      I'd suggest a 55 over a 50-series tire. A bit more sidewall for comfort - and much closer to the stock 225/60/16.

      Stock diameter = 26.6"
      225/55 diameter = 26.7"
      225/50 diameter = 25.9"

      A friend of mine just picked up a Serron-equipped '14 Wolfsburg here in the San Diego area.

      They look great (far better than the Detroits from previous years), but I still prefer my Lagunas.

      I, too, had a tough time deciding between the two. But in the end, the GTI won out because of how much fun it is. Plus, I've already owned several Golfs, as well as VW diesels, but never a GTI. Since...

      Thanks guys! With my luck, it would be a part that would go on closeout for about $14 a week or two after I had paid full pop.
    6. Affordable source for EV sliding door guides?

      Hi all -

      I'm tired of my banged-up sliding door guide being worn out (and spraying silicone on the track frequently). Has anyone been able to find the center guide for significantly less than...

      Exactly. No sense for a RWD mid-sized van. When I want RWD, I reach for one of these toys from my garage:

      You're probably better off in the MkI forum. We're mostly EuroVan and Vanagon owners here. Good luck!

      That's also in a Vanagon.

      Cool regardless though.

      I will have to say that my EV's chairs are some of the most comfortable seats I've used for long days behind the wheel. Curious how my my back...

      How long ago was 50k miles? As Europarts-SD states, it's on the seventh revision.

      And no need to have a dealer replace it, most anyone can do it themself in ten minutes tops.

      Nice writeup (as always), Cole. Thanks for sharing.

      I'd have a Sprinter in my fleet if my budget and lifestyle allowed for it. More of the former than the latter.

      Consider wheels that are rated/intended for use on heavier VAG products - like A8s, Phaetons, Bentleys and the like. IIRC, all have the same 5x112 BCD.

      Unplug the Soundaktor. That was the first thing I did.

      Second mod for me was bolting on a receiver hitch for my bike rack.

      A plaid license plate frame was the third and final mod.

      Enjoy...
