Re: Pros and Cons of new 1.4 tsi Jetta

Had my waterpump changed in the mk5 already I believe.I think the car was making a real off key noise.

Maybe I would go as far as to say that,the suspension in the jetta is not really all that stiff.At the end of the day this is a sub 200hp vehicle.The suspension wont he near as beefy as a car with 300hp Im guessing.Better shocks will illimnate the excessive up and down bounce,while better springs wi...

If you want launch control on the 7 speed, Unitronic (and one or two other co's) sell a remap for DQ200 that allows the feature..torque limit on the box is also increased.

When I first started driving the Jetta it used to feel one way, but then after a couple run ins some things about it change.It feels at times as if the computer is learning your driving style and adjusting its own parameters to suit
