As a Michigan resident, I pay $900 USD per year for LIABILITY (PLPD) on a 2005 wagon. I had full coverage on it but that was $1,900 USD per year. All on a car that's realistically valued at $3,000-$3,500 USD. Simple math says risk it and remove full coverage and the savings pays off in 3 years...
Most aftermarket CV axles for VW's are junk and will vibrate, at least I've never had good luck... then they will wipe out the wheel bearing on that side. I suggest OEM or send your old OEM unit to RAXLES. I put left and right OEM units from IDPARTS in my '05 two years ago.
I have already contacted the vendor regarding what to do about a replacement.

So in roughly 1 month, we will have a new addition to the family. I naively thought I could fit 2 car seats in the back of my 2005 Jetta wagon. While yes, they do indeed fit, there is no way I can drive with a forward facing carseat behind my drivers seat. Rear facing takes up more space. So, I...
I've seen you ripping around lately. You are in a blue ALH 5spd Jetta, pretty sure it's tuned. Also has a yellow front plate (John Deere? CAT?). I was behind you for a few miles, we exchanged waves, then I turned into my driveway on Lewis. I'd love to meet up and just exchange numbers.
