    How-to: modify RS3 brake ducts to fit Superpro aluminum LCAs

    In case anyone wants to see how to modify the RS3 brake ducts to fit the Superpro aluminum's minor. Snip one guide off and drill a hole. Fits very tight now, before they were a bit loose without the hole. On the stock base-Golf LCAs I only had to snip off the most inward guide (and...

    Suspension measurements and surprising findings on my Sportwagen - B8s/H&R Sport setup

    So I decided to nerd-out as I do and do some suspension measurements to figure my droop and bump travel. My setup is GSW w/4Mo + DSG, Bilstein B8s, Eurosport Street camber mounts, H&R Sport springs. Beyond those primary bits, I have H&R f./r. upgraded sway bars (27mm/25mm, respectively), 034...

    Any way to change steering limit/end stops?

    After install of my Superpro LCAs and Euro Sport Camber mounts my APR BBK rotors are rubbing the LCA at full turn limit. Is there a way to change where that limit is on these cars? Not hard to just not turn to lock but would be great of there is a way to just adjust it.

    Timing chain tensioner issue

    Sounds like I'm getting some chain slap on start up once in a while, goes away quickly but it's there. Anyone have experience with this on the gen 3 1.8 or 2.0? What I'm really looking for are the channels to look at and specs for the chain to check for stretch - I'm guessing it's just the...

    Combining rear deadset kit with rear subframe inserts....possible?

    Is it possible to use both a rear deadset kit (Tyrolsport, ECS, other) with the rear subframe bushing inserts (034, CTS, other)? They seem to accomplish different things - deadset kit (bolts/collars) to line it up/keep the subframe from shifting and the inserts to keep remove movement in the...

    Carbon cleaning pics - 73K miles IS38 FBO blah blah blah

    Don't look bad at all. Had shop replace my water pump/thermostat b/c it was time - leaking got pretty consistent. They were in there so why not. No trouble/issues/misfires.

    Superpro LCAs - talk to me

    Looking at these for my Sportwagen. They add 1 deg of caster and 0.5 deg neg camber. For those that have them, any downsides? I don't think I'm low enough to have drama (just H&R Sport springs) and don't run crazy wheel fitment - just 18/8.5 et 45s with 235s. I am curious if the RS3 brake...

    What is the obsession with plugs to fix KR in the MK7 world?

    I get that the plugs need to be replaced more regularly on tuned MK7s but why do folks always think timing corrections/KR/"knock" is always plug/plug gap related? To me, plugs can be the source of misfires and KR is almost always fuel-quality related.

    Second HPDE at VIR download/discussion

    Here is some info etc. from my second HPDE experience at VIR with the PCC Audi Club. Car: Tires. The PS4 all seasons actually do v. well for a novice driver like me, the main issue is melting/chunks/wear from the lack of camber and my novice driving skills in some corners – these are not cheap...

    Oil temp study

    Oil temps. I read things all the time online that will state things like “XYZ oil dropped my oil temps 10 degrees” etc. I’ve never bought it. Here are my data. From my testing, it’s all based on ambient temp, RPM, and incline/decline of the road. I also believe elevation has an impact b/c it...

    Coilover question - adj preload vs. adj shock body

    Coilover question for the suspension gurus out there. I am trying to deal with this in my head and struggling for some reason. Some coil overs have both an adjustable shock body and adjustable pre-load. Some have adjustable pre-load only. On the adjustable shock body coil overs, you are...

    DSG jumping out of gear on take off

    Currently getting an intermittent issue with the DSG in my 2018 Sportwagen. Car is tuned with Unitronic software (ECU/TCU) and has the customary bolt-ons. From a standstill in D/S/M, occasionally when releasing the brake to pull away, it will momentarily hop out of gear before jumping back in...

    What is the obsession with warranties?

    Over and over you read threads where the warranty is a prominent component of the ownership experience for some. You read of folks paying to have a shop look over the car with a fine-toothed comb before the warranty runs out to hand the list to the dealer of things to fix. Nearly every mod...
