    VAG-COM tweeks

    My UK TDI has electromechanical power steering. I thought in the US it was just the 2.5 petrol that had hydraulic power steering (old tech to go with an old engine! ;) )

    Changing front brakes on 2000 new Beetle

    Eh? How do you work that out! The bias is on the fronts, in my experience the fronts always wear first! Ive had 8 New Beetles, all wore the fronts out at about 50k and the rears around 65k!

    Trailer Hitch?

    Personally I wouldnt like to fit one. The 2012 Bug hasn't been tested or approved for a tow hitch so fitting one would be at your risk, but then of something happens.... Also if its anything like the UK then fitting a tow hitch would be illegal as the car hasn't been approved for it. The...

    1.9 TDI PD - Issues please help!

    Thanks for the reply :) Its not smoking at all either on a run or at start-up (other than a bit of black smoke occassionally). I'd have thought it would be producing blue smoke if the Turbo was done for? It does go back into VW next week under their parts warranty for the EGR leak, but I...
