No, from what I've read on tdiclub people with the 'fix' replacement intercooler and piping are still having the problem.

I wasn't complaining about the mileage of my GTI. I like my...

Nah, it was him I was referring to. The self-styled Toledo Jeremy Clarkson has mastered the being an ass part without the funny part.

Early, true, but only after making the Prius crack and comments about Ann Arbor, which is what makes you an asshole, isn't it?

I've pretty much gotten very close to EPA numbers with my last vehicles. I expect the GTI to live up to them as well as soon as it warms up and the motor is broken in and winter gas goes away. I just...

Suffice it to say that I found it incomprehensible that the US government would do something right for once.

Go look it up would have been a more useful answer than I've gotten from the fucktards with 'hurrr, imperial gallons' and 'buy a prius.'

Thanks for an actual answer. After converting, the difference of 31 vs 40 hwy is still very large, and I find it difficult to believe that I could do 120km/h (the extra-urban speed for ECE testing)...

Yea, I wanted a TDI and was a day away from buying one when I found out about intercooler icing. The GTI was the only alternative for me.

Well, I know the UK cars are spec'd at 207 HP, vs 200 HP here.

Do you have any links to these standards, or are you just a blowhard?

Better gasoline? How so?

I can understand emissions making some difference, but 33%? That's ridiculous.

For the last fucking time, 'imperial measurement' doesn't matter once you CONVERT the numbers.

If EPA testing is at 50 mph, what is UK and DE testing at? 35 mph highway? Downhill? In a vacuum?

Buy a Prius? **** a ****.

I'm asking why the rated numbers in Europe are higher than in America. Either the testing methodology in the UK and Germany is fatally flawed and no one ever sees numbers...

:lol:

The UK mileage numbers for the GTI are 48.7 extra-urban (hwy) and 38.7 combined.

There seems to be a reading comprehension problem here.

I guess the miles in Canada are shorter than in the US because they claim 35 mpg hwy (US) in Canada.

Yes, they do. The numbers in imperial gallons are even higher.

The numbers I posted (40 hwy, 32 combined) are in US gallons.

Angry I want a UK-spec GTI!

Why are the UK and DE spec GTIs with a manual transmission rated at 32 mpg COMBINED and 40 mpg highway (in US gallons), while the USA version is SO much lower?

The heck with tuning to get more...

Question Steering wheel adjustment

In my handy-dandy 2012 GTI manual, it states the steering wheel should be pointed at your chest and not your face so the airbag doesn't punch you in the melon when deployed. I've searched the forum...

You can't get a regular Golf 2.5L in a 4-door/manual configuration, only automatic. Only the 2-doors get the manuals.

You should probably check out the threads on tdiclub.com about fuel pump...

Wow, with all these great deals, I have to wonder why SE Michigan dealers seem reluctant to go below invoice.
