    Factory window Weathershields

    Wasn't sure where to post this, but figured as the same style seems to be used across the multiple brands, I'd try here.

    Don't know if you got any further, but did you program it out?
    Also, you can get them cleaned out rather than replacing. Not cheap, but cheaper than $8k

    Most of the cars I've seen in Aus got supplier with a euro 13 pin to 7 pin adaptor. If you do this way, make sure the car is programmed for "australia". Mine wasn't and the previous owner put with...

    Don't need to worry about the video. I get what you're saying. And I daresay unless you've got the exact same engine/gearbox combo, it wouldn't be quite the same anyway.

    I've got a few particular issues with the way the DSG operates in my 2015 Octavia.

    A pretty common one I've noted (from posts in lots of other placeS) is the shifting up way too early and holding...

    Can you elaborate on the "just sits there"?
    From my understanding of the clutches, they are naturally disengaged unless pressure is applied, which is the opposite of a clutch in a manual. If neutral...

    Sorry, no it doesn't.

    I'm pretty sure it has autohold. I stop on an uphill and take my foot off the brake and the car will sit there.
    BUT, if I'm parked on a downhill or a flat and I take my...

    If it's still $10/L that's not too bad. Skoda had quoted me $10 for something like a 200mL bottle. But it's more like a 10:1 mix ratio.

    Sydney ringin

    Hi All,

    I'm kind of cheating because I own a Skoda, not a VW. But as Skoda introduced the "off-road" AWD version earlier, do you blame me for trying to get a bargain.
