The second code might be related to the loose hose I'm hoping. I do have a rough idle, so I'm wondering if I have MAF, O2 sensor, or cat issues. As for the brake booster code, I do notice that my brakes are weak right after I start the car. I also hear weird groaning noises coming from behind the dash after I start the car and after I turn it off that might be related to this. I've tried to find pics or diagrams of where the offending brake booster hose might be on a 3.0 but no luck yet.
Then, my stock xenons are pointing at the ground practically. I tried adjusting them using the screws (with the ignition off and with the key in the on position but the car off) but nothing seems to change. I only have the shareware version of vag-com, so not sure how much I can do about this...
Then there is the problem with the tiptronic that I knew about when I bought the car. Has something to do with the shift cover (already removed) or the circuit board, dealership quoted 300-450 to fix.
I bought this car so that my Mustang could be my project car and this could be my daily driver, but that didn't turn out so well!
