      I've run Mobil1 0W40 since my R32's first 500 mile oil change. At 135k miles now, and she's been in temps from -6*F to 118*F. Never any issues.

      However, my 12V VR6 Corrado, which has also run...

      Thanks for the info on the snowflake. Glad to know it's a limited range and that my cluster is operating properly.

      Still don't understand why the cold start high idle does not kick in below...
    3. No Snowflake icon below 20*F? And other cold weather weirdness

      Just a random question... am an original owner, but this is my first time driving the .:R32 through a serious winter. Local temps have ranged from -2*F on up to 28*F the past few weeks or so. I've...

      Oh yes, it was absolutely worth it :)

      Had a blast! And now that I don't have to worry about breaking anything, since it's already broken, it's game on until the thaw. :thumbup:

      Well, it's not like the WITW guys have a legal trademark or copyright on the word "wookie" to begin with. Lucasfilm beat them to the punch in 1977. So...

      Good to know. I sent a PA to David to rebuild, and though I have received it, I have not installed it yet. Waiting for things to be a little warmer before I dive into that.
      Hopefully mine works...
    8. Apparently our power steering pumps do not like lock to lock abuse while doing donuts in the snow

      Just a PSA in case anyone was thinking of trying out their .:R32 in the snow with dreams of doing mad donuts and wild power slides across icy parking lots...

      Our power steering pumps are not up to...

      You should also double check that both hood pins are correctly adjusted to the proper length. If one is longer than the other, it will give you issues like you describe.

      Sitting in a Corrado is like sitting in a sled. You bottom is scant inches from the ground.

      It makes sitting in a Jetta feel like sitting in a minivan by comparison.

      Sold my first one, which was a very well sorted out car. Regretted it ever since.

      I was experiencing the same thing. I replaced just the lower dogbone mount with the ECS performance mount, and that alone seemed to stiffen everything up. Very easy installation.

      Dave at KK did great work. Had one charger built by him, and that was the one on my G60 when it went off the cliff. Still pumping hard, now transplanted into a San Diego Mk1 rabbit.

      TPS often produces no codes when it goes bad.
      Especially when it's not the sensor component that has failed, but the mechanical element that makes it turn with the throttle.
      Take the sensor off,...

      Strange as it sounds, it's probably related to a bad ground connection in the engine bay. Check the driver side of the cylinder head, by the thermostat housing. If that connection is corroded,...
