Handed her over to my trusted shop for a Timing Belt and Water Pump. DV+ and new door harness will be done DIY as soon as I get her back.

What's up with your door? Is that just the light?

Nvm guys, we pulled the aftermarket radio and hooked up vagcom without even installing my stock radio in and it worked like a charm.

Lesson learned, if you have an aftermarket radio don't expect vagcom to let you access "09- Cent. Elect." Lol

Simply remove the radio, and using the key fob lock and then unlock the car. You should be in business like I was :)

So, first I apologize if the pics are huge. I've never posted images using the Tapatalk app before.

Swapped my cam follower yesterday. This is after about 25k miles. After 8 years of ownership, I finally broke a clip on a connector. Then proceeded to zip tie the hell out of it. Scarring on my cam lobe seems to be remaining constant and hasn't gotten any worse. Also found some nice oil pooling in my PCV hose. May need to look into a plate to block it off.

As long as it's not Admiral Airbags, that's cool.

I had a motor mount break, which dropped the running engine onto the timing covers, which then ground into my timing gears and belt that I had proactively replaced less than a year ago. fuck me. 2400$ later I pick my car up on monday.

Plus side I did get all BSH mounts installed. Next is suspension.

It's been 5.5 months for mine, but it's also sitting under a car cover and hasn't been driven since the middle of October lol.

Already posted this in my build thread, but for those who don't follow it I did this yesterday.






Pictures do not do it justice but you get the idea.

Be careful, covers trap moisture. Just make sure you throw some silica packets on the windshield and air out the cover 2-3 times a week.

Too late for that. I think it's fine though. I've taken the cover off several times this winter as I usually run it outside since my parents hate the smell.
