    The car audio thread...

    2.2TDI - my car has that DOWN. We connected the constant and the ignition wires to the wire that's triggered by the ignition. Now it shuts off every time the key is out. Aaaaaand... we go into demo mode the next time we turn on the car. Therein lies the problem. Edit: before anyone asks - that...

    The car audio thread...

    The man found someone who said they took the constant 12V from the fuse box... anyone else attempt this? Just trying to see what option is the easiest way to go about it. Hussain - that's one of the reasons I picked up Pioneer - it's Android and Blackberry which is what we have. But we can't...

    -20 degrees and forgot to plug in - two mornings in a row...

    I do what Jason does. My theory is that whatever air is blowing on the windshield from the inside, even if colder, is way warmer than the air blowing on the windshield from the outside.

    A$% on fire !!!!

    I took my 2003 a few years back to Owasco with this issue. The seat warmer actually burned through my cloth cover. They replaced the foam, cover and element. Mind you, the cover was a fight with VW Canada. It's not "covered by the recall" (no pun intended). However, I argued that I could see...

    Power Steering Line(s)

    Hi gang, Since it's been a while, I don't recall who used to keep parts cars. I'm looking for power steering lines (not sure if it's the in or the out - the mechanic didn't mention) kicking around. I have sprung a small leak and they generally look rusted. I'm hoping the 2.0 golf lines are...

    Ottawa Area Windsheild Replacement

    If you had a choice to pay $200 or $400 for no-name vs OEM respectively, which would you pick? For a newer car (a couple years old) I may spring for the $400. For mine, the $200 option was a no-brainer. It depends on what you're trying to accomplish with the car too.

    Ottawa Area Windsheild Replacement

    I'm in Montreal, and I had a guy do my windshield (mobile) for $200ish. Depends on the car you have too and if you have a sensor windshield or not.

    Get her to drive the wagon. I will admit, I was like her. I went to a freedrive event and I didn't even want to go near the thing... but it had no line up lol so I took it out... it handles like a hatchback. It's a BEAUTIFUL car. It's like... a stretch Golf. I strongly believe the she can be...

    2011 tdi wagon jumps out of park
