    Mk7 GTI maintenance (per VW + recommendations)

    You are on right track, the inlet pipe and intake is an easy install. On the Suspension side, some beef up the control arms with polyurethane or solid rubber bushings. The front subframe could be locked into place with a deadset mount kit. I don't know how roudy you'll be laterally with the car...

    Mk7 GTI maintenance (per VW + recommendations)

    If you are going to tune you could get a colder heat range spark plugs. You could also clean the intake valves via media blasting. For 2015 Turbos are known to fail. Water Pumps could leak and PCV valves could fail and over pressurize the crankcase, causing gasket leaks usually the rear main...

    Does anyone have a review for Whiteline lowering springs?

    I am back from the streets with real data transmitted from my rear. After a few hundred miles of mixed driving on varying qualities of road surfaces I could say that for me I do enjoy the lowering springs. I can't speak for other brands, but Whiteline dances on the edge of being too much at...

    Front camber adjustability options?

    Whiteline has Roll Center Correcting Ball Joints that have an Adjustable + or - .5 degrees of camber. Here. (it is on pre-order though) I have a few of their products and I've been happy so far. Also, this seems like to be the least expensive option for some adjustability.

    Does anyone have a review for Whiteline lowering springs?

    Hey Jshinz24, I'm that whiteline guy. If you give me a week I could give you my impression with it. I installed a RSB too so I might be a little biased. I am getting my clutch done so I can't drive the car at the moment. I should be driving tomorrow.

    Maintenance Suggestions for new owner w/90k miles

    I recently picked up a gti with 80k or so on it. Two words... The Clutch. I would check and see if it holds power in 5th and 6th gear. You don't have to over do it but if the gear indicator (in the gauge cluster) goes blank under moderate to harsh acceleration you may be in for getting a new...
