    Thanks!

    Does anyone have a good fix for a broken parcel shelf string? VW wants $30 for a replacement.

    Could you provide details on that? Such as a link to an official VW announcement? Because I'm not completely happy with my DSG at the moment.

    Despite all that, I still love the car! I just want it...

    You have my sympathy. My engine died at 39k, and I'm not confident that the "fixed" version has actually solved the problem.

    I had all four pistons replaced, but I still have problems. And the DSG clutch shudder is getting worse again.
