  1. Passat (B7)
    Hey guys, I’m new to these forums, but I have a 2018 Passat R Line and was wondering if it were possible to convert a b cycle to a regular third gen 2.0t? Is it just a matter of replacing cam and crankshafts as well as head? I know the turbo is not the same.
  2. Jetta VII
    It’s a 2018 Jetta with 28k miles. Dealer says the rear main seal is leaking. Is this a known issue? I saw oily spots on the driveway the day after the dealer did an oil change. The car was parked on the driveway for 3 days before the oil change and there was no visible leak then ((no oil...
  3. The Beetle
    Hello, I just got a deal on a 2018 S 2.0L, was wondering if any one knew what a 6speed manual transmission conversion would entail? I’m looking to start gathering parts and eventually convert when my warranty’s are expired. I have no idea where to start. Thank you! P.s. My ‘70 beetle was...
  4. Tiguan (MQB)
    Hi all, New to this forum but my husband is looking at a 2018 Tiguan - however, it was a buyback for the sunroof leak. We have confirmed fixes from a VW dealer (Interior replaced, headliner replaced, drains fixed), however, we are still cautious. Is it an absolutely horrible idea to purchase...
  5. Atlas SUV
    Hello. So I just bought 2018 Atlas two months ago from a dealership (not VW dealership). Now it’s time for me to do the emission. However, when the guy that was doing the test connected the cable to my ODB, it would not communicate ( picture attached). Same at another emission location...

    Things pretty much went as expected for VW in 2018, as the year-end numbers confirm a modest increase in sales that makes the Atlas and the Tiguan (and the people who pushed for them) look like heroes. Counting both the Tiguan and the Tiguan Limited, it was the single nameplate with the most...

    The SUVs again helped buoy VW's forward charge in March. Sales for the brand rose nearly 18% last month and nearly half of that was thanks to the Atlas, Touareg, and the Tiguans. The new Tiguan was the biggest single seller for VW in March, with sales of 8,200. There's no data point from March...

    The Geneva Motor Show never fails to impress with its wealth of rarified and high-horsepower steel. Yet again, the show was chock full of super-, hyper-, and otherwise superlative-cars for the wildly wealthy of old Europe to gawk at.  With the I.D. Vizzion making its debut, VW was ready with...

    SUVs accounted for more than half of all VW sales in the first month of 2018, as the brand’s sales rose more than 5%. With sales of the Atlas, Touareg, Tiguan, and Tiguan Limited totaling 13,077, they made up 52% of Volkswagen sales last month. Again, it’s hard to say quite how well the SUVs...

    The German automotive industry is looking strong this year with record production expected, but things are only expected to get better. Thanks to strong demand in China and India, the VDA carmakers’ lobby expects growth to remain strong in Germany into 2018. The Volkswagen Group, Daimler, and...

    Volkswagen is going to make like Elvis Costello and pump its Up! Ill-conceived allusions aside, the Up! is getting the GTI treatment next year, and will get 114 hp out of its 1.0-liter TSI engine. Thanks to its scale and low weight (just 2,200 lbs) the Up! GTI is expected to hit 62 mph in fewer...
