  2. Dealerships and Service
    Called my local dealer to get an upper radiator hose, he tells me he can't one until Thursday because VW is redoing their ordering system. According to this guy they're down nationwide until Wednesday and he couldn't order one now if he wanted. Sounds peculiar...

  8. The B5 Beat
    0645 on Friday morning: I pack up the Passat and head out to the gas station. I mistakenly go to the local place and get their premium, which causes all sorts of knocking for a few miles. I should have known - the Rabbit had the same problem with the same gas. I cruise to a rest stop in deep...

    In case anybody ever wonders, our cars cannot keep close to the V6 turbo in the GN. I casually lined up against one today, neither one of us really nailed it hard off the line, but at about 25 mph the GN hit it hard and it was gone - makes some scary sounds too. I was moving really good, but...

    I knew it would happen sooner or later. The old timer behind the parts counter is gone. His name was Joe. He would not only know my name, but he knew what vehicles I currently had, what parts I liked to use, and even some of the parts I had bought from him in the past. No Computer, he'd...
