More European Crap

I swapped my fun car the other day to a 2017 GTI, pretty damn fun, and quick to boot. Interested to see how this one goes given it's the most technology packed vehicle I've ever owned. Definitely very futuristic compared to the Sable, lol

Contrats on the new ride!!

Did VW ever improve the reliability of their COPs? Used to be a joke that taking a road trip in a gas powered VW meant taking along several replacement COPs to replace the ones that failed during the trip.

Thank you! And as far as I can tell, yes. This has the EA888 Gen 3 2 liter turbo. Haven't heard anything bad about it yet, other than the usual sooty valves from being direct injected.
