Wheel bolts.

Fucking, really...really...expensive exhaust shit...

Like a mandrel piece of 3" stainless steel, with a flange on one end and a v-band on the other end, and a hanger, should NOT be north of 300 bucks. 500-600 bucks with the cat of all cats in it. I don't give nine shits how many times it says APR on it. It still a piece of fucking pipe. It doesn't need to be cast either. It needs to be 304 stainless, v-band, hanger, flange that fits the stock cat back. Almost a thousand damn dollars for a fucking downpipe...OH OH OH...but you get stage 2 for "free"

>:|

Also you'd think a simple muffler delete for those who just want more noise would be easy to find. Fuck no it's not.

And I'm not cheap:



THIS manifold was a grand or a smidge more actually. What you can't see is the nice merge collector spike. Held my GT2871R on my Cobalt real nice.

Now how the eff can companies sell me a piece of pipe, that is only ONE piece of pipe, almost in the same realm for a downpipe!

Don't even get me started on the price of carbon fiber intakes...so...most people don't know that carbon fiber has a shelf life and deteriorates if exposed to UV light(aka the sun). Why would you want ANYTHING you plan on having for more than iono, 5 years, carbon fiber? I get that you can like the look, just don't act all surprised that your tube of Aramid fiber decided to come apart after the glue that basically holds it together started to fail because it's in all tempartures and probably subjected to getting fun shit like calcium chloride on it(what they use to pre-treat the roads with before it snows) and there's another 500 bucks gone.

I guess what I don't get, is, why can't companies offer the flashy shit and the "who fucking cares what it looks like, it's under my car, as long as it doesn't rattle and rust" shit too? It's a piece of pipe!

Also clutch chatter is not that loud. People should practice saying they want to keep their dual mass flywheels because it will keep you from pwning your FWD trans. Again, source:

Way too much torque, no-lift shifting(hey it was an advertised feature on the Cobalt SS), a 6 puck exedy hypersingle, and sticky tires:

+

+

=


And why the fuck can't you get a single mass flywheel that's like less than 15 lbs?

Are these like, tractor engines or something?

Now, tell us how you really feel?

If you google "(insert topic here) mk7 forum" it'll find anything.

The search function here is kinda shitty, but if you do an advanced search it's ok

50/50 on search of forum. it does tend to be overly specific if using standard search. As others say, adv. search, tapatalk search, or google search are helpful though.

Realising that those quickly written DIY guides, people actually pay attention to...


So you end up spending fecking weeks re-writing them & re-doing the pics to make them look way better.......


Oh & people who keep asking about something which is in the Guide that you have referred them to...read the fecking guide...I'm NOT typing out the flipping answer AGAIN, as all the info is IN the guide....learn to read & understand....FFS!!

But I'll make an exception for VWR springs.
I have VWR springs on my tsi. Puts the car where it should be at stock. I'm bothered by the fact that the lowest quote I got to install them (installed them myself) was $600 CAD. That or I was told "sorry we don't work on VW's."

Nothing, but the hooker in your passenger seat is cheap in the mk7 scene.

To be fair, vBulletin's built-in search in v3 isn't great. As a prior large forum owner, it was frustrating to me. But, I'm not sure most people know they can use Google to search specific sites. i.e. putting site:www.golfmk7.com license plate frames will use Google to search GolfMK7.com for "license plate frames".

Nice thread, put me in a better mood, haha!

...
Unicorn clutches on stage 2 GTI's that NEVER slip.
...
Will my downpipe throw a code? Do I need a spacer? So many threads (symptom of not having one iota of knowledge on how to search)
...
Got myself an ebay DP (does it have an ebay logo on it?)
...
