    I have a questionnaire (english and portuguese) and this is part of a research project at the University of Aveiro, Portugal pertaining the “Antecedents and consequents of satisfation in virtual brand communities”. Our purpose is to study the following three brands: BMW, Audi and Volkswagen.

    All members of the Volkswagen community can answer.. Just 3minutes!

    Best regards,

    not a prob.

    As you already know we are meeting friday as you've seen on fD! You dont need your dub if its not up to snuff...borrow a car lol.

    I have no problem trying to plan some kind a route. I like some roads just because they have some s-curves and they're all w/in a few mins of each other towards ravenna. I'm sure my friend w/ the mk3 would help out too he knows the roads better than i do lol.

    Hah thanks man, so you sorta first used low grit dry SP then worked up, then went to wet? Towards the end of the summer I used like 2500 grit wet w/ dish soap then tried using 3M Rubbing Compound w/ a cloth and literally nothing happened. If anything things were made worse hah

    nice... a 16g might be a little small considering the work you are doing to the motor (its only good for 300-340hp)... I'd go for a Garett gt35r and a Tial 38mm external wastegate if you have the money because you can run higher boost and it flows a ton more cfm.

    If you are looking for a dd though, 16g is the way to go @ about 20psi. Make sure you get a FMIC and hard pipes! It makes a big difference!

    hmmm... the dsm harnesses are fucked from the factory, much like our vdubs... I replaced mine last year after it almost caught fire hahaha... the only solution for those shit harnesses is aftermarket rteplacement. I recommend Painless harnesses as I have not had any problems with mine, and it was relatively easy to install with great intructions. As far as the starter goes, when was it last replaced? and is it an automatic or manual tranny? Sometimes repair shops put in the wrong starter, because they are sooo similar, but if its the wrong one, they go bad really fast. When I bought my talon, it had an automatic starter in it, and it was a manual... it went bad in 2 months.
