      Sounds like you ran into VW's biggest on-going problem, their terrible dealer network. I wouldn't be certain that the 50k service would have turned anything up, as it's a glorified oil change. The...

      Adding my 2 cents, if you do want an epoxy coating on your floor, spend the (not small) money on having it done by the guys that do it for industrial applications. The DIY home boxes are what go to...

      I swear I'm not trying to derail the thread, but some things I can't abide. FALSE, and FALSE on the above quote. A CD sounds much better than a mp3 encoded at a crappy bitrate, but over ~256kbit,...

      Huh, I thought the "Single Side Parking Light" was only a rest-of-the-world feature. Are you the original owner? if not, someone might have recoded (with a VAGCOM) the car to enable it at some...

      I thought the same thing when I did mine, but I'd be hesitant to shim it, as anything harder than it would end up abrading the poly. The "bumpers" on the ends of mine were fairly worn too. I'm...

      If you don't want to notch the frame, you could try adding bigger bump stops, so you bottom out the suspension on them before you clip the axle, but I'd imagine you'll be riding off of those fairly...
