When I threw out the toe on my MK3 after bending the subframe, I just used a hoist and a measuring tape to get the distance at the front of the wheels the same as the distance at the back, so it was all square.

Tracked straight, but if it was off by a smidge I didn't care as the tires were crap anyway.
On a nicer set of tires though....

Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

Ava's first drive in the golf and first time with a booster seat! We'll keep her car seat in the Passat since she just passed the weight minimum.

I just got on it through third gear and she says "wow, we're going a lot faster than those other cars! Are we in a rush?"

She kept saying "go fast! Go fast!" Meanwhile we're at a red light. She asked if all golfs were this bumpy.

I'd be willing to give you back a piece of fabric. Should be a Kartell staple in all our cars.

Heat gunned the flares, bumpers, and trim tonight... Looks like new! I'm interested to see how long it lasts.

If it doesn't last long, I have some shoe dye that works like a charm and lasts for several years at least.
