      The 0W40 Mobile 1 European Formula meets VW 504 specifications. Like you said, WalMart for $22 for 5 qts. I have used it for the past 10K miles (2 oil changes) and have had no issues.

      Got it resolved. For anyone else who might have this problem, the equivalent locally available option is a #10 x 5/8" Sheet Metal Screw. However, if your original screw stripped out, a #12 x 3/4"...

      Okay, so I have a Modshack CAI. I went to pull it today to clean the filter and noticed that one of the torx screws (OEM) that mounts the brackets to the front of the engine bay is missing. Anyone...

      I think they offer a little on the butt dyno. I have had the carbonio and the Modshack intakes. I prefer the Modshack.

      Check the wiring in the trunk. I was getting all sorts of "lights out" messages and it was a bad wire or two in the trunk lid.

      If it were a Honda or Toyota, I would say don't get the warranty. But on on this car, I don't think warranty protection is such a bad idea. However, $1,630 for 24 months is not a good deal. I...

      Even if you don't do a lot of your own maintenance, it is worth having. Many independent mechanics will charge for a scan just like the dealer will. Usually about $90--$100. When I have had...

      Not a dumb question at all. I asked it last year. It's left to right (standing in front of the car looking at the engine) 1-2-3-4.
