    Have You Done A High Mileage Suspension Refresh?

    I'm at 92k on my 2011 GTI. Things still feel pretty good, but I'm noticing things aren't as fresh as they used to be: - subframe clunk/creaking on slow turns in/out of driveways - rear end sags slightly more than it used to--scraping tailpipe on driveways where i didn't use to - steering feel...

    New RCD330 Plus Headunit with Mirrorlink/Carplay

    Why is there such a wide variance in prices on AliExpress? I see some 187B's for $180 and they go up to $280... I also noticed they have WILD firmware versions (e.g. 5711, 5814). Guessing these are experimental. Would I be able to backtrack to a previous version? Is this free to download them?

    Anyone had the rear main seal replaced? Leaks?

    Hey guys, I was under my car doing a DSG change and noticed some fluid between the trans and motor. There were no drips and it was dirty, so it may not be a major issue right now, but definitely on the radar. I 'm wondering if anyone has any photos they could post up of what it looks like for...

    Weird issues with XDS & ABS interrupting normal driving when it should not be

    Has anyone had any weird issues with XDS & ABS interrupting normal driving when it should not be? I just got an alignment and new tires and all of a sudden the XDS is interrupting when I'm making normal turns (for example, an exit). I'm not ripping on the turn and there is zero tire squeal. It...

    How do I diagnose a faulty PCV?

    Hey guys, I believe I could have a faulty PCV or bad intake manifolder. The car is revving slightly at idle when put into neutral in warm weather. It's very weird. I popped the hood today, warmed the car up, and then I put my finger over the breather hole of the PCV. Before doing this, I...

    MK7 VW Golf R vs. B8.5 Audi S4

    R for overall value. It is cheaper to mod as well. The S4 is really pricey to mod. Labor is MUCH more. For example, to install downpipes, some shops will drop the motor. Ridiculously tight in there.

    Daily Driving stick sucks rant.

    Do the bump stop until you trade it in. That being said, I love my DSG coming from a 6SP MK6 GTI. It's an amazing transmission and much appreciated coming from the manual.
