    FS: Set of 4 18" Austin Wheels (MD/DC/VA)

    Prior to selling these wheels, I was thinking about wrapping them in a set of winter tires. Maybe I should have gone with that plan?

    FS: Set of 4 18" Austin Wheels (MD/DC/VA)

    I had a set of Bridgestone RE-71Rs for autocross, and I was very happy with them. In the short time I autocrossed the GTI (I purchased the car in summer 2020), whenever I was at an event with other GTI's, I think I always had the fastest time of the GTI bunch. I'll credit the tires! For what...

    FS: Set of 4 18" Austin Wheels (MD/DC/VA)

    I'm not willing to go that low. If you want to see if we can meet somewhere in the middle, send me an email message at hubleymj. The part that comes after that is verizon.net. I'm in Dunkirk now, just a couple of minutes from Rt. 4.

    FS: Set of 4 18" Austin Wheels (MD/DC/VA)

    Up for sale is a set of four 18x7.5 (49 mm offset) Austin wheels. All four are in very nice condition. Center caps are included. The image of the single wheel is representative of the four, and I can send more pics. $500 I live south of Annapolis, and I am willing to drive to meet someone in the...

    Stud conversion kit

    I get that you want black, and that you want things to look the way you want them to look. There is nothing wrong with that! However, with studs, the open ended nuts are not very visible.

    Stud conversion kit

    As the owner of both Porsche and VW, it is also my understanding that Porsche is R14 and VW is R13. They may work OK, but I do believe the size is different.

    Stud conversion kit

    I could not find black nuts. If anyone finds a source for black, open, R13 nuts, please post.

    Stud conversion kit

    I got mine from Rennline: Rennline wheel studs I got the 35 mm size, which is their shortest. I did not want studs that would stick out past the surface of the wheel, and these are perfect. Although these are marketed for Porsche, they fit the stock VW hubs. Rennline did NOT have the proper nuts...

    Shift Knobs

    I recently purchased a knob from SportShifters. I did not like the appearance or the feel of the stock knob, and after seeing a pic of the SportShifters knob here, I decided to get one. I like the shorter, more substantial-feeling knob. One thing I did not like after the installation with the...

    Free MT6 wonder mod: OEM bleeder delay removal

    I removed my bleeder valve earlier today. (I removed the spring a few weeks ago.) Simple enough job, thanks to the instructions provided here. After a 15-minute test drive, I believe I notice a difference. I think it is particularly apparent as I release the clutch pedal. For lack of a better...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I installed an ST 25mm rear sway bar. Went back and forth about purchasing fancy end links or just replacing the stock links with something similar. For various reasons, not the least of which was to save a few $$$, I went with a fresh set of similar-to-stock (Lemforder). I might have gone with...
