More trouble than it’s worth. If you need it that badly, sell your car and buy one that has it.

The cam follower doesn’t have a regular service interval. Just keep an eye on it and replace it when it needs to be replaced.

I find that endlinks need to be retorqued after a couple hundred miles any time you have them apart. If they loosen again after that, maybe add a lock washer.

You should be able to change the NAV unit's region code with VCDS. It should be module 37 (Navigation), channel 130 in adaptation, change the value to 2 for Western Europe.

No, it's a totally different mounting system. It won't attach to the Mk6 radiator, and the condenser won't attach to the intercooler.

Good choice. I'm not really convinced the TT mounts are any heavier duty than GTI or Golf R mounts, but they'll work just fine.

All the parts in the kit are what need to be replaced, but you should see if they can swap in good quality mounts, either OEM or Febi. Everything else is legit.

I'm on 18x8.5 ET38 with 235s and VWR springs. I had to do the fender screw mod, but after that it's fine. You should be ok with ET47.

I was forced to get ET38 to clear my brakes. They rubbed over large bumps at first with my VWR springs, but the fender screw mod took care of that.

They're 80A. OEM rubber bushings generally aren't any harder than 60A, but if I remember right they're 45A.

Yeah it took me a while to find them actually in stock, too. I ended up getting the fronts from FCP, I must have snagged ECS's last in-stock rear, and the other rear came from amazon.

I get a lot more road noise with poly control arm bushings, but the bushings themselves don't squeak. I just want a little more compliance in my daily driver.
