    Bilstein B8 strut mount issue

    Front B8s are inverted and the bumpstop is already built into it. Not sure what the shaft diameter for the rears is though.

    Pearlescent black or black?

    Pearlescent paints have tiny ceramic crystals added to the paint so that the finish has a shimmering or color shifting effect under certain lights and viewing angles.

    Is it safe to buy a downpipe?

    On the mk6 you can gut the precat (and leave the main cat alone) for a free exhaust flow upgrade which is probably about 75% of the way to a new downpipe, but with the advantage of not triggering a CEL meaning you can get away with it even in places where emissions are checked. How’s the mk7...

    SRS-Tec spoiler with photos

    What material is this spoiler made out of? Fiberglass? Curious because their mk6 spoiler is probably my favorite one available.

    Sounds like pad fade. I run G-LOC pads on my stock calipers and they hold up with no fade. They are dedicated track pads though, so they get swapped in and out for every track event. I also use Motul 600, no issues.

    Dealing with hard water

    I never had great luck with blowers for drying, but I probably never had one that was powerful enough. Using a fresh microfiber towel per panel has been pretty effective though. My car is due for clay and polish, but you have to get pretty close to see any micro scratching.... and even that’s...

    Dealing with hard water

    Yeah that should help too. I’m not sure what’s in ONR but it’s always been good for me. I’ve read that some like to use Optimum Wax as a drying aid, but that always felt like a waste to me. It never felt like it was adding anything to drying and as a wax it seemed more effective to use on a dry...

    Dealing with hard water

    I lived in a place with bad hard water. I washed with ONR with tap water, washing each panel and immediately drying that panel one at a time with a fresh microfiber towel. Spots were only an issue if I missed some water and it dried, but would usually wipe away with a fresh microfiber as long...

    The VA is super fucking weird at times. If everything is neat and pretty and all tied up with a bow the second you separate they roll out the red carpet for you. One misstep or wait just one second after you separate and suddenly it's a completely different ball game.

    Yeah I'm pretty broken, they gave me 100% P&T on my initial filing. I found out less than a week after I was officially out. On top of that the VA told me in their response that I had a lot of things that I could still claim that I hadn't in the first filing.
