      the myth..

      But it really does bug me to be reading an inaccurate speedo, it gives a false sense of speed or lack thereof......

      This is why every 16V owner thinks their car will do 160mph! LOL

      One huge mistake non-audiophiles make is NOT phasing the speakers.

    4. Mk1 3 types

      phase one= GIRLING (big caliper frame, one piston)
      phase two= TEVES
      phase three= ATE

      the ATE's I think can be 'converted' to 'thin' vented.

      he got a 79 so my guess is Teves.
    5. calipers

      The 3 types of Mk1 calipers are 'gauged' to run solid rotors. It's a dimensional deal here....they are not 'wide' enough for vented rotors.
      To the best of my knowledge, you'd have to upgrade...

      Dealership

      you are bringing your 26 year old Scirocco to the dealership to have them fix something that isn't even out of spec????

      This used to be a very common problem in the rust belt....probably seen this 25 times.

    10. expensive

      Like any German car (though not as bad as a Mercedes) Parts and service are very expensive....even more so in HI.

      metric stuff

      160 F = 71 C
      180 = 82 C
      185 = 85 C
      195 = 90.5 C

      so you're looking for one with a 70-80C range, thereabouts.

      Additionally, the one I have is a two prong for MK1 with the one speed fan.

      160 F

      Zigster... I run the 160 degree switch (I think!) ....AZ you know....it's been marvelous. The engine runs at normal temp about 185 (my guess).

      I'll see if I can get a number off of it.:wave:
