  1. The Showroom
    In case anyone was considering doing this... I could not be happier with the end results. the color match and texture are dang near perfect even up close. That said, I know not everyone may like the black sides or just having the sides and not the rest of the kit or the fact that I just used...

    I just picked up my B6 last week. The light output is very low. I've had cars that had DRLs that were at half power then when you turn on your lights, it goes to full power or switches over to the other bulbs (not sure, cant remember). It seems like my lights are stuck at half power and the...

    Unless I'm blind I can't find a write-up for front suspension (control arms) replacement. Seems a bit odd seeing it's one of the most problematic items on our cars. I have some time to play around if we think their is need for this kind of write-up, let me know. I can also incude axle...

    Seem to have my windshield washer nozzles freeze up with every cold snap. Temperatures between 10 and 20 degrees. Wondering if it's possible to swap out the nozzles with the heated ones. ?? Unfortunately, my '06 came with just about everything else. Would have been nice for them to have been...

    So, I'm pretty confused here. I'm running off a stock HU and recently purchased a Sony 1200w amp, and a 10"X2 sub, and a Scosche CAP, and a new Scosce LOC. I know the amp and sub were working great 'cause I heard them blasting away in my friend's car on several occasions. Basically, I have a...

    I'm getting ready to send a sample to Blackstone and considered requesting a TBN analysis, however, I topped up my oil before a long trip about 1000 miles before I pulled the sample. I'm thinking that a TBN would not be very accurate due to the added oil with minimal mileage. Is my...
  8. B5 Garage
    Are these little gas savers really worth getting and do they add this so called extra 10-25 hp?? Or would I just contribute to their scam?

    With a nice sunny day yesterday, I decided to tackle the front end of SNKVNNM. The big thing was the windsplitter but to install the windsplitter, the bumpers must come off since this is what it's bolted to. Not as noticable was the addition of the rubber grommets on the body, that the...

    RE: I have a 2001 B5 auto 1.8T - I have a Euroswitch and I bent pins TFL and 56D I have been searching everywhere on this site and cannot find my answer. I am thinking that since the low and high beams are both H7 now, I loose my fogs. My OEM highs are H3 (I think as they have 3 prongs whereas...

    I have an 07 Wolfsburg I am adding a Nav unit to. I bought the unit new on Ebay from a private seller. Will the dealer know that I added that unit to the car if or when it ever needs serviced or if it needs any kind of update?

    Hi, yesterday I changed the oil in a family members 1.8T and noticed it was an inch and a half high on the dipstick, after changing I took the hoses of the intercooler and got about a quarter quart out of the lower hose and cooler. I can tell oil has been up to the TB so I'm guessing at least...
  13. Anything Auto
    As mentioned in my previous post, with SNKVNNM on jackstands, I have ample time ( 2+ weeks) to work on things that needed to be done. The nose and tail emblem was one of those things, as was the license plate electrical. Tonight, I tacked the first roll bar trim rings. This does make it look a...
