      I believe if you hit the brakes, it will re-engage and try to save your bacon. That's all I've heard of.

      Going on now, come get my parts please! Off of SW Fairview Blvd in Portland, just follow the garage sale signs!
    3. Garage sale Sat 7/19, PDX: all parts must go!

      Having a garage sale this Saturday, 7/19, near the Portland Japanese Gardens. I'd like to get rid of all my mk1 parts, may well recycle/trash it all if it's not claimed, it's been 2 years since I've...

      The R would be fine with just one kid - flip the other side of the 60/40 seat down to help fit a stroller and leave room for groceries. Might even work fine with two kids, sending the stroller...

      I think if your DP is too loud, adding a CBE to compensate is probably not going to do it. Maybe change to a diff DP instead? Then again, I know next to nothing about this, it just seems weird to...

      Depreciation never factored into my decision to buy the R. Got what I thought was a good deal, and am thrilled with the car every time I see it and drive it, still after almost 2 years. That right...

      Couldn't wait 'til Sunday, eh? Congrats!

      Never had a mkIV R32, always coveted it, but just didn't make sense for me. The 4dr was a must for me, and having had it now I must say I wouldn't go...

      XSSIVE had a really great thread with tons of good information. I followed his recommendation for waterless wash (lots of microfiber towels, and a spray bottle) with Meguiar's D115. Works well for...

      Yeah, I was barely OK with replacing just one. I believe you can get away with replacing just two, since our cars aren't full time AWD, but yeah, it's best to have all 4 the same tread depth. From...

      I've been dreaming of building a stretched Golf R to replace the odyssey... Minivan form factor is really perfect for my needs, though it makes me want to hang myself whenever I drive it. Our...

      I had a flat and had to replace a tire due to sidewall damage (screw in the edge of the tread ate up the sidewall when the tire went flat). I believe it ended up being about $200 for the new tire,...

      I did EBC yellow pads on the front of our odyssey (fighting the worst brakes I've ever witnessed on a production car), and they dusted quite a bit in that application, for whatever that's worth...

      That's really expensive, but I think about right - those dunlops aren't cheap. Depending on the wear I'd maybe look at replacing all tires with some summer tires (assuming you don't need the all...

      That was r-lab or something. He was using Maestro, I think, and ended up giving up due to lack of customer support. I believe he went back to Evos. Shame, as I was really interested in his...

      Plastic yogurt cups, put upside down on your work surface. They're smaller than the lip, so drips will just go to the surface, and if they do get glue on them, it won't stick (they're smooth...

      West Systems also makes fillers you add to the epoxy for faring. It's all stuff made for boat hulls, good stuff.

      Looking forward to seeing the finished product!
