      This is not a big deal. The nozzle may leak around the jount, or the hose conncect to it.
      Pull the nozzle out, and some hose, and locate exactly where it leaks. Then replace.

      IIRC, a replacement nozzle comes with some tubing and wires/plug (for heater).
      That may fix that issue.

      My rear nozzle is not shooting fluid, and I know it's not clogged, so I am going to try and figure out why it does that.

      My pass door would not lock/unlock, pulled off the panel and the thing got a life, so I am hoping it was a loose wire behind the panel. Becuase it is working great now.

      I have the same issue but I think what happened with mine is the line to the rear washer fluid was so clogged that it caused the connection from the pump to the rear line to break so now I have to get a whole new pump before I can wash my back window

      Keep get a whining noise on decel/accel in first and second gear... I can hear it more when I go through a parking lot and stay in first gear . Starting to concern me more and more. Just changed my transmission fluid due to the fact that it was extremely hard to change gears when the car was cold. Seems to have fixed the issue for now

      Why would you have to get a new pump for a broken hose?

      The hose isn't what broke, its the piece on the pump that connects to the hose that broke

      I think I replaced the bushings and hardware in all 3 of my VF mounts in April. While I was checking things over after a track day at Sebring I noticed that the bushings all need to be replaced again. This will be the third time I have needed to change these in about 18 months. Maybe the material doesn't like the Florida heat and the horsepower (550). This was 2 track days at Sebring, daily driving and maybe 3 times at the drag strip with a total of 24 passes.

      I guess I need to look at the other options now as it is getting old. I think I need some hard plastic/polymer and a lathe and just make my own inserts/bushings. Hockey pucks?

      Replaced MAF ... MAF code still keeps popping up every couple days. Reman MAF possibly bad out of the box? I'm trying to get this thing smogged people. Anyone else ever heard of this?

      Other than that, and the bolster and MID, she's doing pretty good. Even with the intermittent MAF code, she runs flawlessly.

      Whats the code # it's throwing? I had a 1.8t with cai and I replaced the MAF 3 times. Only helped the light stay off for a few days. Took the cai and dirty filter off replaced with clean new filter and the code stopped for good. I want to say the code was p1128?

      -Problem (Solution)

      - Part throttle hesitation; slow puttering and changing gears is problematic. Plugs and packs already changed, fuel filter changed, MAF cleaned. Gas mileage is not what it used to be. (Thinking of just getting flashed)
      - Antenna has rotted to smeg. (Need to finally piece together my adapter wire for the sharkfin and be done with it. Or steal one off an S2000)
      - I have a Haldex fluid kit that I've been sitting on for 2 years now... (Stop being a lazy jerkoff)
      - I have 6 Aristos, all with paint chips and some curbed rash (by no fault of my own). All in some sort of "bent" shape, some just less bent than others. (Need metal repair, roundness back to true, powdercoat)
      - Suspension feels like I'm riding/cornering on a bag of warm butter. (Complete suspension upgrade, started with Unibrace but buying rest of stuff before install)
      - Brakes need done soon (RacingBrake discs, stainless steel lines, Tyrol Sport bushings [until I can afford Cayenne caliper upgrade])
      - Missing a wheel cap (Buy some, more $)
      - Broken car remote (Buy one and have it cut, again more $)

      * Started a project for a "high beam" rear fog light for 3rd brake light in hatch, never finished it. (Again, prioritizing)

      Trying to figure out whether I should dump my savings on all of this all at once, or dump my savings all toward my loan to (almost) pay it off. Or maybe just buy a ~$1500 sh*tbox to commute in and park the R, but that will present its own problems and I'll still have to fix the R. Being an adult is lame.

      Yupp. I completely agree

      I would fix the car as long as you have enough money after to comfortably keep making monthly payments.

      Paying off the car would still leave you without a proper functioning car and would leave you without money to fix said car.

      Buy a beater would come with its own problems to drive right, likely more serious problems as well. Also it would deminish the money you have to continue paying the car payments and making repairs to the .:R. Also you will now need to spend more money on insurance (if your loan is like mine your .:R will either need comprehensive or storage insurance at all times.) So you wont be saving much money there.

      Just my opinion.

      That might not be true. I was looking at adding a 1991 Wrangler to my insurance with me as the only driver, and the payments would have gone from $160/month to $80/month to have both cars. They said it was because I would be driving the R32 a lot less with the old, cheap Wrangler.

      I have Amica. They're pretty good and when you call them the people on the phone know what they're doing.

      * Started a project for a "high beam" rear fog light for 3rd brake light in hatch, never finished it. (Again, prioritizing)

      Trying to figure out whether I should dump my savings on all of this all at once, or dump my savings all toward my loan to (almost) pay it off. Or maybe just buy a ~$1500 sh*tbox to commute in and park the R, but that will present its own problems and I'll still have to fix the R. Being an adult is lame.
      quite worrying about air suspension and fix your ish

      - Part throttle hesitation; slow puttering and changing gears is problematic. Plugs and packs already changed, fuel filter changed, MAF cleaned. Gas mileage is not what it used to be. (Thinking of just getting flashed)

      What would a flash do to a neglected car?
      When is the last time you changed the oil? or topped off the gear box?
      or even changed the brake fluid?


      seriously- do the Haldex asap!!!! it is really easy to d-i-y
      you can borrow my Haldex wrench if you promise to return it.
      you are asking for problems that will make a one hour job turn into several thousand dollars.
      Finish it!

      start work on the Aristo's pick one and finish it!
      move on to the next.
      you gotta start somewhere
      ain't going to do it itself.
      Best of luck man..

      The "winter beater" theory never works. Winter beater ends up needing tires, muffler or something. My R32 was actually purchased to be a winter/commuter beater but I ended up liking it more than I thought I would.

      Oh I got the wrench, event the fancy Schwaben one, just need to do it. And my car is nowhere near neglected. Basically it comes down to time and money right now. Two jobs and classes are a big time sink. More than anything I put that list in writing to give myself perspective of the "to do" list.

      The .:R is doiwn again. Front diff gone, took out trans case. Plates off, will replace broken parts, then it will be sold. I have loved this car, but I am finished. Bought it new in '04, drove it 156,000 miles. I AM DONE.
