      I should be there. I'll be with a yellow B5 S4, I'm blue and should have LM reps on (swapping from my GTI).

      Alright, after a tad more searching, this answers the space question. GTI is ~15 cu. ft. X1 HAS to be ~25, just a lot of sites reporting it incorrectly as ~15.

      A perfect direct comparison!

      I'm seeing half the sites reporting ~15, the other reporting ~25 (both with seats up). I'm thinking about test driving one as a replacement for the...

      I'll be attempting it here soon. Mine is definitely on the outside, as I can feel the little cracks.

      Trying to avoid new housings if possible, as even reps are ~$200/each. I'm also hunting...

      Weird. I found sources saying the X1 had just shy of 15 cubic feet of cargo room, putting it the same as a GTI. Now I'm seeing 25... :screwy:

      That does look deeper than the GTI's hatch, so 25...

      The more I see them in a nicer trim level, the more I like them. I was disappointed to find out it's got practically the same measurements as my R32 or GTI inside. I realize it's not a large...

      I don't think the waves are that big of a deal. The more important part is simply using a good filter (which MANN is), good oil, and changing them on a regular basis based on how you drive. The...
