      What does it mean when someone says 'bump' on a thread? They usually do it when someone is selling something but they do it at other times too which is keeping me from figuring it out from the context.

      no Hazardous Chemicals.
      typically on a highway that goes through a city they will have this, the HC is in green IIRC

      What does "JDM" stand for? i have been reading forums and such for years and I always wondered but I was too lazy to investigate. I have deduced that it must be "Japanese" something or another.

      337 was the internal project code VW used for the MKI. the 2002/03 model was the anniversary edition of the GTI in NA, thus the 337 designation.

      Why do we have steering wheels on the left hand side/Europe, etc. has it on the right......(who decided to differ and for what reason)........

      England has them on the right. Europe has them on the left.
      The English Army had their horsement pass people on the left side of the road so that thier sword-hand was free (just incase). Napolean (so the story goes) didn't like to do anything the way that the British did, so he changed it.
      The US probably would have been right-hand drive, but the Model T wouldn't work with rhd, so Henry Ford made it left hand drive. Since the 'T' was the standard for the U.S., everyone else adopted lhd!

      and to add to this: Places throughout the world with British influence at one point or another will most likely have right hand drive cars, while the other places will have LHD. Not sure how Japan got their RHD standards though...

      No, you end-up with a station wagon that's hard to park, gets terrible mileage and is almost impossible to see out of!

      There is none. Audi was bought by VW to get the Mk 1 golf (and to a lesser extent, the K70). Sort of a canary swallowing a cat scenario. Until the Audi A3 came along, there was no crossover. I'm pretty sure about this, though there could be a model or two in Europe that I'm not familiar with. Anyone? Anyone??

      Wow. May be there's a geography lesson in order. Europe is several times bigger than GB. GB doesn't = europe same as USA doesn't = world. They don't even want to be considered as part of europe, but want to have EU capital.
