    I am going to build one, but use PVC pipe instead of metal for the initial implementation. My version will eliminate the spare wheen and use the space for storage instead.

    Sometimes the push rod cannot be adjusted enough. That was the case with my 7 that has a hydraulic clutch. Instead of a proper lock nut it had a regular, thicker nut. The 1-2 mm extra that I got when...

    My wife has had one ride in my 1987 S3. The seller and I each had to grab an arm to help her out, so that was her first and only ride in it. She did enjoy it and approved of the purchase!

    If you take the cover off, which I have also considered, can you see the fill hole inside from the opening?
