  1. Looks like my IKEA furniture :D
  2. You can get any quality wheels. OEM wheels are perfectly good (image from facebook group):
  3. There are not many B-category parts available for the new shape yet. I would contact Paul Leepu Hayes in facebook who does a lot of body mods for Connects, he can probably lead you to mechanical parts as well.,
  4. Not many around here either. Škoda Roomster and Praktik have pretty much grabbed the whole segment for themselves.
  5. Eeeeerrrm, what's with metric in Texas, huh?
  6. Locking nuts are a must.
  7. It's discussed here before. Search.
  8. Over here you need two for a commercial van. Don't know the weight but it's about the size of a 2 litre coke bottle.
  9. I know how you feel: great.
  10. True, I'm 6'4" and quite far below the headliner.
  11. The small W5W type bulb is an European parking marker (permanently on together with other lights), just like the 5 watt amber wire in your turn signal which blinks at 21W. They didn't want to redesign the cluster for US version, I guess.
  12. Aerobar is of an old design, wingbar is the newest. Also, square bars hum at speed.
  13. You would also need cowboy boots for the issue to come in effect. Actually the roof height is an issue for cargo models, The old one was exactly the right height for loading stuff in it, walking inside the boot etc. I need to squat in my new one.
  14. Every time I come to the site for the past few days it has logged me out. Happens on all devices.
  15. Changed pollen filter? Floor dry? Outside air selector working?
  16. No idea about the sync issue (mine's the base model radio with USB and Bluetooth). You mean your low beam stays on at full power on DRL? Weird, mine's running high beams at half the power. You'll get used to the wires in the windshield. I've had this feature since my '96 Escort, then 2006 TC and now 2012 and 2016 ones.
  17. I was just logged in as Beta Don and tried to post a reply "I am not Beta Don" but it did not appear as a post.
  18. Getting better, I was now logged in as Don Ridley :O
  19. Thanks. Will be in a week I hope. it's been dancing around freezing temps (with occasional snow) for a month now. EDIT: it snowed in the morning and it's now changed into a full on rainstorm. Just got back from tieing suff down. EDIT2: aaaand it's snowing again. EDIT3: aaaand the studded tire use permission has been extended by one week (until 7th of may, normally due April 30th).
  20. Nice and classic looking, a bit like blender blades. I've just installed my new ones yesterday.
  21. Agree completely. A booster pack is a must for a camper. Every time someone needs a jump start at the camp site, I've been the receiving end myself.
  22. Lately the desktop format site has been pretty mych unusable on ipad. Is there a link or a setting to default to a mobile layout?
