comment GOLF 5 GTD gas error led
@albanx that is quite an ambiguous answer. Allan Osborne offered two options. Which is it?

comment Inside radiator coming off?
@James I'm guessing it was like that prior to the flush as well. Doubtful that this much corrosion/deposits (not sure from the picture whether these spots are missing finish material with corrosion on the substrate resulting, or deposited material from somewhere else) would show up in a day.

comment Wires Coming Out Of Center Console
I think it's an indicator light for the lock on the secret compartment. Or the "armed" light for the passenger ejector seat.

@Larry apparently these bikes are known for flooding and hard-starting in extreme cold, so the simplest explanation may hold.

comment Change in exhaust note after extreme backfires--what did I break?
I left out the part about how I started with a near-dead battery, which may have precipitated/exacerbated the flooding. As I said, not a fun morning.

@Larry It ran great a week prior. Do you mean as a result of the backfiring?
