      Get ready for the rest of the cloth to start sagging. A-pillars, headliner, c-pillars, door trim. Whatever adhesive VW used, it ain't holding up.

      They may be far for some people, but nobody beats their prices on OEM parts; and they're a VW dealership.

      I think all AT VWs prior to the MKV models had junk transmissions. I know the MKIVs w/ATs are avoided like the plague. MKIIIs aren't any better.
