    Currently parked because its leaking coolant on the exhaust, but I will be using it for mostly in town runs once I get new heater core hoses on

    Best color out there! Except I am also a fan of the yellow, since my miata is also sunburst yellow.

    I think I did the key lime green, orange, purple. There was definitely a 4th color, but I cant recall what it was right now.

    Hard to see but the wheels were purple that year, in that photo. Haven't done colored wheels since 2014 :(

    My commute isn't very long and the wife says we aren't allowed to take it on any long trips due to how rough it rides, how its broken down in the past, it's mostly rust, etc. Women and their grudges, amirite? Plus I just bought this for our roadtripping. 2003 jetta tdi, manual.

    Slight coolant leak on back of block

    It looks like everything is accessible from the engine bay, just things are tight! Nothing like my miata where the hoses are right out in the open. Bye bye knuckle skin it looks like!

    Slight coolant leak on back of block

    I have a leak on the back of my block from what looks to be the heater core hoses. Coolant is dripping down and sizzling on exhaust after I turn the car off. If this is the heater core hoses (I never replaced them), how much fun of a job is it to do? I haven't gotten under the car yet to see if...

    Radiator fan not on automatically

    Nah the car was quite hot enough to trigger the fan. I plug my bluedriver obd2 in and monitor the temps and they will get into the 200s, fan still not kicking on. This whole issue started when I parked my car after driving and heard some bubbling. Popped the hood and the reservior overflow was...

    Radiator fan not on automatically

    Recently noticed my cooling fan does not come on once the car gets up the running temperatures. If I hit the air conditioner button, both fans will come right on, but push the button again and they both go back off. Is this simple as a faulty temperature sender switch? The temperature gauge...
