I got the APR TCU tune yesterday at EuroDistrict. It felt amazing on the way home! Afterward? Not so much… 🐕🏠😞

Oh god selling the cost of the tune to the wife is always the hardest part.

"B-b-b-but you don't understand! for $600 I can go faster and save on gas mileage!"

Yeah, never works

Mechatronics cover and gasket. Hopefully this cures my leak once and for all....

The best cure for the DSG leak is actually swapping in a proper MT. I think it even says so in the VW literature.

Yesterday I swapped out my R8 coils (no idea the mileage on 'em) for APR's new coilpacks. I've been having an incredibly sporadic stumbling that I haven't been able to track. Bunch more exposition on my build thread.

They sure are purdy.

Oil change and cam follower on the R. Cam follower had no wear signs on the cam side, some wear signs on the pump side. I bought a stud conversion kit for it but didn't install it yet.
Oil change and warranty work on the Wagon tomorrow.
Oil change on the Wrangler.

Just purchased my brake "upgrade" for the R.

Drove it 3 hours round trip to see the leaves changing with the girlfriend in her MK6 GLI 30th, had a great time and 67 degrees was perfect. Boost Season for sure!

Had all 4 sway bar end links replaced @ 92000 mi. The rubber bushing in passenger rear was all loose and sounding like a bell when ever I went over a bump.

When i put my RSB on, that pass rear endlink bolt snapped after a few miles. It was rusted through and through.

I fixed the mystery creaking noise after replacing my shocks!!! I was driving and had to hit a few railroad tracks and it suddenly seemed to be getting much worse. I pulled over and popped the hatch and the spare tire hold down was loose af. I just couldn't figure out how I had messed up such an easy job lmao...

Dude, it's always the dumb shit. I was chasing a weird rattle in my pass. side that happened all the time on the highway. Checked several things, wracked my brain for months. Turns out it was the bluetooth module beneath the seat that was rattling in its foam holder.

Yea, it's such a relief when you finally figure it out tho.
