    So when I get my new (used) passat, I was wonder what is some of the top turbos out there. I seen a lot about the eliminators. That sounds like the only options?

    My car has developed a very strange high pitched squeaking noise, and i have trouble identifying where it is coming from. It seems like it originates somewhere behind the drivers seat, every time i go over a bump. Drives me crazy! :crazy: Does anyone have a similar problem? What can that be?

    So im leaving the house yesterday, start her up and start brushing off the snow as she warms up a little bit. As soon as she started she was making a funny scraping noise, kind of like a not oiled chain or something of the sort, i ran in the house, took a video and thought the community might...

    Hello Everyone, The clock in my '03 has gone mad, the hours are turning over as if had the adjustment button turned left. Unfortunately it is not the set button stuck, I could hear it clicking when I try to adjust. It started about two years ago when the clock would jump an hour. It only...

    Just bought the Alpine head unit and am very pleased with the look and sound, but was reading about all the cool features the radio offers. Unfortunately you have to buy a $400 to $500 Imprint box to unlock some of the features (like Time Correction) previous models offered standard. Is the...

    First post so go easy on me guys. I have a 98 1.8T and when I turn the ignition key to the first position I get a really loud clicking from a relay located by my right knee behind the dash (that would be to most of your left knee's because I'm in England - RHD). When I take the key to the second...
