I hate it too. I guess they just want to make it look "futuristic"? The only major exterior structural change you should see with the conversion to electric is the removal of the front grille. With...

Doing it once won't cause any permanent damage. But don't get in the habit of doing it multiple times. The surrounding gas actually acts as a coolant for the fuel pump, so running it dry constantly...

Great summary. I had an '08 Rabbit which I bought brand new and drove for 105k miles before trading. From personal experience I can also say that the 2.5L engine was damn near flawless. The car was...

Yeah it's definitely not going to be cheap. Just from personal experience I'd let it slide.

Can't we all just get along?

Not one car shits on another car completely. Both are great cars. Each one just caters to a different audience. Where cars like the WRX and MS3 lack in refinement they...

My 2014 Wolfsburg Edition came with a rev BB pump. Failed at around 14,000 miles. Got a rev BG pump under warranty repair and it's been fine since (almost at 30,000 miles now).
