      Thanks man! It means a lot. I wish more people could see it because it is hard to capture all the little things in pictures. Just rolled over 158k miles on the way back, and it's still feeling and...

      Bump, sold the Mercedes and am slightly open to trades again, but prefer just to sell. This car has thousands into modifications, you can't buy this nice of a manual w8 and buy the same mods without...

      Waiting for response to PM, looking to buy injectors ASAP. Either buying yours or any of them on eBay.

      x2, if it's made of a better material why not keep it the same size and improve it's filtering capacity, instead of making it smaller and not improving how it filters.

      I think it should be round. My W8 uses the round ones, though some websites says it should use the D shaped hole one. Also, my 034 on turned hard as a rock, shrunk, and started to crack. Ended up...

      The OEM VW wheels? I doubt they're light at all... how much do they weigh?

      The spring is unlikely the main concern. I'd be much more concerned about the dampers. Look up "hybrid coilovers" and you can see write ups where guys take cheap race lands, disassemble them and...

      I'm talking with VIS Racing about doing a small run of carbon fibers hood for the B5.5. As you may know, there are only like 4 CF hoods in existence for the B5.5, and no one currently manufactures...

      Feeler: WTT for light weight 18" wheels

      Want to go a different direction...

      I have 19x9.5 Avant Garde M550. I'd give them a 8.5 out of 10. No curb rash or any damage. Just your average 10k miles of use on them. Never seen snow.
      They...

      Yes, direct bolt on. B6 or B7 S4 calipers, carriers and brake lines, B8 S4 or S5 rotors. I still have the stock W8 dust shields on, and they don't pose any problem, but you could just remove them...

      The joints rarely catastrophically fail without warning. When they're bad, you'll start making a clicking/popping sound, and even then you can go a while on that. A lot of people replace the entire...

      Well if the TC has already been replaced once lets hope you won't have a problem with it for a while. I do all my own work, and do it in my own garage without a lift. I bought my W8 at 114k and it...

      I think you need to check your numbers. There was only ~4,900 W8s total (auto and manual) sold in North America, and 6 speeds definitely do not make up most of them. Only 424 6 speed W8s made it...
