Hi all. I'm sure that this question has come up before, but I've only had my GTI for 2 weeks, so please forgive me if it's a repeat. I just installed my K&N filter, and I've read at various sites that it's a good idea to reset the CPU in order to take full advantage of the improvement. What do you all think? Reset the CPU, or just drive on? Thanks.

Yay. Now I have a mod. Okay, so it's an air filter. Give me time.

Remember, a driven dub is a happy dub.

you could do that, the system updates every 50 miles though, you could just drive it and the computer will deal with the new airflow stats on its own, just a k&n filter doesnt provide enough of a power improvment to tell the difference by reseting the computer.

In fact on my 2002 gti i didnt notice any improvment at all with a k&n drop in, but its nice not to have to buy a new filter every 3000 miles!
