Had my "U" DRL go out as well. The ballast was the issue. I'll have to dig around and find the one I ordered. Dealer said the same thing about replacing the assembly (think I was quoted 1k?) Bought the ballast on eBay for 50 dollars. No problems since then.

Edit: 4G0907697G was the number I used to search it on ebay

157k on my '15. Had the DRL issue as above, and the master window switch on the drivers door broke, replaced that with a used one for ~8 dollars. Otherwise routine maintenance.

Am I crazy or do the Factory Installed brake pads last forever??? Did my 80K service a while ago and they looked fine -looked like they had plenty of life left.

Front - yes.
Rear - not so much (not terrible, but not nearly as much life as I see remaining on the fronts; sample size of three Mk7s).

Turned over 85k today..... as far as that one that had 367k, I'm gonna guess it was an escort car for oversize trucks or something along those lines...

Sitting on 152K miles. Replaced main water pump along w/ one aux pump w/in the last 30K. Ruptured fuel filter canister early on (<40K miles) but no issues with the replacement. Failed head unit for the stereo early on as well, but likewise no problems w/ the replacement. Lately the EGR has been throwing codes that sometimes trip the CEL and now my mechanic (private/independent) tells me the turbo has been running low boost pressures.
