The gauge in my car slowly comes up to temp. No fluctuations. I have see this twice on other cars, once it was a duff thermostat & once an air bubble working it's way through the system.
I fill with a vacuum tool so there shouldn't be any air in the system. Mine behaved as it usually does this morning... went straight to 190 and stayed there.The gauge in my car slowly comes up to temp. No fluctuations.

I'm about to get this setup for just under $500 from Tirerack.com. My question is when you push the calipers pistons back in to fit the new pads will the break fluid leak out the top of the reservoir? I have been told to take the cap off prior to starting the job. None of the DIYs I've watched have address it. I have 95000 mi and have never replaced my setup. Thank you for your help

I did have the fluid flushed at 80000 mi. It's just the pads and rotors I've never done. I've had them inspected annually. I have no complaints I just figured I should change them anyways. At least once in 100000 mi.
At that mileage on the mk6 you need to see if the timing tensioner and chain has been replaced. If that's not something you can do yourself it's a pretty good bill. I'm not familiar with mk5s, so I'm not sure what to look out for there.Hey everyone . I’ve been looking for a mk6 , and I found one 2011 has 111k miles and four door. Has a new trans and clutch done $6k has a dent behind the back driver side door
Vs a 2009 with TSI 109k miles two door asking $5500. My question is the should I save some cash and get the mk5 or is the mk6 that much better . Thanks
