  8. Wanted to share a Philly Indy

    Dealerships and Service
    So last week I finally got my control arm/tierod kit installed along with drivers and passenger side axles, and what a difference it made. The car drives very smooth and is now much tighter. I searched for a good Shop in the Philly area and finally came across Euro Spec Auto Care. The shop...

  13. FYI...Emailed APR to ask if 3.6 ECU upgrade in the works. Will share response.

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I don't see any indication that APR was/is working on anything, but thought I'd ask before I go the Revo or Unitronic route. I'm an APR fan and current user, so I'd like to stick with 'em if I can.

    The Black Hole
    now why the hell would we do that???? If the Obama admin's do this they have no balls and in my opinion are just stupid. Putin is out of his mind and will most likely be back in power again.:thumbdown
