    What do you miss from your previous car?

    Rear wheel drive. My wife still has the car a 2006 325i so I can drive. It is not nearly as fun or quick as the GTI, but rear drive is a different experience.

    Any cyclist on here

    Good input. Yes, bearing replaced as I estimated Wayne put 40K on the frame during the two years it was raced in the Continental team. I have put on approaching 20K miles since replaced. I did a bearing replacement DIY: https://forums.thepaceline.net/showthread.php?t=144280

    Any cyclist on here

    Just heading out. Three days a week. Live off of the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT) so 62 miles of off road paved trail through the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. I pinch myself all the time as I would fly across the country to ride the ODT. I do gravel on the Forest Roads around here...

    Recommendations for mobile workbenches?

    For the price that is not too bad. Harbor freight usually has decent options. There $90 is equivalent with open bay below and for $170 you get a lot more drawers. Always can find a 20% off coupon...

    Where to put your money

    Paypal Question

    I have never done that as I have had a PayPal account. However, the way I read this it appears so. https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/template-management/prepaid-gift-cards If I was the seller I might be concerned as you normally only ship to a PayPal verified address which is required to...

    Ford Fiesta - No More?

    The Fiesta ST was a lot of fun for little money, too bad. I am always saddened when a hot hatch goes away for the North American market. Americans just don't get it.

    My Blown Turbo Story

    Totally blows (pun intended)! Such a bummer that it happened so far away from home. If it was home, $500 for a turbo, and a weekend and your fixed. Just a bad situation so far from home. Shoulda, woulda, coulda won't help. Enjoy your new ride and go into those dirt forest roads and go...

    Cant take it anymore. Thinking of selling my GTI

    If you did a trade for a similarly condition used SE, you might not be out as much as one would think, likely not much more then the cost of a wrap. You can be patient and shop it until the right deal comes around. Coming from the autobahn may be difficult to go to S, 2016 SE with LP would be...
