Re: Pros and Cons of new 1.4 tsi Jetta

Postby aaron17 » November 14th, 2018, 6:23 am

I have been experiencing a noise ..not all the time but a louder than usual humming noise at low speeds at first when I start driving the car. At high speeds I don't hear it. Could it be the air condition and cold weather?

I think I figured a clue ..something to do with the ac. When I turn it off.... no sound.

I also found a video on youtube that sounds similar. Any thoughts?

One RCD300 headunit for sale DM if interested, comes with adapters for antennas and reverse camera

ps: no I’m not throwing away the one I recently installed. Somehow the shipper sent me two units.

Just refuse to pay for the unit and stick to your guns.



Did you pay BA for the unit? whats the status?

I have phillips xtreme vision 130 percent on low beams a long while now. It ok but in the rain...it fails..like driving blindly. What bulbs you all recommend? I was looking at a site deautokey ...saw hid and led kits made specifically for the type of car and housing/ halogen.

So I'm not sure how much whiter the light is from your original bulb... What I can say is that blue light refracts more than red light. So as the light source gets more blue, it is more difficult to see during rain as it diffuses more than a red light.

It will actually feel like you have less visibility in rain with a 5000k bulb vs stock halogen; as the light output is more blue than the yellowish halogen...also because it is hard to discern how far the light reaches in rain (unless you see the reflection in a vehicle in front of you).
I've installed projectors and 5000k bulbs in my Civic before and that was my experience

So i need a bulb with more yellow and higher than the brightness a halogen bulb outputs? Any suggestions of them in refector based?

I don't really have a recommendation... What I can say is that OEM bulbs are 4300k.

So no bulbs would perform well in a rainy night?

OEM hid systems use 4300k. for them to use that color temp means that it is acceptable, but personally I've never tried it

Update
The car is still at BA, initial scans showed the mechatronik throwing a code, upon changing and replacing with a new mech unit problem still persisted, the technicians took down the gearbox and found that it’s the fork that went bad, there’s actually a bushing that falls apart after a while and that causes the mechatronik to stop functioning, so instead they have to do a rebuild on the gearbox.

The Jetta is a nice car I must admit, but some of the problems they come with are definitely not worth it in my opinion.

Well my headliner is starting to fail at the lights in the back seat. What is the average cost to repair/replace? Sunroof type. Is it a hard process?

Not hard. Some diy online.

$2000-2500 over a day or two by a guy in Sando called Michael - 759-7264. My original failed in the same section as yours after 3-3.5 years. Unacceptable.
