What did you do to your MK6 today?

Did you check the gap on the old plugs? Mine started misfiring while WOT about a year ago so I checked the plugs and the gap was probably 3x what it shoulda been. New plugs and it felt like a brand new car.
Yeah, they were all 0.028"-0.030", so not bad. Nothing wrong with how they wore either -- they looked pretty healthy.

After replacing the plugs and cleaning the air filter and MAF, I haven't had the same misfiring again. I threw in a can of Liqui Moly Jectron yesterday because why not.

This weekend or next, I'm gonna test fit the TT-RS calipers to decide if I'm gonna go with the stock 370mm rotors or if I'm gonna get the VAGbremtechnic brackets to run them with Golf R rotors.

Ah ok. Figured since rpf1 was on the table that 12 spoke was cool
I'm not a huge fan of how they look, they're more there just for performance reasons due to their weight. I also realized I might have to get shorter studs since the rotiforms have a center cap on them and my studs/lugs may stick out too much for it to fit on

I was looking for just 6 single spokes, easier to clean I just like that look a alot. Ideally I coulda gotten some TE37s, but I didn't feel like taking out another mortgage.

What about the T6R?

What about the T6R?
That does look like what I was going for, but it only comes in 18x8 with a 5x112 bolt pattern and I need an 18x8.5. The Rotiforms are already on there way though so no goin back now

Feels great to be off the heavy detroits. went from 29 lb rimz to 21 lb. Car handles much better. Coils inbound.


here is a pic in the sun, you can see they arent black but a really dark matte grey. I think they called it anthracite something. any way they remind me of the BBS RCs that used to come on the mk4 GLI

I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving year old oil no matter the mileage.

Picking up my GTI from the shop (Dubclinic) tomorrow. I had the following works done;
1. 40k mile service + DSG +Audi R8 Coils (version G) & plugs ; only 37k miles on odometer but decided to have this work done a little early due to the age of the car (MY2013)
2. H&R Front (26mm/hard) and Rear (22mm/hard) sway bars w/ Racingline drop links and Tyrolsports front and rear subframe collars and bolts
3. Racingline cup kit (Springs+shocks) + Euro bump stops + TTRS upper mounts w/ all new associated/recommended hardware
4. Alignment; I was worried about having all C C adjustments removed by the addition of subframe collars but the alignment results turned out to be just fine. It was done at a specialty bimmer shop.
I will find some time to describe my driving impression in my journal on this forum tomorrow.
At this juncture, I am not sure when I will be able to take the car to the tracks in my area so it will be a very limited review.
Very excited to have this major work done as part of my OEM+ project.

Next major work will most likely involve racingline brake kit + APR or Racingline Stage 1 + Ecstuning’s rear diffuser.
I may do MIB2 retrofit first if I end up finding a good deal on a unlocked kit. We will see....
