      Had my Drive Gear springs installed today, but it was dark when I picked it up so I really haven't had a good look at it. Patiently waiting til morning

      i feel like the engine doesnt have to rev as high to get the power. and the tires lose traction when i hit the gas @ 40mph!!!! its that much more power and i love it! its really a no brainer if youre looking to do it without cat. http://www.etektuning.com/products/A...p-to-2010.html


      o yea supacat i forgot to take more pics i'll do that tomorrow

      replaced 2 out of the 3 exhaust hangers. Need to order the rear "Y-shaped" one...

      before, the exhaust used to rattle on the suspension.

      Now it rattles much less... replacing the final one will tighten up the exhaust even more

      I washed mine...not sure why. The car is not on most favorite list. Oh well. It is cleaned and will look good when she goes to the shop once again for tranny shift issues.

      Sounds like Valve Body issues...let me know if you need some help on finding places to rebuild the unit better than factory (not performance either, just an OEM rebuild with better quality solenoids).

      I appreciate the offer. I'm under CPO warranty still. VW can do what they need to do with it. Call me when it's ready!

      Took car to dealer because it had "steering column lock fault" message. They replaced the immobilizer module under warranty. However, when driving home I noticed I couldn't see my LED's in the reflection of the car in front of me. They must have done some vag-com work as my led's are now not on as my drl's. They only come on when I turn on my headlights. Called the dealer and they are going to try to fix them later in the week. Now I just have to find the thread w/ the coding again.

      Battery decided it was time for a permanent nap today with around 65K on the clock.

      Replaced it.

      Im doing my Hids tomorrow and installing my optima redtop after changing the battery terminal.

      yesterday I installed Leds in the lower front directionals. The leds came off a beetle and they were the factory sidemarkers. I popped the clear covers off and dremeled out a small section to slide them into the directionals. wired them in as drls and they look good.

      Got our first "real" snowfall for this season last night. 4 inches of new lovely snow and I just couldn´t resist to go get a newspaper at the grocery store. Funny thing, the trip was about 10 miles longer than it usually is.







      Crappy pics but for you guys who haven´t tried drivin´ your VW on snow with good tires, especially if you have a 4motion, you are really missing out on something.
