      Faulty Fuel Gauge Question

      So I've owned my R for a little over 2 years now and when I bought it, the fuel gauge was already faulty. The owner told me it had been that way for the last 20k miles. The car has 70k miles on it...

      My CEL comes on more often since having mine tuned. It's usually associated with intake/air. I have had it spit out a MAF code several times, however it usually resolves itself fairly quickly....

      Thanks you guys! All good ideas. I'd take a set of any one of those wheels. Keeping my eyes on local classifieds.... I'm sure something will turn up before winter. I've always loved Montes, Long...

      Awesome, thanks to both of you. Do you need any spacers to run either of these wheels or do they work keeping everything stock? No changes to front brakes or anything? I know I can pick up some cheap...
    9. Winter Wheel ideas/other VW compatible wheels?

      I'm currently on 18x8 front 18x9 rear Avant Garde M310's with summer tires. I'm looking into options for next winter. I'd love to keep it as cheap as possible. I've searched what I can in the MKIV...

      I'm positive.... I could flex the aluminum skid plate with my hand and recreate the same exact noise I was hearing while driving. The two bushings have completely eliminated the noise. However, my...

      Thank you. :thumbup:

      Thanks, but this doesn't answer my question. How much of a tire size difference is "harmful" to the coupling hardware? That's what I'm looking for if anyone knows.

      Glad I look like an idiot now... haha so does tire radius/size even matter on the R's?
    16. Tire sizes/Center differential question

      Ok, question for you guys. I'm shopping for new tires. I currently have 225/40R18 on the front and 255/35R18 on the rear. I know it's important to have the same size radius tires on AWD cars. The...

      Update. I finally had time to swing by and see my mechanic. We went for a drive around the block and within a block he said, "That sounds like sheet metal flexing." Immediately I knew what it was. I...
