    So I replaced a whole bunch of $hit. Absolutely everything on the front end except axles that look ok. Also replaced motor mounts and transmission mounts. Brakes and caliper service. Inner outter tie rod ends. Absolutely everything was replaced with Fabbi parts from ECS. Problem is, car...

    I recently had a set of ST coilovers installed and I'm having trouble getting the rear low. The instructions said to put the adjustment collar on top but my buddy put it on the bottom.

    2002 v6 FWD One of my flex pipes went out. I ordered the 2.25 universal replacement from ecstuning and took the car to a shop to get them welded in. They claim the downpipe is 1.75" :crazy: and the cat is 2.25" so they would have to change the daimeter on it somewhere. they also claim that the...

    I know my question has been listed before indirectly by others. Well her it is and I do welcome and appreciate any help. My 1999 1.8T sat for almost 2 months. Prior to that it was fine. When I went to start the battery was dead. I jumped it and it sounded like a deisel engine, severe...

    Anyone have any ideas how the hell to get leverage to get the six inner bolts off the axle????????? I'm pulling my hair out here. Multiple trips to the store because the measurements in the write-up were wrong for wrench and socket sizes, my axle won't come completely out without popping the...

    I'm posting this mainly to vent, but I would appreciate any technical help and suggestions. For some, my tiptronic tranny was leaking fluid. This was mainly due to the many dents in the battered trans pan from being so low and driving carelessly. A few months back I had the entire pan replaced...

    I'm not really a n00b, per se (not that there's anything wrong with that :)), but I am incredibly frustrated with the search tool in the BB's current form. Basically, common search terms like AEB, V6, ECU, PCV, and A8 are always excluded from the search, which leaves ZERO options except to post...

    I started an audiobook on my iPod. It plays through a Sony CPS-9C cassette adapter in my stock Monsoon HU. The sound quality is excellent, no complaint there. However, every few minutes, the whole tape deck will power off! I can power right back up after a few seconds. I tried cleaning the...

    F1 needs to get their act together, are you listening Bernie? It's bad enough that the races now are decided by attrition, luck of timing, etc. - anything but actual racing-, i am tired of seeing a large part of the field eliminated in the first turn of the race! All for keeping the...
