    So I do like looks and I want more performance. Coned intakes look cool and sound cool (with forge 007 DV's) from what I've seen on yt. :violin: "Cold" air cone intake is sort of hated in here, people suggest using some heat shields etc... Past couple hours I went through a lot of topics and I...

    I have a 2013 Passat SE. I have been using the SD feature for all of my music, and it has been awesome. Here is where I am stuck. I purchased two new albums. I took the SD card from the car, added the two albums, and loaded the SD card back into the radio. After it loads, it just has...
