  1. Golf SportWagen VII
    2019 Alltrack M/T with 26,400 miles at the dealer. Failed Bevel Box. Tech said he's never seen a failed bevel box. Does VWvortex keep a running count of failed equipment? Found a couple threads but how often do these fail? How special am I? Here's what happened: Returning from a day skiing...
  2. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I'm looking for a full engine wiring harness for my golf to replace the spliced harness hooked up to an ancient 034 motorsports ECU to put in a Link, but I've been having major trouble even sourcing the harness. I've scoured the google and have given up the idea of a brand new harness, so my...
  3. Jetta SportWagen Cars
    Here is a daily project I drive, retrofit galore, engine swap, transmission swap, awd conversion. Interior has been upgraded with various cars (CC, GTI, Passat, GLI, EOS). I have too many cars just like everyone else. Some of the retrofits I have are visible but some can't be seen. Retrofits...

    Just wondering if anyone has any experienced, informed commentary on the benefit of AWD in bad weather, when it comes to EVs specifically? I.e. do they handle appreciably better in snow/ice vs. FWD or RWD EVs? I can imagine that, hypothetically, it wouldn't make as much of a difference vs. a...
  5. Golf II/Jetta II Parts
    I know its a long shot, but i am looking for a syncro rear beam assembly either from a mk2 or mk3. Preferably with the disc wishbones. If you happen to have just the beam, axles, disc wishbones i might be interested as well. I'm located in CA. I added a picture of what it looks like for anyone...
  6. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    So as the title states my 2000 Jetta 1.8t awd has a stage 2 awp ecu installed. But the problem is the car still has the narrowband O2 sensor and harness which is causing it to run pretty wonky. My question is how can I install a wideband O2 harness to alleviate this issue. Is there a write up...

  13. Volkswagen News Blog
    Everyone’s making AWD systems these days and manufacturers often quote amazing stats when talking about how quickly their system reacts to a lack of grip. Faster than the blink of an eye, they say. Quicker than a hummingbird fart, they yell. Speedier than the grand jury investigation of a police...

    With almost 2,000 shares on Facebook, it looks like you liked (pun intended) this week's Find Of The Day . That 1990 GTI had a torquey VR6 engine, a manual transmission, and all-wheel-drive tucked inside a beautifully restored body. We're betting that car won't be available for long. So if...

    What happens when you take a 1990 Corrado G60 sports coupe, add an upgraded supercharger, a ton of engine internals, a Synchro all-wheel-drive system, and a (gulp) $4500 raised suspension? You get a huge project. An unfinished project. You get the hope of someday driving a rip-roaring race car...

    From the factory, your VW’s rear end is fitted with bushings meant to provide enough stability for the suspension and driveline components to do their jobs, but not so well that comfort is compromised. For a discerning enthusiast interested in improving hard launch times or reducing deflection...

    The all-new fourth generation Audi A8 is set to debut any moment now. For weeks we've been teased by images showing bits and pieces of the new model, a partially camouflaged model at a movie premiere with a certain web-slinger propped up on it's hood, and, most curiously, photos of blindfolded...
