Will a Porsche oil cap fit a mk6? I see people with r8 oil caps and read somewhere the Porsche cap will fit a mk5 but what about a mk6?

What size silicone hose will fit onto the washer fluid reservoir, what ID for the hose? My filler neck is falling apart so I'm looking to do something like that. I can measure it in the morning, but if anyone already knows that'd be cool lol

i doubt it. if you're interested in that kind of thing, i recommend googling it in a query like:

Quote:
site:golfmk6.com mk6 aftermarket headunits
Seeing that you're on tapatalk i wont bust your balls about not using the search feature - but the forum does have that, for future reference.

Side note, beware some of the manufacturers of aftermarket headunits - they come on here and actively solicit members for positive reviews in exchange for slim discounts. I can confirm that this is a thing, and it's total horseshit. After failed attempts with aftermarket, i went OEM premium headunit and love what i've got.

Thanks for the info. I tried searching using tapatalk feature but came back with limited results. That's why I posted this stupid question in the stupid questions thread. What head unit did you go with?

Ive had a RNS315 and RCD510 and both have been great. The RNS510 is also excellent but the earlier versions are definitely slower than the newer ones with SSDs and updated software. The Chinese market OEM RCD330g is pretty nice also -more modern so it's easier to install also (integrated Bluetooth and headunit vs. the earlier units)

We're jumping all over the price point though from $200-800 or more for various OEM headunits.

Aftermarket I haven't had good experiences. Have tried the Blaupunkt Philadelphia unit and a few offbrand Andriod units but usually the software is extremely irritating to deal with.

I had a base OEM head unit when I got my golf. Got my self an android unit and have not had 1 problem with it so far. Think I payed just over 200 for it about 2 years ago.

Yeah Tapatalk isn't that good of an application, i just use the web browser version of the forum on my mobile devices.

Originally had the RNS-315, which wasn't bad at all. I tried an android head unit and it was so slow, i had to send it back after being installed for 5 days. i did a review thread in the electronics section.

I then went to RNS-510 and absolutely love it. OEM look and increased functionality than the RNS315. bought mine on eBay, and the unit came out of a Passat so i had some minor VCDS tweaks to make the thing work and sound good in the GTI. If you go that route eBay has pretty good selection, usually, and the prices are not that bad for some of the newer revisions (anything after Revision E should be good enough)

I know this is stupid, been searching deep and found the right headlights for the right price that doesn't include the red strip

they are the eBay dual u projector headlights for the mk6 and the ones I want say fits the vw golf 6 years 2011-2014 and also says doesn't fit gti or r.. Now my question is aren't they the same headlight size and fitment? I don't believe it changed because every other light includes the golf as well as gti and others..
