    Avoid the 7 speed DSG used in the lower spec models - they are garbage. If you get a Mk6 with either a TDI engine, a GTI or and R then they have a more robust and reliable 6 speed DSG which is the...

    I think what he means is that the filter/strainer is not part of the standard service. Replacing the oil is, but checking/cleaning the filter is not.

    Ahh ok. So the EGR pipe connects with a tiny v band type clamp on the underside of the inlet manifold pipe. Its a bit fiddly to get at (awkward angle and not much space) but doable.

    You can see...

    You will probably find that Bosch make the injectors for VW anyway. Car manufacturers outsource parts like these to 3rd party specialist manufacturers.

    Id say the biggest difference from my Mk6 GTI to the Mk7 is the electronic differential. The Mk7 just puts the power down so much better than the Mk6 did. Apart from this they are very similar in my...
