My GTI has Koni FSD dampers and Eibach ProKit springs, which generally i like a lot, but the rear end seems to sag a bit, especially if i have a load in the back. And in general it's just kinda soft.
And it's embarrassing when i have 2 passengers and luggage. Lots of rubbing.
So yeah, I've...
I'm curious because my LPFP is on it's way out. I need to buy a new one soon.
The R32 pump is about $50 cheaper than the current GTI pump. Unsure on the TT-RS pump.
I'm aware that there's a hose to remove and a port to seal.
Anyone other than USP do this at home with good results?
Been a knocking sound on the passenger side front end for some time when going over bumps. Figured it was a loose bolt so i am investigating given relatively good weather.
Feeling around near the sway bar bracket (to see if that is loose) i found this sumbitch:
Time for more upgrades. I'm looking for a used Golf R intercooler.
Please be aware that I can buy one new for $265 from 1stvwparts, plus about 11 bucks shipping. 1K0145803BP - check it if you don't believe me.
Shipping would be to 84097 (Utah)
Earlier this week my GTI threw P2196 bank 1 O2 sensor stuck rich. It turned out that the back edge of my heat shield had vibrated it's way through the outer jacket on the bank 1 o2 sensor and just barely through the insulation on one of the wires.
You can see the damage here:
I took the...
To start, Rennline didn't pay me to do this. I haven't had any communication with anyone associated with Rennline aside from my invoice and shipping confirmation. I paid full price. I'm just a guy who dailies his car in a harsh environment and I'm tired of breaking the plastic chin plates.
I'm gonna start by apologizing for not having autoscan data. I think for some reason my VCDS cable is in my house or in my land cruiser. I can't find it in my car. I'll be ever so pissed if i lost it.
I'll try and find my hex+can when i get home.
When i bought my car it already had a catless...
Fuckin' chin plate broke this morning. I so love kneeling on a wet parking lot so that i can take the screws out and pull the worthless chunks of plastic off so that they don't break anything else and i can continue with my commute.
Every fucking winter.
Anyway. Clearly i need something more...
Came with my electric heater core, pull from a 2006 tdi jetta. Looks almost new.
google and ebay seem to indicate that this core (maybe not the hard lines, but for sure the core) is common to all mk5 and mk6, including A3 and various other audis. There are no bent fins, can take...
Last week i suddenly found that i was hurtling through traffic at great speed with no glass in the driver's side mirror.
Money is a little tight and OEM mirror glass is not cheap.
I went to an auto parts store and got the self-adhesive temporary mirror stuff - only a hair better than nothing...
Last friday i was driving to work in the morning and noticed that the driver's side mirror glass was vibrating.
And then i saw it fall right off the heated backing.
80mph on the freeway so what am i gonna do. I got the (terrible) cut-and-stick temporary mirror and ordered some aspherical...
