    Indoor Karting 10/15

    Anyone wanna race go-karts on 10/15? In Wrentham, MA. Don't think we've decided on a time yet. After some cutthroat racing, they have a Thirsty Beaver pub right there, or I'm sure we can find a local brewery. Come hang out with me, @dtfd...

    WTB: Cheap OEM VW Wheels w/ Tires around RI/MA/CT

    Looking for a set of OEM VW wheels with tires. At some point, whether it be soon or later, the R will be traded in. And when that happens, I don't want to do it with RSE10's and good DWS06's on it. So figure can look now, and store them if necessary. Since this solely for trade in purposes...

    FS: A Vintage Curated Collection Of 28 Awsome POGS, Circa 1994

    This physically pains me to do, but I think it's time. With shifting priorities in life, I can no longer give this awsome collection of POGS the love and attention it deserves. I would much rather it find a new home, one that will love and cherish it for another 30 years. This collection was...

    Is there an OE spec, non-OEM spring available?

    Since the R is approaching 70k miles, sometime later this year I'll probably replace the suspension on it. And when doing so, I'm really not interesting in changing the ride height or quality. Bilstein has the B4 Damptronic shocks, which are an OE spec replacement (without paying OEM prices)...

    Oil Pressure Regulator Valve P/N
