thanks so much for the information/education.... much appreciated."A PR code is a production code given to each piece of equipment installed in your vehicle and is used by manufacturers including VW, Audi, Seat, and Skoda. PR Codes contain three characters comprising of letters and numbers."
You can find some of the PR codes on the label in the trunk floor or owners manual if they stuck one in there. It will look like this

Unfortunately that label does not contain the complete PR for the build of the car, like I said I have an eight page list of PR codes while the PR label only has about a page worth of info. First page of the list

And part of page 2 that show I have PR1Q0 without mass damper for steering wheel that does not appear on the label on trunk floor.

nice! this is something I really want to do but I've been too lazy. what stereo are you running?Climatic to Climatronic (mk5 jetta w/mk6 bcm)
All it took was a climatronic face (free), a climatronic blower/ctrl unit (20$) and a PQ35 Climatic-2-Climatronic harness on aliexpress (30$?).
Gotta love u-pick junkyards!
(only thing that doesnt work atm is the dual zone I have to change the distro box to a dual flap motor one. yes, sunlight and air quality sensor both work )
Which Bilstein? Mk5 or MK6? B8,B6?Bought some Koni Str.t struts and shocks today. Looked on my ECS tuning order page and I brought my Bilsteins back in March 2013 so time for a change. Not sure if I want to keep my H&R super sports as I'm getting to be closer to my mid 40s. The Bilsteins were definitely a stiff ride hopefully the Koni's are a little more comfortable. I had Koni yellows before the Bilsteins and they were pretty stiff as well.
Koni STR would be on par with OEM GTI. VWR springs are safe for OEM dampers, according to their website. They are not progressive. The spring is wound like OEM. Drivers Gear and European Eibach would be good choices too.I've already ordered Koni Str.t from ECS should be shipping today. Just trying to figure what springs I need to order. I have H&R super sports and they are way too low.
The rubber mounts are much quieter and more comfortable. With the camber plates you felt and heard every imperfection in the road and it crashed over bumps quite hard. I've gone back to rubber mounts as it's my daily and I just don't need the amount of camber adjustability anymore, I'm prioritising comfort and camber plates kind of defeated the purpose of having comfort orientated coilovers.What are your thoughts on the differences between the two?
actually it's what i decided NOT to do to my VW today... lol. i already replaced my gas cap and i'm still getting small evap leak codes and so i checked in with my guru and he said it's most likely the N80 purge valve and i looked at a video and then went down to the car and looked at the part and looked up the cost and was like... i can do that. and i can afford the part. but then i was like... for the most part i have stopped wrenching on cars and while this job looks really straight forward anytime i think that it ends up taking way longer than i expect it to... and then when i was looking at the part i noticed it still had those ridiculous single use VW vacuum hose clamps that are like impossible to remove without a. hurting yourself. b. hurting the hoses c. worse. and so then i was like... the car is going in the shop in a few weeks anyway for some routine maintenance... i'll just have them do it... i'm sure their tech can do it in like 10 or 15 minutes and he probably has some cool vacuum hose clamp removal tool and other implements of VW magick to make the job way easier.
it's times like these when i wish i knew an older dude with time on his hands and knowledge to share and an awesome set of tools... sadly i don't cultivate relationships like i used to and so i don't have ppl like that in my life anymore. i would be more inclined to tackle it under such circumstances but just me with not the exactly right tools for the job and panache for bungling jobs like this leads me to believe i'd be better off leaving it to the professionals regardless of how easy and straight forward it looks... it never is with these cars... i'm kind of embarrassed to admit that in this space but whatever. there's probably a few of you who can relate.
