    Vendor and Solicitation Threads


    Administrators are JJ-R32 and Gulfer

    Please contact the administrators for more details on becoming a golfmk6.com sponsor or vendor by using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any page or forum (http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/sendmessage.php )

    Golfmk6.com prohibits the advertising and solicitation of products and/or services from businesses and/or their agents without prior consent from one of the Administrators of this forum. Please PM an Administrator for clarification or permission BEFORE starting a thread or listing a business in your signature. Audits are randomly done and bans and citations will be given to violators of this rule. Each citation is reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the site administrators and moderators.

    Violating vendors of the rules below may receive a forum ban.

    1. Vendor advertisements Threads are to be posted in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Threads announcing promotions and discounts should be placed in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Cross-posting a thread announcing promotions and discounts across multiple forums is considered spamming and is prohibited.
    • New product announcement threads can go in the applicable forum, but sales of the product should go in the vendor forum.
    2. Vendors are allowed to organize Group Buys by initiating a thread in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Cross-posting a Group Buy thread across multiple forums is considered spamming and is prohibited.

    3. Signatures Advertisements are allowed but we ask to keep it of appropriate length. We also ask to add information on your signature line stating the company you work for, etc., so golfmk6 members know you are a vendor.

    4. Golfmk6.com members who choose to rate sellers in classified threads must post with a FIRST-HAND and FACTUAL account of a transaction and/or product. If for any unfortunate reason you must post a negative experience, please***GOLFMK6 MEMBERS PLEASE READ (Technical Forums)***


    The technical threads have become much more argumentative lately. Although this forum is relatively new, members have approached me regarding the direction some threads seem to head. As usual, posts will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

    When a thread involves a discussion regarding a particular product or company that you may not be in support of, you are expected to post responsibly/maturely if you choose to comment in such a thread. Failure to do so and you will be subject to infraction and/or ban.

    In regards to the ban: The initial ban might be for two weeks, followed by a chance to come back to the forums with a better attitude. If you choose not to change the intent of your post, then you will be permanently banned.
    Simple as that.

    Take care and enjoy the forum.

Where can I buy g12 coolant?

Are there any places besides the VW dealership that carry g12 coolant?
I've been looking at multiple autostores and most coolants dont even have a G rating.

Nor do they show the color of the liquid.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? Running low on coolant since my turbo swap.

Thanks!

G12 is the old stuff. G13 is the new stuff, and there's G12+ too. They're all compatible with each other.

Hit up a local dealership, they'll have it in stock. I paid $30 for a giant jug when my pump started failing again and before I could get insurance to replace it.

Trying to avoid dealership, closest one is like a 30 minute drive.

Any recommendations (part stores) on when I can pick g13 stuff up?

If you absolutely had to avoid the dealership, I'd probably just order it online and stop at walmart to get some distilled water. Add a little bit of distilled water if you need to until the coolant shows up.

G013A8J1G is the part number for oem g13.

Thanks for the Model #. I tried picking up from the amazon link smanierre posted but it did not want to send it to a residential area.

I've been running the Peak Long Life...it's compatible and available everywhere.
How long have you been running this? That is a hella of a lot easier to find.

so I bought some Zerex G40 the other day from NAPA Auto, and without noticing it's not the "ready to use" 50/50 mix, but I ended up with the concentrate (my bad). So it is safe to mix 50/50 with distilled water? The bottle says nothing at all about mixing it.

50/50 is perfectly fine, just make sure it's distilled water.

just after posting I found on CARID the mixing specs. and results for freezing, boiling temps. etc. You can mix up to 70% G40 with distilled water for the best results.

That's good performance for harsh winter conditions. If you live in milder climates, closer to 50/50 is best for all-round performance for the whole year. If you're tracking the car, you'll want more water than antifreeze, on the order of 60/40 or even 65/35.
