Anyone kind enough to let me use their driveway/garage to do some basic maintenance/repairs in Toronto? I'll bring pizza beer etc.. and got all tools/jacks etc...


Moved to an apartment and last time I did work on the car management came quickly to tell me to stop. Don't want to get into any trouble again.

You are welcome to use my driveway if you don't mind a drive to Whitby. I can also do your hatch & window mod if I haven't already.

Window mod is so you can roll your windows up & down remotely with the fob. For wagons, the hatch mod is where the hatch is unlocked in sync with the doors, so the fob/door panel button is not required to open it.

None, I have done hundreds. Just pay it forward by doing something nice to a stranger one day. Buy a coffee for the guy behind you in the drive through, or shovel your neighbors driveway.

Free Wagon Roof Racks

They're from an an old Subaru Forester, however I used them on both my MK4 and Mk6 wagon. Kinda ugly & one of the mounts is getting to the end of it's life.....but you can have 'em for free.

Front oem struts from a 2013 tdi wagon. 130,000 k on them. Just replaced as I had to fix a broken spring and figured I'd stick in new struts while i was in there. They still worked fine. Pickup in brooklin. Free.

I'm at my parents house in Markham. Sorry the location info is a bit off.
That's OK, my son's in Halifax (stuck in the covid "Atlantic bubble"). But if you were out there I might have had him take you up on your kind offer.
Hopefully somebody can take advantage of this... Happy Holidays.

Also came across two stock alloy wheels for a mk4 with old snow tires on them. And a complete front rad support with a radiator and fans installed. Adding them to the list for free as well.
