    The COVID19 SCAMdemic...Conspiracy Memes On Obscure Car Forum Take Over The Google

    Herd immunity = many more of us will die. I personally have loved ones who are vulnerable due to respiratory health conditions and it is a constant struggle and source of stress worrying about whether they will be exposed to a carless idiot who refuses to wear a mask. The Sweden plan is no...

    The COVID19 SCAMdemic...Conspiracy Memes On Obscure Car Forum Take Over The Google

    I don't know where you're from Zrickety, but anyone from my neck of the woods is going to have a hard time with your point of view. We know all to well in NYC that this is most certainly not a scam and it is very real. In April and May we all had the unfortunate privilege of witnessing the...

    Thanks. I'm looking for the dark tinted ones. I've got them on my car now, but one of them needs to be replaced.

    WTB: Tinted Tail Lights

    I have the OEM US spec tinted tail lights on my car. The outer driver side plastic is cracked. Looking for a replacement, but the only ones I've seen in stock are on ECS for $$$. I only need the outer drivers side, but I'll buy the whole set if anyone is looking to offload them.

    Anyone ever heard of this shop? Came across these guys in a search but never heard of them. I'm looking to get my valves cleaned. I just past 100K recently and they've never been done so I'm sure it's long overdue. If anyone has any other recommendations in the area...

    Aftermarket Cam Follower?

    Has anyone used any of the non OEM cam followers on ECS? I'm tired of paying $50 every time. Wondering if they're any different.

    Rough Starts

    This past weekend I swapped out my cam follower, changed the oil, did a coolant flush and replaced the coolant temp sensor. Everything seemed fine after the flush, sensor and follower were replaced. After I changed the oil I started the car and it was bucking and hesitated to start for a...

    What is this screw?

    I was replacing my coolant temp sensor today and when I was cleaning up the coolant I spilled I found this screw sitting on top of my transmission... Anyone know where it might be from?

    Got a CEL yesterday. Help please.

    CEL came on last night. P2181, Cooling system performance fault. I don't have vag-com but did a scan with the torque app and this is the only code that came up. Anyone know whether there might be any other codes that torque is not able to see? As far as the P2181, did some searching, seems...

    MKVII Clubsport

    Anyone see this? Everything I've read so far indicates that the Edition 40 will not be available in the US but this article seems to point to the contrary. Not sure how much CNET can be trusted, but if it's true I could be tempted to trade up from my MKV...

    Fog bulb replacement

    I've got a couple bulbs out so I'm planning to do a refresh on them all. Anyone know how to tell whether I've got the projector fogs or standard ones?
