    FS: Porsche Boxster GTI brake kit. A.k.a. poor man’s BBK

    When you replace the rotors you use GTI rotors. There are a ton of write ups online on this. The only thing you have to do is swap the rigid pipes. This is because on a Porsche the caliper is set I said tell me behind the rotor. On the Volkswagen it is set in front of the rotor. Do you want two...

    Advice for those with front BBK.

    I never really put much thought into what would happen if I got a flat tire. Well today it happened. I pulled over, jacked up the car and removed the wheel. Just as I was about to put the donut on, I realized how will that be able to fit over my front BBK? Simple answer, it won't. I lucked out...

    Your compressor needs to run occasionally to circulate the refrigerant as a lubricant. Even in the winter, so this is an easy way to accomplish that.

    The 034 insert bends. Go with the BFI stage 1 insert. Until you stiffen up the dog bone short shift and won't be as responsive IMO

    Foot on brake? If manual, clutch in all the way? I remember after installing a clutch stop I was having intermittent starting issues until I adjusted the bolt on the backside of the clutch stop.

    Where do I find one of these?

    A piece of my headlights went missing. It's no wonder I had such bad condensation. This rubber boot covers a hole. I believe it acts as a vent. I can't find a part number for it.

    When I had a warranty issue the service manager called me and said when VW scans this car are they going to find any rogue software? I had none so I was OK, but they did advise me to remove my intake just in case. You guys need to know your rights. Research the Magnuson Moss warranty act.

    I had my headlights swapped while I was away on vacation. They were also doing a radar upgrade. The mechanic never plugged the fog lights back in after reinstalling the bumper. If you want something done right do it yourself.
