I came across this while searching for DSG Mechatonics units on ebay.
It's $499CDN. You ship them your tank or if you want to pay for cheaper shipping, you just ship the heater assembly.
Just to compare, my dealer...
I have been looking off/on for a hitch for our 2013 passat. I didn't like the curt hitch since it hangs off the bumper rebar.
I found the ecohitch http://torkliftcentral.com/2015-volkswagen-passat-ecohitch . It mounts to the body "frame" holes and then you mount the bumper rebar on top of it...

I was noticing a musty smell in the car after it rained. The carpets in the car were not wet.
I opened the sunroof and stuck my nose into the driver side front drain hole and sure enough there was the smell.
I would have thought that the sunroof would have had a seal between the interior and...
I'm looking for an alternative to the VW coolant heater cord.
I damaged it last year and today I destroyed the cord.
Dealer wants to $148 for a replacement.
Since i didn't learn my lesson the first time, I will probably destroy/damage that one too or the plug in the bumper.
Brought our 2013 in for it's 1st service today.
I was told that there is a TSB for the coolant. I'll get the number later when I pickup the car.
A couple of weeks ago, I tested the coolant because I had to add some before a 4K road trip. It was rated for -22C.
Apparently it will be corrected...
I recently completed a 3600KM roadtrip and noticed some soot on the body of the car.
It was raining for atleast 8 hours of driving.
I used the torque app and noticed at least 3 regens.
Anyone else notice any soot build up? How should I clean it?
Got my car back from a front end collision.
The grill air intake was damaged and was replaced.
I was looking at the intake and it looks rather interesting.
Air seems to come from the top of the front grill AND also from the engine bay.
There is also an arrow pointing to a hole in the intake...

Looks like the dealer will not have it unless they have an aggreement with Continental.
If Peter does a group buy I'm in BUT at $189 i'm not.
Please see the...
Do you have crystals on your amp under the drivers seat?
I don't think it's DEF since the stainless screw seem immune to the crystals.
I checked the trunk and there are no crystals there.
The crystals seem to be on the amp mounting plate only.

It was -24.5C/-12.1F this morning. I wasn't able to plug in the car. So it sat for 12hrs in the cold.
The airport was reporting the same temperature. It was -35 with the windchill(which doesn't mater for cars).
Some have asked for startup video in the cold.
Here you go...
