I swap out my loud 10mm IP that was also giving me hesitation issues, for 11mm IP.
The car is much smoother and livelier. I canít begin to explain the difference in drivability, wowed.

Renewed my vows with my 2005 A4 Jetta (GLS/5spd). I purchased this car in 2009 with 90K miles on it.
I've been driving it for the past year without inspection due to check engine light (egr problem)
Rust had shown up on front passenger side fender as well and the Frost Heater I had installed in 09 had died.
Roman Golden at Automotive Consulting Services replaced the fender, took care of the egr (and added a level 1 tune), replaced two dented doors, flushed and did a complete rear brake job, put a new door lock actuator on a back door, oil and filter change and a fuel filter change.Plus installed a new Frost Heater so hitting the road early am in the winter will be easier.
Car is at 255K miles now and I am hoping to get past the 300K mile mark sometime next year. The tune is not a major change but it's added to the fun.
Thanks Roman, great job.

Went to replace my inner and outer tie rod ends for play and when I pulled the rack boot I found rusty gunk. Cleaned it out and found the play was in the rack not the inner tierod.

Oh well will get another used rack and put my tierods on it and rebuild my control arms with new bushings and ball joints. And since I'll be dropping the subframe might as well replace those bushings also and replace e sway bar bushings since there right there.

Then get an alignment that's been needed for awhile.

Finally fixed my fuel leak, the 3 point plug was leaking, made a tool and took 15 minutes to replace the o ring, even taking the fuel lines off.

New front and rear springs, shocks, struts, control arm bushings and all new hardware. Mount kits, bellows, bump stops, etc. 151K and 17 years never changed them before so it was about time.

Well. Fixed a few things tonight. Found out why my A/C stop working the plug had a collision with some corrosion the ground wire was hanging on by a single strand. Well JK run tomorrow to cut off a plug off 2.0l pretty sure the plug ends are the same. Also had to replace my PS pump and pulley after The aftermarket upper intercooler pipe blew off with about 20ish psi in the tube and bent the hell out of the pulley also messed up the bearings In the pump shaft and destroyed the serp belt. All yea also rolled over 360k. Now have to Save up for timing belt kit so I can do it in the 5k.

Wrapped up new Driver's Door switch and used Fuel Door and Trunk switches replacement. All the doors work as designed, sigh. Found a used hood in good condition and will replace when time permits.

Changed thermostat, and got rid of the last of my egr components. Since I stripped the inside of one of the bolts holding the egr cooler I pulled the whole manifold, and took that opportunity to clean some more of the oil/soot mixture caked onto it with the pressure washer at work, followed by an o-ring pick, and it’s looking quite a bit better than before.

The car is now warming up as it should, and it’ll be nice to get that mileage back.

The old antenna was missing a gasket, so I installed a new antenna base with a new gasket and stubby whip antenna.

I just did that too, then installed my new plastic hood release, since I broke my last one, and the one That was on the car when I bought it was mostly chicken wire.

That is the same price I paid yesterday here in California at the independent station around the corner.

That’d be nice if it were that cheap around here. Last time I filled up was almost 4.77/gallon ($1.259/liter)
