      I'm not siding with either of them because they're all stupid.

      I have a 1993 GL with Bilstein HDs. They are firm but I would not want them firmer. On a heavier VR6 camper I would think they'd be even more suitable for the job.

      Can't speak for the other...

      I would make sure that you're not confusing engine noise and exhaust noise. The 5-cylinder does have a bit of a boomy exhaust note but I don't find it to be crazy loud. One thing that helped a lot...

      Not bad, although by its 1992 debut it also looked a bit dated right out of the box. That's what the Jetta should have looked like in 1989 but VW stretched out the mk2s forever.

      The turn signal trick only works on non-Xenon cars from what I remember.

      On a Xenon car, you use a VAGCOM.

      Canada is largely the cause for larger bumpers today. They pretty much kept their ~8km/h standard (modeled after the old US 5-mph standard) and those manufacturers or importers who send or import...

      Also make sure you change the coolant temperature sensor. Those were known to go bad on VR6s and cause poor fuel economy.
