    Trailering GTI

    Anyone tow their GTI for track days and have some recommendation on trailer size/specs? I recently picked up a Nissan Frontier and I'm looking into towing a 14 or 16ft flatbed trailer. Prefer as small as possible, but strapping down the car on a 14ft may a bit tight.

    Hey guys, I've been trying to diagnose a front driver side suspension creak for the past several months, and I'm not having much luck.

    12v Outlet Switch Install

    I decided to install a switch to control power to the 12v outlets, regardless if the ignition is on/off. This comes in handy for charging phones or other devices when the ignition is off.

    How long until I cord these Michelin PSSs?

    I've got 3 track days (14 sessions) on my Michelin PSS tires. Was hoping to get 4 track days out of them, but with my stock alignment/suspension that may not be possible. Yes, I realize that I'm probably overdriving them...but I can't let those M3's pull away. ;) Think I can get another few...

    Looking for feedback from anyone that's ran Michelin A/S 3 tires at an HPDE event or similar.
