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.
Tomorrow I'll be in Cambridge.
5x100, 15", very little rust. Tires hold air and have some tread but they are old
I was going to pull the tires off myself with a manual Tire machine but realized the effort isn't worth it and I have too many sets of wheels and tires anyways
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...
For reference i paid 4k safety and etested for a 2006 with 330k kms, 5 speed, cloth interior
this was in january, i was looking for about a month. Had a line on an auto 2005, but that car was totalled by the owners brother after I test drove it and told him i wanted it...
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...
Rock auto lists different part numbers for the rear brakes on the tdi based on it seems pre and post facelift.
The parts look the same and Ive never heard of this difference so I just want to confirm as the "pre facelift" brakes are about 50% less than post
edit: there is a slight difference...
Searching the vw.ca website comes up with nadda, google, nothing, transport canadas page with links to automative manufacturers recall links shows vw as n/a.
Does anyone know where I can search for recalls based on my vin, and see if anything is due?
I just recently purchased a wagon, an 06 mind you, but if it was me, I wouldn't pay any more than 4 grand safetied and certified.
Youve had the car for 4 years so I can only assume its paid off. If you get the money back in the parts i would call that a win.
if you post it for sale, dont say...
I concur, rockauto changed their shipping policy and so you pay duties with the initial order, which usually isnt much, and you arent dinged with bs brokerage fees when the part arrives.
9 times out of 10, rockauto is cheaper, even with shipping
heres for a 2005 as i was curious...
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.
