    OM-effing-G — the waiting game is killing me this week. Little odds and ends have been arriving at my home, the final pieces to the puzzles that are my coil over and new wheel installations. Spacers, summer tires, hub-centric adapters... a steady stream of goodies to go with the PSS9s I...

    I recently put in a 2 DIN DVD/GPS with DVB-TV and am trying to determine if the signals from this all-in-one antenna are strong enough to have it spray painted to match the car and replace the stock AM/FM whip aerial. But so far I have been reluctant to drop the head liner or to install it to...

    Border crossing for hong kong and china sucks ballz. I mean the lineup and waiting is just terrible. How come foreigners get lumped up with chinese nationals?

    traverse motors located in traverse city michigan. (the only dealer for northern michigan) really disappoints me. example: took my key to dealer to have fob reprogrammed. they had done this for the same key a few months back. paid them $52.40 which is the normal program fee and they not only...

    Is it possible to have too much vacuum? My boost gauge is reading 25hg. it used to be about 19-20hg, and about 25 when decelerating. Now it's 25hg all the time. Any ideas? And wouldn't a vacuum leak lower the number, not raise it?

    I recently got rid of my 2002 B5.5 sedan and started driving what was my wife's 2004.5 B5.5 Variant. The Variant has the mirrors with the blinkers built into them. They are a different shape than the ones on my '02; they are a kind of "pod" shape, and they sit a bit higher. The shape of these...

    Oh the weather outside is frightful... and ice is so delightful... Winter storm yesterday, and the snow piled up. Was coming to a stop light probably not going any faster than 10 mph, and hit a big patch of ice. The ABS went crazy, and I was like Kristi Yamaguchi and skated right on in to the...

    I filled up with Hess 93 Octane last nigt. I must have got a bad batch, because otherwise their gas is shit :thumbdown. My gas mileage has dropped 3mpg average:icon_eek:, and even if I tap the throttle my mileage dropped below 30:confused:. Anyone else experience shitty gas from them?

    What gives with eBahn reader for searching out part #'s. I thought this would be a cool little tool to help out in this forum. WRONG! Program sucks ass. Anybody with me on this one. Or am I not getting the whole package?

    My car has been egged twice in the past 1.5 weeks. I live in a gated buliding but my parking spot faces the alley and the only protection is an 8' wrought iron fence, easy to get eggs, paint gun pellets etc through. The thing that really pisses me off is that my car is the only car that gets...
