4 years and some but still alright. Usual VW issues, rebuilt engine due to piston crack and replaced Mechatronic unit. The car runs well, now reach 60k miles.

I always keep my car in the best resale condition as I could. However with the brand issues in the public domain I not sure what the market is like for a second hand Jetta. I might have to hold on to this for a while

What you can do is use aftermarket hid bulb an ballast...did it on an octavia before...just a matter to allocating the aftermarket ballast elsewhere

Is that halogen you are referring to? I think I phrased the question wrong. Can h7 hid bulb and ballast work? Seeing h7 or d1s labelled on the lens.

Also, took off the headlight to install some h7 led where the drl's are supposed to be. Don't know what happened in there but now my left DRL is on when lights are turned on. Always thought they were coded to be off.[GRIMACING FACE] . On the lens its labelled h7 but that housing is for another bulb type. Think its a 3 prong lock base. Eco, you know what bulb base is that?

Cant use h7 hid...bulb too long...use ds1 or d1s or whatever the oem bulb was...but in aftermarket hid kits....it can use h7 halogen or hid...the 3 prong is the d1s usually

Visited Kerwin in south after Neexis and A172 comments. This is the first individual that I have met who really knows how to scan a car and properly service. There were errors and he went ahead and corrected. My Throttle body was not serviced for 8 yrs (B6 Passat). MPG before speed limit enforced 10.2 l/100km, after speed limit 8.2l/100km. After Kerwin service 6.8l/100km. I did a north south run varying between 80 to 120 km.

This issue was there for years and the car was scanned by a lot who I believed in as they always spoke of the cost factor in acquiring the tools so it must be good etc.... But all before possibly did not understand the results as Kerwin did. I have to say, he really knows what he is doing and would explain once you engage him in conversation.

Great to hear. Due to check him for a service as well.

What was the issue you had for years? Throttle body problems?

Zero problems, just never serviced, all were afraid to touch it. When Kerwin cleaned, there was improved fuel consumption.
Before it was cleaned and I drove at the speed limit of 80km/h, I registered roughly 8.2 l/100km. Post cleaning, I seen < 7 l/100km.

Nice. For me it went from 12km/l to 14 km/l
Post speed limit enforcement, it gets up to 16 km/l

Oops, was just joking. Doubt my 6 speed could be efficient as a 7 speed.

Also direct injection might have your valves caked in baked carbon. Could be affecting efficiency as well.
