    IS20 Turbo Longevity

    Now that the original Mk7 GTIs have been out for ~5 years now we should start seeing people hit higher mileage. Curious to see how people's turbos are handling stock conditions / tunes. I know there were some original turbo issues on the early revisions, but I haven't heard many issues since.

    A/C Variability Issues

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed any of these issues (not Cimatronic)... I noticed a couple months ago that when the fan was off (windows down) that fairly warm air was blowing through the vents into the cabin.

    The exhaustive what tire (conti) to buy?

    JB1 6MT Clutch Update "Poll"

    Because all of the 6MT people question about clutch longevity, let's dedicate this thread to only JB1 (not flash tunes) and figure out who's clutch has started to slip and who's hasn't. From what I've seen, there have been a select few people with clutch issues when paired with the JB1. List...

    Whirling Sound in Reverse - 6MT

    So I've had an "issue" that I've noticed for the past couple months. When I'm in reverse and start backing up I hear a moderate whirling sound right when the clutch bites. The car is silent with the clutch to the floor and engaged. I am not sure if this is normal or not and I only notice it...

    APR Boost Gauge Issue
