    I bought a used W8 with coil pack problems a month ago. Fixed coils and changed tranny+motion fluid and both tie rod ends (one was frozen=PITA!) This car is sweet. I liked my B5 wagon better - It had more of a squatted down look, but the power this wagon has makes me smile every time I step on...

  15. My sick wiper blade fixation

    Anything Auto
    It isn't that I buy super-expensive blades, it's that both blades must, -MUST- clear as much glass as possible without destroying themselves, the wiper motor, or the paint. I CAN NOT drive a car without checking to see how much wasted space there is due to undersized blades. I have had this...
