    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Loss of power on what as your car spec says 0. We do have all VW models listed in the main forum menu, couldn't you find yours or you couldn't be bothered to look?

    Take it back, could be in limp mod but without a DCT scan it very hard to advice you.

    They have probably left a vacuum hose off or plumbed a couple the wrong way around, it is easy to do and a mistake anyone can make BUT they should have noticed this on road test and not returned it to you like that, very sloppy quality control.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
