Not meant as a bitter "I hate my car" thread at all, quite the opposite. Just looking to see what's common, what's not, how you've fixed it, where you got parts, etc...
1. P0303 Monday (Tune up parts ordered from ECS)
2. LR window sometimes goes up, sometimes doesn't, sometimes the pinch protection gets confused.
New master switch waiting for install (same happens to the RF but less frequently)
3. Heat shield, down pipe, flex pipe rattle (?) between 2000-3000 RPMs under light acceleration
(no boost), read something about this in the GTI section. Sounds like marbles in a tin can.
4. Various interior bits failing (already know this is common) search eBay daily for replacements with
Since June replaced wheel bearings, cam follower, drive belt and tensioner, wiper motor, all the filters (oil twice), tires and new engine mounts. Most just maintenance / wear and tear.
...and wash day
