    3 car seats in the back of a MK7.5 (2018) GTI...how

    Tried that but it somehow fits worse. At least when its in teh middle the 3 seats "nest", the problem is the horns/arms of the (former) boosters block access to the seat belt plugs.

    3 car seats in the back of a MK7.5 (2018) GTI...how

    Got a set of narrower boosters that actually might work as per test fit. I'll report back in a few weeks... To quote my wife "Why is somebody who says that on an enthusiast's forum?!" (She's pregnant and angry)

    3 car seats in the back of a MK7.5 (2018) GTI...how

    No, I'm not buying a minivan. We're trying to figure out our options for my 3 children in the back of my wife's GTI (7/5/infant). The 7 and 5 year old are now both in boosters, but with the width needed for the baby's larger drop-in seat "cradle" its really hard to actually buckle in the...

    Euro MKV taillamp bulb holders (pair for both sides) - Amber blinkers - $40 OBO

    For sale is a pair of Euro bulb holders for a project I never got around to. If you want to enable amber blinkers in a North American car, this is the hardware you'd need, then you'd use VAG-com/OBDeleven to enable/code it. Basically its the "back" of the taillamp where the bulbs attach, the...

    Suspension refresh - looking for reccos

    '08 MKV GTI with 90K, the struts are tired. Springs seem fine. This is my wife's DD (no track) but she's a "spirited" driver. I was thinking shocks for the 4 corners and the soft bits (bushings, etc). Not looking to build a racecar or spend a ton, just wake it up a bit...

    Another reflector vs projector question (h11 vs 9006)

    My wife's 2008 GTI shattered a fog lamp housing lens on the road. I figured I might as well switch over to projectors as the entire housing (+bulb) is now shot anyway. Here's where I'm confused. The existing housings look like the attachment (reflectors), but the bulbs they use (and always have...

    2 Door latch/actuators out of a 2008 GTI (4-door)

    Central locking woes - why such a disparity in pricing for actuators?

    2008 GTI is having some central locking issues, I suspect its the actuator failing. I'm looking around at the usual suspects for the part and see a wide disparity in prices. VW/Audi genuine can be from $99 (wrong side, but still) to $384, dorman ones usually around $120-160. Any recommendations...
