As soon as I get rolling to about 5 mph the automatically locking doors...

    Just so I can....I will say it again.... I frickin hate the Key Fob. Five times now the key has malfunctioned and I have had to utilize the dinky, plastic key, manual access. Unfortunately, the little plastic cover has to be popped off. It has a fragile, snap mechanism that keeps it in...

    As the title suggests, my g-popshop turbo is toast. I pulled it to do some porting and found that the turbine tips have been wilted. If that wasn't good enough, I also have a nice crack in my $400 (canadian) 034 manifold. So other than plain old bitching, I wanted to see if anyone has any good...

    My wife's '02 1.8T variant is shuddering and has a CEL. My guess is that it's another coilpack gone bad. Unfortunately, everyplace is closed so I can't check the codes. I checked the colipacks and three are 06b905115J and one is 06b905115H. IIRC, the "H" style is has had more problems which...
