    What did you do to your MkVI-A6 today?

    Yesterday I spent the last 2hr dry hours in the driveway and changed out the oil, air, fuel cabin and oil filters. It started raining right as I was wrapping up and it's been a monsoon ever since.

    What did you do to your MkVI-A6 today?

    Dropped off a pair of the winter shoes for new rubber this morning, get the kid to toss them on this weekend. Brakes are coming due. I have the pads & rotors sitting here ready to go but squeaking out every last stop I can - 145k km on the OEM binders.

    Dieselgate, The Canadian Edition

    Spoke to RP this morning and sellers are getting their cheques ahead of those of us who opted to take the "buy back". RP said it could take anywhere from 6mo to a year.

    Should I be considering the mkvi?

    I miss my MKIV everyday, especailly when I'm filling up. Sure the new MKVI has some imporvements but the IV I could still wrench on w/o so many digital interferences.

    Polar FIS pf04 pros & cons

    I miss my PolarFIS but then again I don't. I never knew any of those parameters before and really wasn't any better off once I did. More like I became a slave to the numbers, not that I really had any control over them. Fingers crossed that the Bosch cheque shows up... Hello Malone 1.5!

    Polar How many people have had trouble with it

    Reflash it. I had this several times and a fresh install seemed to fix it. It's a pain to re & re the module so when I had mine installed I left the USB data cable plugged in and had it tucked up with a velcro strap so I could just pull it down and plug it into my laptop.

    FS RCD510 North American version. Seattle area. Used. $115 shipped USA

    You can not buy a code online. Ask me how I know. It requires the car being plugged into the VW mainframe and coding comes from there. VWoC/VWoA took back the ability from dealerships just grabbing codes in 2012.

    Rear brake job. First time doing pads on the jsw

    Pad thickness for sure but once they start to vibrate you know they've warped because there's no longer enough meat on the discs to dissipate the generated heat. I'll wait until the light comes on. Usually replaced the next day or shortly there after. When I was at 3mm (late Oct when I swapped...

    Dieselgate, The Canadian Edition

    Fingers crossed? I hadn't look at the RP site in a while but I was able to log in and file my claim. Who knows, I guess we'll see! Even stranger was that I decided to purge my maintenance binder just this morning and the records for our 2010 had made it into the recycling bin. Had to go and...
