    Tunning potential

    piggybacking off of this post, it really does depend on how much you wanna spend. a mate has the older 2.0tfsi (bwa) and did a k04 conversion (turbo, hpfp, intercooler, decat etc) and is pushing around 350bhp. the thing is a weapon but he paid a lot to get there. so yeah, the potential is...

    Whirring noise from behind climate control?

    Sounds like it could be the fan for the interior temperature sensor. To the right of the ac button, check to make sure there isn't any dust blocking that grill.

    Rusted sil/side skirt - can it be replaced?

    Upgrading 288 to 312mm Brake Pads Sizes

    short answer: either, theyre basically the same. longer answer: 288mm and 312mm pads are the same, but there seem to be a very slight (by slight, i mean literally a mm difference in width) between available 312mm pads. so, 1ZE=288mm. oem pad pn 5K0698151 1LJ=312mm. oem pad pn 5K0698151...
