Yeah, I'm a little pissed. What's your point? In retrospect, I should "thank" VW for forcing me to become reasonably mechanical when I bought my first VW in 1969. After a few months of ownership, I could adjust valve lifters, pull a cylinder head, troubleshoot crappy Bosch electrics, clean a carb, repair drum brakes, and adjust the strange and lame VW suspension components. I didn't do nearly as much driving as I did wrenching on my first few VWs.
