    Found an 03 Audi a6 in the yard with an fairly new set of front brakes. Upon further inspection I realized it had the newer ATE calipers rather than the HP2s found on the S4s. (I'm actually glad since I have a set of s4 HP2 s on my A4 and have brake clearance backspace issues with my custom...

    I'm potentially purchasing a set of wheels and the seller said he found this weird artifact...He says you can't feel it, maybe a discoloration of the clear coat? Anyone have an idea of what it is? I don't mind if its a cosmetic defect, I just want to make sure its not a integrity issue. Thanks...

    I've never noticed getting the "snowflake" outside of temps in the 30's or below... A few days ago, I got it with a temp of 41F. :icon_eek: Curious if I've won the internet, or if anyone else has experienced this before? :confused:

    This was an awesome idea and whoever did it, really pulled it off well. This is the only good shot I got when I saw them stopped at a light. Looks like Batman and Batwoman (or maybe Catwoman). I didn't get a chance to get close enough to see the occupants costumes. The rest of these were...

    Was driving to church this week and saw a smoldering Passat on the side of the road. On the way home I stopped to take a look (and some pics). Looks like a late '99 to early '01 from what I could tell from a quick glance. Had an auto transmission. I wonder if this was related to the fuel...

    Hey there, Back in April i was lucky enough to get myself a Passat (55 plate), it's a 2.0L 140BHP TDI SPORT. I love it to bits, it's miles ahead of my old Mondeo Zetec (although I thought that pulled better to be fair, but it was falling apart so it had to go). It's so smooth and the interior...
