      Nice! IMO these carry the torch for what Volvo did best in the 80s and 90s with the 245, 745, 855, and 945 turbos—building practical, conservatively styled wagons that also hauled serious ass.

      Nice! I've already seen two GSW S 4motions on the road here in Denver. The basic but functional feature set along with AWD is a compelling option for folks who have older Subarus and don't want a...

      Wow, looks great! If I didn't know that the B6 Passat never came with the 2.5 I'd think it was original!

      Nice score on the Audi wheels. FYI you can totally disable TPMS or change it to the...

      Easiest way is to get a wrecked donor car of the same model year. Not sure if the ECUs would need to be swapped or if you can just re-code yours. The transmission isn't DSG by the way, it's a regular...

      My money is on the switch. VW Part number 3C0927225C. ECS tuning has OEM replacements for $60. Don't be tempted by the cheaper aftermarket ones.

      It's better to re-tap it for a larger bolt if the threads in the pan are indeed stripped.

      I'd call it a trade-off rather than a flaw. To make it possible to remove the HID bulbs from the back a whole lot of things under the hood would need to be re-arranged, reducing the amount of parts...

      All the modules are networked and relay messages to modules that are downstream, so a communications fault in one cascades through that branch of the system. It's a characteristic common to all cars...

      The Polo actually held up pretty well, considering the difference in mass. The driver's left leg below the knee was in the danger zone but I'm not sure severe injury would have been guaranteed.

      So this is based on the SWB Tiguan whereas the Kodiaq is based on the LWB Tiguan, correct? Interesting that Škoda was the first brand to get the LWB compact SUV and not VWoA or one of the Chinese VW...

      I can't justify the expense to register, insure, and maintain more than one vehicle per driver. At least not the kind of car I want to drive. That's city living for you.

      For what you're doing a VAG-COM is definitely worth it. You can actually query the individual modules in the car, log live data, and get much, much more detailed info than with a generic scanner. I...

      This happened to me a couple of years ago and it actually ended up being the rear drains.

      The drain lines are attached to the sunroof frame with slip-on connectors which are not designed to hold...
