I really like your car! Are you having success with the BC coils? I ran them on both NSRT-4's years ago and I loved them and I was wondering how they built out for the GTI's. I've been burned switching brands when it comes to suspension, and I already trust BC so it would be easy for me to buy from them again.
Thank you for the input and compliment!

I am very happy with them. They are the best bang for your buck, honestly. You can't go wrong. I knew they came with dampening adjustment, but was pleasantly surprised to find the also have camber adjustment on the front. Also, they came with sway bar links, so that's one less thing I had to spend on when installing them. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.

Hey question for you, where did you get your eurojet exhaust TBE from? I currently have a eurojet TBE but cant find any parts for them anywhere. Thanks!

Eurojet was dissolved by Revo. I think Revo intended to for EJ to make exhaust parts under the Revo name. I messaged them to see when we can expect MK6 systems and got no response. Pretty disappointing.

I was lucky to find a used TBE for sale on eBay. I was pretty dead-set on Eurojet since I got my car. Your best bet is to look on forums, Facebook, or eBay and find a used one.

Late Nov: I came up on some Lagunas locally for a steal. No way I could pass them up. They're not perfect, but they'll do. The tires were trash, so I swapped the tires from my Detroits.

Early Dec: Took advantage of the good weather , and mounted them on the car. 10mm spacers up front, 15mm on the rear.

This is "winter mode" for the car. I don't drive it in the winter. 'Til spring little one!

My Detroits are for sale, since I no longer need them.

Feb 2018:

Car is still tucked away for the winter. The battery was showing signs that it was on its way out. I bought a Bosch Premium Performance H6 battery as a replacement.

I bought some Dark Cherry LED taillights from a fellow board member. I should be getting them in the mail early next week.

Finally got around to installing the taillights. I must say the fit and finish of the Depo light is much better than the Ziza brand lights I had briefly. They look great!




I also tried on a wheel from the wife's A3 8V, for shits and giggles. Looks pretty good in my opinion!

Looking good Cherna. I put a German flag in the rear emblem insert to break all the black in the rear on mine, that said I got black exhaust tips lol. I still go back and forth on the LED tails. I want cherry red OEMs, eventually.

Thanks! I've been thinking about picking up something from Klii to break up that rear emblem. Still undecided.

I really wanted to go OEM, but I figured these Depo lights were worth a shot at the price I got them. To my surprise, they fit and look damn good!

I had Depo on my other GTI and I agree, they fit great! Unless I find cherry depos, I will get OEMs. Its not top of my list so i'll wait.
