The sena is awesome. Even just for Am/FM radio. Definitely recommend getting one.

Of course! First the i bought was a helmet and Sena. Love the intercom function.. barely ever listen to music or talk on the phone but well worth it just for the intercom and talking to my buddy while riding along.

150k and climbing. No carbon clean, just 3000+rpm driving whenever I can to burn it off. Beast mode activated...

Haha. Our speeds limits are 70 so 80+ is easy to see outside rush hour

With my water pump going out last month and my radiator starting to leak this month, all I can say is if this trend continues, I'm ditching the GTI soon! I generally expect to get to 100k before I need to start spending $200 to $300 replacing parts that fail every month, not 60,000 miles where I am just out of warranty.

On the bright side, I did perform a carbon clean last month while I had the intake manifold off to change the water pump and my MPG increased after doing that! I believe my old job, where I spent the bulk of my commute in stop and go traffic, contributed to the carbon build-up. At least my current job is mostly spent moving, albeit a further commute, so I would hope that would keep the carbon down for another 60,000 miles. Granted, if misc crap keeps failing on a monthly basis, I don't know how much longer I will put up with it.

Its sad to see how slow this forum has gotten... I enjoyed coming on here often while at work and seeing all new stuff for a quick break from the office. Now i come on and there's maybe a post in the "What did you do to your car thread" and that's about it.

Even the off topic has died a horrible death. The literal last post in the off topic lounge was over a week ago.

I miss the old days
Kinda feels like it is...I'm new and have tons of questions. Would be nice if the OG's were still around to help pass on their knowledge.
