Bought cheap Aux adaptor that is plug and play with the mk4 nav, basically like the BMW kit but half the price and no aux mounting plate.

Which was perfect for me as this is what I wanted to do anyways:

Put my rebuild valve body back in.
Refilled, cleared coded. And this hung is shifting so smooth and crisp. Can't wait till it's fully relearned it's shifting.

If you need your valve body and solenoid rebuilt, world valve bodies out of Ok is the shiznit.

Wash, wax, and restored the plastic trim.


Investigated the accelerator pedal issue....


Ordered various parts on line (btw, does this forum have a supporting vendor?).

I do... :D How much do they charge? Do they use ZF parts (don't know if aftermarket solenoids are available)? Warranty?

Lifetime warranty on the work.
Solenoids are redone/replaced.
All ZF and sonax parts. Rebore and new pistons if needed. Tested and returned.
Turnaround was stupid quick.
Was about $640.

Yep. Sonnax wants like $1800 for a rebuild with a $700 core refund.
What got me, was just how helpful these guys were. The eBay says OH, but it went to Ok.
I wanna say he got it Tuesday and it was done Wednesday evening. Shipped Thursday and I got it back yesterday and put it in.
