    Hello All, i would like to share my experience with you. I bought a (late)2006 2.0 FSI Passat Highline last March, 121,000 km on the clock.

    I'm just curious if anyone has purchased a new car this way and how you went about it. My friend is considering a new car but still has 1 year left on the loan with Capital One. I suggested maybe speaking to Capital One about financing a new car, thinking they may give him a better rate as a...

    2003 AWM 1.8T. About a month ago I unclogged my PCV system and changed some of the parts to fix a vacuum leak. Two weeks ago I checked the oil and noticed there were tons of tiny tiny microscopic bubbles on the dipstick. Also the oil was black. I've used Mobil 1 0w-40 full synthetic for almost...

    I just came across a couple of youtube videos of people painting their cars using this Plasti-Dip spray. I would never paint my car with it but I though it might work for badges and what not. Anyone ever use it?

    There was a bone stock, 2010 GT-R there that was running the course in 0:52-0:55. I ran the course 11 times, DNF'd six, and ran 1:08, 1:07, 1:09, 1:06, and 1:03 when I completed. And I didn't hit a single cone. =D My DNF's were all because I couldn't "see" the course on two different corners...

Got me wondering, did VW ever make improvements to the pickup screen, etc that would have helped? Or...
