      Just my experience -
      The one they used at the tire shop I went to crushed my sideskirts. While there was no permanent damage/deformation to the plastic, the paint definitely had hairline spider...

      If you're willing to pay top dollar, have you looked into just getting your seats reupholstered? It may be cheaper. Just a thought. :)

      OK, and now compare that production number against 1.8Ts plus 2.0s plus TDIs plus 2.8s and graph it out. Considering MkIVs are still being sold in Brazil and Argentina you're going to come up with...

      They could've just bought a 1.8T and bought a body kit for it.
      Instead they rip out everything that makes it an R32 except the body kit.

      Good thing these cars aren't limited edition or...

      What do you do with old coil packs?

      Toss them? Recycle them? Tear into them? Art project?

      Fixed, sort of. Finally found and pulled the fuse. It's on the relay panel inside the dash panel under the steering wheel (sometimes listed as thirteenfold relay panel). The fuse for the brake...

      Interesting...

      It actually doesn't run all the time. After I shut down the engine, there's a two minute delay from the time I've shut down the ignition and when the pump starts running. Could it...

      Just had a sec to run out to the parking lot at work and recheck everything, and it seems that it's not the ABS pump. It's some pump that's underneath the car, driver's side, just above the subframe....

      ABS Pump Won't Stop Running

      Ugh :rolleyes:

      OK, somehow changing the coil packs Friday night triggered my ABS pump to run non-stop, and I can't figure out how to get it to stop. As soon as I plugged in the last harness to the...

      38mm is fine for a GT35(R). If you want optimal performance, just make sure that the hole in the manifold is gasket matched; it's a common fix to get optimal performance from the wastegate.
