      I've wrenched on German cars for 40+ years. Blind loyalty? NO! I know what works and what does not.

      Do you have proof that it's an inferior product? NO. Would you care to share your opinion on why...

      A diesel and gas turbo are sized differently. If you did use a 1.9 diesel turbo on a gas, it would run out of breath at a very low RPM. I also believe you could over spin the turbo at higher loads....

      The rotating object is the rotor. Since it's the rotating object, that is the part that is bad. Rotors warp with age and cheap rotors warp faster. It's a rare occurrence, but pads can warp rotors...

      Anti roll bars and sway bars are the same thing. The only difference is the spelling.

      I have heard the Scirocco II is similar in weight as the Cabriolet so maybe it's something to look into.

      Meyle is the cause of most electrical issues. Their products are not really that good. URO is in the same boat.

      Have you done any real testing or just throw a bunch of time and parts at it. Typically following a good diagnostic path and real testing will point you to the problem real quick. Do you have a...

      This is the best advice here. Use and OEM filter too. I prefer MANN.

      What makes you think that adding a mixture of snake oil will make the engine lubricate better? Spend more time in the owners...

      I believe so. I have an account with TT so I made a call and they shipped the parts. I only purchased the intake valves and retainers since I could source everything else locally and much less. The...

      I have installed 7mm valves in most of the 8V heads that I do anymore. The stock intake valves are .5mm smaller therefore I do not use the stock ones. The last intake valves [41mm] I purchased was...

      The main difference of the filters is that they use a better filter media and seals for a longer service life. Newer cars have longer service intervals and therefore the filters had to be updated....

      A loose support bracket at the back of the pump certainly would put more strain on something not designed for that strain. I think you will find that the problem is resolved. You should at least...

      I can only assume that the previous mechanic removed the spring so more fuel will be delivered. Not understanding how CIS works is the biggest issue with that system. That and old gas.

      Glad to...

      Can you reuse a headgasket after it has been compressed/run? Sure. Should you? NO! Better to do it right than to do it later.

      Drill the head off the bolt. Use a larger bit than the bolt size. Once the head is off, the threaded portion will just unscrew by hand.

      The trick with removing allen bolts is not to strip them....

      Not being there, it sure seems like a lot of parts were replaced and you still have the same problem.

      My background is that I've been a mechanic since 1980. I started working with Mercedes Benz...
