I changed out my chains and guides on my 2011 about a year ago at somewhere around 120-125kmi. I changed out the tensioner to the updated version around 108kmi but decided to go back in and update it...

I've had a highway shake from around 75mph+ for 2-3 years now. It started completely out of the blue, was on the highway one day and suddenly had a shake. Since then I've made numerous part changes...

No drawback doing the DSG fluid at 30kmi vs 40kmi other than cost of materials.

I've typically done my DSG fluid every 30kmi since new. I could feel the difference in smoothness when cold even...

So they are saying they pretty much have to do a timing chain replacement plus replace the cam bridge, N205 valve, and intake cam for $4900? If so then that's really high. I've heard dealers charge...

My engine still runs great at 130kmi and I've done a lot of work on it myself from timing chain...

Dielectric grease makes it much easier to install and remove the coil packs plus also keeps moisture out. Without the grease it feels like you are going to pull the coil pack apart internally if the...

I'd have to agree with GTIguy30 and just pay the extra few hundred for the cam and balance shaft chains, new upper timing cover gasket, and the chain guides. If the tensioner is being changed out...

Seems the initial question was just answered so it's safe to derail this thread.

Did you have the generic Cobb K04 tune or did you get a ProTune? How did it compare to the GIAC tune? I have the...

$4200 to just replace those items, so that much to change out the timing chains and cam bridge? If so that's about $2000 too high even with the cost of a cam bridge factored in. There must be...

Definitely do both the chains and tensioner if at 100kmi or more. At least 80% of the labor for the chain job is already done when changing just the tensioner so save yourself from doing the job...
