Checked my oil today. Still full after 1100 miles. I was thinking I was losing half a quart every 2500 miles. We'll see in another 1000 miles if the oil has gone south on the dipstick.

That reminds me we have to change ours but no filter on hand so maybe in a day or so.

Hinestly even though i got 115k miles on my car. Never seen any oil loss.

Only isse engine wise is occasionally it burns coolant. Or it does it very slow. It was fine the first 6 months i owned it. Then one day i noticed it wasnt at the max line but rather the min line. Topped it back off with distilled water and it hasnt moved in the last 2k miles. So i honestly dont know if its a tiny slow leak or of it just randomly is like naw we dont need that today. Never seen a drip on the ground though.

I didn't start losing oil until after removing the PCV/Valve cover and I am pretty sure how I set up the catch can initially was the cause of that. I basically had a hose pumping oil directly out of the valve cover to the catch can so the run between the two was too short and too low essentially siphoning oil into the catch can. Whoops.

I have to go on record as saying I hate washing cars, but today while getting gas a guy walked up and offered to wash/wax my car without water, it worded great on the hood, fenders, windshield and even got the brake dust off the wheels. I couldn't pass up the buy one get one free offer. ... we'll see how it works when a Shmuck like me uses it.

What I did to my MK6 2.5 today....

Been awhile since I posted - wanted to share some updates on my 2012 2.5L Golf MK6.

So far I've done mostly engine stuff - Short Air Intake, Stage I Tune (IE), and AWE Catback with Glasspack resonator.

I recently picked up a set of R32 (2008) 18" rims - what a difference and they look so sweet - kind of following an OEM+ kind of look and feel. Then I picked up a MK6 GTI suspension with 20,000 miles on it (price was right at $40), had that put on and things were lowered about 1/2". Also got a set of GolfR Brakes + steel lines + new pads on the rear put on - feels really good now as the engine mods made it easier to overdrive the capabilities of the brakes. Getting the brakes and the suspension updated really rounded things out nicely.

Attached some photos for those who are interested.

Just got the United Motorsport Stage 1 tune this afternoon in Toronto. Didn’t really get on it until halfway home due to the tropical rain storm in Southern Ontario. First impressions:

Much more grunt down low and a very linear and defined connection between the throttle and the engine with improved response and accessible power throughout the rev range. I’d say there’s a noticeable improvement in power and torque, but, more so, it’s got more immediacy to it.

Where did you get it, and how much?

I went to K&H Radiators in Scarborough. There’s a drop down menu on the UM site for all Ontario vendors. I think it was $475.....I made a few big purchases this weekend lol.

After driving it today I’m impressed. It’s not that it’s making monster power or ready to slaughter all takers. It’s just using what it has so much better with vastly superior feedback from input with a bit of added zip.

Really nice to hear! Now I have to debate between delaying my LED taillights even more for some more sweet performance gains

Anyone here have golf R headlights(reps)(no LED). I got a set off kijiji like 6 months ago and have not put them in yet due to the fact that its missing the retainer clip that holds the bulb in place. I went to VW and got DS2 (thats the bulb it takes) retaining clips but they don't fit (too small). H7 HID adapters are also too small. Wondering if anyone that has em can shoot a pic of what it looks like or if anyone has any suggestions on how to make the bulb stay in place...the guy I got them from said the MK5 DS2 clip will fit but he is wrong.

Hi all! I read a couple months back that someone (I donít remember which company) was planning on releasing a transmission tune for the 6-spd Automatic. Does anyone know who that might be? Iíve been searching for the post forever lol Thanks!
