OEM spring numbers for 2010 DSG 2 door?

Somehow managed to break a rear spring on my GTI. I'm selling it soon so just want to replace the broken part, not put on drivergear or aftermarket springs. Anybody have the proper part number for a...

So once it starts happening, it'll keep happening until the car is turned off - so at least I know it's going on. Car is going into dealer next week for a failed throttle body sensor anyway...

My GTI isn't as nice in snow, even with snow tires, as my Jeep ZJ or my Audi B5 A4 Quattro.

Imagine that, 4WD/AWD with high-mid profile tires is better in snow than FWD stiff suspension with low...

I haven't had any symptoms yet (but haven't been able to rev the engine up, stupid traffic), but I just threw codes P0120 and P1543 - which both point to throttle position sensor/throttle body. ...

Throwing a couple codes... P0120 / P1543. Throttle body dying?

Trying to track this one down so I know how much it's going to cost me. ~45k miles on my 2010. Codes pulled from my p3cars boost gauge, not a VAGCom, so there is a chance they may be wrong.

P0120...

It shouldn't if you wash the car thoroughly first and make sure to keep the clay surface fresh. Make sure to use plenty of lubricant (either a dedicated clay lube, QD spray, or ONR mix).

Sounds like mechatronics woes.

See if you can find a reliable way to reproduce your issues, and get a video of it happening. This helped me a ton when I had my mechatronics unit replaced.

They likely won't even listen to you unless you have a patent pending. Most companies won't (so you can't sue them for IP theft later on if they do launch it, but had been working on it anyway).

Thanks DBESTGTI. Any chance you have a shot of it with just the hitch, no rack? Curious about ground clearance.

Also - which hitch system are you using? Any issues with install?

Thanks!
