    2007 jetta wolfs 5mt us/nar - slow/delayed rpm drop when shifting or coasting

    This is for now just a general question, my sister bought this car new, so it has been in the family since then. As far as I remember, the car has always done this, so I simply accepted as normal behavior. It is not really a problem, it's just always been more a curiosity and less a minor...

    general coil pack questions

    I was reading some of Jack's coil packs posts, and was wondering how cross compatible coil packs are across vw engines. I have 2003 1.8t jetta, and 2007 2.5 (non-turbo, 5 cyl) jetta. the connectors looks similar but slightly different. Is it possible to put the same set of coil packs in...

    2001 passat - b5 or b5.5 vin confirmation

    I have a 2001 v6 4mo passat, I am pretty sure it is a b5.5 due to the tail lights with the split red/clear sections, but is there any way to confirm conclusively via VIN? WVWTH63B21P275917 I tried checking on line vin web sites but couldn't find anything conclusive, at least without buying...

    hex-net web and scanning newer cars

    From what I can tell, it is currently not possible to scan 'admaps' via hex-net-web and must be done via VCDS? Will this be possible at some time in the future? If so, is would that be a near or indefinite timeline? if this is already possible, how does one go about doing an admap scan with...
