      My teacher had over 1M accident free miles. I think it was one week for straight truck training and 2 week for TT. I forgot the term, but there was something about always looking around and well...

      Control arms can last 100K or more if the car is stock. They don't hold up as well when the car is lowered, has larger wheels or is driven hard. Even the cheaper FCP lower arms lasted 35-40K on my...

      My Passat wagon: It's old and the interior cloth is falling apart. MPG: with the stock 2.8V6, Tip trans and 4Mo, it would only get 22mpg at 80mph. With the 1.8T and 6sp manual swap, it only gets...

      It all depends on the driver. My wife and oldest son both think the gas pedal is an on/off switch, never coasting. My wife is a nervous driver sometimes (she hates driving near trucks and on bigger...

      The batteries in my Passats and Golf die right around 4 years with the heat here. I don't know how long the Tiguan's battery will last as I have heard of quite a few dead already with people blaming...

      Did you buy a lottery ticket yet? Glad you are ok, shoulder injuries take a while to come back from. I had someone try to lift the front of their FWD car in my driveway and their parking brake was...

      I've had the EBC reds up front with the larger A8 rotors. No dust, no vibrations and they have lasted a long time.

      I kept an 87 Taurus wagon for 17 years, but the last 2 years the kids had it for high school. It was comfortable, but slow and only had about 134K when we donated it.

      My 69 Chevelle was. My wagon, not so much until I hit a corner (or a pothole, it rattles). My Tiguan in bright Orange looks the part, but it's all appliance to drive.

      Cut 200lbs off the B5 4Mo Passat wagon by swapping the 5sp Tip trans to a 6sp manual and the 2.8 V6 for a 1.8T. The trans was half the weight and the 4 cats on the V6 made up most of the difference...

      This is for the center console upgrade with cupholders. The A4 and Passat were based on the same platform and your center console looks just like mine did before I swapped. I also swapped the E-brake...

      Hopefully you are replacing that housing with the T-stat. You can see the degraded edge, it will leak. The 2.8 had the same problem when they switched over to plastic.

      I think it's more about the $.50 per gallon cost extra and that you can have APR cover the powertrain warranty while running 87. I do wish they would keep a standard of at least 87 and 91, the lower...

      I never put a sticker on my car, but I removed plenty from my 1st car. A 69 Chevelle SS that I could not see out of due to the stickers. I have put stickers on my wife's car.

      It almost looks like a giant rear wing. At least there was plenty of room to work with the engine out.
