Just picked up a 2007 GTI with DSG, Sunroof and a boost gauge. I had it up on a lift to get a quote on a custom exhaust and noticed the Vogtland springs? But figured there OE since it is German. I had some on my SN95 Mustang GT so easy to spot. Was able to call the dealer who serviced this car and had them fax me over the service logs OMG....19pgs!

VW seems to nickle and dime their customers! The good: timing belt, water pump, tensioner and pulley replaced at 105K and normal oil changes seems consistent since purchase. The Bad: DSG trans not serviced or none listed; dealer recommended Camshaft cam follower replaced for check engine? WT? I purchased but no check engine? huh?

Recalls closed and completed: ignition coils, headlamp, front seat side impact wiring.
Recalls open: IMRC motor, ECM/TCM update, PCV Valve.....
Also, previous owner had VW replace the cluster, radio

Hi guys, been here since September. Got this 09 GTI while I was looking for an MK4 R32. Much happier with this verus the older gen. I used to have an 01 Jetta Wolfsburg, which I let go to keep my swapped Honda Crx. Long story short, I love this car and it works for my family. The only mods so far are a drop-in filter and PCV bypass. Removed the 11% tint after I was pulled over. Crx is moving on to my nephew.

Hello, all. I'm Adam from Huntsville, Alabama, and I bought my 2009 White DSG GTI yesterday. I've been lurking for a bit - this forum has been very helpful in figuring out what year to get and what mods to plan for.

R32 ownver checking in


I've had the car for about 6months,# 3725. Purchased it with 16k mi on the clock. on the west coast of FL. traded in my nogaro blue B6 S4 for it. it's my first "auto" and I've really gotten used to it, and kinda like it. It's on ST coilover suspension..so pics!
oh and the oem nav mfd2 sucks big time!



The S4.. basically i traded it in because i wanted something newer and better on MPG and the r32 always intrigued me, both MK versions.


before all that was my 09 370Z that i bought brand new and modified with just about every NA mod possible
then Wifey and I started a family, twin girls who are currently 14months old. I traded in the Z (back to stock) for the S4 about a month before the girls were born. Anyway that's a long story short!

I just copied and pasted from another forum so some people will probably recognize my thread. I also purchased a running and very drivable MK2 84 scirocco yesterday for $1k. but i have plans for it and won't be driving it anytime soon.

Guess I'll be introducing and then saying my goodbyes.



It's been fun, GTI, but 38 psi and 18" low profile wheels have resulted in some flat tires in some less than ideal parts of New Jersey. I went from 6 speed turbo bliss to naturally aspirated CVT..

You can't even properly party in WY, there aren't enough people in the whole state.

Nope. Just drove straight through on I80. Stopped for fuel in Rock Springs just shy of the UT border.
