Lately I've noticed that the carpet "floor" in my trunk is quite warm, but only on the left (driver) side. Is it the heat from the exhuast? Is this normal or do I have an issue do deal with?? TIA

Yes, it's from the muffler. Heat radiates into the trunk from the exhaust when you're stopped and idling -- no amount of heat shielding can prevent that forever. Your best bet to keep this under control is to drive at high speeds whenever possible. :lol:

Yeah...I knew passat "farts" were good for something. :) Sounds like I've got nothing to worry about. Or do I?

I like this solution the best, but I just CAN'T afford it. :)
