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

    My RallyArmor mudflaps came in today! Cannot wait to get these on, but I think I will wait until I switch off my winter tires at the end of next month.

    I would commit crimes to have your garage :love:

    “Nice GTI”..........It’s an R!!!!!!!

    Yeah I should've mentioned that it's my general beef with VW; the subtle changes they made to the interior for the mk7.5 were actually what cemented my decision to buy mine because I felt it was the best interior I'd ever seen from VW! But maybe I'm too much of a gamer always thirsting for more...

    “Nice GTI”..........It’s an R!!!!!!!

    LOL you can't really blame her, they look crazy precisely to draw attention so of course they're going to draw her eye when they drive by! Even for me it's impossible not to notice when a Civic R rolls up because it's such an assault on the eyes.

    “Nice GTI”..........It’s an R!!!!!!!

    My only beef with VW in terms of style has always been the interior - it's too staid! It's comfortable and quite functional, but I'm a loud person that likes a ~touch of flair :LOL: That said, when you have money, you know it and you don't need to show off (and whew those Civic R's are a...

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

    Bought some red gators as they were having a decent Boxing Day sale! Think these will go on my summers & I'll install them when I swap. Think they'll be a nice accent...

    Driver Survey

    As a former Impreza owner, I'm a bit embarrassed that I fall under both the speeding ticket and accident stats (I got sandwiched in my accident, to be fair! I may or may not still be bitter)... The Dodge Dart in the speeding ticket graph is a bit crazy, I can't even recall the last time I saw...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Winter fit put on today (y) Chunky Michelin X-Ice Snow 215/50/17's on some replica Pretoria wheels (I couldn't find them in gloss black so the silver will have to do). These beefy tires will be great for the purportedly extra snowy winter we're going to have in the Ottawa Valley. Very little...

    Card holder in the center console?

    Sooooo I have to apologize because just yesterday I realized you were right and I was wrong🤦‍♀️ There ARE clips next to the vanity mirror on the visor, for both driver and passenger actually. I hardly use the mirror and I guess I just never looked closely when I had the visor flipped down? But...

    Card holder in the center console?

    Sadly no, I don't have any clips on my visor and I believe that's the case for all the NA GTIs.

    Card holder in the center console?

    I'm mostly referring to mkyp's post in the previous page where they show that the container for the card holder is misaligned with the slot, making the whole setup janky to begin with. Regardless, I don't think I'll be touching it again.

    Card holder in the center console?

    LOL desperate times call for desperate measures! I just wonder a) Why on earth the card slot is misaligned the way it is and b) if it can be fixed so it’s not weirdly tight like that. I’m too traumatized to use it now...

    Card holder in the center console?

    All I had at my disposal in my immediate area was a pharmacy, so grabbed bobby pins and a cuticle nipper (they’re pretty powerful based purely on experience getting manicures). The cuticle nipper was the MVP! Once it caught the card it refused to let go & pried that sucker right out, thank...

    Card holder in the center console?

    I considered tweezers, but the darn card is too glossy & slippery for my tweezers to get a grip on it!

    Card holder in the center console?

    Apologies for reviving this thread, but I come hat in hand with an embarrassing situation... I was of the same opinion for a while that the card slot in the centre console didn’t go down very far, insufficient to securely hold a credit card. Today I was heading into the office for the first...

    Official Tornado Red GTI / Golf Thread

    I got a bottle of Chemical Guys' Butter Wet Wax from a friend & tried it out with this wash. Came out pretty nice imo, but I'm gonna try the Turtle Wax Ceramic Wet Wax at the next wash to compare.

    Official Tornado Red GTI / Golf Thread

    Gave my boy a proper wash and wax before I put his winter tires on next month... Gonna get him some Replika Pretorias for his winter boots while I shop around for cooler summer wheels next year :cool:

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    🤣 You're probably right, I just don't feel like risking it!

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Yeah I'd like to live that life as well, though in Ontario it's purportedly illegal to have any tint on a front windshield including a sun visor (strangely it's not explicitly stated in our traffic laws, but the police will ding you for it regardless) and because my parking spot faces due east I...
