Last year, we sent VW Brand Ambassador Jamie Orr on a trip all across the country in a pre-production MK5 Sportwagen we affectionately called the Rallywagen where it ended in the Arctic Circle. This year we picked up a VW MK7 GTI and decided to build it here at ECS to debut at SEMA and then head South to drive all the way to the tip of South America on some of the most demanding roads. Rallywagen 2.0 was fully constructed in-house by our team of engineers. See the build list here!

If you live in an apartment or you can't get your car up on ramps or stands but want to change your oil, then this is exactly what you need. This tool enables you to drain from the dipstick tube and refill like normal, without getting under the car or fighting with drain plugs. Not only is it convenient it's also efficient: most cars leave oil in the pan when being drained from the plug—sometimes up to a half quart. The extractor, however, can reach this remaining broken down fluid to make room for even more uncontaminated lubricant. Extract the extra work from the job.

Flushing brake fluid is a commonly overlooked maintenance service for most car owners. Fluid should be flushed every 1-2 years as a good service plan, however checking with the manufacturer's suggestions is best. A simple way to tell if the fluid is in need of a change is by looking at the color, new fluid will have a slight yellow hue while amber is the sign of a needed flush. Because brake fluid is hygroscopic, its designed to hold moisture away from the metal internals to prevent corrosion. Like a sponge the fluid can only hold so much moisture before becoming ineffective.
