      Hey Tdotdub,

      have you checked out Frisco auto parts? They do just VW and Audi, I used to go there a lot when I lived in toronto, they even had parts in stock for my scirocco. Check out their mississauga location first since that's where they dismantle their cars.

      Hey, thanks for the info I know them but the thing is that there is like no beetle parts to be found there is that place and another place but no one really scraps beetles.. They scrap alot of other cars such as golfs, jettas, convertables etc. But for some reason I can't find any where people that have the parts I need.. And at the dealer its sooooooo much money.. But I will be forced to buy it one buy one soon.. If I don't find these parts buy spring.. Cuz for the winter I don't care if its in rough shape. And not to mention I will park my beetle for the winter any ways. The reason is the tdi's have like no heat cuz they are so efficent And there is nothing wrong with it. So I will drive a 93 passat diesel for a while. In mint shape and fully loaded except leather. And thoes diesels have alot more heat.. So I am still driving it now but not for long..

      Any ways I did an oil change, and cleaned my car

      I replaced my window lifter switches on my beetle yesterday.. I can actually roll down my window. Unlike for the last 10 months or so.

      i bought a battery tender last night so I can actually start it when I want to. Took it around the block a little bit as well. It seems it is liking the cold air.

      Guys is there any way I can do a syncro/4 motion swap? And than I could also get the shaft to the back welded up, so its an all time 4 wheel drive. Cuz after all the floor pans of the beetle is jetta and golf.. And the suspention is golf and jetta as well.. So would it should be possible... I'm trying to think but nothing is coming to my mind...

      After all a broken front bumper is fine, with a missing grill. Never the less a swap in my tdi would be nice... Or at least figure out to give it more boost from the turbo so I can speed up faster Any ideas guys?

      I helped my dad replace my front brakes, which were still the originals from 2003....Hopefully the new ones last just as long. I also wanted to replace my daisy wheels with the original set, but those tires are worn out. So Im stuck with the daisies for the winter unless I find a good deal on another set of tires....

      you have to buy adapters to run audi wheels or any other bolt patterns on our cars, basically its a spacer that bolts on then has the 5x112 bolt pattern for you to bolt the wheel too

      this is my set to run the MkV huffs on my beetle

      ECS tuning has them for 320$ in 20, 25, and 30mm so they are like spacers also.
