Re: 22.5K service (TexasV70R)

so how does a guy tell the dealer not to do anything with the ECU (I just had the IPD stage 2 done)without tipping them off that it is there. If they clear my new code I will have to pay 90.00 shipping 2 times to have IPD reset the program. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 22.5K service (MagoonR)

Are you guys talking about this style pop-up wind deflector? Can anyone tell me why my '04 came with one? Was my car a test mule, or am I missing something here? Is there a newer revised version? ????<p><IMG SRC="http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e86/ss60/finito.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>- Tryg

Re: 22.5K service (JRL)

My camber fluctuated by 0.1 after they raised the rear using jacks. I think it depends on how it settles. Don't remember what your previous camber number.<br>Hmm... I'll have to check the sensors next time the car is in the shop,.

Re: 22.5K service (mike_c70)

Previous was something like -1.1 and -1.4 or so. Somehow they got both sides in order

If it's not part of a TNN, they won't check it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Saw your wife driving the R today; getting off 202 North. The wagon was looking good as always! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
