    Gotta love it when new ideas and innovations come to an otherwise tried-and-true product. The Kimblade Wiper Blade is trying to bring an end to crappy, streaking, chattering wipers once and for all, and from what we can see they just might be onto something...

    Don't do business with them. First time i called was quoted about 450 for pads, rotors and a caliper. The guy kept on trying to upsell me and accidentally put more expensive ones in when i asked for something different. Long story short he hangs up on me after i tried telling him to stop and I...

    I don't know if gas companies matter or they all have the same quality fuel? So where do you fill your tank for your B5 Passat? I noticed on Lukoil gasoline car runs good, but I don't want to make KGB and Russians rich, so what is the best from your experience?

    So a couple of weeks ago I was on my way to the store to pick up some compound and polish to get scratches out of my paint, then I got rear ended. Ironic right? Also, the lady that hit me said she didn't brake in time because she was distracted by another accident that had already happened in...

    I used to have an alien window controller back in the day but they seem to be long gone. Is there another company that someone may know of that makes the plug and play kit any more? Just was really convenient to be able to put my Windows up and down with the car alarm remote.

    It's that time again for us to change our company vehicle and I am once again recruiting help from the automotive authorities otherwise known as PW members. I've had a few great company cars in the past (330i & Outback XT) and a few dogs (most notably a Dodge Charger 2.7L & Ford Windstar -...

    I have my car in for some body work and the shop and the "insurance co" are disputing about hours of labor. The dispute is over about 3 hours of labor, which the "insurance co" thinks is not necessary. Does anyone have advice on how to make the insurance company cooperate and pay up? It seems...
