Ive been using an OEM plug and washer all along never any issues. I was considering ordering the magnetic ECS plug to try out. Guess Ill be sticking with OEM

Had my timing chain tensioner/CAM bridge replaced yesterday, picked up today. A couple of short drives after, I got a Bend Lighting failure message and have the 'light bulb' displaying. This is daylight hours, so my headlights were not on.

Q: Seems like a strange coincidence...have about 70k miles on the car. Might the tech have screwed up a connection while they were in there?

Update: I checked the light...there's condensation inside the right HL lens, and the Xenon bulb is out....guess that's probably it?

Bought some of the center cap/lug covers to go with my steelies for winter. Part #5N0071456XRW. They were originally meant for the tiguan I think. Problem is, I can't get them to stay on the damn lugs. Sounds like it clips, but pulls off super easy. Is there a trick I'm missing?

Do you know the part # of your steelies? Maybe they're shaped slightly differently. It says that they are for wheel part # 5N0601027B091. I do know that the regular wheel bolt covers for my serrons don't fit tightly either.

They are not OEM steelies, they are from Summit. I think they are U. S. Wheels brand. But I have seen several people on other sites say they fit. I am wondering if the lugs are just slightly too small to fit them. They are aftermarket lugs too. Maybe lug caps would help, then cram the covers on those? Or possibly some kind of adhesive? Just afraid that I either wont be able to get them back off, or that the adhesive wont hold up to sub-0 temps..... Not really sure where to go from here.

Center caps come in a few sizes. Measure again and be sure. If you're only going to use these with vws, break out the epoxy and make them fit for good.

Trouble is, I need to be able to remove these to put my summer wheels on after winter.

So I've got all the trim off my bumper right now and I was just wondering...anybody ever take the honeycomb off to show off their IC?

I think it might look pretty good if I put the foglight covers and the trim back in, but I don't know how obvious the tabs on the trim will be.

I'd be afraid the inter-cooler would take a direct hit from road debris.

You'll be fine man, I was running my car that way before it got totaled and never had any issues. It gives you a reason to wipe down the fmic more often and breaks everyone's neck I've driven it to Las Vegas and through canyons and what not and never had any issues besides it getting dirty which is about it. Here is a picture for reference with the fog housing on

Oh my bad I assumed you meant center caps like this https://i.ebayimg.com/thumbs/images/...Wat/s-l225.jpg

Just looked your part number up. What about automotive tape by 3m? Semi permanent BUT comes off with some work?
