    That makes too much sense, thank you!

    Helix Soundbox Upgrade Information Post!

    Edit: Learned something interesting with Spotify... I reset my storage/cache so all my audio settings were reset. Some combination of "auto" streaming quality and volume normalization will ruin the audio experience. Little to no sub bass, overall thin and more harsh audio coming through the...

    Helix Soundbox Upgrade Information Post!

    Hey everyone, been rocking mine for almost two years now. Just ran into an interesting scenario... I noticed on my morning commute (especially in the cold weather) the soundbox isn't active. Somewhere along the ride I'm feeling the increased bass and clearer soundstage. Not certain why that...

    Clutch Replacement Labor Hours

    By VW? I got quoted $1700 by mine. I guess they really don't wanna do it.

    Eqt burble tune

    That's my understanding (6MT instead of DSG)... it has to be in proper Sport mode.

    Yeahhh I see you. DIB is just ol' reliable. I feel like most other colors here are love/hate.

    Post your dark iron blue GTI

    looking forward to it... but when to pull the trigger, i don't know. oh, back on topic i wanted to know - was DIB anyone's first color choice? or did it grow on them? my first choice would have been GFG, second choice Black (i like black on basically everything), but the used market was...

    Post your dark iron blue GTI

    been doing a bit of research between here and the gti subreddit. no reports of rubbing with daily driving except the occasional deep pothole - removing the fender screw and folding the inner lip should remedy that completely.

    Post your dark iron blue GTI

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to contribute mine. First car purchase, almost 20 years in the making. Bought it new in Nov 2020, haven't stopped smiling since. Added 35% tint all around, ShopDAP short shifter, Ed's Rep headlights, nice tame Magnaflow exhaust. Leaning towards bronze Ampliforms on...

    Eqt burble tune

    Nice, that answers my other question then. No pops in custom mode with sport throttle / drivetrain.

    Eqt burble tune

    Thanks for the insight! Did you reflash to remove the burbles, or have any idea how much it would cost?

    Eqt burble tune

    Question for manual EQT drivers... does the "burbles in sport mode" option only apply to the preset sport mode? I use the custom driver setting (engine sound eco, steering normal, front diff sport, drivetrain sport) and wondering if I would get burbles in the custom setting. Also read through...

    Helix Soundbox Upgrade Information Post!

    i had mine done at the dealer (under warranty, didn't tell them how it possibly could've happened) and they replaced the entire switch. probably broke while trying to release the connector because i didn't pay enough attention to the youtube video...

    Helix Soundbox Upgrade Information Post!

    Dang, I don't know why I was expecting they'd cost less 😂 But definitely good to know for a future upgrade. For me it really puts into perspective the value of the soundbox upgrade.

    also glad to hear the speakers and enclosure can handle more subsonic freqs... is there any direct replacement for the helix amp? or will more add-ons be required?

    At what point do the rattles emerge?

    That's exactly what it was! Put a microfiber towel in there for the time being...

    At what point do the rattles emerge?

    Ahhh that's a good point, first sweeping right hand turn on my morning commute I notice it! Music isn't usually playing yet and I'm using a magnaflow exhaust (trying to keep it gentlemanly 😋)

    At what point do the rattles emerge?

    2021 mk7.5 rear passenger side rattles with and without music. sounds like it's the seatbelt vibrating against the plastic pilliar but it has a creaking quality to it. i need someone to sit back there and try to damp it to locate it. drives me nuts if i don't have music going.

    Helix Soundbox Upgrade Information Post!

    Ahh damn there's always time to pull some trim again! Saw stealthgti on YouTube wire it up to his center console which was really neat and tidy. In my case it's just a neat 'party trick' for lack of a better term 😅 and will just run a 10ft cat6 straight through the cabin.
