hello all- long time no read :)
I am still thoroughly happy with my baby approaching 100k, however..
I have had a repeated issue over the last ~4 years, my MK5 has now 'eaten' THREE cruise...
Actually in my case, it's almost definitely the ballast or igniter - the bulb was replaced 6 months ago, and has been turning more and more orange over the last couple weeks. New bulb failed to even...
now playing on my status LCD every engine start:
**FRONT LEFT DIPPED BEAM NOT WORKING!**
So does anybody have the proper p/n for a new OEM ballast, or know what I could replace it with...
Most of us I'm sure don't check the 'appropriate' forum frequently, but I saw this on CNN today. Almost as momentous as the passing of the Beetle in Mexico, I think. :beer:
This thread mirrors EXACTLY what I thought about the VW scene when I got my Turbo Beetle 10 years ago. Originally it was a company car - you remember when companies thought driving a...
so here's the followup: I did bring my concerns to the service manager about the CV boots being under warranty. She said she would inquire with the technician who worked on it, what the...

FYI - as a satisfied and mostly-loyal HPA customer ;) I will say their products are solid and top-notch, but yes - the support is sometimes questionable or sporadic. Once it works, it's bulletproof....
IMHO It is almost 99% guaranteed the LOWER tensioner/idler.
Mine started buzzing in the middle (Utah!) of my 8000km round-trip roadtrip from AB to AZ last Christmas. I got it checked in Phoenix...
Oddly enough, I've never seen Petro-Canada's "Ultra 94" gas even though it's supposedly sold here in Alberta. My...
I've also sent Chris a PM regarding pricing and parts for an install here in Canada. I have talked to some locals about installation and they seem enthused to be part of the process. My biggest...
Mexico? No.. We're terribly sorry.. the OP is from Barcelona you see.
I'll give you 3 reasons:
And 2 of these guys:
What did that poor innocent car ever do to you??
How durable is the finish? I love my Ultraleggeras, but I've basically replaced a wheel every summer for 3 years now. (cracks and warping, not just scratches) :(
Hate to pee in the cornflakes, but doesn't powdercoating usually weaken the metal, especially with aluminum wheels? :confused:
Anodizing is a very different process.
well played sir.
I appreciate your performance mods, and the noise-pipe and muffler are fine too, but I hate.. HATE..HATE :mad: pointless *bling*.
