    OBD port

    Has anyone ever had problems getting the OBD port to recognize the device you are plugging in to it? Recently bought a P3 digital vent gauge and it has only powered on once since installing it which itself took several plug/unplug attempts. However the next time the car was started, the device...

    How to know if my APR tune was erased by dealer?

    Yeah, that is my dumb question... If the tune was erased, controlling the tune through the cruise controls would not be working at all, yes? Had my car in yesterday for 80k service, they performed the recall on the PCV and replaced a faulty fuel pressure sensor. Put it in stock mode and...

    60' time

    What is a good 60' time for a stage 1 GTI? Was doing some runs while using Dynolicious today and averaged 2.8 seconds. Hard not to spin off the line. Although the worn Conti all seasons are most likely to blame.

    Does not start on first try

    Recently my 2008 GTI has not been starting on the first try in the morning – I would say it's probably about 60/40 that it starts on first try. The rest of the day the car will start up on first try however. Sometimes after starting up on the second try, the idle is slightly rough for a while...

    Climatic adjustments are poor or is it me?

    The climate controls in my '08 GTI seem to be limited to either hot or cold. Is this normal or is something wrong? There is little variation, it's one extreme or the other. For example, setting the temp dial in the coldest setting is the same as having it half way between cold and hot (or so it...

    Air Filter - is this installed correctly?

    So I took on the grueling task of replacing the air filter in my 2008 GTI yesterday. I notice that the air filter is not fully enclosed in the engine cover. The filter element is not exposed per se, but the orange lip, see photo, that goes around the filter is. Did I install this incorrectly...

    How often do you change your oil?

    Having not owned a car that uses synthetic oil before, it makes me a bit nervous to let it go so long between oil changes. Been getting it changed every 5k even though the owners manual states that the oil change should be done every 10k. Am I wasting my money? What mileage intervals does...
