Nero,
With 176k on mine, I've got a rebuilt spare on the shelf. I'll probably
swap it in next TB. No problems yet, but the pump is the heart and soul of the engine.
My $.02.

Nero, if you don't have a spare IP, check this out!

I wish I could pick it up, but we're in savings mode right now.

You know I saw that a few days ago, I find it hard to believe it's a zero mile brand new unit... I do have a spare 11mm pump that needs overhauled so I'm not too terribly worried about it, plus I don't have performance issues yet, knock on wood. Just thinking preventative maintenance.

Actually did this yesterday...replaced rear wheel bearing hubs, installed 0.5 degree shim in right rear due to camber being at 2 degrees negative, so now at 1.5 degrees negative which is now in spec. Caliper bracket was shimmed as well.

Also replaced the large radiator fan, since it was locked up. Had to use zip ties to keep the connector together since the factory connector tab decided to break when I pressed it to release.

All is working well, though.

Any mkv single stage airbag will work; as long as you are handy with a soldering iron.... Just fyi.the wheel won't matter but the harness + bag do

They honestly don't do much but upset people in oncoming lanes; it's all flood LEDs but for my use they are ok; I've started angling them outward so as to Illuminate the outskirts of a 2 lane road ( ditch and surrounding area) because I'm more worried about illumination in that area vs straight ahead most days. I've planned on putting some real hella old school rally fixtures on it. But my corrado project is now taking most of the funds I had laying here

Cussed it! Not really. It's old. Pushed it out of the way and drove the 2015 Passat to work because it wouldn't start.

I replaced the antennae base again, because FM reception was at about 50% and AM reception at 10-20%.

I have the same wheel in my wagon sans bag (non-DD) and have been searching for a single stage bag myself. As I understand there are single stage B6 bags too.

I also have an MKVI w/ bag that Iíve been waiting to install that uses a single stage too.

Both are multi-function, but I have no intention of wiring up the multi-function, as my car did not originally have a MFSW.

Such a different ďfeelĒ in your hands.
