      Billet Audi and VW Washer Fluid Cap

      Ditch the ugly blue washer fluid cap (or half tennis ball if you’re really ghetto) with one of these slick billet aluminum 6061-T651 versions.

      Ours are CNC machined for a perfect fit and can be ordered in a variety of colors and finishes – including anodized or highly polished. Simply remove the old cap and press fit this one right into the washer tank.

      This product replaces OEM P/N 1K0-955-455 (1K0955455), 1H0-955-455 (1H0955455), and fits nearly every VW and Audi in existence. So, there’s no excuse to rock the half tennis ball anymore!

      Bump for G60 billet tensioners !!

      GruvenParts.com has designed CNC billet aluminum Crank, Alternator, and Tensioner pulleys for the Corrado G60 8V Engines. Each pulley is precision machined to a run out of less than .001 on one of our HAAS CNC mill-lathes. The products are completed entirely on the CNC mill, and therefore have a nearly chrome surface finish. Our G60 Pulley Kit reduces rotating mass by over 5 lbs. Added bonus - ditching those cheap plastic factory tensioner wheels!

      Buy them as a set and save !!

      These pulleys replace the following OEM part numbers :

      Crank : 037-105-255 (037105255)
      Tens : 074-145-278E (074145278E)
      Alt : 037-903-119 (037903119)

      Corrado Billet Hood Cable Clip

      The Corrado hood release cable clip (mounted to the hood pull bracket near the drivers left knee) is notorious for breaking at the worst possible time -- when you need to open the hood.

      Rather than using a cheap stamped version which will break again in short order, our version is precision CNC'd from a solid chunk of aerospace grade billet aluminum and installs in minutes. No need for the time consuming task of removing the ENTIRE cable, this one slips right onto the hood pull bracket and locks in with all supplied fasteners included. VW doesnt even sell the hood clip anymore, but even if you found 1 it would be a waste of time to remove the entire hood cable to put it on, as it would break again in short order. Skip the cobbled together mystery versions floating around as well, ours is designed right! We LOVE Corrado so we're happy to reincarnate it from CNC'd billet.

      Fits ALL Corrado and replaces Clip P/N 535-823-567 (535823567) that installs on cable P/N 536-823-531 (536823531)

      various bracketry (i.e. alternator relocation kit? G60 S/C brackets?)
      8V valve covers?

      all of those could be offered in anodized finishes?

      just some ideas.
      looks like the new pulleys are pretty nice btw

      These are all good ideas.

      Who wants any of them? If we get some interest, we will build and let you test free samples.

      Thanks for response.

      I don't know what else could be replaced for a better shifter feel on the G60 but I've read replacing/re-newing the bushings below help quite a bit. Unfortunately they are only available in oe nylon replacements. I don't know if billet alloy replacements would be better...Note this are for the shifter tower inside the vehicle, as early 02A trans (ie. g60) did not have the bracket bushings as opposed to the later VR6 ones.


      oe part #s for G60 shifter tower bushings:
      - 357 711 124 A (no. 7 on below drawing)
      - 357 711 166 A (no. 4 on below drawing)
      - 357 711 590 B (no. 39 on below drawing)
      - 357 711 590 C (no. 40 on below drawing)
      - 357 711 217 (no. 24 on below drawing)


      ETKA drawings:










      And here's a pic I took from my oe nylon ones (though only 4 of the 5 total bushings):

      Billet Dipstick Funnel

      Finally, a replacement for the orange plastic dipstick funnel !

      Our funnel is made from 6061-T6 billet aluminum and neatly replaces the cheap brittle orange dipstick funnel we have all come to hate. Choose from as machined finish or highly polished finish.

      This part replaces OEM part number 053-103-663 (053103663) on the following vehicles:

      Audi - 80, B5 A4 1.8T – all 4 cylinder
      VW – MK2 Golf, Jetta, Scirocco, Corrado G60 (NOT VR6), MK3 ABA’s, Eurovan T4, B3, B4, B5 Passat 1.8T and 2.0

      i would be interested.
      i'd probably be interested in ones for MK3's too if they're practical. i see those needing a lot of lube
