      {chuckle} Sounds like quite the adventure, Steve... Right on the coast? Looks rather desolate all 'round, I agree... I'd want something reliable, too! ;)

      {chuckle} Consider it confirmed... ;) Absolutely no need to play with the timing belt at all... Brian's DIY's are good and shouldn't steer you wrong... My personal preference is to change the...

      x2... Take a look on Broke's site and it will clarify the pin/harness arrangement when you get ready to jumper between the two different types of connections: http://brokevw.com/reverseswitch.html.

      Cool find, Steve... Thanks for sharing it... I'm amongst those that hadn't seen one (now I'll probably notice tons of them in a Santiago photography contact's images... {chuckle}...

      Very much do-able... Take a look at Brian's two links in the post above. Do NOT try to get by without the spring compressor for the front struts (if a spring will put a hole through a cinder block...

      Yep, I've been pleased with the Gabriels on mine, as well... I was curious to see if anyone was using them with OEM springs and what the results were (I had installed mine with Neuspeed SofSports...

      Can't attest to using those from the Scirocco... I <i>do</i> have to question using the used springs, considering those from GAP aren't <i>that</i> expensive. Trust me, I know <i>all</i> about...

      x2 I think those are the best looking aftermarket tail-lights available, as well, for they just look "right"... They've got a "modern-but-OEM" look to them, as do the front turn signals chosen...

      Obviously, it is all a matter of priorities and, if you feel you really <i>must</i> sell one or more, a matter of deciding which one(s) you'll miss the least. Everyone's already mentioned what I'm...

      Seems like a good moment to toss this one in (it's not the image I recall but close enough...)... This is obviously a "no-go", as well:

      That was my first thought until I noticed it's an '89 like mine... It shouldn't have that after-run sensor on the valve cover, should it? Mine lacks it but, as I've mentioned in the past, that...

      I agree with Brian... Go ahead and get the new wheel bearing just for the peace of mind. Anything that gets dinged/nicked will only lead to it failing prematurely anyway and it doesn't take much to...

      I've not ordered those from GAP specifically <i>but</i> I've also <i>never</i> gotten anything from them in the past that I considered substandard or junk, either. I always feel confident that I'll...

      First thing I'd check, as well. Is the shifter "floppy" now or feel like it has a weird/loose pattern? I ask since you didn't mention that specifically but that'd be my first guess... If...

      No, those are aftermarket. The OEM's are the ones GAP lists just above the ATE's... I honestly don't know how much "meat" is on the ATE's when new. Depending on how true/warpage-free those were,...

      Hey, ya know that spring kinda looks like it might go to a bike... Just a thought... {chuckle} Sorry, couldn't resist... :P

      Yes, I suppose they would act as such, since they apparently machined them at the maximum wear depth. I think it's secondary to clearing heat/gas/contaminants from the surface of the rotor. ...

      Nope, no spring there, if you're speaking of the Phillips head screw that holds the rotor to the hub... And that screw isn't absolutely necessary, either, since it simply holds everything in line...
