    Golf R Stage 2 No Fly Zone AZ 2021

    I've had two different Rs I've taken, had the same parts (literally) on both. JB4 custom map 6, downpipe, intercooler, modified intake, res delete, mounts. I do a splash of e85 but dont change the tune. First R was a manual. Ran 12.5xx@116 was my best but was all over the place because manual...

    MK7 Confessions

    Putting my car away for the winter next month. I've driven it less than 2500 miles since last August (stored from November-April) so I really should be selling it but if I do I don't trust my wife to ever agree to another "fun" car since we just had our first kid. Between the 650 a month payment...

    Used GTI prices are nearly as high as those for new MK7.5s

    Vroom and carvana both recently offered me about 4K less for my R (42ish vs 38ish) than they did in late June Only has 700 more miles.

    New 2021s still arriving at dealers?

    I'm the one being obstinate? You're praising Honda for having one sentence, one poor image, and no technical or pricing information on their website for a car that is launching in a few weeks. JFC. VW would have sold exactly 0 more GTIs if they had a GTI page 12 months ago with one photo and a...

    New 2021s still arriving at dealers?

    Honda announced the car a couple weeks before it will be available. Based on Honda's timeline VWUSA shouldnt have even confirmed we are getting the mk8 yet. Sounds like that would have made you happier. The info currently available about the SI on Hondas website (Turbo and manual) has been...

    New 2021s still arriving at dealers?

    You're bitching that VW didn't put out a fluffy front page that read something along the lines "the MK8 GTI will be a fun to drive turbocharged sports car" with one shitty photoshopped image? The link I included has far more information than is available for the SI and the GTI is still months...

    New 2021s still arriving at dealers?

    ??? The SI section on Honda's website gives far less info (literally one sentence saying it comes with a turbo, a manual and will be "exceptionally fun") than the MK8 section on VW's (which gives starting prices, colors, actual power figures, displacement, tech updates like the heads up...

    2018 Golf R woes since purchase - original owner - insight appreciated

    The wheel coverage is the only add on I ever consider for cars I buy. Got a new tire and had two wheels refinished in the first 12 months which covered about 75% of what it cost. No doubt I’ll make it all back and then some before it runs out in 2024.

    Anyone running a JB4 AND a IE Stage 2 tune?

    The record for fastest manual is (or was, haven’t checked lately) a unitronic stage 2 car with a jb4 stack. Edit: just checked, still the record holder.

    you need a credit card your wife isn’t on. Never added her to either of my accounts that I had before we married. Harder to do after the fact I’d imagine.
