@socal87 how you like your DG springs btw? what struts do you have paired with them?
I'm still on the stock struts, which at nearly 150k are pretty tired. The springs were free, a concession from a dealer when I caught one of their techs abusing my car. I don't think they have a higher spring rate than the stock springs, as I've bottomed out my suspension and bent rims a few times.

I would recommend going with a coilover kit, honestly. You can find a decent set of KW coilovers for around $500, which should firm up the ride some without being jarring.

Anyone in the KC/Lawrence area have access to a VAG-COM interface that will work with a 2007 GTI? I have a bulb out somewhere, not sure where, and can't find it to save my life. Also would like to just scan the car to see if there is anything wonky. I'm in Lawrence, but will travel.

Ich verstehe nur Baunhof. No idea what you're talking about, I'm a Seattle transplant with no connections to KU. Can't wait to leave this stupid ass college town, we are buying a house out in the country.

I'm out in the sticks (Sedalia), and work in Riverside. Love the hour and 45 minute each way commute. LOL Moved there about a year ago from CO.

Anyone else a track addict?

My bad I read your last message as you saying rock chalk (KU chant) and there's a rivalry between Mizzou and KU that stems back to the civil war. So was just poking fun thinking you were a jayhawk fan.

plenty of places to get land out in KS to throw a house on tho.

I was going to say we need to have a meetup after this COVID garbage passes but now it looks like I might be moving to ID in Feb.

I will be out at Heartland Park in Topeka the 24th and 25th with NASA Pro Racing if anyone else will be. I won't be taking the R as it needs tires and brakes at least before I track it again so that will be my winter project. I'll be taking the TTRS so that will be a blast.

No, we literally live near Rock Chalk Park. That's the name of the park as well as the street we live on. Don't really give a shit about college sports, haha.

I love how cheap property is here. We are having a house built on the edge of a tiny town south of here.
