    What Bike attachment are you using?

    Thule makes the VW rack, so their trays will fit. Don't get the down-tube clamp-style holders. They suck. The fork mounts are much better. We have the Thule rack built especially for the NB. Front fork mounts open wide enough to clear "lawyer's lugs" on mountain bikes. The gripe I have...

    Roof Rack Keys

    There aren't many different Thule cylinders (they might all be the same - you can buy a bag of them at bike shops). Find someone with a Thule rack and ask to try their key.

    VW introduces Passat TDI (Press Release)

    If automatics perform so poorly, why did formula 1 put in a rule banning fully auto transmissions this year? Does anyone remember the Chaparral? Just a 2-speed auto, but man, could it run!

    What the fark is this?

    [ QUOTE ] That may be the only horny toad (horned lizard) any of you ever see - they are way endangered now [/ QUOTE ] And they are deee-licious! You live on a butte out there? My brother wants to retire out there, and he should have bought land 10 years ago when he lived in Austin.

    Clutch Vibrations

    Seems like it would matter if it were an old RWD car and the stick went straight into the tranny. It does present a nice place to hang one's hand. My old flight instructor yelled at me so often for taking my right hand off of the throttle that I now have to have it on something, even when I...

    TDI Badge removal

    Yep, heat it up a bit and then saw it off with floss. You should be able to rub the residue off with your fingers. Did you get an all red badge, or a red "DI" like mine?

    Clutch Vibrations

    Remember, the diesel is a more violent engine than the gasser. Those detonations are going to be felt through anything attached to the engine. Is it a good thing to be "feeling" an engaged clutch pedal? Akin to resting one's hand on the gearshift? There is a related problem called "mirror...

    Mods- New clutch necessary?

    I have UPsolute as my only engine mod. I don't race, seldom drive "agressively", and would like my car to last long enough to actually own it. My clutch started slipping in 3rd-5th at about 35k miles. After much investigation, I settled on the Spec Stage 1 organic clutch. I have had it in...
