    I have a 2015 Passat Limited Edition 1.8T and will be looking to improve handling and suspension compliance. A few extra ponies under the hood won’t hurt. As I can no longer ride my gentleman’s express (2000 Honda VFR800 Interceptor) due to permanent nerve damage in my arm/shoulder, I’m turning...

    Hi. I seem to recall there might have been a VW recall notice, ages ago, for just this issue if I my memory serves me correctly, but am I correct in saying that my 2002 2.0Ltr Passat is prone to leaking as a design issue? Anyhow, so, there's a lot of water getting in from somewhere, and it's...

I currently have summer tires on my 16" alloys that really need to be replaced and Hankook i*cept EVO W310 on my 15" steelies for winter. I have not been impressed at all in that winter tire, particularly on...

I know the manual has the needle bushing, but I am trying to see if the auto crank has a pilot bushing in it or if it is just machined to accept the alighnment pin on the torque converter? By the way we are talking the...

    I'm putting in a new clutch on my B5 TDI and something caught me off guard, There is a pilot bearing in the crank shaft like the gassers have. Is it common practice to replace this pilot bearing when doing a clutch job? What is the best way to get it in and out? Thanks, JOn
