  1. I pretty much left the stability control on all winter, every time I got into a slide the car would straighten itself out quickly which was alright i guess (not really that fun though)... my main issue was ground clearance really



     
  2. Honda Civic Si
     
  3. Same with my TDI.

    And supposedly, even with the '10s and '11s, even though you could press the button and the dash would say the ESP was off and blah blah blah, it would always still be on, just at a very minimum level.
     
  4. crz would be pretty interesting
    voted gti though
    love em
     
  5. GTI best ever
     
  6. or how about a scirocco?
     
  7. We don't get the Scirocco in the states unfortunately.
     
  8. I would have been all over the Scirocco if they were sold here <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

  13. Impreza
     
  14. I will warn you again: If you do your own work on your car and plan on driving it for a long time, stay the hell away from the VW. Most horrific cars to work on in the world. Even with a lift and shit, theyre just awful.
     
  15. Even with professional servicing, the reliability is likely not gonna be great on a VW. It's a shame, because I really want a GTI. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  16. With professional servicing it'll be even worse. VWs dealer network is simply the worst. I bought my TDI when the 3 years/36,000 miles of free maintence was being offered, which for me would be an oil change and tire rotation every 10k and a fuel filter change at 20k. I stopped in my local dealership for the free 6,000 "checkup" and that experience alone had me online looking for quality oil and filters to do my own maintence. So far between the 10k oil change and the 20k oil and fuel filter change, the parts alone have cost me $200, but there's no way I'd let a VW dealer touch a car I planned on owning for an extended perios of time.
     
  17. Ya I'll do the oil service myself anyways. Has anyone seen the new K&N oil filters? They have a nut welded to the end so you don't need any cumbersome oil filter removal tool to take off the oil filter, you just need a half inch socket or wrench. Pretty neat. Changing the oil on my truck is awful because it's so tight.
     
  18. My oil filter sits in a canister right on top of my engine, so easy to change. Combined with an oil extractor, you never need to get under the car.
     
  19. my VR was over the subframe, so it was impossible to change the oil without making a disastrous mess.
     
  20. lolololol gassers suxxxxxx
     
  21. I usually fire a screwdriver through the middle and then undo it.
     
  22. btw why do they recommend 10k oil change? I usually replace around 5k, or 7k tops.

    Edit: Any they probably use coffee filters for oil filters, and maple syrup for oil. No wonder VW has bad reliability.
     
  23. I dunno what the gassers recommend, but the diesels are 10k, and alot of people run 20, 25k between oil changes no problem.
     
  24. you don't have to worry about the same levels of acidity/shit in the oil with diesels like you do with gas combustion. as for reliability, I don't see that as an issue.. my dad has had his '08 GTI since he bought it through auction with 16,000km on it and now 2 years later he has just under 90,000km and we haven't done a thing except an air filter and dumping synthetic and filters into it every 5-7000km. 30mpg is easy as hell to get when driving nicely (6spd manual) even the brakes still have life in them at 90k. and yes, he and I do drive it hard once in a while, me more often. the only complaint I have is the continental pro contacts that came on the car, they're stupid expensive for how fast they wear. oh and a right inner brake bulb went out, that's it.
     
  25. 90,000km is not a lot for a modern car, even one with questionable reliability.
