Even as grind-y and impact-y as it might sound and feel, it can be 100% fixed by adding OE differential fluid.

Re: Comprehensive Avin Avant 3 Thread

I can't think of any time that waiting for the MKIV to start up has bothered me, but 30 seconds sounds like a long time.

Re: The perfect daily driver?

I want that gloss black trim right now.

It's amazing how good a mint headlight lens and new clear corners can look. And I don't even like the facelifted sedan front.

Same question. Can it reset airbag lights and tell you which specific corner wheel speed sensor is bad, etc? What about SMG bleeds or re-learns?

At 32k miles and factory stick, you could probably still turn around and sell it for over 20k if you exposed it nationwide. Even in grey interior.
