  1. The Showroom
    So, this past weekend as you know was Southern Worthersee 2013 and while down there, the group I was with decided that we needed to plasti-dip my wheels. Luckily, there was a booth selling all sorts of bright colors so after a lot of peer pressure, I said "Go for it." The result was a bright...

    So theres this guy i know, he goes to the same school as me. the typical teenage subaru driver, 2.5 non turbo, automatic, VT boost stickers and New England subaru stickers, fart-can etc. I feel like i need to let him know that its not a healthy lifestyle to be a ricer. How should i go about...
  3. Wax On, Wax Off
    Had my wife pick me up from a bike ride recently. I'm hot and sweaty from the ride, get into the passenger seat. Get home, wipe the seat down with a damp rag to get any sweat off the leather. A few days ago, I see large dark areas covering half of the seat bottom and most of the right/left...

    WTF? http://www.nitrobahn.com/news/porsche-cajun-suv-confirmed-arriving-by-2013/ Does it run on Frank's Hot Sauce? Will it be part of a joint-effort with NASCAR and be in a series of it's own? I wonder if the options list includes bad teeth, a banjo and the right to marry yer sister...

    I can't wait to put these on. The finish and attention to detail are superb. The welds are nice and clean. Someone spilled quality all over this thing. :heartbeat::driving:
  6. The Black Hole
    It has seemed to me for some time that both political parties are "all in" for at least the next 2 election cycles as a result of the economic problems which have beset pretty much the entire world. Here's my thought process: Last fall there seemed to be greater agreement as to the magnitude...
  7. B5 Garage
    After doing my alternator last weekend, when i put everything together i noticed i had a drip drip drip where these cooling lines meet the hoses. I just tried to tighten them up, and when i started the car, the line started gushing.... not good, right? are these capable of being tightened...
  8. Wax On, Wax Off
    I’m thinking about replacing my hood – because of too much rust. If I just buy the used one of same color, how much is the shade (tone) going to be different from mine? Will I need to repaint it or just cleaning and waxing would even it out? My passat is 2000 indigo blue. How much is ‘00...

    I 'm very happy to have just received a set of Votex side skirts. The kit contains 2 side skirts, and 4 door sill caps. The parts are beautiful - skirts are made of PU material in Austria, produced from deep moulds of complex profiles, heavily built to sustain some abused use...

    I've noticed this behaviour long ago but dismissed it thinking its just an illusion on my part...and just recently, i thought i'd check it out again... While driving, I tried to monitor the rear wheels via the side view mirror- by angling it down and close-and i can see the edge of the...

    Story Maybe. But it's looking good. This would be the only one in NC. The wife ain't gonna like this one bit. Oh, boy. oh, boy... :cool: (I know: big deal. But it would be the ONLY one, and it's near ME!)

    So I called the audi dealership cause I want an N75J for my 1.8T B5.5 right? The lady tells me it's actually "built into the turbo" and can't get one for me. Uh, if they're built in, how do all these other clubb5 members have them in their car, I was thinking. Then she tried to tell me VW's...

    So I went to the VW Show-N-Go today in Englishtown and there was an "import car" event happening on the same day. What does this mean? A lot of these in the parking lot and on the roads: Including this one parked close to mine. BLING BLING.

    ok, so yah, I know all y'all are wanting pix, so here they are: http://homepage.mac.com/cdev13/PhotoAlbum10.html But seriously, I'm wondering if i put the wrong fuses back in, as the lights no longer work every time I turn the car on. Took her out for a spin, and they looked great (but my...

    America's Tire damaged my wheels, now they're trying to say it wasn't them!! OMG, i can not believe what is happening. roughly two weeks ago I had my tires installed at America's Tire in glendora CA. Well, i've been REALLY busy with school& work lately (especially with finals) and it was a...
