    WTB: Passat R line or Mk7 GLI DSG

    Yeah lol the more I thought about it the GLI is a lot nicer/better built car. I didn’t tell my wife anything about pricing until she drove one and compared it to the Passat. We have a seven year old and a three year old, who regularly ride around in my GTI. The GLI has a slightly larger rear...

    WTB: Passat R line or Mk7 GLI DSG

    Thanks! Considering all the options vs a GTI or R it’s a pretty sweet deal, I’d definitely say go for it!

    WTB: Passat R line or Mk7 GLI DSG

    Preston VW in Boardman, OH is the absolute worst. Between my dad and I we bought three new Tdi there and I’d never spend another cent with them after BS they pulled with us individually and friends on different occasions. We used to have meets there and a great relationship with the dealership...

    WTB: Passat R line or Mk7 GLI DSG

    That’s what the wife picked, so I just put my deposit on one. This will be the third new Volkswagen I’ve purchased from Volkswagen South Charlotte since 2011, so if that goes to show anything they’re extremely easy to deal with. I won’t be going there at all. Made the deal over the phone and...

    WTB: Passat R line or Mk7 GLI DSG

    Had the wife test drive a Mk7 GLI and were down to choosing a color. Either way it’ll be a Autobahn DSG

    I’ll have to sit down with my wife and see when will work for me. She’s the one who stays on top of family events and appointments.

    We can always send two separate groups if we end up with a lot of cars. The lot at the brewery/food truck has plenty of space for a group photo. Spreading out and making a running order worked out great last time so everyone could safely run their own pace.

    Video: Knocking sound coming from the rear of the car after installing APR coilovers. Can anyone help diagnose?

    That takes more effort than cracking the RSB endlinks loose and properly re-torquing them (weight on wheels) Nice! I’ll grab a set of those as well, the rear mounts sit down in far enough they’re more of a pain than the front so that’ll probably work even better.

    Weekends, especially holiday weekends are never going to work for me. Aviation industry is seniority based for days off, and my just shy of a decade ain’t shit lol.

    Is38 oem plus or vortex hybrid

    Ed from EQT would be able to answer with more confidence, but those numbers would be at the very high end of what’s safe with stock fueling. I believe the HPFP is a good precaution even if you only wanted 430whp on 93. It’s better to have headroom and not need it.

    Video: Knocking sound coming from the rear of the car after installing APR coilovers. Can anyone help diagnose?

    In real life I can locate the source of a sound a million times more accurately than from a video. Anyway there’s only so many probable causes and sway bar bushings isn’t one of them. The noise is metal on metal now that I got to actually listen to the video it confirms my suspicions. Was your...

    Top 10 Mk7 Mods

    No need for stage 1. There’s still gains to be had, I actually ran my full TBE for about 30k miles while still on APR stage 1 since I was trying to get a decent life span out of my OEM clutch (which was still in great condition at 49k when I decided it was time to upgrade). The gains from a...

    Misfire after Unitronic Stage 2 IS20

    It’s going to be an issue with something you just changed. -tune -DV on the is20 (is it a known good part?) -fuel It’s highly unlikely coil packs just so happened to go bad out of nowhere the day you slapped a new turbo on. I’d start with double checking the tune and Dv

    You still think your OEM intercooler is up for the task of stage 1, or did you take my advice and look into that? When I write a reply it’s not just for you cupcake, it’s also for the people who actually use the search function to look things up for themselves. When the next guy comes along and...

    Integrated Engineering - Why Can't I Find Any Threads?

    I’m blunt and to the point no matter what the situation, take it or leave it. I explained right off the bat that I wasn’t going into detail as to why IE isn’t a good choice. He could’ve taken that as a tally towards no, don’t go with IE & moved on to those with feedback claiming it was a good...
