My car takes a little under 4 quarts.  Here's a page on clubb5 with more info: http://www.clubb5.com/information/oilchange.shtml.  I can usually find a K&N filter (the HP2005 for the 1.8T) at Checker or Pep Boys.  They always have the better quality kind by Fram too, for example.


Thanks for that CB5 link, Alan - very helpful. My 99 takes 3.7 qts, so I guess no need to split an extra quart with ya Win. :) Thanks anyway!

That's without the filter.  Check your user manual and it will show just over 4 quarts (4.2 to be exact) for the oil with filter.

Wasn't there a big post on this over at B5 disc? Speaking of which, I'm running 0w30 in my car with a high grade fram filter...'is killer. Hey, incidentally, where's the GTG and how early can I show up? I've got stuff to do around noon...anybody got a dremel? Jay? I think I'm going to install some fogs....

It is supposed to start at 9:00am at Winston's, check the calendar on the home page.  I have a Dremel that I can bring.  Used it last night and it was a snap.
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

I was going to try and make it, but after a snide remark I don't want to deal with any BS so no, I am not going.

It is childish, but I don't have the energy to deal with any BS.

The last time there was supposed to be a GTG, at the Outlet Mall, it was a flop.  :roll: Winston, Pat and myself were the only ones there. :?

Today I bought 4 quick connects for the rear fog mod.  If you don't have this, and you have a B5 (or B5.5) Passat, you really need to get one.

I bought them out at McDonald VW, and 4 will only do two cars (correct me if I'm wrong Jay), so let me know who needs them.

JR, I'll be up and ready at 9.  I don't know what I'm doing Friday yet, but I'm leaving myself some time to recover.

I've got tons of crap to do on Saturday.

Last night I smacked a curb that I didn't see hard enough to cause some funny noise when I turn at speed. So the first thing I'd like to do is get it up and check all my steering/suspension garbage. (I created more dash rattle too :evil: )

Then I want to tint and mod the rear lights, then put in some fogs and dremel out a switch hole in the little dash things around the hazard light area.

Then, I should be done.

I'll be there right around 9. (I may stop for donuts too...Lamar's. Although it's a little out of the way.) You like yes?

I may have some left over Fog/Brake Light Mod materials I can bring.  Also, I am waiting to hear about when I can pick the ol Scout up, and since that is about a 5 hour round trip it may affect my Garage Dayness.

As for the previously mentioned CR GTG Sat evening, I may still try and make it even though I'm a little ticked at the remarks made towards me.  I still like getting together with a big group.  I know the last one I went to was at Barnes and Noble and there were a shitload of cars.

Jay, I wouldn't take that comment too personally; it didn't seem too bad or directed to you specifically.  Depending on when we finish, it may be better to head down there than to Lance's since his ends at 3 or so.  We'll play it by ear.

Randy, what time does the party end?  You can always meet us in CR for the GTG there.  Check with me to see if we do go there first (call me on my cell 720-318-5177).  Here's the post over at VWVortex:

I picked up a bag load of quick disconnects...I'm definately not going to need them all, so if anyone doesn't have any, I've got a few...

I won't be going to the GTG as I've got to work on Sat. Night. I will be on the chat if anyone's bored.

I'd also be down with a caliper painting day. At $9 a can, I can definately dig. I want silver though...

Anyway, I have to be back at the house by 11:30, so I hope I can get everything done by then  8O

Umm...sorry, it's two cards per donut...

Winston of course gets them for free since he's hostings...and whoever let's me use the Garage first to check my sterring and suspension (rotate tires?) will of course get a donut as well.  :twisted:

I don't think I can get all my crap done in two hours... :cry:

Well my job this Saturday has just blown up in my face. Freaking Banyon Productions!!!  :evil:  :x

Anyhow, that means I'm free. I'll see if I can swing it for an hour or two. Maybe I'll see you there! :D

Question about the VW "connect wires".  I found a pic of the part number and noticed that they are the same wire/plug that I picked up when I rewired my MAF plug.  When you say "2 wires", are you talking about two wires with the plug at the end of one side or two wires with the plug on both sides?  From the look from the diagram that Winston has, it looks like the wires need the connector only on one side.  If so, then I may have the wires already.

Good question, but I may not have a good answer for you.  If you are talking about the 000-979-126 part, then the parts guy told me that they come as one wire with a quick connect on each end, but that the VW parts guys cut them to sell individually and the Audi Parts guys leave them as is.

If that's not the part you are talking about, let me know.

You know, it just came to me.  The MAF kit had only three wires with the connectors on both ends.  The VW guy said to cut them in half to get the number of wires with the connectors on one side.  I think I may have one wire that I did not use.

Winston - When I put the rear fog on my variant they sold me one wire (I believe it's the part# you listed) and I just cut it in half to make connections for both ends.  I think it cost 2.12 at the dealer. I might be off by a few pennies but not many. :wink:

Rob, that's exactly right.  For some reason, mine were cut in half.  

Dave, did you get the rear fog installed or just the wires in?

I have not done anything in relation to the fog light.  I have only done the brake light mod.  I wanted to wait until Saturday for the install.

However, I do have the wiring and connectors for one more brake light mod if anyone wants it.  I will bring it with me.

Well I just got word that the Scout needs one more week.  So one more week it is.  This will no longer interfere with my weekend plans, that is about the only good thing.
