If you ever need a VCDS (new name for Vag-Com) scan and are desperate enough to travel for it, you're welcome to drive North across the border... please bring me something from Dinosaur BBQ (I'll pay for it...)
I actually have a Golf myself, but I started making winter covers (see thread here: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=427869) and I was looking for someone to volunteer their Passat for a fitting in return for a free cover. I suppose I could fit a gasser, but I thought I'd check here first
I would be game for cover work. Since it's usually a bit colder up here in Canton. Hit -36f here twice last winter. I installed a Frostheater in November. I can see how a cover would help with salt too.
