Oh awesome! Did you have to replace the wiper stalk? What about the clock spring for a MF Clockspring?

Looking for some insight on my Baseline to MFSW swap thread.

The stock engine/trans/and dogbone mounts are designed for comfort and have built in air pockets so when you hit bumps they absorb all of the impact and you don't feel anything when you're in the car. The downside to this for me and a lot of others is the engine feels like its going to fall out when you shift. Replacing the mounts with solid poly mounts drastically reduces the engine movement which makes the car feel like it's putting power down a lot better, shifts become more quick and crisp. I'll let you know how it is on the 2.5 after I install it. Mounts transformed my gti, can only imagine they will be an improvement on the larger 2.5

Sorry to hijack being I have a mk5. Same thing though almost
Keep posting, the MK5 and Mk6 are pretty much the same, it will help us fore see problem areas.

EDIT: Plus we value your experience and insight with the MK6 platform.

Will do. The mk5/mk6 golfs and gtis have the same chassis so I would expect the mounts to do the same across both platforms. I'm not sure how it's going to be with only replacing the engine mount and not the trans. If it's unbalanced after I'm going to buy a drop in bushing from black forest industries for the trans mount.

Keep us posted, my '10 is at about 90K miles (140k km) so mounts may be required in the future.

Yesterday, I returned from an emergency round trip to South Carolina to check on my property. When I left I knew the rear brakes were thin but they wore down during the trip to metal on metal, limped home for the last 6.5 hours.

Today I did a full Re & Re of the rear brakes pads and rotors, did a full clean up and lube of the sliders and shims. Rear pads replaced with Hawk HPS brake pads with OEM rotors. The rear bakes ran hot metal on metal so did a completed brake and clutch bleed using my new new Motive power bleeder with VW brake fluid. Doing a full front brake Re & Re in the near future.

I use a Canon Rebel XTI and these were shot with a 50mm.

The flickr Photostream should show the camera settings for the shot.

Stepped out today to take a few photos and found this cool ally. Pulled out my tripod and pretty much as soon as I got set up, a car wants to roll on through. Run back in, air up, move aside, reverse back, align car, air out. Happened to me 4 times haha -- rinse and repeat.

More in Photostream if click on photo.
