    I have had the cable (off Ebay) and the free 'lite' version for some time and just now paid the $99 to register it. I got the email confirmation with the order # that says "Electronic Delivery via E-Mail" I just tried plugging in my car but don't notice any new things I can do. How long does...

    I have had a 2002 1.8t manual wagon for the past 3 years that has been a lot of fun. Well, the motor took a turn for the worse; turbo failure (stage 1+ unitronic), ran motor dry, engine speed sensor failure, yada yada. So I would like to use that motor as a guinea pig for my first rebuild and...

    Hey guys, I would like to get rid of the stocky front license plate frame/bumper as I don't need to use it and it ruins the look I want to get. Is there anyway I can remove it from the bumper or do I need to get a whole new OEM bumper that comes without the license plate frame?:icon_eek: Thanks

    I was wondering if I could get the frame for the license plate on the front bumper so I could have a nice clean front end. Can I remove this or do i need to buy a whole new bumper?

    Rare outside of Eurozone. I imported a few of these about 4 years ago, this is my personal frame. Undamaged, better than new condition (because I protected it with clear coat), with mounting screws and hardware. Installation is a little futzy, but once it's on, it's on. And it looks...

    Since this is damage to the frame and nothing that be taken off the vehicle and repaired I was wondering how expensive this could be? I don't think it needs any paint just needs to be beaten out? AHHHH! What should I be prepared for? http://s1273.photobucket.com/user/rw3000/library/B7

    Just noticed today that the fabric which was apparently glued to the frame inside the inner roof liner had come free and it looks like the adhesive has given up. I guess the effect of the sun and ridiculous inside temperatures that the car is subjected too has exasorbated this apparent issue...

    so after pumping almost 4 gallons of water out of my carpets and pads and pulling down the headliner, I found that the sunroof was the source of my leak. I blew some air through my front sunroof drains, but couldn't find where the rear drains were so I took it to the dealer to clear the lines...

    So I'm dropping the oil pan in a 2005 Passat. Going to get the kit to do a complete sludge cleanup from ECS. What I'm wondering is I've seen guides talking about dropping the sub frame, and lifting the engine. Is this procedure you do one or the other or both. Jacks kind of scare me and I have...

    I have this code that keeps coming up on my car. It is P2181. I posted about it a while back when I replaced my coolant sensor. As it says in that thread changing the temp sensor seemed to work for a while but now the code is back. I bought a device called an ELM327 bluetooth adapter on eBay...

    Hi all. I've been looking at a lot of conventional OBDII scanners recently. I recently decided on an Equus 3130 which has live data and freeze frame if I were to buy one. They run $127 +tax from Amazon. However just today I've discovered that there are OBDII scanners which interface with a...

    Excellent condition. I bought a Ct. car and Ga doesn't require a front plate. I'm wanting to do a euro plate and this has to get out of the way. This is OEM to the car with factory Blue Anthracite Pearl (LC7V) paint. Factory 2-piece rivets included and in excellent condition also. Asking...

    So I got a set of track density front sub frame bushings from 034 after my rear sub frame mounting bracket collided with a unforseen and abnormally elevated manhole. Needless to say the manhole was the victor and my braket was left in shambles. that being said how much labour am I looking at...

    saw this on the VORTEX figured i would post here FYI just in case anyone else is having this issue. -If-you-re-tired-of-your-clunking-subframe...... This might be the cause of your issues, its worth a replacement anyway for peace of mind this is only one side of the car you should change...
