    Just crashed the golf

    Got cut off by another car and hit an island center divider square at like 40mph. Essentially hit a curb dead on at 40mph and launched the golf. Luckily it was dirt in the island so there was nothing else to hit. Unsure the total extent of the damage. No body damage. Would be shocked if the...

    I might actually have to take my car to a mechanic

    Yesterday I drove down to San Diego for a conference 100 miles round trip. No problem. Did the same drive today and the car suddenly has a very noticeable humming sound coming from the transmission and a noticeable clunk from where the CV joints enter the transmission when turning the front...

    Throttle Response Issue *Resolved*

    Hello all. If you've been on here over the last year and a half you have likely heard me bitch incessantly about the throttle response on the MK6 golf. I had a manual MK6 TDI with no issues. My issues were not just the initial rev that's a side effect of shortening the intake tube but were...

    Head Unit Upgrade

    Any advice on Head Units. I am sure this has been discussed here but not recently and I am looking for more current opinions. I am currently running the RCD-510 with 9w7 bluetooth. It works very well but is a bit dated (slow, clunky, black & white). I have read a lot of reviews on different...

    Disable ASR with vcds?

    Does anyone know if it is posible to disable ASR with vcds for a 2012+ Gllf MK6? I know where the setting is but if you try and change it to the off position it will not persist. I can turn it off via the traction control button but since I drive with it off all the time I would rather just...

    Catch Cans

    I thought I would post this as I have read tons of questionable information regarding catch cans on variois forums...and the Superbowl is a snoozer currently. They are quite easy to set up and clean if you get a can intended for the purpose and don't try and cheap out on some eBay special or...

    All quiet on the 2.5L front

    Awfully quiet in here. I'm assuming that's because the 2.5L is so damn reliable and everyone's car is running awesome! Happy New Year! May your 5th cylinder outlive 1000 turbos.

    Motor mount upgrade. Worth the expense?

    A buddy of mine just got a MK5 2.5L jetta and was asking me if I upgraded my motor mounts as he was looking into it for his first mod. I thought it was a strange first mod but it sounds pretty common. Then I saw what they cost. Whoa. $600 to do the engine, trans and dogbone. Ouch. Is it...

    parking Brake

    Just did my rear brakes, pads and rotors, and after I was done the parking brake is a little loose. Why would it loosen? I would think it would be the opposite with added pad thickness. I know how to adjust under the center console but was curious if anyone knew why it would loosen up with...
