  1. Jetta GLI rims on 06 Rabbit

    MKV Mods and Installs
    Can someone tell me if the stock GLI Jetta rims will fit a Rabbit. Tire size 225/45/18. I know 235/45/17 will fit for sure. I think they are 1” overall from stock and .5” over the 235/45/17. Anyone ? Thanks

    Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Had my longtime, very reliable local shop check it out. Genuinely shocked at what they said but: The code comes up as a MAP sensor, but the mechanic said that VW had known about this problem for many years--it's a computer issue! The computer needs to be reflashed. He even showed me on his...
