Giving away VW Grey Leather seats that I bought for my 2 door Golf that is now dead. I am posting it here hoping someone local wants these more than I do which is not at all.

Send me an email and I will send you an address.

Gone to a worthy TDI owner

Very nice, but someone else needs them more than I do.

Yes my 2002 Golf TDI has gone to its finally resting place. 12,000 miles ago it through a rod and I wanted to keep it alive. But now it has had another mechanical failure, autopsy in progress.

I am looking to get rocket engines and send it to that car resting place in the stars.

I'm up to my eyeballs in a second timing belt, head gasket replacement and EGR cooler cleanout in Shafer, MN. I might need some VAGcom help when I have her back together if someone is available and willing.

2014 Jetta - Lock with FOB While Running
Just bought and would like to enable the FOB to lock the vehicle while running. Is there anyone close to the New Brighton area that would be able and willing?

As a side note, how’s your vehicle holding up with the Arctic temps thus far?

Jfettig is in blaine, so right near new brighton, iirc he does the newer stuff on a commercial basis. Greengeeker is up in cambridge, so bit more of a haul, also a good guy though.

On the cold... Cutting my pistons for lower compression may have been a mistake. Been needing ether to get her popped over haha. Finally was able to find a place to jam a tank heater in there tonight, so here's hoping it works tomorrow morning.

Got an old EGR cooler cleaned out and cut up, planning on running exhaust through it for both a muffler and some better coolant heat. Teed in to the downpipe, then with a butterfly valve in the downpipe further downstream to force the exhaust through the restriction...

[486] - I'm not working on cars anymore, sold off all my gear.

Yeah, low compression is a problem, no need to do that. I'm running stock ARL pistons in my Passat - still really hard to start in the winter but probably for additional reasons.
