Best things to change on the MK5 regardless of tune level to ensure reliability:
1) PCV valve - either new OEM or aftermarket PCV delete system. The PCV is useless on the 2.0tfsi
2) Diverter valve for a rev D or G - replaces poor diaphragm system to piston type
3) Cam follower for fuel pump - canít stress the value of a $35 to ensuring you donít have a $3k bill for a rooted engine

We can help with all those part if required. Check out www.alittletuningco.nz

Mk4 Golf - Bora - New Beetle / Change l/km to l/100km
« Last post by kdhmacman on January 19, 2019, 08:29:53 pm »
Hi all,

I have just got a mk4 (2003) VW Golf GT Wagon 1.8t,

I currently have a reading for l/km but I would like to change it to l/100km.

I have been told that a VCDS can do that but I'm not sure?

I would also like to add a Distance to Empty which I have been told I can add too....

Does anyone have experiance in this or know how to do it?

I am in Wellington :)

Thanks in Advance

My dad worked for Fiat then VW/Audi in africa. I also just love cars, my parent used to say i used to watch out the window for hours (we lived next to a main road in Lusaka) and could tell what kind of car it was at night by its lights. :D

He had a fiat 127, 121 & 132, when he started working for VW we had a 4dr MK1 CLi that he thrashed and loved to bits, he also got given a mk2 which had an awesome blue interior. He didn't like that much I don't think as he then bought the MK1 off the company and drove only that till we left for NZ. I've always had an affinity with VW's since.

If you want them gone list them at the lowest price that will cover your time etc.
Then hope more then one person wants them and they bring the sale price up.

In my experience, the more watchers, the less chance of selling.
The cheapskates put a watch on and wait for a low 'buy now' offer after the listing has expired.
I have even had them ask for an offer..............my response to that is to offer at an increased price.

Well I guess it's all about where you see the value. Is it the wheels or the tyres? If it's the tyres then strip them and try and sell them, then maybe see what the scrap dealer will give you for the wheels. I wouldn't list at $1 on trademe because I don't list anything I think is less than $50. Any price less than that is not worth dealing with time wasters and sorting out freight etc.  I would rather just dump it. Watchers mean nothing. Money talks and bullcrap walks, as they say.
If you keep them complete then chances are you may sell to someone who needs to move a rolling body.
If you need them gone then just dump them.
Its a same they don't suit a  MK2.
These are just my thoughts to your question. Not the answer. (I think $300 is a fair price).

I'm not too worried - I got a 3 year warranty with it, I'll wear that out and then sell it :P

This ^

What schattenblau says is basically true unfortunately.

However, depending on how much the car cost, you could gamble on it. It may never have an engine problem again. Or, get a tune (APR etc) that fixes the running lean issues. But that would cost as much as the difference between the mk5 twin charge and a mk5 GTI.

So in summary, sell it and scrape up the extra to get a GTI.  ;)
