    Hi all, I just installed a new timing belt on my 2000 Passat 1.8T. (I followed some DIY instructions I got off here a long time ago.) After I got the belt on, I checked my alignment marks on the gears and belt and then ran it around by hand a bunch of times til they lined up again...

    I was rear ended tonight. Lower speed. Rear of car has scratches on bumper and the other car's paint. But no cracks or bent metal I can find ...but it is raining so not spending lots of time crawling around. Drives same as before. Exhaust is loud, noise is from front. So I look under the...

    Okay PW. My 2001 V6 b5 with 90K got rear ended this Thursday. Exactly 1 week after I paid to get my blauparts timing belt kit installed. This was my first VW and I love it. The adjuster will be looking at it this week and I expect it will be declared a total loss. Damage includes the bumper...

    I've been in the process of sanding down my rear bumper, and obtained all the materials needed to re-paint it. It's pretty much a pain in my ass, well my back, technically, since I have a disc herniation. Well, today in the drive thru at Dunkin Donuts, some girl in a Jeep Wrangler rear ended...

    Went out for a drive, just for fun. (In a pair of gym shorts, and only shorts...) Slightly rainy out tonight, and while sitting at a red light, the '95 Blazer behind me didn't stop soon enough. No pictures of his vehicle, too dark, but I have a few of mine. No injuries, but my baby isn't...

    Well I was going to pull into a parking spot head first on a one way street. I put on my emergency lights. She was desperate and tried to pass on my left side. She hit my tail light on the left and scraped the bumper as she was passing. The cops are currently on their way. But taking forever...

    Getting rear ended ended up being a blessing in disguise. Yeah, it was a pain to have a rental for a week, to keep contacting the body shop, and to make sure everything turned out right. But in the end, it has turned out pretty well. :) Since the collision center wouldn't do some of the things...
