      Then you're not quite doing it right, and/or your service management locked down MPI too much.

      Here's what I'd do, if I were doing that inspection:

      Yes, yes it is.
      It's one (of several) reasons that the Scirocco is fed Mobil 1 15w50. As I recall, that weight M1 is the only one to still have ZDDP in it.

      I think Rotella T 15w40 would...

      Mann, Mahle, Napa Gold - these are generally accepted to be the 'best' filters to use. The orange filters, stay away.

      There's no such thing as a "synthetic oil" filter. Who told you that?

      I'd worry more about the front end. And, I'd maybe find a different shop to do my alignment, too. Fixing the front camber issue isn't hard. ;)

      Hella H4/H1 combo? Very much still available. Hell, I've seen them on Amazon.

      The "BMW setup" would be (IIRC) E30 projectors. A bit more work to do those.

      Well, pulling an injector will render the car un-startable. Because the hole you just put in the intake is more than large enough to satisfy the engine for air during cranking.

      You're referring to this, right?




      Not a BMW. Dodge Caliber.

      Nasty wreck, though. Don't often see a car impaled on a guardrail.

      You're correct.
      The 'upper' (low pressure) switch is a normally-open switch, closes at 0.3 bar. The 'lower' (high pressure) switch is normally-closed, opens at 1.8 bar (IIRC.)
