      Wow. Wouldn't have thought of that! I adjusted the rear proportioning valve to give a tiny bit more rear brake pressure. It's been years but if my old memory serves it helped a bit with turn in. It...

      I have a 2004 V8 4.2. The check engine light flashed. VCDS said it was a coil. Called VW. Dealer said there was a recall. They paid for towing and replaced all 8 coils for no charge. No problem...

      Very cool! Thanks for sharing! Looks like a great trip indeed. You were smart to bring the camping gear. If something goes awry up here in the winter the gear could really make a difference.

      There is no such thing as having a program for life. Operating systems won't stand still. Eventually there won't be an operating system left that runs the program you buy today. You will eventually...

      I have no clue. My half-sisters hate me because my dad wasn't a worthless POS like their dad was. F 'em. Mom died in '08 so it's been six peaceful years that I haven't had to talk to them. Don't talk...

      All I did on my 04 V8 was change the battery and clear all the existing codes. It's been fine for two years since. Hope this helps.

      Consider a wireless system instead. Mag mount, so it's versatile and you don't have to splice wires. :) http://www.etrailer.com/Electronics/Swift-Hitch/04928.html

      I *think* it's the same as the A8 but others smarter than me will know better.

      In winter with 235/75/17 studded tires I get around 18.5 on the freeway. Our speed limit is 75mph which really kills...

      Mine is back to shifting very poorly when cold and slightly poorly when warm. Installed the rebuilt valve body this January with Amsoil fluid. It shifted fine at first and has gotten worse through...

      Carrying around a baby, baby gear, a DSLR, flash and selection of lenses? For us, a DSLR was too much to pack everywhere we went. So many "baby picture moments" are short notice - you need to have...

      I do everything I can to it myself. I paid to have the timing belt/water pump/thermostat done but have done everything else to it. Changed the stepper motor, transmission valve body, headlight bulbs,...

      Not sure as I have an 04 without that option. The Bentley says it uses a 30A fuse for the supply. My standalone inverter allegedly supplies 200 watts and uses around 10 amps. I'd be willing to bet...

      I've had to do a bit of work to mine. Late model 04. On average I spend about $200US/month on repairs and maintenance. Drivetrain mostly - if you get one change the fluids in the diffs and trans...

      I've done both just to see what happens. Never because I got stuck though. Sand, gravel, rocks, boulders, snow, mud, ice - it's just always worked better with ESP off and either range - high or low....
