      Anyone have an extra set of 1.8t spark plugs (preferibly BKR7E.) Just got back from driving down the street and I popped a couple missfire codes to find some severely burnt up plugs!

      I just changed mine to BKR7EIX. Have you tried the Autoparts? I remember Autozone had plugs for the 1.8t for like $2 each. Gap them correct it and they will last a few thousand miles.

      I figured it was too late to call around. Hopefully I find a set in the morning. I looked at my maint logs and I accidently skipped them 3k miles ago These ones are almost 9k old. I'll try and dig around and find some.

      Do all gas stations on the island contain an ethanol mix? I know in Washington a majority of them do but a few do carry it without.

      Looking to drop the car a bit lower this weekend before the cruise. I have only one dilema... My garage has quite a steep littlt entrance. I already take it at a pretty steep angle to make it in and I sometimes scrape. I know if I drop it I will probably scrape everytime. Any suggestions on how to fix the issue? I'm sure there are others that have this issue.

      It's called raising it up.

      Driveway and garage are two totally different things. I can only take it so far at an angle before I am in the wall.
      This board resolution you speak of Chris, how would it work? You have seen my garage. My car has been low in every house I ever lived in. This is the shortest and tallest entrance I've ever had.

      That is an option. I was thinking something a bit softer though. Maybe a couple of those 1/2" industrial rubber mats. I'll probably start with the wood first.

      I am getting ready to move out of my apartment in Japan, and I decide to archive my pics to my external hard drive. Came across some old school stuff.
      My red GTI back in the 16v days, along with an 83 Wolfsburg Scirocco project we did with our friend.

      I love the way this car turned out.
      Start:

      Finish:



      My red next to a BAD ASS GTI.



      Who can forget this cabbie?


      Some old redub action:

      Some old Thomas Corrado action:

      Ahh... I'll be back in a few days to start the addiction ALL OVER again.
      OSD #26 - "Because he's thirsty... Dummy."

    23. 09-25-2009 03:51 AM #123
      Found a few more:





      WTF? After we sold it, we got it back. With a few custom additions.




      More Scirocconess:

      Ronnie's old mark II:
      Motor coming out.

      Motor in.

      Finished (Ronnie's pics).
