GTI Oil consumption

Hey folks

How does it look for you GTI owners running the 0w-20 Oil, in regard to Oil consumption?

Just trying to find a normal level...

Re: Gti engine Sound

Well

Hooked up with a guy nearby who has a GPF fitted gti, 20.000km.

His engine sounds just like mine.
Guess thats how they should sound.

Re: Gti engine Sound

Thx man.

The knocking is from the engine.
I do also hear pops from the exhaust.

This is annoying.

Gti engine Sound

We have a 2018 pre-GPF GTI+ and a 2019 GPF equipped GTI+ in our household - neither make any untoward drivetrain noises under any circumstances. Can you double check that. Hot engine. Stationary and gently rev from 1700-2500, up and down Would be very usefull. Maybe even a video of it. Ps. Mine is ...

Re: Gti engine Sound

It might be that you're around the threshold of Budack cycle/Otto cycle switchover, which seems to be around 20kW output on the performance monitor screen. Can't say I've felt or heard the switchover myself, I just notice the instant mpg increase significantly as a step change below 20kW output. We...

Re: Gti engine Sound

Vw has looked at the car. They say it’s the camshaft adjustment devices. But since no errors appear, they wont change any parts.

I would say that the knocking is quite easy to hear.

Gti engine Sound

Hi guys. Any bid on where this sound (knocking) comes from? It’s loudest around 2000 rpm if i feather the throttle. There are no bad sounds at cold start. The knocking is also not present when the enigne is started and in “cold start mode”. https://youtu.be/Zv3IBkLVmx8 Sent from my iPhone using Tapa...

I bought the PS4's on monkeyhanger's recommendation. Would recommend anyone else do the same, they have improved the car ten fold. And having the protective lip is a benefit!
Any more pictures of the car with 225’ ?

Re: Removal of buttons (SS, pdc etc.)

I'm assuming you pull up the DSG surround which contains the Start / Stop button, thus giving you access to the side of the buttons. MJ On the Scirocco (for which I switched out the manual normal gearknob for the far better feeling R variant), you put the selector into an upright position (like 3rd...
