    Metalman Hybrid Oil Pan for 2005 New Beetle TDI

    FS: Metalman Hybrid Oil Pan for 2005 New Beetle TDI Sold the beetle a while back and swapped the oil pans, putting the stock aluminum one back on prior to selling. It is in great shape, no damage at all. No leaks, but, for piece of mind, I'd reseal it while it is out. I'm away from the house...

    Brake Light Brightness Difference

As she drove by I noticed that the passenger brake light worked but was not as bright as the factory...

    Magnaflow Exhaust question

    I'm running a Magnaflow cat-back. Will removing & replacing the "resonator" portion of the exhaust system with a straight pipe enhance the sound or will it just have more of a diesel sound? Thanks

    Question on loading 4 wheels & tires in the back of my NB

    I may be heading out on a 7 hr drive (each way) to pick up a set of nice 18" wheels & tires. Wondering if anyone would know if they would fit safely in the bug with the seats down. Anyone transported 4 tires & wheels safely back there?

    Replaced serpentine belt and tidied things up

    I brought my NB in for a 4 wheel alignment Thursday just to make sure everything was OK after I installed my coilovers. It tracked down the road very well, but I just wanted to make sure - and my steering wheel was just a tad bit off center. Not so surprisingly, it came back very close to spec...
