      I don't know if the coding is the same as the MK7 but you could try setting them to activate with parking lights. The German word starts with "stand". But you would need to reduce the brightness...

      It would take a pretty high speed to force any significant amount of air through that restrictive grate... The back is wide open to the engine bay. Lower speeds is where you need cold air for...

    5. Why VW disables hatch brake lights in US while Audi does not?

      Every Volkswagen car that I know of comes from the factory with the inner hatch/trunk mounted lights set to work only as marker lights at night. Lighting up for brakes is limited to the outer lights....

      The front side has tiny rectangular openings, it isn't just fully open. The back is directly open to the engine bay. It would take a decent speed to actually push air in through the front, so I'm...

      Considering an oil filter can last for a year in a car soaked in oil subject to massive temperature swings and high heat, shouldn't it be able to last forever on the shelf?

      I had a rental Chrysler 300 with acoustic side glass. Compared to my Alltrack it's night and day.

      The mistake people make is looking at decibel levels. Decibels in highway driving are mainly...

      Seems like people think a 0W-40 oil is like a 5W-40 only better. Nope. They're made from a thinner base stock with additional thickening agents. Of course a less viscous oil is going to burn off...

      I've never heard my fan run after shut off, only the coolant pump. I don't know if that's how it's supposed to be though

      VW has said themselves that they are intentionally using conservative styling because buyers are comfortable with it and it ages well. The outlandish Hyundai and Mazda designs from a few years ago...

      Since I switched from manual to auto, I keep both hands on the wheel at 9 and 3. Might as well take advantage of a major benefit of not having to shift, plus it discourages slouching and keeps forces...

      That Porsche is a classic. I don't understand why you'd risk turning small parking lot fender benders into frame damage! Especially considering the bumper already has a plate indentation...

      There is an issue with the tow hook mount plate I just noticed.... You're basically bypassing the bumper and creating a rigid connection directly to the frame. If another vehicle bumps your plate,...

      But a lower thermostat would cause the engine to warm up slower, as it will begin cooling sooner. That's worse for wear of the engine itself

      Panoramic roofs all have tint as far as I know. Yes they get hotter than clear glass would, that's hot tint works!
