I ended up "fixing" my overheating issue I addressed in my last thread but now I got a new problem..
I took the car to work which is about a 13 mile drive, 11 of those being highway. On my way in I was doing a steady 65-70 with the motor at about 3300RPM, traffic speed picked up some so as...
Hi everyone, first time poster, long time lurker.
Just installed a new Intake Manifold and other fun/difficult hoses on my 2013 (Mk6) Golf 2.5L and wanted to throw anyone a bone before pitching the OEM plastic pieces into recycling.
Happy August Long! Drive Safe!
I have just purchased by first VW - a 2001 Golf Cariolet with 99,500 klms done, 4 speed auto, immaculate condition.
I live in Mandurah, Western Australia, am an old fart looking to a bit of fun.

Just Hi from sunny Adelaide, Australia!
My current drive is a red 1990 Golf Cabriolet that is undergoing some tidying up and upgrading.
I've been a lifetime fan of VWs from early bugs, buggies, combis and now my first water cooled.
Still fun, learning new tricks every day.
The Mk4 is my favorite generation even though it's far from being the (objectively) best GTI. Doesn't stop me from loving the **** out of my Mk4 VR6 one bit. It's so fun toshowbox.bio/ tutuapp.uno/ vidmate.vet/ drive despite the nose-heaviness and the torsion beam rear.
Hi, I have recently moved back to the uk from abroad and am looking at purchasing a golf around two years old. I am trying to decide which model to go with out of the above. I would love a GTI or an R but my commute to work is around 52 miles round trip (country lanes or motorway) so the fuel...
Someone gave me this aftermarket Mk1 Rabbit manual. I guess Popular Mechanics used to do these? Anyways, I scanned it in. Some fun reading...one section is titled "How Not to Blow Up Your Battery":
Hello,Forum Just recently bought a 2013 Reef Blue turbo, what a fun car, modern, yet very remenisant of my old 65 type 1. I am a car guy yet, this is my first turbo. so, I will be upgrading, modifying and making changes as time allows. that said, any help with turbo knowledge, information...
I need some advice with the remapped GTD. I've gone from MK7 GTI, R and now onto the GTD. I heard that a remapped GTD is more fun than the GTI and almost as fun as the R and I can confirm this is correct! The Elite remap destroys all GTIs and the remapped GTD can just about keep up with...
Recently brought a VW Polo 53 plate from a friend who was going to send it to the scrapper as he got a new car!.. I couldnt see it happen so decided to have it off him for £100 and have some fun doing it up over the winter.
first problem I would like to tackle is there seems...
Just got my 2008 R32 a couple months ago, got first snow yesterday and guess what I did! Yeah, ESP off and did some wicked cyclones :D:. Apparently I had too much fun because now ESP will not turn back on. Any thoughts on why this would be? I still have AWD and ABS, so not sure what would cause...
Hello everyone, so glad to have found such a great forum. recently hunted down an 09 gti 2 dr, 87k miles, great shape.
So I know I'll be using the search feature a bunch but just wanted to introduce myself and my new toy, and hopefully get some quick feedback from the wise:
1) My rear...
So I've been comparing a bunch of hatches trying to decide between the Mazda 3, crosstrek and possibly the Elantra GT. Think I'm settled on the golf or gti. Found a 17' Autobahn with 12k mi for $20k and think that's a pretty good deal. Just came off of lease. That dark blue with the plaid...
So I as I work with my son on the project:
I came with just one key, I purchased a second online had it cut...........I have the programmed the buttons so they will work but the immobilizer is not set..... do I need to see the dealer for that?
It took some time to find the correct...
Just got this 65 vw and it died on me this morning.
I need someone to help me out with the fix.
Loss of power, engine rattle noise from passenger side I think. It will crank and run but noisy.
This is my 1st classic VW and very fun to ride around.
Nervously made the switch from only buying Honda's since I was a teenager. Bought my neighbors 2012 R-Line that he had an APR Stage II Tune done on. Car is amazingly fun to drive. Looking forward to learning more from fellow CC owners.
