      Stumbled upon this at my LHBS last week:

      It's stupid good, and in the top 5 best beers I've ever had. I think they're the only brewery using this distilled hop...

      That would be my guess as well. Mine is doing similar, though not quite as loud as yours. My turn signal/hazard relay is also on the fritz, and it's a much different sound and not as rhythmic as what...

      Slim possibility, but possible nonetheless: the ABS could have been coded out of the ECU via VCDS.

      In such a scenario I suspect the ABS unit would respond to VCDS checks, but would not engage...

      I've got an OE NA rear sway bar. Can get pics later if needed. It's been sitting in my garage for a couple years since I replaced it with an OE Euro version.

      The thermostat housing is prone to cracking as well and could be the source of the leak. However, since you can smell coolant in the car it could also be a cracked heater core.

      Of the two I think...

      The original post wasn't displaying properly for me - looked like it had been converted to HTML instead of BB code, so it was a wall of text and didn't show the images. I found the image links still...

      I'm not so sure. Looked to me like the Red car was just keeping a safe gap to the car ahead, not camping, and didn't like the black car feeling the need to jump that gap. I get peeved when people try...

      I used G2 caliper paint on my R32's calipers. I never liked the factory blue (Jazz?) of the caliper combined with Deep Blue Pearl of the car, so I painted them red.

      It has held up pretty well for...

      Greetings. I received a micro batch (1 gallon) home brew kit for x-mas, and like every other hobby I take up I've become obsessed.

      I'm just doing extract brews for now to learn my way through the...

      Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

      I went by the yard to get a couple last things out of the A3 and spotted the Passat we actually hit a couple cars away from our A3. You can see it in the background...

      Pictures are of the right car. Maybe the insurance card was out dated. I'll bow to TCL's wisdom that it was a Jetta. Headed to the tow yard today to grab a few missed odds and ends. Will double...

      Dunno why everyone is saying Jetta. The insurance card says 2012 Passat. A VIN search says 2012 Passat 2.5. Y'all need to brush up on your VW identification skills :P

      That's the plan. The pain isn't bad, but it's stiff and by the end of the day all the muscles up there are exhausted from holding up my dome.




      While I agree in principle, what should she have...
    15. Mrs. Figurefive Does It Again: Is It Totaled Edition

      So last April I wrote about my wife's wreck when an elderly woman turned in front of her. We ended up with a 2012 Audi A3 out of that, and well, lightning struck again last night.

      We were headed...

      Thanks all. I gave the new pan a decent wipe down inside and cleaned all the residue off the bottom of the block. The new pan is on. I'm giving it the full 24 hours for the Permatex to cure, though...
    17. New oil pan: what cleaning/prep needed?

      So, I somehow ended up with a hole in my oil pan. Long story short: water pump seized which shredded the serpentine belt. Had the car towed to the dealer. They found the hole in the oil pan. Pretty...

      Well, there's no oil or obvious residue in the area I saw my car sitting after the tow truck dropped it off.

      The water pump has already been installed. The pump itself was $112. The rest of the...

      I'm fully prepared to do the pan myself. The pump is a different matter. In theory you're supposed to remove the bumper cover and pull out the support to get at everything - not something I'd like to...
