    Anyone had windshield replaced on mk7.5 GTI with rainsensor and the crash avoidance options?

    Dealer is saying it will take 5 hours and cost $750 to re-calibrate the car, requiring all sensors to be recalibrated and an alignment done. I thought the windshield with the one round spot was just the rain sensor and the crash avoidance sensors were behind the VW emblem. Anyone know if this...

    Anyone know how to turn off the speed safety infotainment restrictions in a mk7.5 base stereo

    cheap alternative - gt3 ducts

    Don't use these. While we don't know if they are better or worse at cooling with data, I can tell you that they constantly contact speed bumps and debris, break and get misaligned. It just isn't worth it. Stick to the RS3 deflectors.

    Base mk7.5 system with JL C1 650 and JBL GTO 629

    I was looking to do an inexpensive, easy upgrade to the factory base system and didn't want to add a lot of weight. I decided to start with speakers and decide if I needed more. I did the woofers and tweeters in front first, huge difference, but the rears were still awful, which meant I had...

    Review of APR roll control springs

    After a few weeks, and after getting over the initial disappointment with the springs lowering the car more than advertised, I'd like to offer a review. My goal for this car is replicating the spirit of the CSS with my 2019 Rabbit GTI, thus why I wanted less than an inch drop and nothing too...

    Consolidated Macan Brembo upgrade thread (READ FIRST POST)

    One person is currently having a possible issue with Castrol SRF brake fluid and the seals in these calipers. Until this issue is verified and a solution found, I would avoid using it for now. Several of us have had good luck with Motul 600 and 660. Also, for some reason it's harder to get all...

    Planning on 245/40 17 Hankook RS4. Better options???

    Planning on 245/40 17 Hankook RS4. Better options for tracking??? My goal is ease of fitment, low cost, good wear. 245/40 17 is one of the cheaper sizes in the 200tw world. They'll be on a 17 x 7.5 because that's the size wheel I have and I don't want to buy new ones because my wife will not...
