Thanks for the reply.

It didn't lose any electrical power. It just felt as if I had suddenly slowed and then accelerated hard. Or as if I had suddenly downshifted hard, or shifted down and...

Power Steering Noise

Recently, I've been noticing a noise when I back into a parking spot. I'm guessing it's coming from the power steering pump. I try to avoid turning the wheel to a full lock, but when I back into a...

Wait... back up. I know that this is going to lead us down a rabbit hole (NPI), but the GTI and the A4 produce the same torque, even though the A4 has more HP. So does that mean that they will...

It looks like the A4 has a 5.1 sec 0-60 and 13.8 sec quarter mile time. The GTI is 5.7 and 14.4. So why do you say that the Audi is slower?

Everything I read says that unless you're taking your car to the track (which I'm not) the GTI is so close to the R that the extra money isn't worth it.

If I can't get it with a sunroof, I...

MKVIII

It seems like VW likes to give the current GTI the same HP and torque numbers as the current or outgoing Audi A4. Does that mean that the next GTI is going to get 258 HP and 273 ft-lb of torque?

Anyone have any comparisons of the GTI and 2017 A4?

I love how fun my GTI is, and I love the hatch. I also love the sunroof and the DSG. But, I wouldn't say no to more power, or a bigger sunroof, or AWD.

I thought about the Golf R, but I also...

Nasty scrape on door

I scraped the edge of the door against a wall. It's about 6-8 inches long, and maybe 1/2 in wide.

Body shop, scratch wizard kit, or mobile scratch'n'dent guy from Craigslist?
