    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Today I took out my rear pads because I noticed a squeak coming from the rear and was a bit surprised to see the condition of the pads. Is this okay to continue to run? They are a bit rough?

    2018 GTI SE: How would you mod with $5k? $10k? $15k?

    At what mileage do you consider an IHI is38 to be at the “end of its life?” My is38 is EQT custom tuned for 93 on my 2019 GTI. I’d much rather replace a tired turbo, than have it blow and shoot tiny pieces of metal through my IC and have to deal with that headache/anxiety of the debris making...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Which LPFP did you go with? There are some pretty big price differences between the 7 and 7.5 pumps, but I have no idea why they wouldn't be cross-compatible.... The OEM but the LPFP for my 17 GTI is about 400 bucks on FCP Euro, but the OEM pump for 7.5 models is $140 from ShopDap and is a...

    Took out the plugs just to take a peek. What's up with the specks on the plug on the left? The left is cylinder 1 and the right is cylinder 4. Two and three looked like the plug on the right as well with no specks.
