1&2) Yes, Post a pic and depending on car and how complete it is you can determine the year/model with a fair amount of accuracy.

3&4) Locally? Volkspares has some parts but for the good stuff you will have to buy online (vwheritage, SSP, etc)

5) Im in ct can't help you there.

If it's too low, you're too fat, too old, too stupid, just right.
