    Does anybody in the Raleigh have a Vag-com that can help me get my ECU to work again? I changed my battery, now my car is undrivable. It was fine before the battery change, but the ECU dumped all of its data when my battery died. Looks like I need to do a throttle adapt. Thanks in advance!!!

    After moving to the Raleigh area, I was recommended over to BFI from a couple of guys on the Vortex. I looked at their website and figured what the heck. I took my 98 Passat over there to have some brake work done and some minor maintenance. I brought my own parts (I was going to do it myself...

    Been meaning to acquire one of the oil-suckers to do my own oil changes (from the top), but procrastination finally led to realization that that would have to wait for the _next_ oil change. Had tried Leith for my 10k mi service, and wasn't impressed (9 return trips before everything was...
