      I think only the 16v Scirocco must have the spring on the clutch pedal - none of my 84s have it.

      I added a scangauge to the Prius to be able to see the RPM and the coolant temperature.

      What I found is that I never EVER look at the RPM because it's really irrelevant in a Prius. The RPM of the...

      The early tanks do have an issue with fuel starvation on very hard right turns with 1/4 tank or less. I think that's one reason they redesigned it to have two pumps and that fuel reservoir.

      There are actually two desirable 8v mk2 models:

      The 1983 Wolfsburg edition had a 1.8 instead of the 1.7 of the regular 1983 Scirocco. It also had a close ratio transmission, large spoiler, special...

      I change my oil in the spring before I start driving it.

      Last year I put 73 miles on my car. I still changed that oil.

      From Pirelli's website about their tires:



      If that's what the tire manufacturer says - do you really think BMW is going to do something not recommended? No. They can't do that.
