    Hey everyone, I am very close to getting a rabbit in a few days. I haven't signed anything yet, but I will probably close the deal by this Friday. The dealer has ordered a 2008 Rabbit for me with ESP. Does anyone here have ESP in their Rabbit? Does anyone know of any problems with it? I...

    I finally got the "coming home" feature to work. 1) You don't need a new switch 2) You do need VAG-COM! 3) I had to recode instrumentation to Europe, although it is said you can also use Great Britain. It will change your time to 24 hr. time. 4) I have no idea if it changes the speedometer...

    I've been searching for this spec and I can't find it. On a site found a 9.0-9.1 sec time but I would like a precise number. I was wondering about this time, how they get it? In drive mode, in sport mode or tip mode? It could be in drive mode and in sport or tip mode could be faster?:confused:

    Hey all, My name's Rob. I'm the proud owner of a new VW Rabbit. I picked up the car from the dealer on Thursday and am already incredibly happy with my purchase. I posted my first road trip on the blog feature for this, which I think is very cool. Kudos to whoever decided to add that...

    So I was at my parents the other night and parked my car in the driveway. I did not lock my door as there was no reason. However, when I got back to my car I saw that my passanger door lock button was lite up as "locked" Then I walked around the car and looked in from the passanger side and...

    I would like to be able to lock the car with no audible horn beep to tell me that it is locked. Both the mechanical lock and the key remote methods of locking the door result in the horn honking. Is there any way to change this? Thanks

    Okay, owned our 2007 Rabbit for three days and I'm done with the auto-lock feature on the doors. Major pain in the arse when you get out and go to open one of the back doors from the outside including the hatch only to find them locked. Does anyone know how a guy can disable this feature so the...

    Does anyone know how to activate these or if they are even availible for the 2006/2007 Rabbit/GTI? I have done some research and it turns out rear fog lamps are a really cool European feature that isn't required but is allowed hear in the US.

    Went and drove a black 2 door automatic yesterday. Overall I was impressed with the handling and acceleration. I wasn't blown away with the Auto/tiptronic feature so I 'm going with my gut and getting the 5 speed. Going down to order wednesday. Right now I have a United Gray 4 door, 16", and...
