    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Rented a 9' cargo van to pick up all my OEM take offs which have been gathering dust at HPA. I may need to get a bigger storage locker. Or stop hoarding them and junk them. Spoke to Marcel a bit about the car. Looking like I may be able to have it back in a few weeks.

    Yeah I think we've talked about this in another thread. My only dealing with him was really negative and took tons of work on my end to get things right, and even then I had to still pay shipping on the return to Malaysia. What a PoS.

    I'd say that it's pretty much the same as OEM. Quite excellent!

    Yes, the very same one DerHase was talking about a while ago. It was purchased many months before all the information about cooling came out but still decided to put it on.

    Something I was also mulling over is paint matching the hood, and leaving the edges of the vents as exposed CF. Maybe when I financially recover from all of this.

    It's OK, it'll look better when it's moving fast.

    The alignment shop snapped some alignment porn while it was there for alignment a week or two ago: https://www.instagram.com/p/C5PZPpdJv4R/ No good shots of the part of the front subframe for the problem spot unfortunately.

    It was definitely something about the front, but memory bad so I'll follow up next time I pop by the shop. The car went off for its final alignment, Seibon hood installed and a few more bits and bobs with the interior. Stoked to see it next week probably. HPA's Dyno buildout getting delayed a...

    I remember reading that as well. I need to take a picture of the exact thing which was pointed out to me next time I am under the car.

    Went by HPA today to bring by my summer tires as it's getting pretty warm a bit early up here. Got a real sweet tour of all the new work on the car: a lot of it doesn't get shown but they performed some minor miracles to get the diffuser and exhaust to mount correctly to the verkline rear...

    Sweet ty! It's the MK7 diffuser. They only made them briefly before ending production due to low demand. This was probably the last new one left anywhere. Had it during in a box for well over a year waiting to be installed.

    More WIP shots for the track prep and build finalization. Still a fairly long list of things to do but pretty happy to see movement on it in the run up to track season. Making way for easy camber adjustment at the top hats.

    Just wait until we're doing shakedown laps at the local track in the coming weeks.

    Got some good action shots of the Verkline install courtesy of @Jonathan_HPA Sounds like zero modifications required w/ the VR550T. MQB ftw.

    Yes, will still be daily driving it. I've beaten out a lot of the comfort with everything prior to this and I prefer a rigid feeling of the car on the road. As for the goals it has certainly evolved. The original intention and goal was a VR6 turbo swapped Golf R track weapon I could drive to...

    The Verkline bits finally come off the shelf and into the car 🎉

    Seb's RSR called Lola

    V4 clubsports are such an incredible set of coils. Totally transformed my ride. The same kind of leap from stock -> KW V3 non-clubsport from the V3.

    Yeah, Martin’s prototype car! He’ll do the swap for EU folk if you ring up HGP to my knowledge as well.
