    I've got to say that I am truly surprised how much I'm enjoying my '14 Passat SE/roof 1.8T. Great road manners and the 1.8T really responds very well with little coaxing. No real lag to speak of, and very smooth. I enjoy the understated styling, and to me this car exudes a high level of fit and...

    I have a prestone coolant tester that I bought from AutoZone. The coolant tester tells you the freeze point of your coolant and water mix. What the coolant tester does not tell you is the ratio of coolant to water is in your mix. I would like to know how to determine that. I couldn't find...

    I've compiled a few different versions of this information but i figured it would be best to run it past everyone here to find any errors or missing parts Thanks

    Hey, I was driving by the bank and the big sign had the temp on it. It varied from my thermostat on the dash. It seems to verify what I have been suspecting that my thermostat is running a few degrees hot. Is there anything weird about this?

    Has anyone here ever tried to independently verify the accuracy of the fuel consumption indicator? I have no reason to suspect that mine is not accurate. (The fuel consumption on my '02 wagon behaves as one might expect and the values seem reasonable.) I'm just curious, and figured that...

    So I had gone to the dealer to see about the inserts(fairings) that go into the W8 bumper for the dual exhausts and they could not find any such part number, so the dealer said lets just order the bottom lower unpainted W8 valence or lower spoiler and change it out with yours. Mine being my 2004...

    The wear sensor light on my wife's '02 variant is coming on intermittantly. The car only has 25K miles so I don't think the pads are too far gone. How accurate are these sensors anyway? Should I go to the effort of pulling the wheels and measuring the brake pad thickness now or wait until...

    I had a CV boot failure the other day so I've got 2 kits arriving tomorrow from ECS. I'm going to replace both outer boots this weekend. In the mean time after carefully degreasing the entire boot exterior with mineral spirits right up to the crack edge, I sealed the 2" opening with some...

    Noticed that the Average mileage (the one that doesn't reset after couple of hours) is always "optimistic" when compared to the amount that I actually pump into the tank. Even on a "highway only" trip, the difference was ~5%. Much worst during daily city trips (~15% difference for last...
