I just made more additions

I'm a nerd for details.

Ahahah! Now it's you who has to re-do your changes! I added the note at the bottom regarding supply-chain/obsolescence logistics.

Well, license plate bulbs are dependent on Xenon headlights/LED DRLs or not (which I noted). Things like the steering wheel "GTI" in all metal or plastic seem to be supply chain depletion related.

Edmunds.com doesn't have specs up yet for the 2013 GTI, but Yahoo! Autos shows the 2013's as about 75lbs. lighter depending on trim versus the 2012's. A typo?

Hm. 75lbs is a lot for some trim here and there. Usually these numbers refer to the base models, too, so Detroits certainly aren't the reason @28lb each. Though the Glens may be lighter, that would net 20lb tops. Maybe there are some mechanical bits changed that aren't noted yet.

OP RevF: Added a note about the various throttle position sensors being revised under 2012, the point where they settled on a final sensor.

Updated op to Rev G. Added note about the dash cubbys on some '13 models.

My 2012 has the overhead Bluetooth and phone controls. I notice that the gauges are different in the 2012-2013 than in the 2011 models. (The red lines...)

Yeah mine (a '12) has the overhead controls too. I wonder if getting rid of them wasn't intentional but a supply hiccup...

Wow okay.. I would advise to check the op and file the dash cubby link, but it redirects to some random thread about diy splash guards. I'll fix that when I get back to my pc
