    Switching Ipod cord with USB?

    As a hater of all things Apple including their business philosophy, I would like to re purpose that weird proprietary pin dock to charge one of our android phones. You know that thing called USB that everyone adopted besides Apple. :) Is there anyways to use that port for anything else?

    Coming up on our first oil change service at 10k. Are there any additional things I should ask about as far as recalls or software updates? Should we confirm they are using the right kind of oil and filter for the new 2015 tdi. Are they well versed now with the ea288?

    Driver door hard to close and Oil level.

    Well besides a few cosmetic things we are loving the new golf TDI. We did notice the driver door needs to almost be slammed to close. Has anyone else noticed this?

    HID Conversion for 2015 Golf

    What sort of wizardry would be required to swap in some GTI HID headlights or the regular golf xenon headlights into our 2015 TDI that does not have them already?

    Deciding between SE and SEL TDI Golf

    So as some might have seen here: We will no longer have our 06 TDI and my wife has been itching for a Golf. VW's site is too iPhone like and I can't get some of the hard facts or see the differences between the trims SE and SEL. So basically...
