2. Adding a WVO system to a 2009 CR Loyalty Edition model;

3. Converting a metal skidplate to an OEM Plastic model;

4. A how to remove your aftermarket tune;

5. Adding that perfect factory seat to replace your Recaro add in;

6. Replacing OEM Hid lights for ecodes;

7. How to remove your .658/.681 gear for stock;

8. How to kill your HPFP;

9. How to replace a 17/22 with a vnt 15;

10. How to add a K&N Air Filter.

Just some suggestions ........ Thoughts?

I'd like to know how to replace the crappy synthetic oil in my TDI with super-outstanding conventional oil.

Convert your gear-driven Passat BSM to a nice, quiet chain-driven unit.

Add in-dash cupholders to your late Mk4.

Swap out your heavy large-roller timing belt setup for a lightweight 99.5 model using the mark-and-pray method.

Make that swapping out the 02A and swapping in the 01M, and I'll attend that session.

Replace that communist-housing-block-grey Relay 109 with a svelte black model.

Ditch that unreliable rubberband of a timing belt for a much more reliable chain-drive system from a VR6.

LOL, I'll have to fit that in with a talk on how to convert your tdi to a CNG vehicle.

Replacing the outdated ALH GP system with one of two options: robust yet ineffective ceramic GPs or frangible but stout steel GPs.

I say throw out all the mods and get new ones. New mods are better than old mods full of hot air.

I think this post was started a few days too early. Today would have been more appropriate no?
