    Erratic idle & Engine Behavior HELP PLEASE!!

    Check the fuel and if that isn't it, possibly check cam wear. I had the same symptoms on my BRM and it was the cam/lobes. I'm starting to get some of the same symptoms on my PD.

    BEW EGR Cooler and 1749VB turbo that needs small repair

    BEW EGR Cooler and freshly rebuilt 1749VB turbo w/EGR pipe It's been a while since I have been on the Club here, but I am still putting on 1000km per week on my 2005 BEW. Recently, I had the VNT bushings prematurely wear out on my 1749VB turbo assembly and I had no time to pull the...

    What did you do to your car today?

    I swapped out my door lock module in the MK4 - took just over an hour from start to finish - wasn't that bad at all.

    Quick front right turn signal bulb replacement question

    You don't really need to go in there too often, so drill, zap strap, and forget. Mine have been like that for years.

    What did you do to your car today?

    My right foot did go through my WeatherTechs after about 4 years. I couldn't find my receipt, but called them up, they found my order, asked I send them a couple of pics, which I did, and within an hour they had sent a new mat in the mail. Worth every penny in my eye.

    Coilover set-up vs conventional suspension; AND what to go with?!

    I have had a variety of suspension systems in my cars, and a few in my MK4. If you don't need a lot of drop, then the Eibach Pro system is great right out of the box - smooth and allows for fast cornering without body roll. This doesn't allow you to change the height, though. I currently have...

    Quick front right turn signal bulb replacement question

    Both of the tabs on my housings are busted from taking off those covers. A drill and two zap straps later, the covers stay in place. I'm Irish like that.

    What did you do to your car today?

    For the plastic lenses I bought a new set of OE lights for $30 per side and melted off the lenses. I was quoted $70 a lense - go figure. Projectors are the FX-R from TRS. http://www.theretrofitsource.com/complete-retrofit-kits/bi-xenon-fx-r-stage-iii-kit.html#.VFl9VckhDy8 New winter tires...

    What did you do to your car today?

    Replaced my cracked glass lenses with plastic ones, painted the inside of my lights, replaced my ballasts and bixenon bulbs - took almost all day but it needed to be done. In order to get to the lights on these older Dubs, you have to remove the whole front bumper. Fun. Started like this...

    Headlight Questions

    I disagree. I added glass lenses and also 20mil 3M protective film, within 6 months I have 3 chips in my left glass that allows water into my headlights and two on the right. The amount of dirt they lay on our highways for winter around here make these a waste of money. Going back to plastic...

    Hills with a Malone tune

    My last cat didn't rattle, it was just clogged - shortly after my tune. Guess where all that smoke has to first pass? Once the cat hit the ground, I was rolling full throttle again. I was getting really weird boost issues (noticed it going up hills at first) which lead to solving the issue...
