    Broken stage 1 FSI vs Tuned Focus ST

    Back a few months ago this guy was talking up his 2015 Focus ST with a Cobb tune. I was getting annoyed. However at the time my car had a bad turbo, an exhaust leak, a bad diverter valve, and two boost leaks(no codes though, go figure). But a stage 1 tune. So most likely I was just hitting...

    Bad N75 or Turbo or DV?

    My apologies all. I’m active on vortex. Not on Mk5 forums here because over a couple posts it just doesn’t seem like this is as active. Anyways, to follow up. I had replaced N75.

    Can I make the footwell lights stay on all the time?

    I have Vag Com and can't see anything if I can have the footwell lighting on my GTI come on at night time when the lights are on and I'm driving. They only come on when I open a door. I know the Tiguan which is on the same A5 platform has this feature enabled to be on while driving. I'd love it...
