I did a DSG flush on my wife’s GTI yesterday. My funnel was small and my hose was long, (that’s what she said?) so I grabbed a nearby ladder to mount the funnel.
I may have an addiction. Been quite a while since I’ve posted, but following a work computer upgrade, I can now use Kinja again! I replaced my E46 M3 with a 987 Cayman S a month or so ago and with the addition of my A4 Avant back in October, I now have all hatchbacks along with my wife’s GTI. Added bonus is all three…
A friend grabbed these pictures off his dashcam. Any idea what it is? Assuming some sort of kit car or replica of something.
I’ve been debating what tires to get for my 08 A4 Avant for months now and still can’t decide. I have winters on 16" wheels, so whatever tires I get for the 17" wheels don’t need to have any snow capability. I’ll be putting about 10k miles on the tires each year (5k on the winters) and it’ll be my regular commuting…
A misfire and strong smell of burning electronics led me to this.
And also interested in driving an A4 Avant for me? If I end up with it I’ll thank you with beer.
I was doing my usual manual wagon search and came across this. They know their audience, the seller comments are the best.
Cars.com has the listing updated with it priced at $40k. Approximately 15k more than similar automatics. There’s also another 6 speed but non sport and with awd that’ll be interesting to see how it’s priced.
I’m just coming back from a France/Italy vacation, with the trip starting out with Nice and Monaco. We dedicated our first Sunday to the Historic Grand Prix and exploring Monaco. They ran 10-18 lap races depending on the class, and had seven classes ranging from pre-war cars to the early 80's. More races, more…
Seeing the post by SharpSpeed led to me reminiscing about my days in Super Mileage at MSOE. Definitely the most fun and most rewarding thing I did in college, both to build the car and be lucky enough to be the driver.
I found this under the passenger seat of my 2001.5 Passat while lubing up the locking pin in the slide. It could be from the seat or it could be from somewhere else in the vehicle and at some point got tossed under there.
No, not classic questions about Audi, like why is my check engine light on, but questions about classic Audis.
With my 2002 M3 at 130k miles, and not knowing if the suspension had ever been refreshed, I decided it was time for an update. I wasn’t willing to spend the big money on coilovers and also wanted something that was similar to OE or a little better. After a little searching, I came across the Bilstein B12 Pro Kit on…
I would get this. It’s on my daily commute and for the past two years I’d turn my head and look at it as I drove by. Yesterday I drove by it and it had a for sale sign. I find the simplicity of the car and curves so appealing. (Hopefully link doesn’t get Kinja’d)
Saw this Friday driving home from work just outside Racine. I was getting closer and for the life of me could not figure out what it was. Finally I started thinking, “That can’t be an Alfa, can it?” He turned off and I spotted the badge, and sure enough. I’m pretty curious as to how it is here.
When great musicians pass away, I can’t help but think about how I wish I would have seen them in concert. With the passing of Chris Cornell, I’m very disappointed I never took an opportunity to see him in any of his acts the past few years.
The saga continues on the TDI and the replacement GTI. A quick recap, we bought a 2016 GTI to replace my wife’s Golf TDI. The TDI appointment is scheduled for two weeks from now.
My wife and I bought a 2016 GTI with the dirty diesel money for her. She said the only thing she doesn’t like is that it’s too easy to speed, which isn’t a terrible problem to have. I’m really liking the view in the garage now.
We’re moving forward with the 2016 GTI I posted about yesterday so I submitted the paperwork on our TDI to the VW claims site. In this process, I made two mistakes
We’ve taken our time with the TDI buyback waiting for a decent deal on a new (to us) car to come around. We’ve settled on wanting a Mk7 GTI and came across what’s basically my wife’s dream car. Heated cloth and night blue metallic exterior are the must haves.
