      This is the newest and latest version of this thread

      Rules:

      No flaming of others- this is a thread to show and tell not for criticism

      No criticism? I wonder how long that's going to last....

      As for me, I drove it today CEL free. Felt good. Don't know what changed, but I'm not complaining!

      hmmm...i actually think i'd be worried if my CEL light wasnt on when i started my car.

      but on a similar note, i fixed my cut ABS sensor wire on saturday, so i have antilock brakes again just in time for winter (as long as my fix holds...)

      Yea I actually am kinda puzzled. It was on about 2 weeks ago and now the last few times I've driven it it's been off. So I'm not sure what to think

      Thread title is "the official what did you do to you mkiv today thread." Clearly, this has nothing to do with what you did to your mk4 today. I vote ban



      As for me, I drove it, parked it, and cursed at it for being a piece of ****.
