    My gti is leaking fluid but I can’t tell what it is.

    Looks like oil to me. I recently had to replace my oil pan gasket, the oil was accumulating in the same spot. Even with what appeared to be a lot of oil on the ground the oil level didn't seem to drop as fast as expected.

    Chasing creaks and squeaks

    So I had some creaking that started when the temps dropped. It sounded like it was coming from the passenger windshield around the top. I took every part off of the car that I possibly could and still had the noise. I ended up spraying WD40 dry in between the windshield and the rubber weather...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Dropped it off at the dealership, the oil leak I thought I fixed is still there, and the water pump is leaking. I considered doing the water pump myself, but I just don’t have the time or will to take it on.

    Mk7 Exhaust Tech. How to get the sound you want.

    Beastwood's quarter-wave resonator calculator (google docs) | Fiesta ST Forum I used this calculator. I think it could be done with some creative bends, and I'd really like to see someone try it. I just don't have the time, patience, or equipment to diy it.

    Mk7 Exhaust Tech. How to get the sound you want.

    I looked into making one of these and even found a calculator. The required length ended up being almost 4 feet long, not impossible to fit but more effort then I felt like putting into it.

    What did you get in the mail or bring home for your MKVII today?

    Got my replacement hatch area LED, I think it has been burned out since I got the car. I never even realized there was supposed to be one until I saw people adding a second one. 😳

    Do I Buy A DSG??

    Every car I've owned before this was a manual, I do love shifting through gears. However I got tired of shifting constantly during my commute. The DSG is great for daily driving and ripping around. I do miss shifting sometimes, but at least I can go in manual mode and get a partial fix.

    MK8 Configurator is up on VW USA

    That's why I never mess with configurators, I just pick all the options. Then I feel sad because I made a ridiculously expensive car out of my price range. lol
