    Hello, I am new to this forum and would like to know if anyone has encountered a problem similar to mine? The yellow "Fault in Catalytic Converter" light came on a couple of months ago and I took it to the dealer who ran a diagnostic. The result was not as he or I expected and we are both...

    Morning all, I've owned my 2005 Jetta for about 18 months and is currently on 47k. It had always very slightly idled lumpy every few seconds or so, but a bit of Googling told me this was pretty normal for this engine. For the last month or so, the idle when cold has gotten worse and is now...

    I have had my car for a year now. The previous owner pointed out it had arch burn on the rear from running too wide a wheel (not any more) and that the arch has been treated. Well it's now starting rust. Speaking to someone they said use wet and dry, then some rust treatment and finally just...

    So I had my car remapped last year. The map it's self is good although it's very mild. I was wondering if anyone on the forum would be able to tweak it if I sent them the file and give me a little extra power but it still be a good safe map. I know there are a few tuners on here so thought it...

    I've just had my alignment done and I've always had -2.3 degrees of camber on the rear but the garage told me they've gave me a bit of positive toe to even it out because of how much camber I have. I now have my camber set of -2.3 and the toe set at 0.15 on each side. Will this be ok? The...
