    I'm bored, let's fight about oil

    Well, not fight, but just got thinking and noticed something. I've been a long time Castrol fan (since 1995) with the exception of a short 10 year stint using Mobil 1. Evidently VAG has dropped Castrol as factory fill and so consequently Castrol is not even bothering to make as many flavors...

    How many folks from Idaho?

    I'm guessing this is where Idaho regional would be, hopefully not over in the Northwest section. ;) In MO now but looks like we'll be moving to Boise next year. Looks like there's just one VW/Audi dealer so hopefully they are good to deal with. The only APR tuner I could find looks like they...

    Castrol Edge Supercar - Let's get some thoughts and ideas

    Thumper's 2012 Stg 3 Golf R - The Defiant

    After 5 years out of the MK6 platform I am back. I had a 2012 4dr GTI I bought new and built into a Stg 2 trackday runabout, after 3 years with it I moved to CO and wanted to upgrade to AWD. The '15 Rs were all ordered up and my dealer made me a stupid good deal on a S3 but it just didn't...

    DRL non-op Diagnosis

    So I recently came back to the Mk6 fold picking up a 2012 Golf R, previous owner had the DRLs turned off in MFI, however checking the box did not activate them (though it did cause the "DRL" light in the dash to illuminate when disengaging the parking brake with headlights off). I checked the...

    Get out of the GTI and into a R, TTS or a M235Xi??

    I'm at an impasse. First, let me start by saying any discussion about "pay it off/no payments/losing money/blah/blah" is pointless here. That's not what I care about. I like having new cars and I am more than happy to pay the price for that. :thumbsup: In fact, this one will be a lease...

    Another "New Car help me decide" thread.

    LOL I love these. So, not replacing the GTI, really replacing the Jetta this time (which is what we were supposed to be doing with the Q, but...whatever.). We had been waiting for the Sign and Drive event to get a great lease deal, lower our payments and get a new car (we rolled a LOT of...
