Maybe if I'm lucky I can get away with not needing an alignment. I'll probably just get it checked and see where it's at. There's only one setting on the rear anyway, right?

So much money for some bolts and fancy washers


My feelings exactly.

I didn't know rear clunky existed as well. Always thought that was sway bars and endlinks making noise.

So, time for a truly stupid question.

My 2012 GTI is extensively hail damaged. I have seen ads for a local 2012 Golf 2.5L that has a rebuilt title due to flooding. The body work on the car is perfect. My question is, would it be possible to swap everything from my beat up GTI into the golf and make it a GTI, and swap everything from the golf into the GTI and make it my beater golf? I know it would be labor intensive, just wondering if there is anything preventing the conversion in the first place.

Sorry to hear of your bad luck. I imagine that it's possible and VERY labor intensive, but some things might not fit quite right so some customization would be needed.

A ton of work/labor

And while the hail is cosmetic....I'm not sure going to/working on a flood car would be a better situation.
You'd have to gut & swap everything (including wiring, to be safe) from the GTI, IMO, for a perfect car in the end....assuming there's no rust/corrosion from the flood damage

Two damaged cars don't always make a right either. You'd be stuck with a flood titled Golf with GTI guts in the end. Good luck explaining that if you tried to sell it.
Plus whatever the cost of the Golf is & any parts needed....could be a money pit.

Cut your losses and buy one nice(r) car, IMO, or keep what you have

You're gonna spends thousands of dollars or days upon days of your own time doing all that just to have a mehh car.

Sell what you can and buy a new(er) car.

I'm having a stage 2 clutch being put in on Thursday and I figured I'd replace the rear main seal while I'm in there, now will the shop have to do an oil change? Since when the rear main seal is taken out it'll gush out oil right? Kinda dumb question but that's why I'm here lol

Oil will not gush out, it may lose a bit. If you want an oil change ask the shop to do it while it's there. I'm sure there'd be an added cost.

Thanks. Another question, does anyone know how reliable the gti OEM xenon with led headlights are? I'm worried that the drl leds are going to burn out eventually.

So I recently started working in a pretty bumfuck middle of nowhere area where your radio will get all staticy here and there. Around night time I'll start up the car w no headlights on and the radio plays perfectly. Once I turn my halogens and fogs on the radio just turns to complete static. Very odd, anyone experience anything like this?? I could understand if i had HID Ballasts that theyd interfere w frequency but i have halogens lmao.

Some aftermarket bulbs interfere with the signal. My LED reverse bulbs do this.
