It is the guidance tool for changing the tire,it makes easy for you since it's longer than the actual bolt.

Front sway install.

The outcome is better than expected;my main concern was how stiff would feel the car but actually feels smooth & somehow lighter:you can get more speed taking or during turns.
The front unconfident(nervous) roll is gone,waiting to test it in the rain to see how much planted the car feels and if the rear does the job to still slide the car like the rear normally does.I don't feel I lost rotation or balance however I have less wheel-spin. Overall I'm happy with my sways set up:hard/soft.


Stock bar



H&R 28mm

Modshack Low Profile Trim.

Finally installed!

In essence replacing the bigger line rubber gasket in the windshield area for the Modshack's lower profile allows cooling air once the vehicle is in motion and out hot air when the vehicle is sitting. The mod is totally reversible.

Somebody posted about cooling at the racetrack, Modshack showed this mod & I thought might be nice to give a try. But def. Surprised it not as common as some other mods.

I think I got some items from Him at once;months ago, if I don't mistake it was around $10.
He should have more trim left out of his GTI or some other fellow members who who tried to buy from him,send him a PM to double check the price anyways.!

did you have to install the "extra" sealing tape as well, or just the modshack lining?

Fresh Rubber

Log:Pirelli,Conti',Pirelli again.Never had issues in the first set,decided to give them a try again.The harder compound feels better for a more aggressive driving over the DWS,just a tad slower in the snow:good decent all season.
