    Rear Hatch Inop

    So I went to the store and picked up some wire. I already had some shrink butt-splices. Anyways, you just cut and splice in new wire where the brittle insulation is malleable. Then you shrink the connectors. A heat gun works best. After you're done shrinking the connectors you should wrap the...

    Rear Hatch Inop

    So to start the story, I've been in the process of moving and I left my last load of stuff in my trunk overnight. I come out to my car in the morning and the hatch won't pop and my bulb out warning is on for not reverse lights not working. Being a body electrical and squeak/rattle/water leak...

    what did you do to your mkv today?

    Got "coolest golf" at the Sacramento Bugorama!!! There were a good couple handfuls of some bad ass watercooled's there and I was thoroughly surprised I got that award. Only because I feel my car could be so much better. But at any rate, it made my day for sure! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Official Magma Orange Fahrenheit GTI (LD2C) Pic Thread

    Thought I'd share some pics of #473 on the 473 post in the Magma thread :D Then decided to wrap the car since getting a respray would have cost 4-6 times as much.

    what wheels are these???

    I've done some pretty extensive searching for what wheels these are (like a week now) before asking... I got this pic off a thread way back when and didn't note what wheels they were (if it was even mentioned)... But could a wheel expert fill me in? I know they aren't OZ or VMR... Thanks!
