    Coilover noises

    Yeah, I can have the fronts off in like 30 mins aside from set up time (raising car, getting tools prepared, remove wheels, etc.). I just take off the three LCA nuts and bust the axle bolt free. The entire assembly comes out in one piece. WAY easier, if you ask me. Just need to make sure you've...

    Coilover noises

    I wouldn't have been as patient as you. Would have reported to my credit card company and let them handle it. They would have credited my money the same day. I've been thinking about this thread from time to time. Felt really bad that you went through this. I know how laborsome suspension work...

    OIL TEMP GOING UP VERY QUICK

    You're still doing it. YOU JUST KEEP TALKING IN ALL CAPS. IT'S HILLARIOUS. You haven't done anything wrong, my dude. All good. It's just funny.

    OIL TEMP GOING UP VERY QUICK

    Had to come back and read this again. The funniest sh!t I've seen here in awhile.

    NHTSA Investigation into VW, Audi vehicles for fuel leaks

    My MK7.5 was the most reliable car I've ever owned, and I drove it good. I had one thing happen - water pump housing, which is a known thing that VW gladly replaced for free.

    Boost Restrictions?

    I'd check out UM. Just saying.

    Part# for a mystery part

    The parts schematics for VWs have always been a little confusing. Each of the "aftermarket" OEM parts distributors use the same diagrams, but the parts are broken down oddly. Many times I'll find parts on the diagram as part of a complete system with no number or information, only to find them...

    What is the most stealth hitch?

    Does it need to be? I mean, that’s like asking the same question for any aftermarket part. I’m not saying that safety isn’t paramount, but the Stealth Hitch mounts up to the factory location with a pretty hefty square steel bar attached to it. And those welds look pretty good. For all we know...

    What is the most stealth hitch?

    The Stealth Hitch is a crash bar. It's replaces the factory crash bar with itself as a replacement crash bar. Or at least that's what I thought?

    Tire Reccomendations

    I get it, was just making a point. I'd wager less than 1% of members here actually track their car. The difference between the AS4 & PS4 is marginal. With the AS4, you get a more versatile tire with a better warranty for less money, and the performance loss on the street can't be detected. It's...

    Tire Reccomendations

    How cold do your winters get? Do you plan on ever taking the car on a trip anywhere in cold climates or where it snows? You really shouldn't drive summers in temps below about 45 degrees. Definitely nothing in the 30s, especially if the car has been sitting overnight or if there is potential...

    Bought a 2019 Golf R MK 7.5

    What trim GTI? I'm wondering what kind of bulbs they are. Shouldn't be an issue with LEDs.

    Bought a 2019 Golf R MK 7.5

    So? You get the car? Figure out the service records?

    Valve wont close on my exhaust

    You're right, my post left some assumptions there. What I should have said was - "You may want to try with the ignition in the accessory position" The ignition switch has three different positions - 1. completely off, 2. accessory mode, 3. engine systems running Pressing the start/stop button...

    Valve wont close on my exhaust

    The spring orientation doesn’t matter. The system is configured to spin the valve motors after they’ve been disconnected, and the spring is designed to snap into place. You can literally just slap the valve motor on without paying attention to the position. This happened to me as well. I had a...

    Too much oil used ?

    My golf never consumed a drop of oil. My Tiguan eats more than a qt. between changes. There are a multitude of factors. Half a quart over 6k miles is well within tolerance, but there are engines that consume zero oil. VW recommends checking the oil each time you fuel up.

    Bought a 2019 Golf R MK 7.5

    VW switched from Castrol to Mobile 1 awhile back. For MK7.5s, specifically, the filter is not changed on the DSG service. It's not included in the service manual, and the dealerships don't change them. You CAN change the filter, but you don't have to. The filters also cost north of a hundred...

    Bought a 2019 Golf R MK 7.5

    If I were you, I'd just do all of the fluids, including brakes. Haldex isn't too bad, but the DSG service can be expensive.

    Timing chain @ 65K? Why?

    DSG Farts on mk 7.5 R - 7 speed

    You need to be hitting it pretty hard to hear it. Also, use manual mode instead of letting the car shift on its own. Take first gear to the top of the rev range and shift using the paddle. You should hear a booming thump if you have a stock exhaust. If you really want to hear them, get an...
