/comfy. I'm a skinny guy too. Plastic, so rigid. At least it's not crappy "soft-touch" I guess Manual...

    Block heater on the 2015 TDI

    My mk6 heater clocked in at 689W. I think they're the same in the mk7.

    Coolant Heater Alternatives

    I had a battery blanket, and a 1kW Zerostart in my mkiv. Started like it was a warm summer day.

    Why idling is bad

    I cannot believe that a car manufacturer would design an engine that would eat itself while idling, it defies all logic and sense.

    Question for my Canadian peeps:

    Those cords are around $160 a pop. You can find a regular outlet with a flap, others on here have added it with little issue.

    Chassis Braces

    Creaks over bumps means the sway bar bushings need to be replaced.

    Ignition? Slow to turn over

    Could be the starter itself. Before I sold my mkiv I installed a new starter. It was very slow to turn over anything below 0C. After the replacement, it was very fast to start.

    VW at CES 2015

    Meh, it'll probably be a flop. Look at all the Bluetooth BS VW went through. Then the crap RCD310, RNS315 and 510s. Lets not even mention the craptastic MDI system. Someday VW might get it that a USB port would be a good idea.

    safe to purchase from IDParts?

    Do you shop at Target, Home Depot, Dairy Queen, Starbucks, K-Mart, P.F Changs? How about use Google, eBay, Yahoo? All of those were hacked in 2014. Nothing is safe online.

    dang silverstars tricked me again

    The common thought is that OSRAM Silverstars differ than Sylvania Silverstars. I have no idea why people think this, every time I Google it I get "I think", "I assume", types of answers.

    Anyone install a back-up camera to rearview mirror?

    They lack SiriusXM. I have zero 1st hand experience with them, but others have had mild success. Since my '14 has the Non-SiriusXM RCD310, I'd still consider one.
