    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    I went from a 2019 Alltrack manual to a 2016 Touareg TDI. The Touareg is almost as efficient as the Alltrack on the highway, obviously fares a bit worse around town. For my use case, I really didn’t “need” the Treg but I also don’t regret my decision whatsoever. It’s the nicest car I’ve owned...

    Yeah I’ve heard bad things about EBC in general.

    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    Go to a different dealer. I botched the install on my ECS bleeder block a few years ago, right before driving the car across the country to Colorado. The line blew while I was in Denver (lucky not in bumfuck Kansas) and the mod friendly dealer there (to whom I was referred by locals on this very...

    Another 6MT gearing thread

    My MK6 GTI was the car I learned to drive stick on. It got the same gas mileage around town as it did on the highway lol, 28 city 28-30 highway hahaha. 65 mph @ 2750 RPM. I’d take a MK6 GTI transmission with a taller 5th and 6th gear (aka reduce the ratio of the 2nd pinion). Best of both worlds...

    WTB 2016-2017 R

    That’s a great buy. I’d take a 2017 over a 2018/2019.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Interested your overall impressions of the NMS GT. I’m sure the VR6 + DSG has its merits, but what about the steering and suspension? Stereo?

    I hate people…

    I have a thing about talking on the phone - I CANT STAND holding my phone up to my ear. It hurts my arm to hold it up like that, and it’s just awkward and annoying. I talk exclusively on speaker phone - unless I am at work in which case I use my ear buds with mic.

    Sport Trucks (or at least trucks that aren't 8 feet in the air)

    Obviously my Treg isn’t a “truck” but I don’t do any off-roading, I will be lowering with Cayenne GTS springs and Bilstein HD struts in a few years. They drive great for what they are and I’m really looking forward to closing that gap even more with the lower/stiffer springs and stiffer struts.

    Agreed on ridgeline. And if you wanna go lower I’m sure someone makes coilovers!
