Re: Every other VW site is talking about it, so here we go

A) Don't have a care in the world about "Dieselgate", even if I owned a TDI. I'm quite disappointed in VW for sure, but this whole thing being blown into a bigger scandal than the GM ignition switch debacle and airbags that blow out projectiles is... :rolleyes: . B) A school with some auto engineeri...

Re: Look who turned 25!

Geeeeez, 25, here is no more emissions, and you can run a antique plate and or a regular one and I am counting the years until then. Yeah, well, AZ is Commiefornia's neighbor...

Re: Look who turned 25!

Congrats! :mrgreen:

Mine qualifies for a "historic" plate, but they're too damn ugly and it doesn't exempt the car from registration or emissions. :roll:

Or just use a bumper/trunk mount bike rack like many others do and be done with it.

Re: Radiator Circuits explained?

To clarify what Cabriolets came with what: 1980-1987 = One-speed fan, regardless of A/C (parts stores that list 2-speed fan components being required are wrong !) 1988-1993 = Two-speed fan, regardless of A/C, plus after-run system The after run system is not used on CIS equipped cars Incorrect.

Re: LED Tail Lights

So the argument that LED's over time are so much cheaper because they last longer does not really work this time. LED's in and of themselves are, in the long run, cheaper (I'm so done with buying incandescent low voltage bulbs; damn things don't last long at all!). It's when you combine said LEDs i...

Re: Dead 93

Worst car I ever owned. So, a 20-year-old car leaves you stranded because a (probable) 20-year-old component failed, it's taken you over a month to ask for DIY help, and it's now the worst car you've ever owned? :rolleyes: :screwy: At any rate, when these cars quit suddenly, I always tell folks to ...
