Just had the throttle response mod done yesterday and I can already feel the difference when driving on the freeway. Sooo much more enjoyable to drive! Not the manual transmission experience, but much better than factory settings. ����
Just had phase 2 done
Just picked my car up from the dealer after having phase 2 done. Dropped it off at 1pm. yesterday and it was ready for pickup at 2:30pm. today. Car has just under 47k on it and my paperwork indicates it had kit A and kit B installed. Confirmed by service advisor. Haven't...
I joined in '03 after buying my '01 Jetta and haven't looked back since!
I love the information and the camaraderie the club provides. ?
I guess I'm a diehard since I just purchased a '15 GSW CPO back in December.??
Thanks for hosting this, Aaron!
It was so fun meeting new folks and drooling over all of the cars.
I may be creating a monster by bringing my 16 yr. old to these things but we need fresh blood in the tdi family, right?
Can't wait for next year-??
And awesome job raising over $400 for a local...
Yep it was the top right corner above the hatch.
I guess I'm just old school, I didn't know the current nomenclature for the "R Series".
The service advisor got a giggle out of a 50-something broad asking about it though... :-)
Ran the GSW through the carwash and watched in horror in the rearview mirror as water poured in through the hatchback/window.
Took it in to the dealer I purchased it from and told them I thought it was a window seal because the hatch seal looked intact and oh by the way the trim around the...
My paperwork includes a copy of the "Certified Vehicle Inspection and Condition Report" with 112 lines of inspection.
#79 Battery/Charging System:Operational/Condition/Load Test/ No Corrosion
#82 Electrical System/Wires:Operational/Condition/Free of Corrosion/No Damage
If it is a CPO, you...
I just got the letter from VWoA which details the 2yr./ unlimited mileage on my CPO car purchased in December. It states "a precondition of which is the completion of a government-approved emissions modification on the vehicle."
I take this to mean that if I don't complete...
Although I can see the need for the misfuel guard for some I can also see the value in removing it.
In my state, you can't pump your own gas but can pump your own diesel if the station allows it.
My husband has had 2 misfueling incidents in his tdis because the attendant wasn't paying attention...
I had no expectation of the salesman knowing anything about the engine so I didn't even ask. He just showed me all the storage options and how to flip the back seats down. And a tiny bit about operating the dsg because I asked him specifically.
I figured I would get any information I needed by...
I haven't tried it in the real world but I was told to pop the cover off the door handle to reveal the key slot to unlock the door.
Not sure about the transponder being able to activate the keyless start if it can't activate the door lock.
My biggest suspicion/fear about the keyless start by the...
And my mpgs suck!
I'm driving much more conservatively than normal and can't get over 32 mpgs.
Jetta consistently got over 40 with my lead foot and biodiesel.
And last road trip I got 47 mpgs running B99, 3 adults and luggage, averaging 75-80 mph on I-5 from Portland to Medford.
Please tell me I...
Playing around a bit
So I've been doing more experimenting and have found that when I drive in manual mode I tend to shift at about 3500 rpms. The engine noise and pull are completely different than my 01 Jetta. Also, sometimes when the engine is cold and I start off in sport mode the engine...
