    Disabling DRLs

    Getting an euro switch, and editing the bit out with VCDS will get them disabled. I did it a while back and it took longer to boot the computer than disable. You can disable the seat-belt chime while you are at it (yes I wear my seat-belt).

    Ontario Goverment's Plan for TDIs

    I follow the fastest cars but usually leave enough space so the speedy driver doesn't want to let me go ahead. I find the the speedy ones are more courteous and will think you want to go even faster so will move over... (at least I do). If I do 140 and someone wants to go faster why not... who...

    Fun little quirk?

    As mentioned it goes to recirculate function when reversing. Another fun fact is that when you spray your windshield it does the same thing. Bot to prevent the smell from entering the cabin. Cheers, RS

    tire recommendations for MkIV TDI Sport

    Just one word on Falken tire. I had the Falken FK-452 225/40ZR18 XL (92Y) and they were the most oval un-balance-able tires I have ever had. They had been hunter balanced and still were bad. I might have just had really really bad luck.

    Continental Extreme Contact DW or DWS had both and was very happy. I have the DW now and they really are grippy.

    Mileage in this cold weather

    2006 Jetta here --- City driving is pretty bad on fuel economy (wide range between 6.5 and 8.2 depending on distance and temperature) with the car struggling to keep temps up. Highway speeds no issues keeping it between 5.5 - 5.8.

    Bigger turbo, dyno results 06 Jetta TDI

    The stock injectors flow very little. BEW injectors with nozzles or the PD150 injectors would be a good choice for the BRM engine.

    warm up after starting

    I can attest for sure that driving is the quickest way to warm up. I also have the high idle tune from Malone, but I don't idle the car, I just drive it. Take it easy when its bloody cold also. I only go up to a max of 2300 RPM when cold.

    Bigger turbo, dyno results 06 Jetta TDI

    Hey 1998993C2S, The turbo started life as the PD105, but I had asked my vendor to put on the 52mm compressor wheel vs the 49mm. I also have the electronic connector on top of the VNT adjuster. Cheers, Raz

    What snow tires do you guys use?

    I actually prefer to travel before the plows. I find my grip is better when there is something for the tires to bite one. Sometimes after the plows, its super slick depending on the outside temperature.

    Stuck on my street again snow - All Season Tires, winter tires?

    I run winter and summer tires. Sets are on different rims making swaps easy between season. Seeing as I'm Toronto winter/summer combo works quite well as we don't really have a spring / autumn. Winter --- General Altimax Summer --- Conti ExtremeContact DW

    A question about my 06 Jetta

    Yes 100% on the AUX electric heater (checked via vcds). I had the econ button pressed all the time when I first got my car and thought I had a faulty heater. Button off heater on... and yes it turns off the AC too :)

    Bigger turbo, dyno results 06 Jetta TDI

    I have the 1752 turbo so just a tad bigger compressor wheel. I haven't gone to a dyno yet, but Mark said the injectors are at full duty. I also don't smoke.
