Re: VW & BMX What Gives?

Anyone who thinks VW maintenance is expensive must take it to the dealer...  probably the one brand with the biggest price difference between dealer shop rates and the VW specialist in the low-rent part of town. 

I've got almost 60K on my 03 Eurovan with the VR6 engine... gas, oil, brakes & tires.  That's it.  Before that, a Jetta went 140K before I sold it and the only weird problem was a headlight that wouldn't stay aimed.  My wife totaled the Jetta before that one - and walked away without a scratch.  And before that, we drove a diesel rabbit 260K before throwing rod through the oil pan after driving it through a flood.  tongue

Re: VW & BMX What Gives?

Body work, paint, 1835 w/ dual 40's, dropped spindles, straight axle, window tint, 1000 watts of sound, etc. All done with my own 2 hands. That is what a flat four fetish is all about. Same with my bikes, they reflect my mechanical skills and sinister style. I have put more than a 1/4 million miles on this bus since I bought it in the mid '90's. Never seen a tow truck or auto shop. I don't get the water cooled fans though, I'd rather have a '69 Camero, or a suicide continental.

I sand blasted it down to the metal inside, outside and underneath, rust free!

I see half the people on here are into VW am i missing something what is the craze over a german car ???

I could see if it was Camaro craze or Mustang .... BUT a Damn VW ???????

Camaro or Mustang.

Now that is funny. The nice thing about Dubs is that you never have to worry about the cheese factor like you do with muscle cars.

I would think more people would be into Motorcycles then VW ....

I know my passion is bikes "2 wheels" , weather a engine or pedal i live for the ride .....

Again, ditto on the cheese factor.

Re: VW & BMX What Gives?

First off, leave the water pumpers out of the subject.  Lol, I do own one but I am a hardcore old school air cooled fan and that is what this topic was originally about.  I am a mechanic and have worked on these things for over 14 years and if you don't know what the hype is, you have never ridden in one with REAL hp.  Check out this vid, 330hp bug, no NOS and YES it is an aircooled vw motor, and yes it gets driven on the street!  The kid driving is not the guy who owns it, the big guy backing him up is the owner and he has run 10.40's in that car.
