      I'm afraid I don't know a source for original wheels. I think they would have just been steels? A lot of people put on Panasports, which I think look killer on these. I personally have Enkei 92's...

      The 1.8 tsi in the Passat is the EA888 gen 3. Main difference IMO would be that the new engine has direct injection instead of port injection. The turbocharger is also now bolted directly to the...

      I would say not original. I think the only metallic color Datsun used on those cars was silver (and beige grey). There should be a paint code sticker near the hood latch on the cowl if I remember...

      Update on this.

      Technician cannot see where the oil leak is coming from; dye was added to the oil. I will need to go back to the dealer after accumulating approximately 500 miles for a recheck. ...

      Haha, exactly. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but I was kinda hoping I was done with oil leaks on daily cars. I expected my old Rabbit to leak some oil, but not on this. At any rate, now the...

      Thanks snobrdrdan,

      Spot on additions.

      For the threads and such, I went with WD-40 just as a barrier for the whole assembly. I used a wide spray nozzle to coat the coilovers and the tops of the...

      Right, helper springs are just there to keep the main spring from flopping about when the car is lifted (or going over a jump).

      Yes, the dampening is fixed on the Type Is. By progressive, I mean that the springs are not a constant rate. So small bumps use a softer section of the spring coil. When you hit a big bump the...

      I believe this was an issue I remember seeing with Nissans in particular. What happens is on cold start, shut off shortly after startup. The residual fuel washes the oil off of the cylinder walls...

      Hi rain988,

      I believe the warranty for creaks and rattles for VW is 1 year/10,000mi. It's stated somewhere in the manual, don't remember where exactly.

      I think the noisy brake issue can be...

      US cars did not get the secondary injectors. Although looking at my '15 Passat's intake manifold, there are injector bungs for a second set. The holes just aren't drilled.

      There's a sticker just below the cam phaser that has a barcode on it. The engine code is by the bar-code, it should read CPR or CPK.

      I believe the CPRA is the California emissions engine which has the secondary air. The CPKA would be the non California equivalent without secondary air. If I am wrong, hopefully someone will...
