    Good shop around Austin?

    Hey what's a good shop around Austin (TX) that could do some work to my car, like install coils or whatever? I don't know how many Austinites are on here but I thought I'd give it a shot. It'd be great to network with MKVers in the area as well.

    Holes in oilpan?

    Okay, so, I've been informed that when you lower your car that your GTI can very easily get holes in the plastic(?!) oilpan because of how low it is. This results in burning up the engine, etc. Someone tell me this isn't true.

    GTI vs. Mustang GT

    All I've got is an intake, nothing much. His Mustang looked about stock, it was an 04 or something, he might have had an exhaust. Anyway, coming home with two of my friends in the car, I drive off from a light passing a two slow cars (A minivan in the fast lane, and the Mustang in the right...

    I Hate Our Carpet

    The carpet (not mats, the actual carpet floor) is easily matted and can be pulled up . You'd think VW would have put some better carpet in there. There's a spot where when people step in my car to get in the back seat that the carpet is matted down and vacuuming it doesn't help much. My...

    Sweet Idea?!

    I don't know if anyone has ever thought of this but I recently thought of cleaning my car and the weather has been somewhat cold (not bad, but I know it is in some crazy snowy places this time of the year). Anyway, a self-service INDOOR car wash sounds like a great idea. Maybe some type of...

    Annoying Audio Sound

    (2008 GTI) When I get in my car--mostly in the morning--the driver's-side door speakers will start making an annoying white noise sound. This just started recently, about a week ago. I've just hit 4500 miles. When I turn off the stereo the sound stays for about 5 seconds, then turns off. And it...

    I've been badgeless on the front, since I've had my GTI. It came without it because it either flew out, or wasn't put on at production. Anyway, I have no idea, some how it didn't come with the car. My dealer ordered one for me, for free because neither me nor the dealer noticed it until I got...
