  1. What's the consensus just reman calipers and be done with it? I don't need fancy brakes I just want good ones.
  2. These draw about 3 amps total by my math reckoning. So far the canbus is not barking at me on the 2013. I had a plan to put some plain LED bulbs in the tail lights without the canbus resistors to lower the overall draw, but have not needed that yet.
  3. thanks got it in the cart now Those factory lights on the MkIV are OK, placed OK.
  4. heading that way again, maybe tomorrow, maybe Thursday. Empty what ever is needed. I like driving the truck too and don't need much of an excuse. My sister is home from the hospital
  5. 1156 is the right bulb for your beetle?
  6. It was very easy to put a double DIN in with this: dash bezel 95$ My truck had the basic radio with sirius built in, no nav, no amp. The harness that is included above was all I needed. I soldered that one to the one that came with this radio: Kenwood DDX9905S with android auto and apple car play, ~$480 I have the backup camera installed and working automatically when I put it in reverse. It does android very well. Downside is you lose the top dash pocket. I made it so my phone slides into the lower one anda magnetic connector hooks it up.
  7. the factory tiny little keyhole on top of the tail light facing up 🤦‍♂️ Does nothing at all.
  8. the lights on the late beetles are absolutely worthless, no bulb would fix the placement on those things. This is in a shop with plenty of windows so I could not get it that dark.
  9. We did the 40,000 mile service on my wife's 2013 Beetle TDI with DSG. New oil, fuel, air, cabin air, and transmission filters. It was my first DSG transmission service. Tomorrow I will put it back on my friend's lift and install these backup lights. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N8QJ3UT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_image?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. Along the lines of what Gary said. If you don't have an equalizing hitch, get one. It will stay with the trailer, whatever rig you tow with. If that is the case you may be very happy with your truck.
  11. did they fit OK under the door skin?
  12. Thank you Shane! I ran over and we discussed speakers and the like. I am ordering a pair of 6x9s for the front door and not worrying about the rears.
  13. I am going with 4 full range in the factory locations, and no subs or tweets. My truck is a basic one with no wiring up there or amp and the receiver is just 4 out, IIRC. I don't care if they are coax or triax, just sound decent. I don't want to give up any underseat storage for a sub. I keep tow cables jumpers electric impacts tools etc. I got spoiled by the Beetles with the Monsoon system. It has 6 up front and a pair in back. Mary's '13 has the Fender system with a trunk sub, stock.
  14. these are the snowflake tires, with stud holes. I have some skinny studs for the truck, so I don't worry about that.
