    Need a new transfer pump

    Yeah, it was over $500 cdn for the pump.... I had to research how to get the output line off... Used a small gear clamp for the input side.... I can hear the pump clicking now when it's commanded on, ran it for about 2 mins hoping that would be enough to fill the active tank, but I couldn't...

    Dust Shields

    2015 Golf TDI - both dust shields have now fallen off the front rotors. Anyone else experience this? I've had dust shields rust off before, but the cars were much older... Not worried, the passenger side started rubbing against the rim about a year ago so I just tore it off, the driver...

    Best Canadian Source for Parts

    I'm going to give them a call... the guy I've been using for parts - price has been creeping up. I think I've been paying $75 for the last 5L jug of vw dpf rated diesel oil.... I want to measure my brake rotors before getting prices... I think they might still be in spec - wife's q7 needs new...

    I believe you're referring to the guy from Clubtoureg that was tuning the 3.0L TDI trannies.... He did a good job... I think he's based out of Pennsylvania and does it on the side.

    comfort windows

    I did some coding on my mk7 golf, and I would say that $40 would not be out of line for a shop to do it... I did the joker taillight mod on my golf, and it took at least half an hour to go through all the lines... The comfort windows on the golf were relatively easy... maybe 15 minutes?
