      Aren't these called flat 5 in the vw world? Heavier and lacking some of the concave that makes the fat 5 so appealing!

      Pretty sure they came on an Audi Sedan in 16" as the flat 5's and they were heavier.

      I've never seen those before. They look like reps. But either way they aren't fat fives nor flat fives

      Hey Played, do you like the INA coilpack adaptors/2.0T coilpacks? I have a 2000 TT so I have the bolt down coilpacks, so I'm thinking I may go with Integrated Engineerings Kit 80 dollars JUST for the adapters though is a little tough to swallow but if the coils are cheaper in the long run and at least somewhat better I guess I could do it.

      I believe you asked this in my thread but I'll answer it here too. The fitment is very good and I'm happy with the finish. As far as how they run I cannot say because the motor isnt back together yet

      Definitely a bad CV cover, replace it ASAFP because otherwise no grease = dead universal joint, a MUCH bigger/more expensive pain

      This is probably bad forum advice because discretion is involved, but as long as the outer and inner boot aren't separated, then not much dirt/sand/debris will get in. That's the most important part in determining if CV's boots and/or joints are replace ASAFP or when you get around to it.

      sounds like the outer boot. I would replace it when you get a chance. I had one go and the joint was clicking really bad. I was lucky to get the boot replaced with no damage..

      When I shift into 5th gear, and now sometimes 4th, after a cold start, there is a grinding noise even though I have the clutch pushed all the way in. Should I replace my slave master or is it something else?

      I changed my fluid recently because my mechanic asked me if I had at 70k. I wasn't the owner at 70k so I said no. It was changed, but the grinding sound stil happens.
