      The idea of a"universal coolant" is pure nonsense. you have to get ALL of the old coolant out or you will many times get the brown sludge if you put in a different type.

      Throw the supposed CAI and the K&N filter if you have one in the trash and go back to the OE filter box and filter.

      I'm just guessing, but later on, love isn't the only thing he will have all over his face. Seriously, all in all, some pretty horrid stuff.:screwy:

      No, not really. Observe the touch down point on any runway. Tons of skid marks. When tires go from zero RPM's to what ever speed the airplane is landing at in about 1/2 a second, guess what skid...

      Americans are just uptight and backwards. I was in Southern France doing some airplane work and you can't believe how embarrassing it to travel abroad with some Americans.

      I would agree with this. The ALH, BEW and BRM turbos will quit often go 300K miles with proper maintenance. With the CR turbos, you will be lucky to get 100K miles.

      I know that one. Someone did that to a coworker. He ended up calling the corporate IT help desk and it took them about 1/2 an hour to talk him through "un-effing" his computer....

      I have fond memories of WH when I was contracting in Mobile. It seem like anytime anyone might give you directions to somewhere, there was always a reference of making a turn at a WH along the way.

      No, you don't need a lift.

      Get one of these and 4 jack stands. Ramps will make the job a lot harder because the car would be tilted.

      What is the point of your post? I'm on my fifth Dub with no real issues. It does seem that VW "crapped in their mess kit" on the latest emissions issue.

      Wow quite the adventure. I could really care less about a blue Tooth issue because I would not even use the feature if my car even had it.

      Why would Phaetons in the U.S. be involved since they were not imported into the U.S. since what was it 2004?

      The current shenanigans involve common rail engines made between 2009 and 2014.
