Put the OEM rims back on for the winter with a brand new set of Falken G5 all seasons. Itís like Iím riding on a cloud compared to the 255 Hankook RS-4ís I had on all summer.

I took the car into the stealership hoping it was under warranty but since it wasn't had to pay a $134 "diagnostic fee" and wait 2.5 hours for them to look up my VIN. I did get a "complimentary" car wash though so that's something. They quoted me $1300 for intake replacement and carbon clean.
Really why would anyone go to the dealership? I really wish I had a dealership like the Pasadena CA one people rave about. My indie guy though is charging me $875 for intake manifold swap and carbon cleaning and is taking pictures for me to share with you fine folks.
I had the same thing happen on my '14, got the dreaded P2015. I knew beforehand something was up, gas mileage was dropping, the car would shudder and surge if I engaged the cruise control; the manifold was definitely messed up. I didn't go to the stealership, though, I'm done with them. The car is at 87k right now.

Maybe. I kind of doubt it. I called VWOA myself before I had a shop do the repair, but like Boscogn above, they said it wasn't covered, my vin wasn't part of the campaign. Told me to keep receipts for 'future possibilites.' uh huh. Whatever. I changed the oil as well, right after the IM change and carbon clean so he runs like a watch now.

The red striping on the diffuser is a good look! What kind of paint did you use?

Yesterday I replaced my fog light bulbs with Nokya yellow ones on my new to me '14 GTI DE, replaced the orange marker lights with smoked ones and amber bulbs, and swapped the mirrors for blue aspherical ones (oh and also had the tune reflashed from stage 2 to stage 1 so I can use it since the old owner removed the DP when he traded the car in).

that sounds about right. they make them to order. dont be shocked if it drags out longer. interested to see if the design holds up better than the OEM ones..

Thanks! Just some of this that I had leftover from another project. It matches the GTI red really well. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Ole...B&gclsrc=aw.ds

Not something I did to my car today butttttt, my coilovers finally got delivered. They shipped from China on monday and said they were estimating the delivery today. I was 100% sure that wasn't possible but UPS proved me wrong. Can't wait to get home and see them. Gonna put a review up on my build thread since I haven't seen anyone use them yet. They are MFactory/YCW Aeris series btw, I believe they had the reference series ones available before and these are the new cheaper, more street oriented variety that were based on them.

I hit a raccoon on my drive home from work last night . Knicked the lower front bumper which wasn't to bad, but also ended up cracking my windshield tank.....

I guess you can say this counts as a weight reduction mod.
