      Very direct comparison. This car has been for sale for a couple months. Price just dropped from $850 I think it was. Basically the exact same car, similar mileage but a dry California car for $700.

      I bought my girlfriend's Wolfsburg Edition for $100. Wouldn't start, needed new battery cables. And then fuel pumps. We're into it now for maybe $450 including purchase, but it still need some bits.

      They're not compatible. You need different calipers to make this work. Either Rabbit GTi calipers and carriers or 4 cylinder Audi 4000/Coupe calipers and carriers, though I'm not sure if those pads...
