Another question. Where and how much can i find these bolts (the ones that hold the coil packs in place)? BTW the coil pack is still missing a screw, it's a little loose, is it safe to drive like this?

Thanks,
Chris

Some of my plugs showed oil on them. Looked it up on MKIV but am still confused. What could this mean?

Oil on plugs is not really a good thing. Does your exhaust blow white smoke from time to time? (burning oil)

It means that either your valve stem seals are bad, your turbo seals are going, or possibly bad rings. (probably your valve stem seals this is a common problem) Not the end of the world, but not the best thing.

It does blow white smoke, but only when the engine is cold and in cold weather. And never when my engine is warmed up. If in fact it is my valve stems, how much would it be to repair? Not TOO bad right :(? Any one else?
