      Had some "good quality" mk1 euro fenders I gave to a buddy that required a good bit of work the get to fit reasonably, and that is all. I'll take good condition used OEM over crappy new any day.

      Wow, I have never seen one that bad! Remember to lube the filter o-ring before install and only tighten 3/4 to 1 full turn past contact. Shoot, I don't think I need to tell you, the previous owner...

      Today I pressed some .:R bushings into a spare set of control arms, picked up a remanned long side axle, and picked up 4 qts of oil to go with the Mann filter for an oil change. (All on the wife's)

      Did you put the appropriate flare on the brass extension for the AN fitting to seal to? If not I suspect you will have a leak.

      Mk1 Autohaus I'm pretty sure carries complete, new front lower sections to be welded in, as the factory would have. Labor intensive and not cheap, $400+ for the part, IIRC, but thought it was cool...

      Dropped one and broke it polishing it in the garage. Could have seriously hurt myself after that. Took them out of the bumper in the 'yard and caught the lense as it fell out, but dropped it in my...

      Sounds like some bad vacuum leaks, the bane of any CIS injected VW. At 30 years of age it's good practice to replace every rubber bit under the hood you can. Vacuum hoses, idle screw o-ring, and...

      While this will work, please use some type automotive butt connector with heat shrink instead of wire nuts, they have no business in any automotive application, except an absolute emergency.

      I've had to tack weld those rings in place on many rears, such a lame design. And I blasted a rear shock mount apart on my e46 on a pothole going around NYC one time. Just glad the 16s were on and I...

      I'm sorry but I have to disagree with the stock 16V mileage, try 32-34 mpg on the highway. With no vacuum leaks and a fresh tune up it is perfectly feasible, I've seen it in 2.0L mk2 GLI. This is...
