    Mods you're wasting money on...

    :) I was responding to bobbie hotsauce up there, who bumped up this ancient thread. I was 100% anti-TIP lol, felt there was no proof one did anything. I basically have been slightly bored the past few weeks, so got the MST tip+hose. Mostly based on Jeff's flow tests (and it was on sale). I...

    Mods you're wasting money on...

    An upgraded intercooler was the best mod I've done so far, after a stage 1 tune. I used to be anti-TIP but did recently install the MST Performance TIP and silicon hose.

    Intercooler and Downpipe?

    The ECS FMIC rocks. Often on sale for $425. Completely worth it, noticeable difference.

    Flat black mirror caps?

    I swear I've asked a ton of times when I see pics of the TCR caps and everyone always claimed they were the same glossy ones that have been available. Thanks for those pics!! Clearest pics yet to show they are matte/flat.

    MK7 Oil Pressure Gauge

    Wish vw still had a din sized area to fit three gauges above or below the radio. I'd do oil pressure, oil temp, and voltage. Maybe a boost gauge instead of oil temp.

    MK7 owners in the S.C. upstate ?

    What's the latest version of that tune? I got the same tune last June, it's version 2.0.1. It's been 10,000 miles so far and I think it's been great. It's even better now with a FMIC installed. First 90 degree day here today in the Midlands.

    Buy now or wait for Mk8? Sarah reviews the 2020 GTI S

    She did pretty good work on an MR2 and an MK1 Audi TT. If you can get past the fact that she used to be a he, it's a good automotive channel.

    armaspeed alloy cold air intake

    Looks like a BAD knock-off of the MST intake. I'd get the new MST intake over that one.

    Too much oil

    IF you were halfway down, and actually added "1 pint" as you say - that's half a quart. You're fine lol.

    Weird vibration at 45mph and 75+ mph

    How many miles? Might be an inner CV joint or axle issue.

    Where are the best deals for wheels?

    I say figure out exactly what wheels you want before you start looking for "good deals". There are a lot of shitty wheels out there.

    ECS MK7 GTI/Golf R Intercooler Upgrades!

    FYI: your instructions for the FMIC has a few issues - step 12 lists a 19mm socket for the bolts - but my 2016 GTI had 16mm bolts. - my kit included a small cable clip, but the instructions never say where exactly to use it.
