    Dogs

    FWIW, I got my dog a load tested harness for car rides, figuring that an unrestrained 15 lb furry missile would be less than ideal in a crash, and without risking a broken neck for him. The Solvit brand harnesses are very reasonably priced on Amazon and come with a carabineer to attach to the...

    **Gun Enthusiast Thread**

    I describe the P-10 series as, "Like a Glock, if Glock cared more about ergonomics. Fixed front sight like a Glock, takes down like a Glock, positive trigger reset like a Glock, better slide serrations and grip shape, trigger feels like a Glock that has an out of the box trigger job."

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

    I put a hole in the Weathertech All-Weather Floor Mats set that I had for my Mazdaspeed3 more quickly than the OEM all-weather set. The Weathertech Floor Liner set showed no signs of wear, but I also didn't have it for as long before I got rid of the car.

    18" OE PRETORIA wheels now available

    The 18" Pretoria wheels are cast, the 19" are either forged or flow-formed. I've read both, and can't be bothered to get in to the weeds about wheels that I don't have and aren't going to buy.

    I know that nobody wants it to be them, but when you make anything in big enough quantities, some parts that shouldn't pass QC will slip through, and the P365 has been one of the best selling pistols in the country since it came out. I've seen broken strikers in fairly new M&P and Glock pistols...

    Superpro control arm install?

    Yes, I had the same issue on my 2019 MT Rabbit Edition with my Whiteline LCAs. VW made a part revision in October 2018 that apparently included shorter studs. My independent VW/Audi mechanic was able to find some of the older ball joints for me.

    Bent Wheel - How bad is this?

    I sold my GTI's stock Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS with a few thousand miles on them on Facebook Marketplace. You might be able to do the same there or on Kijiji. Locally, some of the independent tire shops will give trade-in credit on good condition tires.

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

    You can buy them straight from Weathertech. Sometimes you can find them for less from 3rd party sellers.

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

    Nice. Mid 2000s-on Mazda vehicles are a lot like a Japanese VW to me; generally sportier dynamics and nicer interiors than the competitors, though other Japanese brands are starting to step up on the interior front. Mazda's lack of a true Mazdaspeed3 replacement is what got me to replace it...

    Nice, my father's been looking at a Holosun 510C for an AR pistol.

    Oil for 2018 Golf R - and oil changes on used vehicles (new to me)

    Things are a little different with me since I have a 2019 which takes 508 spec 0w20 that I can't find anywhere locally but the dealer. However, last time I did an oil change, it ended up being cheaper just to buy my oil change supplies from the dealer rather than pay a shipping charge.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Got Emissions Service Action 24FX done. Exciting, I know.

    What ammunition? A lot of factory 10mm loads are basically slightly hotter .40S&W. That, and a heavy steel frame goes a long way towards soaking up recoil.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Changed my oil because I finally had time on a warm day without 25 mph wind gusts.

    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    I've been driving manual cars for over 10 years and live in the flat Midwest, so I also forget about the hill holder feature.

    Which Michelin's? PS4S vs. PSAS4S

    I've been running the PS4S as on my stock wheels and switch to a winter tire to deal with the snow here. I woudn't worry about giving up wet traction with the PS4S; they're pretty darn good in the wet. They're not a cheater "street legal" tire like the Pilot Sport Cup 2. I wouldn't recommend...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    My wife and I have a white CX-5 for primary family hauling duties, but it is a pearlescent white! Also, the CX-5 was the possibly the best handling non-luxury CUV in that size class back when we bought it. In any case, we bought it used with an excellent documented service history, so we...

    Check out what I got

    You can run adapters if you're fine with a 15mm+ spacer, or you can sell them to a Subaru Impreza/Crosstrek/Foresterl owner.

    Dogs

    This is Apollo. My sister-in-law got him, then he ended up becoming our dog. He's a 6 year old Shih-Tzu/Maltese mix, who's on the big side for that mix (15lbs), but he knows he's a little lapdog. He'll bark at bigger dogs as a bluff because he's scared; he flees when they get closer. He's also...

    I generally tell people that sights are very much personal preference. Everybody's eyes/brains work a little differently when it comes to vision and sight acquisition. I have Truglo TFO (TFX minus the bigger colored front ring) on an M&P Shield, and they're very bright during the day and still...
