    Just installed Solo Werks S1 Adjustable coilovers on my 2006 2.0t sedan last week and at 45+ mph it's really shaky and the steering wheel wobbles like crazy sometimes on the freeway/highway. Would an alignment fix this? Are the coilovers not all at the same height? Corner balancing? And do...

    There seem to be a few of these used as cars for hire outside my hotel this week, I'll try to get some daytime pics. I have seen a number of B5s that were consistent in features and lighting design to NA versions, this updated B5 looks to borrow some elements from Skoda tooling. The flared...

So, I notice a small leak of coolant after repairing the PVC system and the diverter valve and all the hoses. I...

    I changed my power steering pump because it started making this noise. I popped the hood, and the PS fluid was so hot it was spraying out of the reservoir cap all over the engine. So I swapped out the PS for a new (refurb) one, and completely flushed the old fluid out and replaced with OEM green...

    Hey Passatworlders, Before I seriously got into detailing I used to see this NSX frequently around Downtown Toronto and just drool or chase it in traffic to see it again and drool some more. Years later for me to get the chance to work on this exact same car was a huge pleasure and very...

    After many weeks of fiddling, I just could not continue to deal with my broken plastic level adjuster on my stock lights. So I bought a new pair of headlights and I threw in a HID kit (4500k, DDM slim kit) for good measure.* Now I wonder what my halogen and city lights will look like with the...
