    Unofficial MK7 Oil Change Guide

    great price @ ID Parts! If i need a big order from them I will order a few! However at this point with shipping taking 10 days across the country and the shipping costs going up, I have been more inclined to shop locally.

    Unofficial MK7 Oil Change Guide

    FYI - I just bought oil (Pentosin Super performance III 507.00) and was looking on line for a Hengst filter 03N115562B. I wanted Hengst because I have read they are more stout and don't collapse like some of the other filters. (I haven't had an issue, but many are having issues with collapsed...

    Flickering screen of death!

    typical dealer BS - they said they will look into it, and if they find it wasn't coded properly, it will be covered under the warranty, otherwise it will be $200 for the diagnostic.

    Flickering screen of death!

    10 month update on my replacement head unit: lately I have noticed a warning triangle upon start up about once a month. A restart clears it, but i never went into the Car Menu to see what was up, nor have I scanned with VCDS. Today I had a low tire pressure light come on, went to reset it...

    Audi Cross Bars fit an MK7 GSW?

    Anyone know the difference between the audi and Vw cross bars? Audi Part No: 8K9-071-151-L and VW 5G9-071-151-A They fit the Allroad from 2013-2016 I am hoping these Audi bars will fit, I am sick of the wind noise my old round yakima bars make.... Thanks, Paul

    Flickering screen of death!

    Ok, so I confirmed with the dealer that he didn't take my advice and he replaced the screen first, now he is replacing the glove box unit he referred to as the 5f. Before I took it in, I told him my research showed the screen isn't the problem, but it is the head unit in the glove box... I guess...

    Flickering screen of death!

    So as an updated, I was in doing my Phase 2 and the service writer was utterly incompetent. Eventually I had the service manager making a house call to get my car and drop off a loaner for the phase 2. After he drove my car, he said we have to something about your flickering infotainment...

    MIB1 Head Unit

    I have the same issue, of course it started at 37 months... Like it knew my warranty just ran out. From what I have read, you have to replace both the head unit and screen. It seems to be very common with the Mib1 units. Hopefully you can find a solution that doesn't include a trip to the dealer.

    0-30 507 oil okay?

    I have been running the ESP 5/30 in both my 2015 GSW and 2012 X5 35d - I like the low saps and good numbers everyone has had with it...Probably one of the best diesel oils out there. However, I recently realized the newest M1 ESP oil has dropped the BMW LL04 rating, but is still 507 compliant...

    0-30 507 oil okay?

    I had phase 2 completed yesterday, reading the work order they changed my oil and used G E55 030 1QD SP which is the new Auti/VW 0/30 weight 507 oil. Since when did the weight change from 5/30 to 0/30? And is it ok? The Manual says 5/30. FYI, search function isn't working, so don't know...

    filter housing drain plug stuck

    The Dealer stripped my drain plug too. Must have used an impact wrench on it....I never was able to get it out. I complained and they sent me a new cap with the plug. Of course they sent the wrong one. After about 10 weeks of complaining and waiting, I finally got them to send me the right...

    Flickering screen of death!

    So if I get a unit from a 2016+ golf it should fit with unlocking? Are there different screen sizes I need to worry about?

    Flickering screen of death!

    Can you help me out with the acronym? What is MIB2, also what is Carplay? That sounds like some apple software...we are all Android, no Apple products are allowed in my house for wife and kids.

    Flickering screen of death!

    So my lcd touch screen, upon starting my car this am, now has the flickering screen... I'm out of warranty, just hit 45k and 38 months of ownership. Has anyone found a solution other than a new head unit unit/screen replacement? This is on my 2015 GSW S model so not a fender unit and no nav...

    Big Brake upgrade

    I wanna do the 312mm Upgrade - Can anyone confirm the 312mm front brakes (Carriers, pads, rotors) from an Alltrack will fit on my 2015 GSW with the stock 288mm Brakes? I found some Alltrack front calipers with brackets, pads and rotors for $200. Dust shield doesn't need to be updated does it?
