    Spring & Shock/Damper Installation Reference Guide

    I think it's time to lay my Koni Yellows to rest :cry: Will be looking to go back to stock height - not sure if I should just go back to OEM for practicality or get fresh Koni Special Actives.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I do mostly city driving nowadays. Lots of surrounding development (buildings and infrastructure), road improvements seem to be low priority. Winters always take a toll on the roads with salt and plowing. Currently have Koni Yellows with "linear" Eibach springs (E10-15-021-02-22) with shortened...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Procrastination came to an end, sort of. Installed an Ecohitch I picked up to use with a bike rack, which I still need to assemble. Next eventual task is reverting back to stock ride height. Roads suck ass here and I've had enough of daily driving a lowered car for almost 5 years now. Don't...

    Bicycle Mounting Options

    I picked up a used Ecohitch for my GTI, can anyone confirm if hardware is supplied when purchased new or you are supposed to reuse existing?

    Switching Rear Valence/Bumpers

    What year is your Golf? Pre-2018 only the Golf and GTI share the same bumper, so it's as easy as changing the valance. 2018+ the bumper is the same across Golf/GTI/R models so you can change the valance to your choosing with the exception of the estate/wagon version.

    VCDS cable for $50

    Don't bother, the malicious software is outdated and using genuine software will brick the cable. Just pick up a used OBD11 that will do majority of what VCDS can do with an easy UI interface, or find a used genuine Ross-Tech cable. You can always then make some money back by offering coding...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I got the same one for like $20 on Amazon Warehouse deals. Requires periodic pumping but for the money it works fine. Pneumatic oil extractor will be next if this ever breaks. Curious how you find the NVH with the diesel version, this is the route I was going to take to replace my 034 inserts.

    Where Does The Garage Door Clicker Go?

    To my surprise the driver side cubby has enough spacing to store my opener and OBD11 side by side.

    best option for more camber

    If you want a fixed plate with no increase to NVH, the Eurosport insert is the way to go. Paired with CSS knuckles will give you a decent amount of negative camber. Otherwise if you're building a track tool and NVH isn't a concern, go with adjustable plates like Vorschlag.

    Bicycle Mounting Options

    A bit unconventional but I really like my SeaSucker Talon. Easy to use and fits on pretty much any car. Hasn't let me down under excessive speeds. Downside is there's no security, they sell a cable lock attachment but I don't leave my bike up there...

    Blue Smoke on Startup

    It's a pretty common issue, it's the valve stems. Same thing on my IS38 GTI.

    FS: JB4 AFR Harness - Avoid Posi-Tapping Your OEM Harness!

    So you filed a case because you didn't give it enough time? Letter mail takes a while you know, especially from Canada to Europe. Do you not realize what's going on in the world today? You sound like an awful buyer to deal with...

    MK7.5 Rear Valance Removal

    Nothing to destroy, process should be the same. The bumper is identical across 7.5 Golf/GTI/R so it is the valance that changes. You'll see everything clearly once you're under the bumper.
