    WTB MKIV shocks and lowering springs

    Anyone have a set of decent shocks/springs for sale. Don’t want too low of a ride. I have FK springs and they’re too stiff and low for my taste.

    Caveat emptor. I blew my KP39 on my wagon a while back and didn't have enough money to buy the VNT17 from my usual sources, so I head to eBay for a "deal". Turns out the turbo I bought didn't come with a actuator, but came in a brand new box from Garrett and all seemed fine. FF to now and I...

    Hello all, I just pulled my D2 coilovers because its been super bouncy since i installed them. I thought I may have put in the bumpstops, but after taking them out verified I did not. Instructions were poor but I got to figure out why these things rebound so hard. I'm literally thrown up in...

    BEW Serpentine belt tensioner

    I found out the hard way the belt on the BEW is dual sided, but noticed the pulley on the tensioner is smooth. I ordered this a few years back from ID Parts and they speced it for the car. Should it be grooved? My other BEW does have the grooved pulley. Any other BEW folks have a smooth one?

    MKIV wagon hatch switch demons

    I bought a used BEW wagon that has a gremlin in the hatch release. Remote flashes the lights, relay makes a sound, actuator works when fed 12v, but I found no continuity on the hatch release micro switch. I get a 186.2 value when I hit the switch. Question is this within range?
