aww yeah! car holding up good it looks like

wish I could take my time with mods like you.. i'm impatient haha..

you're almost halfway to 200k! I'd get a carbon cleaning done. Are you getting your DSG services done every 50k? I'm going to do my first one here in a few months, I'm at 28k atm but I'd like to do it before it gets too bad. Looks easy enough to do as well.

When you have a mortgage to pay, you kind of have ti be patient with mods haha.

I believe the service manual recommends doing the DSG service every 40k. The only reason I did it at 50k was because that was when I had the time and money to finally get it done. I'll do my next DSG service at 90k.

If you are referring to my PF01's, I like them a lot. They make a huge difference in acceleration and braking over the stock wheels.

I agree with this statement. There are far worse cities in the Bay Area than Hayward and Oakland. I grew up in Vallejo, so I can speak from first hand experience

How are the DG Springs on the Track?

I do track days as well, but I want to switch to DG Springs and downsize my front sway bar for more daily driving comfort.

The DG springs perform fine on the track. Keep in mind though, that I don't have any other experience with any other suspension set up (this is the first car that I've lowered and tracked). The stock struts leave a lot to be desired though.

Ordered an OSIR CF OEM style lip today for my birthday. Time to finally fill that space in the front bumper
