    I think I fell in love with a Sportwagen

    Don't get me wrong, I still love my MINI, but.... There was a car show down here at the Empire State Plaza and they had a real nice white Sportwagen. What are the negatives now of a TDI? I've been away. Do they still have timing belts? Thanks VF

    Hello and MINI Update

    Hello everyone. I miss the group. Nothing else like it on the web for depth and friendliness. Alas, I have had a MINI Cooper, 08 (R56) for 5,000 miles now. Very nice car. Sporty yet economical (no problem 40+ mpg, two tanks of 45 mpg and one tank of 48 mpg). 6 speeds but more close...

    Exhaust Leak? Maybe; Dropped Motor Mount? For Sure

    2000 Beetle has 212k miles. Developed what I thought was an exhaust noise. Couldn't find the leak, but excessive motor movement did reveal a dropped passenger side motor mount! I guess the twist could've broken something loose on the exhaust. Engine has 8k miles til next 80k timing belt change...

    What is the length of the dip stick?

    ALH motor. It didn't take as much oil as it should have during a change. I replaced the broken dipstick tube recently. I probably just didn't get all the oil up with with suction tank, but would like to check it. Thanks. PS: I would imagine measuring the entire length of the plastic tube...

    Windshield Broke-Suggestions?

    My windshield broke today. Any suggestions on replacing? I think I have full glass coverage. The OEM windshield has a sun tint strip on top and some black-dots on the edges. Should I go for OEM-spec, or do I just get what the insurance shop gives me?

    Beetle Aux In Part Numbers Please

    I am trying to make hook up an auxiliary jack to the newish (2005 or so) vintage non-monsoon cd-player equipped oem deck in my 2000 Beetle. This radio allows an aux input by pushing the cd button. (I don't want to lose my VW Phatnoise to an adapter.) I understand it's just a matter of hooking...

    Borescope Uses?

    I got one (36", 1/4" diam), now I have to justify it. What could be some car related uses? I just read a thread on a replaced cam follower where someone recommended to remove the head for inspection-I figure this could be used there by looking through a glow plug hole. The scope is resistant...
