    Took this pic before filling up, does anyone have any history with the rabbit 2.5/vw 2.5s overall, and what gas mileage they get in the city both in summer and winter? Paying $70 Canadian to fill up and only getting 350km to a tank is killing me right now. 2007 Rabbit with 5-speed MT. Also...

    What's the best way to change the tiny city lights on a MK5 Jetta? Some have taken off the front bumper and other haven't to do the job. I've tried pulling it straight back, but it doesn't seem to want to come out. What's your best recommendation?

    I just recently installed a cold air intake on my 2012 Jetta SE and everything was smooth for a few days but now the car makes a loud sputtering noise when taking off or accelerating at low speeds. Once the car has been rolling for a bit it stops, but it does this every time now. Does anyone...
  9. 2.5l Inline-5 Engine Forum
    So with no information really out there on deleting the combination valve and secondary air injection pump. I thought I would give my tips and instructions on how to remove it from the 2.5l 5Cyl 07k engine. First off it's going to be alot easier if you are installing a new intake manifold or...

Dose anyone know what the thread size is on the oem hard line so I can make custome AN powersteering lines? Also what size an lines would be the closest to the stock line...

    I'm thinking of getting a 2009 Jetta (SE?) with 96,000 miles. It's got the 5 speed manual. The only issue (I'm told) is trunk has a dent from backing into a pole. I know the seller. Is this a good car to pursue? What are some specific things to check/questions to ask during my visit and...
  13. Golf V & Jetta V
    I bought my 2009 Jetta 2.5L about 3 months ago, and I’ve always gotten about 450km out of a full tank of gas. But this seems really low to me, i used to drive a 2001 Jetta tdi and I would get 1000km out of a tank easy. I know that the Diesel engine is way better on gas but I wouldn’t think that...
  14. Jetta/GLI VI
    Hey guys, I'm new to this community so please bare with me lol. I recently just purchased a 2011 Jetta 2.5 SE with 165k miles on it. What should be the first things i take care of maintenance wise so that i can make sure this car lasts me?? I got an oil change the day i bought so that's good for...
  15. Golf V & Jetta V
    So I very stupidly did not realize until after my oil change that I used 5W-30 Castrol Edge that does NOT meet VW 502 00. It does meet/exceed API SN PLUS/SN/SM/SL , ILSAC GF-5/GF-4/GF-3 , ACEA A5/B5 C2 , GM dexos1 Gen2 , Ford WSS-M2C946-A , Ford WSS-M2C946-B1 , Honda HTO-06 , Chrysler MS-6395...

    Just look at it. The Mk6 Jetta has been accused of lacking visual flare and personality. Anyone who says that is, of course, blind, but they do still say it. However you feel about the Jetta, though, it’s hard to argue that with it’s golden proportions and it’s clean lines, it takes...

    Being the first isn't something that happens very often anymore, but when C2 Motorsports' Rabbit Turbo hit the scene, it was just that.  The first Mk5 Rabbit to be turbocharged.  The first to wear fender flares.  It was even featured in Eurotuner twice.  Yes, this 360hp Mk5 turned quite a few...
