      thanks for the advice cheebs! I called my Charleston dealer today and they quoted me $290 for the Haldex service alone So now I'm looking to get that done elsewhere too but I may just call VWoA first and have them step in regarding the MU and just have it all done at once.

      Yup. Back to a garage, and it only took me 10 years to do it.

      FYI, my independent mechanic who specializes in German cars, he is doing my 40k Haldex service next week for $160. i'm supplying the oil & filter. seriously, more than $100 less than the dealer's quote.

      Today? I'm cleaning it after a 2 day drive to Albuquerque from Reno where I just bought her. Best road trip ever! If I have time maybe I'll run in and get her registered. But first thing is to give her a bath!

      Awesome, man. I know that's a big undertaking and you're probably really proud of the result. I would've done the same thing, and in this area, my next house will likely require it.

      Good show. If you plan on updating the inside, keep us posted with photos! I'm always looking for ideas for my own garage. Wondering how much I'd have to pay to get it insulated and walled.

      That's what I'm afraid of. Destroying my spine while attempting to give the car a thorough cleaning.

      08-20-2010 02:21 PM #96
      Yesterday:


      1. installed SS brake lines and blue motul. YES improved brake feel, no doubt about it.
      2. installed the Whiteline anti lift kit. YES massive reduction in bump steer and tracking.
      3. Haldex 40k service. YES now i can forget about it and stop being concerned.
      4. full service, oil, fuel & oil filter, cabin filter. ok.
      5. rotated the tires. NO had a wicked vibration at 75mph.


      Today:


      1. unrotated the tires. YES we're all good now.
