CRP AUTOCRP deals in a ton of OE automotive parts. They also make the factory DSG fluid for VW.

    Hi Charles,

    Just a quick note to say “Thank You” for producing and maintaining your website. I work in an office, but have always been a frustrated mechanic. I’ve always maintained my cars, my wife’s cars and my two daughter’s cars. Since the age of 16 – and now at the age of 62, I’ve done my share of brake jobs, oil changes, tune ups and minor repairs. I’m by no means a professional mechanic like you. However, I simply want to state that with the help and guidance of your website, I can continue to make straightforward to minor repairs, and also save a bundle of money.

    You have a special ability of explaining complex mechanisms in a clear and concise way. Thank you once again for your help.

    Kind Regards,

    Owen Matthews
    Andover, MA
