    how does the B5 engine retard or advance valve timing? ive had this question for a while now and hoped to find a good answer but no dice so far. it's about valve timing. so the timing belt straight run from the crankshaft pulley to the exhaust cam sprocket pretty much determines that the...

    Are those the OEM pads like some of their products are for VWs? Napa has PBR, Pagid, Textar...but prices are sky high. So wanting to see if the Beck Arnley ones are okay, or if I just need to order some online.

    They are running the 5 qts of Syntec and a Purolator filter for $24.99 deal again. They also have an $8 off 2 Bosch Icon wipers deal. By me they are $19.99/each so after the $8 off and the Bosch $15 rebate all in it cost me $16.98 plus tax and a stamp. Not bad, IMO.
