      The silicone may survive the combustion process, but it is seriously diluted and not in the same form as it was. If this is a real concern, wouldn't there be warnings on the product?

      So if the seam is submerged when you start the car, how do the non-existent fumes get to the inside of the exhaust pipe?

      How would those fumes get to the inside of the exhaust pipe in sufficient quantity to damage the sensor? Most of that stuff you're supposed to let cure for hours before you even put oil back in the...

      Maybe the ones he has in his parts room are supplied by Interstate. VW puts something else in at the factory.

      Look up the part numbers on a site that sells them. If they are the same, you're good.

      First up should be the brakes. Stock golf brakes are dismal. The good news is that an upgrade can be cheap. The TSI and the GTI (non-PP) have the same calipers all around, but the GTI stops much...

      When you replace the battery, you'll get all sorts of lights on the dash when you first start the car. They go away after you drive less than 100'. Sounds like Advanced Auto got scared.

      17s are much better. You don't feel every pebble and painted line on the road anymore. The sidewalls are still stiff enough to corner well. 16" tires will roll in the corners, 17s will not. IMHO,...

      My Golf has non-PP GTI brakes on it. I was running stock 16" wheels on it and now have 17" VW Goals on it. No problem.

      Woo Hoo!

      I got my check today. I didn't think I had a chance because I didn't have any maintenance history (I had just boughten the car off a used car lot when the timing chain broke).

      Normal. Better than, actually. You can install a bigger battery, if you want. Look at the mounting holes right behind the airbox.

      Has the car been good to you? Any problems? Does it use oil?

      Do TSIs in AU and CA have DSG transmissions? In the US, it's a standard auto (no mechatronics unit).

      Doesn't mean it's any better than other brands. The additive package itself may be inferior. I don't believe CostCo has the chemical engineers on staff that any of the name brand companies do. You...

      Was your tank really empty? You might haves stirred up some mud in the bottom. Similarly, if the tank at Costco was just filed, you might have pumped some crap into your car. Never buy gas at a...
