    PSA: before you take your car apart...

    It's always the 4th corner of suspension on my past Hondas where I encounter the bolt or ball joint that changes it from "damn I'm making REALLY good time on this," to "this piece of shit motherfucker." I've hit that point three times on two cars where I've had to completely uninstall everything...

    Tyre noise

    It's probably the rubber band tires, but without a clip of the noise, I'm just typing on the keyboard. If the nose sounds like it's resonating everywhere, it's probably the tires; a wheel bearing will resonate from a more specific area.

    What did you get in the mail or bring home for your MKVII today?

    Stage 1. I had a 95 civic and replaced every bushing with sphericals, including the external reservoir coilovers, which was my DD. 25 year old (single) me loved it. 36 year old wifed-up me needs to be more thoughtful and considerate lol

    Backup camera

    Mine goes chromatic/static on hot days when the sun faces the rear of the car. Problem is, it still happens so inconsistently that the dealer can't reproduce it and simply me filming it doesn't qualify it for warranty/goodwill.

    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    I'm fairly certain that's just the cover. The foam would be a different sku.

    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    You may be able to do a patch reinforcement from the underside, but for the disassembly required to get to that point, I'd see if you could find a new cover altogether. EDIT: What I found, assuming it's the driver's side. 5GM-881-405-AM-EVT

    HELP :) mk7 pano roof won't close

    That's what I'm thinking. It's likely a sensor that gets depressed when the glass is down, so it may think the sunroof is closed.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I got the H6 for my wife's TDI from Costco, but opted to stay H5 on mine because the battery cover won't fit – learned from her car. She doesn't notice, nor would she care, but I'm a psycho and I do care lol

    Looking for cup holder ideas.

    How much fucking coffee do you need to drink? 😆 I use a 20oz white plastic Starbucks cup. 5-6 scoops in a French press, underfill the water an inch so it comes out like mud water, ice it down, splash of milk, and I'm off the walls. Maybe not the wisest, as I'm holding scissors and razors most of...

    Just ordered some BFI stage 1 mounts. 10% off, no tax, and free shipping. Car has ~72k, and to my knowledge has factory mounts (33k when I bought it). I have the 034 dogbone mount and inserts, so I figure now's as good a time as any to finish the rest.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Car wouldn't start Sunday, so new battery installed Sunday. Seemed like over the course of two or three days the cranks just got slower until Sunday AM it just ticked. Awesome. Got whatever the o'Reilly's performance battery is. Would've loved to upgrade to something really nice and...
