Chip Issue

Postby Spidee » Sun Dec 14, 2003 9:44 am

Hey Max, go here:
http://www.norcalvw.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=7458&perpage=25&pagenumber=3

Look for one of my posts at mid page. This pretty much summarizes what happened. Since then, the car is running Strong. Although, I'm traumatized about the chip faulting again. That's just me though.

Other than that, car feels good.:thumb:

Hope to see you again bro for the Skyline drive... :cool:

Yea i have those two holes under my front licence plate holder too. Why couldnt they have just used regular screws in the front bumper, o well. I like the new badging spidee


Thanks man!:thumb:

Although, as soon as either one of us figures out how to plug those holes, we better share the details.;)

Only some car dealerships do those holes for the license plate frame ... you can try begging for a trade at a dealership that doesn't do the holes .. besides that .. i wouldn't know hehe


i was lucky enough to have one without holes, but it doesn't matter now .. i have a votex bumper .. hehe :D

I'm might be avoiding this issue too. I'm trying to see if I can get all the funds together to get an OEM R32 body kit.:clap:

Just a heads up .... you better start saving now for that R32 body kit .. i heard that most OEM parts are going up in price

example:
Jetta OEM HIDs
Before: $800-1200 brand new

Now: $2000-$2400 brand new

why does the world suck!?!? :confused:

OEM Priceless

Postby Spidee » Sat Jan 24, 2004 5:42 pm

If you're right, then that is why a 20th Anniversary instrument cluster is being quoted to me at twice the price they really cost. It's hard to part with $3000 to make my Spidee almost complete to what I want it to look like.:(

I'm starting to wonder if I should really put that money into it after watching all those beautiful cars that are being auctioned out at Barret Jackson on Speed Channel.:confused:

AWW! "Why does the world suck!?!? :mad:

I say save the money from the body kit (keep it stock, just paint valences) and spend it on the supercharger kit you've been dreaming of. ;)

I believe there are 4 holes that mount to the bumper, but I'm not too sure. The top 2 can be covered up by getting a new rub-strip. The bottom 2 will probably take some bondo to fill in, sand and repaint... if you're willing to go that far just to risk getting pulled over.

Supercharger

Postby Spidee » Sat Jan 24, 2004 6:21 pm

Hey Max, your right!:D I've been talking about the supercharger. However I've recently decided to wait till I get past the basic warranty coverage before I get any crazier about modifying the engine some more.

Now that I'm attending more meets I want to give my car a more unique look.:D

You have me thinking again, though.;)

That's good idea too GTIFREAK.

Your right Terence but, I'm just going to hold out.:D I don't know when this year but I'm going to finish my exterior the right way. I want it to look just like this without the yellow wheels.

Look at what's new

Postby Spidee » Sat Jan 31, 2004 10:04 pm

Man, I couldn't sleep after getting back from the Stockton meet. So, I began installing the AEM Cold Air Intake. I started at 11:30pm and finished at 2:30am. I encountered a few problems due to the ABD Big Bore's dimensions. It caused the AEM to not reach certain suggested holes for attachment. Therefore, the different position of the intake also caused problems clearing the cone filter to fit under the car. A horn blocked the area. All I did was flip the horn up to clear it.

Other than that, I LIKE IT. You could actually hear a slight tone of the air being intaked even at idle. I can't really tell the difference now but, the dyno will tell us the truth in the future.:D
