    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Threw on another spare set of wheels I have lying around for fun, enkei ts-9 18x8.5 +45. Do love the look of these and relatively light for the price, but FI have bent them to hell on the terrible highways I commute on, also acquired some Hoosiers at no cost from a buddy, 245/35 and 275/35. May...

    Ceramic Pro

    +1 for a fellow professional that knows a thing or two regarding maintenance. Coatings are great when the prep work is done well and the expectation of the customer is set correctly. Maintenance is key. Most people want a set and forget option, and unfortunately if you drive your car like a...

    Golf MK7 2018 1.8 TSI Exhaust Modification Removed Secondary Cat

    I’m aware, hence my statement assuming you meant the rear section. Some nice work there sir. No offense intended. My mistake on OP DP post. I make my living working on cars as well, albeit with some funny looking Golf’s :)

    Golf MK7 2018 1.8 TSI Exhaust Modification Removed Secondary Cat

    If referring to the pic OP attached with the component circled in red, that is in fact a secondary cat, but I assume you’re referring to the rear box where he had it cut and replaced with a Y. PSA, if anyone removes a 🐈, or both from their car with no intention to re install ever, don’t just...

    Water spots from hell

    Also- using anything to increase the beading will actually create worse spotting. The idea is, whatever water is already hitting your paint causing the spotting is just going to increase the issue if you are using a product that holds larger beads of water. The larger the bead, the more calcium...

    Water spots from hell

    Use shine supply flat top with a MF pad, will need to be followed by a finer polish and pad combo as the flat top is aggressive and will leave haze. Also, if you can, after the first round of compounding, heat cycle the paint- let it bake in the sun or under a heat lamp to roughly 130-140°F...

    Golf R vs. GTI seats

    I have 7.5 R front and rear seats swapped into my 2017 mk7 Golf 1.8 hatch- long story but essentially my buddy had acquired the R seats from a 7.5 that was another buddy’s R that was undergoing an RS3 swap. I was supposed to get the GTI seats, and the GTI was getting the R seats. Because mine...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Lol, it was a sarcastic joke about my oversight that I need a 3 inch -> 60mm collector for my 1.8 cat back. Fortunately I did think to order the sealing rings. The dp came off a GTI, which came with a 3”-65mm collector. It’s leaking because It was 2am and I stubbornly refuse to put the stock pay...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Is this a test? Trying to see if I will take you up on the free therapy and prove that I do care what people think? Haha, I don’t mind criticism and see your point, however, don’t you think it’s a bit early to tell me all about my persona? I mean, we just met two posts ago after all. You’re on...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I could care less about the weld. My point is to show that I didn’t feel the need to post about me getting it all for free initially. I would be an idiot if I let a downpipe from unitonic like that slide if I had paid retail. Does it matter what people on the golf forum think of Me? No… but I’d...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    LMAO, the joke is on everyone that thinks I care about the ugly weld. The running joke of people that know this car is the budget beater. The DP, along with almost new IS20, mint R front and rear seats, and OEM VW hatch spoiler were all literally given to me by a friend. I have cool friends...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    The car is on Michelin PS4 and KW variant 3 coilovers- which I have spent a good amount of time adjusting to my ideal setting. I was going to say it was relatively calm at 150, I couldn’t believe it. Also installed the Uni 3” catted DP I’ve had lying around for a while. Finally a chance to get...

    It's the subtle cosmetic mods I like... POST YOURS

    Al unfortunately, I’m too impatient to actually take photos when I’m doing most things with the car, so I don’t really have a good progress log, so to speak. I pretty much bought this car with the intention of having a very good daily driver and in the past I’ve always ruined that when I overly...

    It's the subtle cosmetic mods I like... POST YOURS

    100% my feelings! I’ve never been one for look at me, I’ll change 100 dumb things to make myself happy that probably nobody except forum dwellers like us will notice. I love the look and color scheme of your car, the right amount of silver and red to offset the grey. Damn you though, because...

    Show us your MK7

    VMR V701 18x8.5 +35 with silver Audi caps. Bought them for my S4 11 years ago and think the golf wears them 10x better, and have wanted some proper wheels for the s4 for a while now so I’ve been playing around with swapping them on and off. They’ll be there for good when my b5 wheels arrive...

    I blew my engine, here's some info about it

    I had a little encounter with a scat pack charger on the highway… during the heat wave a month or two back. It was 105°F ambient and I told myself no, but I couldn’t help myself, and it started messing around with him. Long story short, I was in almost a full boost for about 10 miles on the...

    If you are willing to spend a little extra $$….and know the right people, you can “legally” drive your golf with a 1200hp DAZA swap
