    Another case of peeling sunroof trim clearcoat

    Might just need to remove all clear coat. Good news might be it does not look thick.

    Another case of peeling sunroof trim clearcoat

    Not an easy fix. I have the issue which I blame on thin clear coat in this location. Why peeling might be due to temp change as on cooler days you can see the glue lines under this piece so the area peeling does not have glue under it. Talked to a paint shop and they really would not commit to...

    Golf glovebox repair

    Try ECS Tuning. They have some spare parts for the glove box. I purchased the small rubber bumpers once. I think they even list entire box for sale.

    TPMS and new wheels

    No TPMS sensors on Golf. When changing or setting air pressure, you go into main panel and reset the tire pressure system. If you get new wheels or tires, reset the same system. VW used speed rotation to determine if the tires circumference has changed to alert on pressure. Less pressure smaller...

    My GTI Clubsport YouTube channel (shameless self promotion)

    Thanks. Yes, one would think the CSS would be beefed up more for the 13 mile track run it was designed for. Would be interesting to know. Thanks again.

    Best All season tires?

    Buy wall mount tire rack from Tirerack and bolt to the wall. You can keep them well off the floor. Doable but land lord might not like the big bolt holes. But what a cool apartment. Add Swisstrax floor and turn it into a Garage Apt.

    Replicate, Clusport Wheel bearing/housing on your site, are they for use only with Clubsport front spindles or do they also fit standard GTI spindles? What is different on the Clubsport bearing housing if they can be used with normal GTI parts. Thanks for offering Clubsport OE items.

    Want a bit more sound with CSS Muffler

    Can try delete, but if drone, then try vibrant resonator in place. Have heard downpipe with CSS exhaust will drone. Not sure if vibrant would help enough with this. Drive a little while (month) then decide. After some miles the CSS exhaust will change a little. If not tuned, a stage 1 tune...

    Another case of peeling sunroof trim clearcoat

    Thanks for part info. Does anyone know for sure how this is attached? Info I have is that the part is glued and hand to be forced loose and then scrapped to remove glue. Has anyone had this work performed or changed the part to fix this issue? Any details to share. Also, anyone who has had it...

    Ebay spoiler question! (name and product review)

    I have only seen on Ali-Express. So likely a China maker. Just something one must try. Look for good supplier rating, look at store items and if they have many GTI items, might be a safe buy. There is some risk, but I would buy with the plan to not return. I have never tried to return or...

    Diggs24 Build Thread - "Tapioca XL"

    Reminds me of when I put, then new, Bridgestone RE11's and backing out the driveway rocks were sticking to the tires. I thought, what have I done with summer tires! But having removed the tire stickers the adhesive that was left was picking up rocks. After a mile it ran normal. My "Oh Shit" moment.

    Eibach Sportline Springs: ...

    Still kicking. I sent you a PM to the one you sent with info. I do have DCC and at 75,000, still going well on Eibach Prokit. Even the 1 inch drop changes how you drive some. Pot holes and man hole covers are never a friend. I find the stock 18" Austin wheels not very good for bad roads. My...

    Did the GTI Clubsport S come with a strut bar?

    From my understanding the rear so called brace and net was mainly a cargo containment bar and net for every day use. Items I read did not suggest this rear strut bar was the best design if strength was the goal.

    Replacement OEM leather seat skins

    Katzkins!!!!!!!! Good time to upgrade and replace the entire interior. On their site they do not list the GTI only Gulf but prior on site they had picks of GTI's so might be good to ask. Good seat replacements and you can custom design. I know you can get OE replacements as my driver side was...
