      Also swapping the battery for a Deka.

      Will a MKVI Golf/ GTI rear wiper delete fit the SportWagen?

      ^ Installed some Koni's today! The ride great! I set the shocks to medium, and only spun the rears done 4 threads from the top. Once I get new wheels I will dial in the ride height, where only a tiny bit of tire is tucking.





      ^ He should be a plumber.



      After all of that I washed it. GTI had two bags leaking from the lines, so he was re-cutting the lines.

      I think I am going to go with dark gray wheels since my calipers are gold.

      No, but sub 24 lbs for 18's is my criteria. Ton's of good wheels out there under 24 lbs.

      In case it wasn't brought up. Removal of badges is much easier on a hot day with thin fishing line or tough dental floss. If it's not a hot day, grab the girl's hair dryer. Literally a two minute job with the dryer, much less with the Sun.

      I did it when it was 90F out, with fishing line, Goo Gone, and a Hair Dryer.

      VWoA must be using a different adhesive these days. I've not personally seen any left over residue. Maybe they can use it on side moldings.
