    MK7 GTI over 100k, what am I in for?

    My 2015 gti started giving me issues around 50k. I was the original owner and always used 93 octane. I also lived in a city (Chicago) so lots of stop and go traffic. Some symptoms I experienced were misfires, harsh ride, low power, power surging when trying to accelerate. One of the flaps on the...

    2019 GTI MT transmission issue

    Can you still start the engine? Personally I would take it to an independent shop instead of the dealer. Pure Motorsport is in your area.

    Basic Audio Upgrade Help

    Here's some more info about the clarity. You can also keep your spare without issue. Totally worth it imo and not too expensive. Install is pretty easy and only took about 30-40 minutes.

    Basic Audio Upgrade Help

    Bags Vs coilovers

    I had a mk6 gti that was bagged. Looked cool when parked but that's about it. Had a couple issues here and there, ended up switching to coils. So much easier to not have to mess with anything and just get in and go.

    I have a 1.8 gsw 4motion with an is38 and supporting mods. My Sachs stage 1 clutch just went out after about 40k miles even though the my tune only calls for 334 lb/tq. Decided to go with South Bend Stage 2 Endurance w/ SMF this time around. I would probably look into Stage 3 kits if you're...

    Stock Clutch Confusion/Fear

    Maybe they resurfaced the flywheel? My sachs clutch started recently slipping and the other night I barely made it home. During that drive home I had a lot of the same symptoms you had. It’s been parked in my garage since and I ended up just ordering a new clutch kit that will be going in next...
