    1 Free ExtremeContact DWS06 (225/40/18) in CO Springs (today only, pickup only)

    Blew out a tire in CO Springs on my road trip. The tire is more than passable, should last at least a season, more if you're stock and don't rip on them like me. Good for a spare in case of a blowout. The tire itself is showing signs of wear and age, especially on the inside sidewall, or at...

    Dramatic title lol I was swapping the brakes off my parts car today. For the most part, the parts car actually is in better condition than my driving car, even the brakes. But this one, this one fucking bolt, took over 200 pounds of force to break free. And then I got it loose: Nearly solid...

    What part am I missing?

    (images were wrong, posted the right ones below) Shop said I was missing a part, prob from when I swapped the motors. I believe it was secondary air related, but I could be thinking of one of my other problems seeing as it's far from the secondary air. Also is the little nozzle that is connected...

    Another P2015 thread 🙄 ECS manifold cap problems

    Okay, so I know the whole P2015 thing has probably been beaten to death. But my problem is slightly different. I didn't have a P2015 code. But, reading all these problems and seeing this ECS Intake Manifold fix that is supposed to prevent it from happening, I thought I should do that, as...

    Do I need adapters? - Sony XAV-AX100

    I did a brief search for this, and while I found a few posts talking about installing these head units, there's not much talking about what's needed, if anything. I'm going to be up against a deadline and won't have time to order adapters once I get the head unit in before my road trip. Are...

    Longitudinal transmissions that match our 2.0t?

    New guy here. Been lurking and finally made an account to contribute. I recently blew up my 2013 GTI motor. As of yesterday, though, I also acquired a 2011 salvage-titled GTI with only 55k on the clock for parts. That engine and some body panels are being transplanted into my old car, but I do...
