    MKV DG Springs question

    So does this look like my car has DG springs installed? I have looked at so many pictures and I honestly don't know for sure. I measured my ride height the other day and I want to say it was 26.5"-26.25" all the way around.

    Are there any cold air intakes that don't have the annoying noise? I just bought a MKV GTI and took off the Injen intake. Could not stand all the noise! Any options to get the benefits without the noise?

    So I just have to vent...Re: RNS510

    The Media setup using the hard drive or an iPod in the center console is just crap. The screen changing interface for even getting to the music is SLOW, patience trying, and cumbersome. I have given it two years and have tried to be patient but I give up. It's just crap. The Nav, Dynaudio...

    EURO vs US Ride Height

    So after looking at the extensive thread on the DriverGear springs, do they bring the US spec car to Euro specs as far as ride height? From the published specs I have found (not always accurate) looks like the answer is No since both seem to be 57.8" overall height and Min. ground clearance of...

    Euro parts

    So has anyone bought parts from a dealer from say UK or Germany? I need a front plate holder but don't like the fact that some online retailers charge double the price. From what I have seen on Euro dealer sites it's about $28. Cheapest I have found otherwise is ECS for $40+$15 shipping. Surely...

    At the dealer yesterday

    So we had to take both cars in for service, mine was a 20k service and my wife's was the mechatronics recall. While we were there we were scheduled to drive the new Beetle turbo. All in all, nice car but not as tight and sporty as my GTI. This one was a DSG and the difference between it and...

    So set the record straight...

    I thought I had read on the net SOMEWHERE that key fobs can be programmed to roll windows/roof up and down by pressing and holding the lock and unlock. My dealer has told me it's not possible. I had a 1992 Corrado that did it, my 2004 MINI did it...what gives? My OM states that it can be...

    RNS510 Radio changing...

    Anyone ever had the station change all by itself? I have had several occasions where it changes from what I am listening to to the last preset and all have been while making a right hand turn. For instance, coming off the interstate and merging right on the crossroad it has changed from SIRIUS...
