    Shifter side-to-side piece stuck

    Hi. The side-to-side lever on top of the shifter tower is stuck. Not like it's not moving, but there's not enough room for me to get the piece out. Any advice?

    Low-and-soft

    The objective here is to have a setup that is at least 0.75" lower than stock (2007) and can soak up the smaller bumps well. I am willing to give up a bit of handling for the mild drop and soft ride. Is Koni yellows and Eibach springs the way to go? I don't want to do stock height and DG...

    How much worse is your winter MPG?

    I don't think it's the thermostat. I do keep an eye on the coolant temp gauge. It hits quarter of the way up by the time I get to my highway on-ramp and midpoint a few minutes thereafter, as it had always done. The 3 fuel-ups where it was mostly 2+ hours on the highway were 28 MPG or so, so I...

    How much worse is your winter MPG?

    I'm trying to see how much of a drop is to be expected in the colder months. I live in Los Angeles where it hardly ever drops below 50 Fahrenheit, but noticing a significant drop. (2007 FSI, 6MT, United Motorsports stage 1 tune) From June (when I got tuned) to end of November, I was getting...

    My GF doesn't coast while driving

    I've been telling her, if she can read their license plate clearly, then you are too close. It's getting a little better. Before, I could read the month and year of registration!

    My GF doesn't coast while driving

    The driver that makes me the most nauseous would be my father. He coasts, but when he's on either brakes he's stomping on 'em. Which is weird, because he used to drive my brother's old Impreza whose throttle pedal went from zero to 100 if you didn't get on it with the grace of a ballerina. I...

    My GF doesn't coast while driving

    I try not to be a couch quarterback when someone else is driving. I'm not the perfect driver and neither is anyone else I've met. However, for all the faults I've seen while driving, this one drives me up the wall the most. My GF, when driving, does not coast. She is either on the gas or the...

    FSI 4 door 6MT w/ sunroof stock FTG?

    As title states, I am looking for FTG measurements for front and rear of a FSI GTI with manual transmission and sunroof. I have a lowered setup and trying to find out how much of a drop I have already. I am considering the Bilstein Touring B4 with the H&R OE Sport springs. Thank you

    Did you upgrade any of your other mounts?

    stage 2 dogbone choice?

    I'd probably start with one of those polyurethane inserts and see if that helps. I have the stock pendulum module (the metal bits) but have the orange HPA puck.

    Anyone switch between stage 1 tunes?

    Hi. I have a UM Stage 1 tune, and I can't tell if it's me getting used to the tune or if it's not a good tune overall. Even from the first week I had it, it just felt like the boost sensor was remapped to hit higher peak PSI and not much else. I was hoping for something that made the feel...

    2007 FSI vs 2012 Golf R intercooler piping

    The stock intercooler is inadequate for Socal + stage 1 tune. There is definitely a difference in how the engine feels at the beginning vs end of my commute if I take surface streets. I heard different stories on people who have had the Golf R/S3 intercooler. I know it won't give me peak gains...

    2007 FSI vs 2012 Golf R intercooler piping

    I have a 2007 FSI GTI and there's a local seller for a Golf R intercooler but without pipes. Would it work, or do I need to shop around for other parts?

    FS/FT: 2007 GTI (UG 4 doors 3 pedals)

    Touchy first gear after stage 1 reflash

    Hi. I just got the United Motorsports Stage 1 Tune and have a slight bone to pick. In first gear, I cannot get off the throttle pedal without having the whole car buck a little bit. The closest sensation I can describe is if you accidentally disengage the clutch a little but and then release...

    J388/J389 no signal

    I'm having 'no signal' error to the passenger side doors (both front and rear) and haven't been able to find any online sources on how to fix this. The VAGCOM coding is the same as before (FYI this happened after a body repair that took a while. The battery drained to death and not sure why the...
