    ORO-TEK TPMS sensors are a drop-in replacement for OEM TPMS sensors. Underinflated tires waste fuel and adversely affect handling, and under inflation can cause ply separation and casing breakdown, which can lead to complete tire failure, accidents and injuries. That's why TPMS sensors need to...

  19. Jetta / Bora MK6 / 2011 and up
    So the Jetta S trim has a 2 Liter 115HP engine. How can it have such low HP/liter? That is only 57.5HP/liter and that is with a compression ratio of 10.3:1 according to VW's website. Moderate compression ratio but pathetic HP/liter? I don't understand how the engine could have such little power...
