I drove my Mk6 to the dealer to talk to the service manager...and ran into that car.

I believe the black part on the roof is the sunroof and not vinyl and the mk7s have color matched lower valances!

Went a little cray cray today. Had a cel after installing exhaust. No surprise really. So today I finally went apr stage two plus

In the process I got myself r8 coilpacks and did a little crafty work as well





And a little bit on the engine cover. Doubt that will last long though

Surprising so few people know about/add the Double Apex replacements. Everyone discusses the S2Ts or those stick on ones. These are $100 cheaper than the S2Ts in aluminum or the beautiful handmade carbon fiber I got. Adding these improves the driver "connectedness" to the transmission in a lot of ways. It's a weird oversight by VW. The BRZ has better paddles and the transmission sucks. Ones that stick on with tape are functional and all that...but these are Porsche-quality. The design also matches the steering wheel. . As for stick on ones: there's no excuse, they look half-assed. Sure the + and - don't light up but who cares? I'd say his simple mod would fix most ppl's gripes by making M mode more effective. I have a hard time not using em.

Adding the replacements definitely hurt my gas mileage more than the tune

Yeah the stock "paddles" are pretty disappointing. These are way more functional, and really well built. Being able to turn the wheel and hit paddles from different angles is a big improvement. I never even considered stick on ones, that seems pretty lame. I've always been an MT guy but these are pretty fun!

They probably designed the stock ones so people don't accidentally hit them, but to keep them the same for 10 years and not even give cars like the R better ones? Oh well...the new A3 doesn't even get em!
