In the coming weeks I'm looking to pick up some DG springs and Koni yellows. I'll be raising my ride height obviously so that should help.

I just did the fender screw mod and slightly bent the mount up a little bit.

After I went and ran it through all the bumps that it would rub on before and I didn't get any rubbing. Pretty satisfied now.

Yeah, I couldn't stand it. I just hope that it doesn't rub too much on spirited canyon runs now.

That's where mine is rubbing. It's funny because when I got my alignment they altered my rear camber from from -2.1 to -1.95 and now it rubs. Gonna try -2.

For sure. I've been really looking at improving my handling a good deal. I like to shoot through the canyons a good amount and I don't track my car, so this seems like a good combination to get to where I want.

This is kinda perfect because I'm looking for another fellow GTI owner with rokblokz mud flaps. Do your mud flaps have a gap between the fender liner and the flap? Have you had any issues with snow build up between the fender liner and flap?
