      How do you clean the foam coming out of your a/c vents?


      Also, I'm not sure which would be better, but I'm thinking the K&N would be the better buy. Does anyone have either?

      There are small pieces of black foam that are breaking up from inside my AC vents somewhere and come flying out at me when I turn the AC on. I've been running the AC for a while to get it to spit them all out, and I'm getting less foam now. AC is still cool. Maybe it's a Florida thing..... you know how we Flo-ridas roll

      mine does the same. The black foam is deteriorating and it's a PITA.

      See? I knew I wasn't the only one. Also, the little privacy lid thing for the trunk is broken. My dumb mom tried to put something in the trunk that was too big for it, closed it, and din't know she broke it until AFTER and pondered, "how did that happen?".

      Moms and sportscars don't mix.

      Anyway, anyone know where you can get a replacement lid cover thing? The plastic on it is broken so it can't be reused.

      Bad news. They are close to $400 new. But sometimes you can find a used one for a lot less.

      I've searched, but I'm not too good at that. What is the smallest size wheel the 225s can go and clear the stock brakes?

      Way back in 1999-2000, the early TT brochure has 7x16 with 205-55/16s as original fitment. The VW beetle, had 16in, 5 x 100s, so they should fit.

      Not TT related, but can someone explain the difference between BBS style 5's and BBS Super RS's?

      They look almost the same to me, except for the center caps.

      The Style 5's are 18" also.

      Style 5's come in 17's as well. 18's are very hard to come by.

      Offsets are a big thing too. Style 5's have (obviously) low bmw offsets are are hard to make fit properly.

      Thanks.

      I found some 18's local for 800. Didn't know if they were worth looking into.

      the easiest way to recreate that is to actually recreate the image from a real life image. When I was contracted to make this shirt that's what I did.

      If all you're doing is making a vector image doing what Ben said is the easiest way. Also black may not have been the best choice because all the detail lines may make it look awkward.

      I think the lower grill openings are way out of proportion. Maybe just the white on black, but they look huge.

      Can I safely put a series 40 tire on a stock 17 inch wheel? What size would I use?

      AND

      What's the best (read inexpensive) to purchase a used ashtray. Don't smoke but I don't like the gapping space there.

      Thanks in advance!

      I'm asking here because I didn't get a response in the thread I created, but does anybody know if the door latch from the B5 Passat / 986 Boxster works in the TT? It's the same part # / design as far as I can tell, but it's half the price.
      I like things with two wheels and things with four wheels.

      I use this adaptor as it lets me use ipod, android, sd card, stick, or anything with a 3.5 plug-hole for output.

      Planning to seafoam the car.
      Where do i put the fluid in? and how much of it?
      1/3 of the bottle in each of the following:
      Gas Tank
      Crankcase
      Brake Booster

      Now the question,
      If i choose to put some into my fuel tank, do i still have to change my oil?
      I gotta change oil in few hundred miles anyways, but i just want to know for future referance
      I would reccomend changing the oil after you run it clean (20ish Miles) or you may start to develop lifter tap or something of the same nature. A good synthetic after you seafoam and you'll notice a little gain in efficiency.

      Here is a video of my car when I first purchased it. I don't believe the previous owner (female) knew to run 93 oct in the vehicle.
