#1594 of 1617 MP3 player interface
Jan 27, 2010 (5:32 pm)
I am in the market for a new MP3 player. My 08 GTI has an iPod adapter in the armrest. I was searching by player features, and I have seen a Sony player that seems to be a better buy than the iPod nano ($60 less for equivalent storage, similar other features). My question is, can you get the full functionality in browsing the folders of the player for anything other than the iPod? The Sony doesn't have a dock adapter, just the USB. Just wondering what works, and how others like their choices.
#1595 of 1617 front license plate

I checked the owner's manual but could find no reference to mounting a front license tag on my 2006 GTI. Has anyone done this? If so, where can it be mounted?

Did you move from a non-front-license-plate state to a front-license-plate state? My front plate was mounted dead center on the front bumper. Is yours the 1.8 or 2.0L engine? (mid year change)
#1597 of 1617 Xenon bulb replacement
Aug 23, 2010 (12:56 pm)
I have to replace the driver's side Xenon bulb in the headlight. I called my local dealer and was quoted a price of $216.00 for the bulb. One bulb. I removed the bad bulb, went on Ebay, and got the exact replacement - a Phillips D2S 85122 - for $40.00. I thought that the VW was a "peoples car". Not many people I know can afford $216.00 for a headlight bulb. Ridiculous and the last VW I'll buy.
#1598 of 1617 Difference of entry to back seat
Jan 16, 2011 (4:50 pm)
Hello everyone close to purchasing a GTI Autobahn model for my son our concern is if there is any difference when some one has to enter the back seat of 2 door model between the cloth version or leather seats mainly concerned about the seat belt on how to clear it out of the way for passenger. It seems a little flimsy on the cloth model was just wondering if same set up for the leather version with the control for seat belt. thanks for any info you can pass along

The Mazda2 is way-way smaller than the 2006 GTI, as an alternative might I suggest a new Golf TDI.
