    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Took it to Mt. Pleasant SC Cars and Coffee. Afterwards took it home and washed and waxed it. I used the wax I use on my boat: It has PTEF (Teflon) in it.

    Movie and TV Recommendations

    Go see "Everywhere Everything All at the same time". I think the big screen in a theater works with all action, slow motion, science fiction, fantasy, martial arts fighting and strange fingers.

    I used electric in the past but changed to a multiblade razor years ago. The result with the razor has been better for me.

    Autocross tire pressure help

    That's what I did at SC SCCA this weekend. I see so many other people adjusting tire pressure between laps. Is softer better for traction? I am running Michelin PS4 on stock wheels on my 2017.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    It was a lot of fun. The pace pick up truck was generous because we were told that max speed was to be 70 MPH but he went faster than that. So by lagging behind a little (no passing) I could accelerate all I wanted out of the banked turns. I got more brave as we went along and was able to reach...
