    Anyone have any experience with this? There were a couple threads here when I searched, but with seemingly no resolution. The car in question is a 2010 sedan, CJAA+manual, DPF/cat delete a long time ago, closing in on 1/4 million miles, perfect service history. Came in cranks/no-start. Has...

    Golf 7 UDS battery replacement

    Anyone done one of these yet? The VCDS' drop down menu for the CAN-Gateway Adaptations is completely different than their video shows. This is the first Golf 7 (with an AGM) battery I have had to replace and I cannot figure out the way to do it. Car in question is a 2017 Golf R. This is the...

    question about A4 Jetta City models

    Asking in this section because I think it gets a lot of traffic, and you guys and gals may be able to help me. As many of us have found out, the trunk harness for the A4 Jettas through the 2005 cars sold here has long since been discontinued. However, the same basic model (albeit gasoline...

    saving another one

    Just acquired this little gem: 1999 German built, that goofy-but-kinda-neat blue color you rarely see. Only 200k miles. Needs a turbocharger, rear calipers, sway bar links, tires, clearcoat is peeling, and the shifter feels like parts are missing. I may upgrade it to the later style...

    Our newest diesel is here!

    Finally, after waiting for nearly a year, my wife and I got our new Big Benz, a 2016 Sprinter! Will be getting fitted with a rear entry wheelchair lift, and two anchor points in the back for my two sons. It will be nice having some extra space to move around in for once. We've been...

    FS my trusty Vanagon

    I hate to say it, but I have to let this one move on. Free to a good home, someone who will fix it up and enjoy it. Dropped another valve seat (I think) this morning... I just put these heads on, too. :(

    check their work!

    The dealer "free service" may come at a cost. STL area dealers are deciding not to install the hush panel retainers after servicing the cabin filter on these cars, and the part they are tossing out is a whopping $5.20 apiece! :eek: Part number is WHT-000-155 and there are two of them. As of...

    Our new (to us) diesel...

    Bought this beast last weekend: Will be making use of it around the 187 acre farm. Needed to backfill a large area near our new building. It was going to cost as much to hire someone to do it as it was to buy this truck. We already have two tractors with loaders, and plenty of gravel/rock...
