    I have read in some of the threads where some posters say "still running closed loop" or "not running closed loop".. So whats that all about?? I would have thought that since the car has a closed loop system it would run in a closed loop mode all the time to maximise fuel ecconomy and power...

    Voila! You can monitor STFT (Short Term Fuel Trims) and Open Loop vs. Closed Loop operation with VAG-COM blocks 088 or 099 (they both give the same info): STFT = Block 088, Field #3: O2 Sensor Control % OL/CL = Block 088, Field #4: O2 Sensor Control Status ------------------------------------...

    The metal loop on my 2-month-old switchblade key just snapped off. Has this happened to anyone else? Was I doing something wrong by attaching the key to my keyring with this loop -- it seemed like that's what it was there for. Is it possible to replace the loop or do I need a whole new...
