    Hi All, I just produced a video called Speed Kills Your Pocketbook, and it's about how the overaggressive enforcement of speed limits that are too low only serves to give the government our money. Also, many of the powers that be have turned a blind eye to limits that are too low. It's full of...

    Hi Everyone. I'm new to the site. I ran multiple searches but didn't find an answer to my problem. I have a 2008 Passat 2.0 . The driver side radiator fan is running continuously (including after the car is turned off). It drained the battery a few minutes ago. The passenger side fan does not...

    Hi, I have a 2005 B5.5 with a Viper 5701 installed. I gave up my valet key for it to work. The issue I have is if I ever have the A/C on, and I use the remote starter to start up the car, the car will start but a few minutes after I hear the fan kick in to cool the radiator the car will stall...

    So, either this thing runs much longer than it's supposed to after I shut off my engine, or I need a new battery that won't die when it does. I'm attaching a picture (not my engine) highlighting the part that I'm talking about. I can hear it run when I'm at idle as well and I didn't before the...

    So, I go out this moring intent on hitting a junkyard for some cheap B5.5 stuff. Start the car. Cranks and doesn't catch. Think bad fuel pump. Check fuses and relays, good. Its -13F and I don't feel like staying outside of a VAG_COM scan. I rent a car (2007 g35X :thumbup:). Its ~0F so i...

    On my 5-speed 2003 GLS, I used to be able to nail 34mpg on the highway for hundreds of miles when I was running my stock suspension on 15" OE Wellingtons and original rubber. But after upgrading the suspension and much heavier OE 18" wheels, I noticed on a roadtrip out to West Texas tonight that...

    So I'm leaving the track, which in my mind is one of the most exciting events while driving. At one time there can be anywhere from 20-30 modded cars on the road at one time. I pull out onto the long strip of 2 lane highway outside of the speedpark, and at first no one wanted to bite. Then in...

    I was heading home yesterday evening going the 'round-about-way to avoid Friday traffic. Suddenly the car in front of me, I'm about 2 car lengths behind, slams on his brakes and starts fishtailing. I start tapping my brakes for the van behind me, in my rearview I see that he's not watching the...
