    Timing belt replacement interval - time, not mileage

    Has VW or the timing belt manufacturer's (Gates or Continental) given us a time limit or time interval change on our timing belts? I know the mileage interval is 80k, but what about time? I don't drive my car nearly as much as I used to, so it'll be years before I hit the next mileage interval.

    WTT my .622 5th gear set for your .658 gear set

    The title pretty much says it all. My .622 5th gear set is just too tall for my liking in the B4. There is too much of a gap between 4th & 5th. I didn't like the .681 either as it wasn't a big enough drop from stock. The .658 should be just right. Looking to trade and I need it right away...
