    2012 Golf R. Driving home last night I pulled the wiper stock to clean my windshield and washer fluid sprayed out from the headlight washer bumper cap. How is that even possible? I thought NA models were void of the guts for the headlight washer system?????? Yes I'm sure it's coming from the...

    Haldex = Helldex

    So I've read. I'm seriously considering a 2012 Golf R but I'm concerned about the Haldex. Can anyone give me any insight as to why some refer to the haldex as the Helldex? Thanks in advance.

    Should I get a Golf R

    I'm in Canada so all monetary amounts are in Canadian dollars. Dealership has a 2012 Golf R and they are asking $30,995 for it. It has 36,000 kms/22,369 miles on it.

    Clutch in the MKVII 1.8TSI

    Thinking about getting a VW wagon with the 1.8 TSI with manual transmission. I'm wondering if I'm going to have the same head ache with the 1.8 as I did with my 2012 GTI - slipping clutch with Stage II. My plan is only to go to Stage I with this car as most of my driving is around town...

    Minimum lowering

    Other then DG springs which I currently have on my car, what is the next best spring to achieve minimum lowering? I'd like to get rid of the front rake the DG springs give. Is there something I can do with the front to raise it slightly?

    RSB clunk solved.

    LMFAO. Loosened the RSB brackets, squirted a bunch of lube on the "maintenance free" urethane bushings and the clunk is gone????

    Replacing RSB on ramps?

    Can I replace my rear sway bar while the car is on ramps or does it need to be on jack stands?

    Rear clunk over bumbs-RSB

    I have H&R 26mm front SB and 22mm RSB. I'm having a clunk from the rear since I installed them. Since factory for the GTI is 23,6mm Front and 21,7mm rear, is there any reason not to reinstall the factory RSB while keeping the H&R front one in. THIS WOULD ONLY BE FOR TROUBLE SHOOTING PURPOSES...

    Rolling front fenders

    I've done the fender screw mod but I'm still rubbing on my front fender. Is there anything I need to know about rolling fenders. I'm going to have a shop do it for me so it's not a case of DIY. Just wondering if there are any negatives to doing this? OR I put factory springs back in as I'm not...

    Minimum Lowering

    I'm trying to lower my car just enough to get rid of the gap. I'm currently on DG springs which seem to lower the car about an inch but I'm not happy with having to do the fender screw mod to the clear my 225/35/19 on ET 45 RSe 14s. Is there a spring out there that will lower the car less? I...

    ST Coilovers

    Anyone running these? I looked at the SHS but the minimum front drop is 35mm. I like that the ST can go from 10-40mm. Feedback would be great. Looking for something that is going to give me close to the same ride as my DG springs on OEM struts.

    H&R OE springs.

    Anyone running these? They claim .25-.75" lowering. Might be a good alternative to the DG springs.

    DG Springs bottoming out?!?

    225/35/19 RSe 14s. DG Springs on factory struts. The front end is bottoming out when compressing over sharp dips in the front end. Any ideas? I haven't done an alignment yet but can't see that it will make a difference.

    Clutch Master Part #-Help

    Yes my clutch is slipping on Stage II so needless to say I'm pulling the trigger. In an effort to reduce chatter etc that a SMF creates I've decided to keep the OEM DMFW in place. Not to mention I want as close to a stock feeling/sounding clutch as possible. No real plans on going KO4 but I...
