      So called synthetics should not sludge even at 10 OCI. I am guessing the previous owner did not use synthetic nor did he follow recommend OCIs. I'd use Liqui Moly engine flush to get rid of all of...

      11 months later I got a "replace battery" message. The original battery is 2025 but the 2032 (a bit thicker) fits too, which is what I got in there now. Hopefully it'll last longer. BTW: IKEA sells a...

      Probably why VW outsold Toyota again ;)

      US was the toughest obstacle and Wall Street is just pouring gasoline into the fire, as always.

      Should've plugged it :P.

      Seriously, you should post their name and address so that others can stay away from that hell hole. I would've made them pay for a new set of spacers.

      Wow, the old one looks bad. I wonder if the new design will hold up better. It looks substantially thicker or does it?

      I helped a friend of mine out TWICE! His RPMs went all the way to 8k the first time and 7800 the second time. Both times "mechanical overspeed, warranty void" codes were recorded,...

      bring the oil to a normal operating temperature, load the engine but don't abuse it. Don't forget that you're breaking in an entire car, not just an engine.

      Sonnen VW, I've had experience with those cats, bunch of arrogant douches. Don't give them a penny, better yet, if you can take your car elsewhere.

      I have just under 5k miles and mine are 60% done. I'll be lucky if i get 10k out of them. The 43PSI is how they ship them from factory, your dealer should've checked and adjusted them.

      Why not disclose their (dealership) names then send both of their sales and general managers a link to this thread? I bet Howard Stern wouldn't hesitate, I wouldn't either :)
