      Can we please get some other interested parties to email or post up here? We need some demand for this, I cant just make a few otherwise cost will be too high. Please email directly if you want the billet dipstick for 24V VR6 - make sure and include your OEM dipstick p/n and year/make/model.

      We are making the MK4 12V and 24V billet dipsticks and they will be gorgeous. Stay tuned, I will have the pictures hopefully soon. Im sorry this has drawn out for a while but you can expect them to look similar to the other billet dipsticks we are selling

      Paul, i am less than 1 month from first start-up, and i am finishing up my last fabrication on my build.
      When can we expect these dipsticks to be available to the 24valve community?

      Thanks!

      The carbon keychains should be back in stock within 6 weeks. The carbon fiber vendor has given us the run around but we should be offering those in the classic black/grey weave along with a few other "less subtle" carbon colors. Stay tuned on that one, Im anxious as well.

      We do have the machined aluminum VR6 keychains in stock. For a classic look, those are tough to beat!

      Yes, have been going back and forth with shop on the dipsticks. They have all OEM tubes and dipsticks and have put together design. I am hoping for production parts very soon, but with everything it seems to take longer for development parts than production parts. I will get an update ...

      Yes we are doing all of it. There would be no point in just making 1 part correct, and leave the others as is. The weakest link would then fail.

      We also now have the MKIV Vr6 12V and 24V as well as R32/TT oil dipsticks in stock. I will have pictures coming soon. Nice to ditch the orange plastic

      MKIV VR6 Billet Dipsticks

      GruvenParts.com has released these new Billet Dipsticks for all MKIV VR6 motors including both the 12 valve and 24 valve engines in 2.8L and 3.2L variety.

      These billet dipsticks have a CNC’d handle made from aerospace grade 6061-T651 aluminum specially machined with a chemically resistant O-ring for a perfect seal. The wire is bundled stainless permanently attached to the CNC’d handle, and also with a specially machined oil level indicator tab at the wire base.

      Now is the time to get rid of that f-ugly plastic orange OEM dipstick which is prone to breaking and causing embarrassment in your otherwise gorgeous engine bay!

      This part replaces the OEM dipstick on the following vehicles :

      Volkswagen MKIV Golf, Jetta, Touareg, and R32 with the VR6 engine codes AFP, BDF, BJS, BAA, and BMX

      Oooh. Cost for shipping to Canada is more than the product. $82 shipped for a dipstick. Ouch.

      Its shipped USPS global priority with insurance. We are also "kind" with customs.

      If you want it shipped some other way, send us a label and you can pay whatever shipping you want. FYI, UPS and FedEx all charge extra courier fees to Canada, and they have lost a bunch of shipments. We know use USPS to Canada because of this.

      Need metal parts to replace thermostat housing and cover. more than just the crack pipe. have leaks. gonna get mishimoto radiator and your crack pipe. would be nice to replace some other things in the cooling system with parts that are not plastic. cant find silicone hoses either.

      Thanks and I also replied to your email as well. We are working on lots more for these cars, I know there is a ton of plastic that needs to go. Hopefully someone can point you in right direction regarding radiator, the aftermarket versions seem to fit poorly.

      Just placed an order for some goodies earlier this week, updating my intake rod bushings and drive actuator, new power steering pulley and tensioner pulley for my now defunct p/s pump, and a vee chain just for good measure.

      Will be placing an order for the thermostat housing and dipstick once available, and maybe some more goodies.

      I've reccomended your drive linkages for the VW/Audi V8 engines to a bunch of our customers and they have all loved the great price compared to OEM, and quality/fit/finish.

      Thanks man!

      I am expecting the billet keychains to come back in stock today or Monday and your order will ship out then. I am sorry for delay on that, for some reason everyone decided to order billet vr6 keychains all at once. I cant fault for that, they are pretty sweet. Anyways, CNC is cutting them now shouldnt be much longer.

      Awesome to hear! I was going to inquire about shipping, then just figured you guys took off the week for the holiday.


      Another idea for you, the center console latches on mkiv's are notorious for snapping because of being plastic. I know I would love a billet peice to throw in there. Not sure if it's possible since installation is literally pushing it into place an bending the oem plastic

      We have looked into those center console latches.

      Last I heard, ECS or someone else was selling entire center console replacements for cheap. Is that no longer the case ?

      These are in stock, ready to ship asap!

      Please click on the picture to order.



      TT/R32 Rear Adjustable Control Arms

      Click on the picture to visit our product page for up to date pricing info.

      NOW CHOOSE POLY-BUSHINGS OR SPHERICAL ROD ENDS !!

      Got a lowered TT or R32 ? Then you already know how the camber and toe become completely out of sorts, causing poor handling and expensive tire wear the more its lowered.

      The GruvenParts adjustable control arms allow for complete rear wheel alignment and feature the following :

      Choose from a zero deflection high radial load PTFE lined heim joint with protective dust boots preinstalled over specially machined bushings. The fit of the boot over the heim and bushings is nearly water tight!

      OR

      A poly bushing end with a heat treated 4340 forged chromoly housing, grease fitting, zinc plated steel sleeves, and race grade greaseable black polyurethane bushings

      You decide which set up you want ! The zero deflection spherical heims are suited for serious track abuse while the poly bushing ends are better suited for daily drivers.

      All control arms feature the following :

      Super strong, heat treated 4340 aircraft grade chromoly rod and ¼” thick U-Joints with machined, internally lubricated (molybdenum disulfide) threads. No weak aluminum is used for these parts (aluminum threads wont hold up).

      Distinct proper wrench adjustment flats machined into the bars which allow for 2” of length adjustment while on the car. There is no knurled hand adjustment nonsense here, ours are simple to adjust.

      Thick, durable powder coat finish (and zinc plating on the poly bushing ends) in your choice of high gloss black or Bilstein jazz blue. Please don’t adjust these with weight on the rear axle, and don’t use channel locks that could mar even a hard coat chrome plate.

      Made right here in Atlanta, Georgia by our FAA approved commercial aviation machine shop working on state of the art CNC mills and lathes. You wont find many shops working at our level, and you wont find higher quality anywhere !

      We know the economy is tough right now, so we are offering these at prices well under our competition. Buy 2 sets and save !!!

      This product fits Audi TT (2001-2006), Audi A3/S3, VW R32 (2004), VW Golf 4motion and 4motion Variant, VW Bora 4motion and 4motion Variant and replaces P/N 1J0-505-323L (1J0505323L) and 1J0-505-323N (1J0505323N).

      Want further discounts and more great products from GruvenParts.com? Read on!


      TT/R32 Rear Adjustable Sway Bar End Linkages

      Got a lowered TT, R32, or A3 ? Then you need to be able to adjust your rear stabilizer bar end links to ensure the linkages ride perpendicular to the swaybar and correct the less than ideal handling typical of lowered set ups. The factory set up does not provide any adjustability in the swaybar end links but GruvenParts.com has you covered!

      Our adjustable end links are made from aerospace grade 6061-T651 aluminum hex and feature 2 full inches of adjustment ON THE CAR. This makes for very quick and easy length adjustment on both the top and bottom of the linkage to completely fine tune just about any suspension set up. Our linkages utilize high quality greaseable heim joints for many years of smooth and quiet operation. While we recommend using our fully adjustable rear control arms, you can install these end links without them. The main body is show quality powder coated jazz blue or gloss black to match our control arms, and like all of our parts they are made right here in Atlanta, Georgia by our FAA approved commercial jet aviation machine shop on state of the art HAAS mills and lathes. You wont find higher quality anywhere!

      This product fits Audi TT (2001-2006), Audi A3/S3, VW R32 (2004), VW Golf 4motion and 4motion Variant, VW Bora 4motion and 4motion Variant and replaces OEM linkage P/N 1J0-505-466B (1J0505466B).

      Please note : This product is sold in sets of 2 (1 for each side) and includes all required spacers and the upper bolt/lock nut. Re-use existing lower bolt
