The MKVI GTI has a massive advantage going for it in that class, the length of the stock rear bumpstops. They're 133 mms long and at rest I believe there's less than half an inch of bump before they...

I've had the 034 mounts for a while now. They're good. I'm sure the CTS mounts are good too. I'm very thankful that we have aftermarket options that use rubber.

Review: Koni Sports on stock springs

I've been running a set of Koni Sports for a few months now and I think I've logged enough miles to offer an experienced opinion.

Current setup:
Stock springs

Yeah I couldn't get that bolt to spec. I just pulled as hard as I could and left it at that. So far so good.

I love a great naturally aspirated engine but it seems like the most common problems this car has have nothing to do with the turbo. What issues are you referring to?

If it's important to you I believe the AWE downpipe has the highest quality catalytic converter you'll find among the common options. Shouldn't be a power bottleneck and you'll have a cleaner car.
