    I was just thinking about some pretty sick thoughts of possibly putting bronze or gold rims on my black Passat! I don't know...I look at bimmers and what not and I see that they don't look that terrible. What do you guys think!? Is it possible to pull gold on black? I ain't even talking...

    Anybody who has used one of these noticed how tight the clearance and position of the installed filter relative to the motor mount? I put one on today but removed it and went with the large Mann filter. There was only 3/16-1/4" clearance when installed for the Napa and I just don't think...

    Will it fit? I have a 98' B5. From Tire Rack, the size of wheels and tires will fit. But I am not sure if there is any details that I should know...(before buying). Things like fitting brakes, shocks, etc. Thanks in advance.

    Bought a Napa Gold filter a while back and recently changed my oil with Mobil One 0w40. Well supposedly with the big ass 1333 you are able to use 5 quarts, at least that was the case on my 01 Jetta. I drained the oil, removed the old filter and let it sit. About 15 minutes later I go back...
