      2) The Mk3 calipers do not have to be reversed, installed...

      I actually think an S1 dash would be easier to make than the S2 dash was, since the S1 instrument pod has a more basic shape. The main deviation from correct appearance would be to omit the zillion...

      I don't think VW includes timing covers to keep fingers out. By that logic, they would need to cover the alternator belt too.

      I think their intention would have been to avoid engine failures by...
