its actually a little over 106, due to the problems with checking not syncing on occasion with paypal and google

That isn't happening either-last weekend I let a guy test drive it-he hit brakes hard-then said the pedal wasn't feeling right-I noticed brake light on-brake line is now squirting fluid in rear(inside frame rail)-what to f else will happen to my vehicles this week??? Hope everyone has a good time at Fest-maybe I'll go to Wingfest in Buffalo this weekend instead.

Talking Bad luck won't stop me from my First TDI fest

I have wanted to attend a TDI fest close to home. I figured an easy 2.5- 3.5 hrs at posted limits. The speed limit dropped to 55 and I could see a car in the median ahead(state Trooper) my V1 did not go off and the and the trooper stayed (5:00am.) The 4 deer 50 yards away didn't, The 4th one, a buck got my right front. Went back to trooper to get paperwork for insurance. Drove back home (Tire rub on bumps) to get another car. Left V1 in 06 Jetta( mistake) 120 miles later after passing car there was second trooper. I guess it wasn't meant for me to go today. I will have my wife drive me. We can't both be jinxed.

Well,it was my turbo feed line-the connection at turbo was weak.When I tried to undo nut-the line fell off above nut.I ended up taking the intake off and will put original one back on-then I will put the rubber washers underneath the valve cover so oil stops weeping out of top.No oil in intercooler hose on bottom-so turbo should be ok for now.Hope everyone is having a good time and that weather is good.
