  3. ELECTRONICS
    I've got a MK4 GTI VR6 and I've recently changed out the head unit for an older model Pioneer. When I was unhooking the wiring harness from the previous head unit I noticed a black box with wires connecting to it. The black box was not connected to the unit nor does it look like it connects to...

    So I've had my 2002 1.8T GTI for a little over a year now and I've had to replace the axles 4 times. My car is lowered with 17 pounds of boost.

  11. Photoshopped GTIs and Photoshop Requests
    So my son has an unhealthy obsession with the Disney/ Pixar Cars movies. I have been wanting to get bags and the VW Heritage wheels anyway, so I figured why not take it a step further and paint it to look like the "Cruisin' Lightning McQueen. Here it is, my car the Heritage wheels and...
