    How reliable has it been. May replace mine with a 2015 Golf Wagon in a few months. Wasnít sure about emissions issues from an engine code perspective. Not really worried about the emissions

    So far so good. Timing belt needs to be done at @120k and requires some special tools. I found a local Indy to do mine. I have DSG and the fluid is every 40k. Oil is 10k.
    Not a bad little car (but not that fun to drive ). Mine is under the recall extended warranty so Iíve not done a tube or anything.

    I'm on same boat as you, I'm driving a 2015 Golf TDI as well. I've been itching to get the KermaTDI tune to make the car more interesting but I don't want to void the warranty.

    Blackstone Labs recommended me to change the oil every 15,000 miles based on the test results. I commute about 100 miles per day on the highway.

    I just got my first blackstone report back today. They recommend I go 12k on the next oil.

    My 2003 had a Kerma tune, their full three inch turbo back, and a gli 6 speed in it... the car wave so much fun for what it was, and made all the right noises

    So did the disa and ignition system work and car ran great for a few days... but its back to being a dog; not sure but I suspect a fuel system issue.

    Anyone know about the reliability of the fuel pumps in this car... tempted to just add fuel system rework to the list of mechanical parts that need to be changed.

    Disconect the maf sensor and see if the car runs any better.

    Also the fuel filter is a preventative maintenance item.

    Just to add to what Vas said, going beyond 150k miles on a fuel pump isnít advisable...

    He said fuel filter, so which one are we talking about. I only have about 20k on the filter.

    Also went ahead and disconnected the MAF, car ran smoother and seemed to have a bit more torque downlow. Not sure what that means in this case
