    I'm in Johannesburg, South Africa for 3 weeks of work. Just saw an A5 Sportback in the parking lot. Stopped me dead. BEAUTIFUL looking car. Can't believe they aren't bringing it to the USA... On another note, lots of VW's here, old and new. Really like the looks of the new Polo. Maybe we'll see...

    ... for ever? Or is there going to be a problem, like it may just shut down on me one day? TIA. :salute:
  7. Anything Auto So what do you think this will mean? Will it help clean the air? Will it be the another nail in the coffins of the Big 2.5? Will it kill the new wave of diesels while they're still just a ripple? Anyone care to...

    ... Then stalled. REPORT.... This guy ran over a mattress and decided to keep going. The ensuing jumble finally whipped around enough to put a tear in the gas tank, the subsequent lack of fuel is what finally brought this vehicle to its knees. It had still managed to drive 30 more miles...

    Finally, a new wagon that pushes my buttons the way my B5 did... Too bad we'll never see it in the States. :cry: Aside from minor details, this is the upcoming 2009 European Honda Accord Tourer. A sedan version will be the next Acura TSX, but if history is any indication, we'll never see this...

    I cannot find a non-synthetic 5w40 period. And the only synthetic oil is Mobil that comes in 5W40... Is there an alternative weight that I can use for moderate summers/winters in Virginia in my 2000 V6 passat? Something that won't be 6-7$ a qt.? Thanks.
  11. Anything Auto Finally things are getting interesting. Looks like it has the same 6 liter in the GTO:

    Hello. I have a 98 B5, giving me the RHS stubby mirror. I would like to try having both sides to be stubby, that is I need a LHS stubby mirror. Now, for your RHS driving B5s, that would make your "stubby" passenger mirror on the left. Wanna trade for a full size one? Or can someone get a...

    Ok, so I was under the impression that the S6 was not available in the states. The RS6 is but no S6. However I saw an "S6" on the freeway yesterday. I think I freaked the lady out because I pretty much stopped in the middle of the freeway to let her catch up with me (traffic was pretty dense at...

    Did anyone notice a change in gas mileage ever since they had to change from MTBE (i think thats what it was) to Ethanol additives? I have had a few friends say that their mileage got worse while others say there has been no change. I could almost swear that my miles per tank have dropped and...
