      Yes, cylinders are always numbered in order. The firing order does not affect the cylinder numbering. Cylinder 3, on a 5 cylinder engine, will always be the one in the middle.

      First you could start by asking this question in the mk4 forum, which is MKIV. Then, probably get a tune, put bigger injectors on, sticky tires, new suspension, bigger turbo, etc.

      Superficial, wouldn't worry about it.

      If it's cut into, replace, if it's just rubbed off like that, you're not at any risk.

      Just doubling down on what Xeno said. The only towing issues you would have would be based inside the transmission. On a manual, extra wear on the clutch, on a DSG, the equivalent. Depending on the...

      I'm amused that you're upset because the bead/inner lip is scratched. Have you ever mounted a tire before?

      If you're upset about that stuff, you might not want to put them on your car, because...

      I'll sell you some MKVI TDI seats for cheap. With some creative welding, they'd go in beautifully.

      I wouldn't ever expect any tire that's decent at anything to go over 20k. Lets be honest, tires that last 50k+ aren't good at anything except for not wearing.

      Plus, in those 20k, you'll be able...

      With a cutoff tool they should be somewhat close to a drop in. The rails have downward facing tabs on the front to lock into a hole, which mk4's and lower don't have, so you'd have to cut those off. ...

      For cheap grip look no further than the Hankook Ventus Evo k12 (or whatever the hell it's called now). Solid daily driver tire with real summer tire grip. Not crazy sticky, but superior to any stock...

      '11 tdi (Built October '10) with almost 100k on the clock. I've run b20, b5, d1, d2, you name it. No issues whatsoever. I've only lost 2 batteries and a few tires. And I cracked the rear tire cover...

      I don't believe there is a female version, but there are bike racks intended for goose neck style hitches that somehow mount to the ball. It's all sorcery or witchcraft to me.

      I think you end up...

      Quick turn in is Toe based.

      You spent bucks on suspension, did you buy good tires?

      I'm curious as to the how. What happened when it stopped working? Did you hit a big pothole, was it raining, or did you turn it on one day and there was just no tach?

      The sensor inside of the seat belt latch is specific to mk6's. It's 2 wires, but I think the specific resistance that comes from it is important. I put mk5 seats in my car and rewired the belts...

      It would depend on how dead the battery was. If you've been noticing it draining and giving you hard starts - and it finally doesn't crank, this wouldn't help.
