    Carbon Fiber Steering Wheel (Black/Red) w/ PICS

    I ordered this wheel last month from Justin @ and it arrived last week. I know Urotuning has been around for a while but don't think I had ever ordered from them before and was pleasantly surprised with their level of customer service and professionalism. The wheel came faster than...

    New Mod: Red Seat Belts

    Saw this idea a while back, but never thought much of it due to cost and amount of work just to do seat belts. Finally I decided to just bite the bullet and do it. I had to remove the old ones, send them out, wait a few days for them to come back and then reinstall. I used a company called...

    IS38 Rebuild vs. Hybrid Build

    I have an IS38 that I purchased that I am looking to either have rebuilt or explore the hybrid options. Rebuild: As a more basic and less expensive option I would have the turbo rebuilt, have it balanced and improve the oil lines. I think this is along the lines of what BMP Tuning had as the...

    Brembo TT-RS Brakes Installed w/ a Little Volkswagen Touch

    It’s been a few months of getting parts together, ended up buying two complete TT-RS setups, sourced other parts elsewhere and the end result is this. Absolutely love the brakes, little further pedal travel but stopping power over stock PP brakes is huge. Haven’t gotten them on the track yet...

    Seeking help with TT-RS brake clearance on 18s

    I have a set of TT-RS calipers that are set to go on my car and besides Neuspeed wheels I'm not finding too many 18" wheels that fit over the calipers. Ideally I'm looking for a wheel to run without spacers and anywhere between 8-9" wide. I came across the Konig Rennforms which are made 18x9 et...

    2017 CSG GTI Sport - "Grey Poupon"

    So after owning my car for a few months and doing a few things to it I felt there was enough to start a build thread. The car is a 2017 DSG GTI Sport that I bought at the end of January. I got my first VW in college, had a MKV R32 that I regretted selling. I went through a few other cars...

    I have an ODBEleven that mostly sits in my car so I figured why not help out local people who don't want to buy one just to do a few tweaks so I'm offering up mine to use in the area. I'm not charging to use it at all, just the cost of the apps which is a few dollars. You can just send me a...

    Looking for input on Bilstein B16/PSS10

    I'm going to do the suspension on my car and naturally came to the Bilstein B16/PSS10 coils quickly. My goals are to lower it a little bit, most likely near the minimum drop on the coils, and adjust to drive daily to the train station but i also go on fun drives numerous times a week on windy...

    What is your favorite auto parts store?

    Just curious where you guys go when you need something on the spot and why. Where I go to school there are a bunch of Advance Auto Parts, Autozone, O'Reillys, and a few others. For me I go to Advance Auto Parts because of location, friendly (not necessarily super knowledgeable) but they are...
