    Sunroof Motor Wires Frayed

    My sunroof stopped working on my MK6 GTI, so I changed the switch and motor today. When I went to take the motor out, the wires between the motor and switch were completed frayed (see attached picture). Any idea how this could have happened in my ceiling? Fortunately the new switch and motor...

Both have completely transformed the cars for the better. Going forward I will stick with IE because I already have...

    Official Integrated Engineering Golf R Performance Products Thread

    After having my MK6 Golf R for a few months, I was underwhelmed by the power and decided to install in IE cold air intake and Stage 1 tune. I also have an MK6 GTI that I had an APR intake and Stage 1 tune installed in about 3 years ago. For the Golf R, I did not want to deal with the hassle of...

    Carbon cleaning?

    I am getting a walnut blast next week on an MK6 GTI. They are cleaning the injectors, replacing the seals and reusing them. I agree that the injectors are too expensive to just replace because you’re in there if there’s nothing wrong with them. Total cost about US$600.
