    Can't believe its been this long but Yes, I still like my UG. After the initial calibration process as Growler mentioned, it just works and stays pretty accurate for my needs also. I haven't been so good about using Fuelly to kept good track of my tank mileage but I have an app that does...

    What type of tires are you guys running?

    When I purchased my 03 Wagon, it had Michelin Primacy MXV4, same as the ones I have on my 98 Passat. Have had very good luck with this tire. On my GTI I ran Mastercraft Touring LSR's an they seemed to perform and wear right. Both my 87 Jetta GLX and 98 Passat came with Continentals and really...

    Opinions on Jetta Wagon

    I agree with BOTH WhiteDog and Supton, what are you waiting for, go pick the darn thing up, Growler helped me find mine, bought it broken, replaced motor along with clutch and haven't looked back. Family Friendly, Wife Approved... Now with a Malone Stg3 Tune and DBW DLC1019 Stg1 Injectors - oh...

    ALH vacuum pump leak and concerns

    Are you positive it’s leaking at the pump half’s? It appears you may have a similar issue like mine where there is a knick or uneven surface area on the head where the pump seals. During all my troubleshooting attempts, for grins I bought the BRM oil filter, used the seal from it, which I may...

    ALH leaking vacuum pump

    *** STATUS UPDATE *** I ended up replacing the pump and seal but in the process I noticed the DIY gasket I used appeared to have melted or dried up so maybe I used the wrong DIY gasket sealant. I went ahead and installed the pump and seal any way. Since all of this and several thousand...

    TUNES...what kind and WHY

    Recommend Malone tune Highly recommend Malone - I am currently using their EcoTune with stock injectors but hopefully I will finally get my Bosch T4 (1019) injectors soon and will give my Stage 3 tune another try.:D Can't go wrong, service is top notch and their product speaks for itself.

    Loose Diagnostic Connector
