  2. Thoughts on the 12-14 GLI's?

    The Garage
    Its come to that time unfortunately where my IS 300 will need to be replaced. :( I have been browsing around and have been gaining alot of interest in the GLI. I am skeptical with VW reliability as I never have owned a German-made car and have always been all about Jap cars. I just can't get my...
  3. RIP Paul Walker?

    The Parking Lot
    What a sad day. Personally celebrity deaths do not affect me but this is different. Fast and Furious helped me develop a love for cars and truth be told without this series, I would probably not be a car enthusiast and let alone own an IS 300 and made the friendships I have. As a teenage...

  6. Starting Issues

    General Discussion
    I forgot to mention this but I did clean the terminals a month back in response to it not starting at that time, is it concerning that there is a quick build-up of gunk on the terminals? My battery tends to get gunk very fast

  8. weak heat

    General Discussion
    Hey guys for the past winter I have been having issues with weak to no heat. I have been playing with the dials lately and it seems that the air is blowing colder when set on defrost but blows just a bit warmer when I set to blow at me. This was all done with the temperature set at the max high...
  9. serp belt snapped?!?!? tha f#!$

    General Discussion
    Thanks for the tips I had it towed to a shop and they ended up replacing the tensioner pulley which caused the belt to snap. Was a costly repair but could've been worse, luckily I dodged a bullet and the headgasket didn't go.

    hey all, I've noticed this weird sound coming from my gearbox when I'm in M mode and on 2nd gear. I would say the sound is like nails on the chalkboard sound and occurs when I'm at 4k rpms or higher.

The original gauge fuse that was put in the tail light socket was fine and the tail lights were operating. Then I put in the original tail light fuse in the gauge fuse socket and that is when the...
