    Wagon owners: how well/quickly does your rear defrost work?

    I have an 06 wagon, the rear defrost works very well, although I have no reference as to whats fast, and whats slow. Lets say, i turn the car on before i start scraping. If i start at the front, when i get to the back, ice has already melted along the heater strips.

    Castrol Edge 5w40 in a PD?

    otty, I noticed yesterday that partsource carries a 505.1 rated total oil, 5w30 as well as a 505.1 "listed" oil by redline. I doubt redline actually paid for the certificaiton and is just saying its equivalent, but i would trust redline either way. Theres also the option of using rotella t6...

    Tire size speedometer issue

    actual tire sizes fluctuate as well. Those two tires might be much farther apart in dimensions than their sidewall sizes indicate. This is very apparent with high performance tires and their listed tread width. You stack a set of two different brands, but the same sidewall listed size and one...

    Best spot to pick up MK4 front fenders?

    Back in 2008 when I was looking to purchase my first tdi (ended up with the unicorn b4v) I remember coming across a website that had an extensive used car buying guide for TDIs. Maybe it was this site, but I haven't been able to find it. Recently bought a PD and I know nothing about them. If...
