    Is the VW MAF really that fragile?

    Ok, I'll risk getting flamed but I'm going to start another K&N filter thread because all the searches hit this site and everyone talks about how it destroys the MAF.

    Is this not available with kessy? I tried both settings in vcds and it works the same way. Regardless of the setting unlock occurs when one of the front doors is open. On my other dubs without kessy I can program to unlock when the ignition is off/key removed.

    What MFD changes with an aftermarket radio?

    Which bluetooth device to pair?

    I just tried to pair my phone with my new 2013 JSW. It listed 4 devices while the car was on as VW Phone VW Phone PLXDevice-xxxxx xx:xx:xx:xx:xx Seemed odd to see all these listed from my car. Especially the PLXDevice as I thought that was an OBD bluetooth adapter. Does that mean my car has...

    2013 gets lower mileage?

    My wife is thinking of trading her car in for a JSW after seeing the mileage of 40+ I'm getting in my NCS. Doing a little shopping we noticed the 2012 show 42 highway and the 2013 is only shown to be 39. Is this just a mistake or has something changed?

    Sunroof doesn't close

    Wondering if this is a common problem or if there is something I need to re-sync if you use the comfort close feature. Essentially I open the sunroof, not tilt. When I go to close it gets about 1/2 way then it "bumps" and starts to open again. I do have the comfort feature enabled and used it a...
