Re: NEW VEHICLE PRICES IN TRINIDAD & TOBAGO

^^DOes the new Tiguan suffer from the DSG transmission woes of the older models? I know of two people (PCL and PCM Tiguans) who both had transmission woes...up until the trans was replaced. Of course, that was done under warranty, but after lots of headache and trying to "convince" dealers...

^^If you're concerned about preserving your OEM floormats, why not do what I do - get a set of "cheaper" mats (which match your interior of course), and place them over the existing mats if possible.

^^Well you don't HAVE to buy the wax. To me, it sounds like you're hooked on the brand name, instead of what the product should actually be doing FOR you. You can use AG Extra Gloss Protection instead. It's a synthetic sealant, which functions as an LSP just like HDwax. In my experience, it works ju...

^^I've used Turtle Wax ICE products. Rubbish as far as I'm concerned. Their "polish" is not a polish at all, but more like a sealant. And that "sealant" lasts only a couple of washes before beading goes to naught. The only good thing about it is that it's easy on-easy off, and th...

McLaren made a gr8 showing against the LP700. Funny how "american muscle" dropped to lower places - traction is a helluva thing I suppose. 911S did better than the ZL1, and is packs less power, and is still RWD. Still love meh Skyline The new GT-R is not called a Skyline anymore. "Sky...
