    Extended warranty (intake manifold)

    Today the postman dropped off an envelope from VW. Inside I find that my intake manifold now has an extended warranty for ten years or 120,000 miles whichever comes first. It says it covers certain 2013, 2014, 2016 & 2017 model year Volkswagen vehicles. Anyone else receive one of these from VW?

    Front plate freedom day!!!

    Never thought I'd see this happen, but as of today no front plates required on cars in Ohio. Bought my car in Indiana so the front bumper wasn't drilled for a plate. No way I was going to do it either. I've been plate-less for 5 years. Even when the county sheriff pulled me over for enjoying...

    Oil all over the garage floor. WTF!

    My GTI has been sitting since Thursday afternoon. Today I back it out of the garage & notice a big black puddle. It's oil, I checked the dipstick & It's down 1/2 quart. The oil was under the passenger side of the engine. Turbo oil line or some other culprit? I have no clue. I'm going to put the...

    New old guy here....

    Hello folks, first post for me. I've been lurking about trying to learn what I can about the care & feeding of a GTI. I found my GTI 2 weeks ago, a 2013 CPO base model with DSG. My plans are to add some light weight 17" wheels, sway bars & have some Vagcom magic done. How I hate that damn...
