    What did you replace with? And how is it holding up? I know several of you did this, and where very happy with it at the time. A year has gone by, are you still happy? Hows the noise? I'll be in a Muffler shop tomorrow, as a plus I may have this done.... Thanks!

    I sent a nice e-mail to VW on their website last Friday inquiring when they plan on replacing the defective coilpacks. Told them that I was hesitant on taking any long trips with the chance of being stranded in the middle of nowhere. Also stated that I've already had one defective coilpack...

    How long have the pollen filters lasted for everyone? Seems to me like it ought to be longer than 5 months! I took it out and it smells really moldy and it is making the whole car stink. Isn't the filter supposed to stay dry where it is situated? Mine must have gotten wet. IF I decide to...

    I took my car in to the dealer last week becuase (among other things) I noticed a pink crusty build-up around the ends of the hoses that are connected to the oil cooler. To my surprise, the dealer replaced the oil cooler under the powertrain warranty! So, if yours is not looking to good, go...
