Just set up my appointment to get my timing tensioner/chain replaced. Not having any problems yet, but I'm at 75k so I feel it's time to replace the tensioner.

$1650, but I don't have a detailed list of what that includes. A revised chain and revised tensioner obviously, and the $200 lower timing cover, but I'm not sure about any parts beyond that. I think he said it's like an 8 hour job, so he'll have it for 2 days.

I had a 2nd shop quote me too and it was only $50 off from the first quote.

I don't really want to do it. I feel like I could get away with it and trade it in before something would fail. I had bad luck with the chain on my last gti though, so I'll take that peace of mind lol

I paid 1750 for my exhaust manifold gasket. Lol I also had a broken stud they had to extract totally worth it in my opinion I'd have prolly gotten pissed broke something else or ended up needing them to finish. Peace of mind totally worth it.

Got my car back yesterday with my new clutch installed, new DP and stage 2 flash. Feels like an entirely new car. My left leg is going to be strong as hell after this break in period though lol.

I was really surprised by how stiff the clutch was on that first drive home. I was even more surprised how much the pedal softened up over night. That first drive home I was pretty stressed about the pedal feel, my leg even got sore. The next morning I went to start my car and the pedal felt so much closer to oem and absolutely nothing like it was the day before.

I had the same thing, although it was over the course of a week or so. Initially I was worried I wouldn't be able to daily the car because of how stiff it was and how hard it grabbed, now it feels great. Definitely harder to drive than the stock clutch but good shifts are so much more rewarding
