new member here to say hi =D

Post by jeffong_hk » Thu Jul 23, 2009 10:22 pm

hello all. i'm a new driver and just got my first car about a week ago, it's vw golf gti MK4. so far no problem with stick shift overall, other than stalling once in a while on a hill or something, esp when it is those uphill inch by inch situation. reading this site ahead of time has been really helpful, not only the faqs, but some other issues that other members had experienced. =D

i'm hoping if anyone could give me some info on pedal covers for my vw, i have no hope of touching the gas pedal while on the brakes, unless its full braking. i'd like to know about the clip on ones, since i have no power tools and wouldnt want to drill holes into the pedals either. but any info will be helpful =)
