    Official Carbon Steel Metallic GTI / Golf Thread

    Just finished doing all 4 corners for brakes and put on a mint set of used Prets that I was lucky to find. Cell phone pics don’t do it justice! The stance is perfect. (Eibach prokit springs, 10mm spacer front, 15mm spacer rear)

    OEM 19inch Pretoria on MK7 GTI

    10mm front and 15mm back. Gives the exact same poke as 15mm front and 20mm back (ECS flush kit) with Austin’s.

    Oil change discrepancy

    Yes mine says the same. 6 quarts = 5.7 litres. It seems close enough that it’s probably not a big deal. I’ve never seen this on any of my other cars that I’ve owned so I thought maybe it was a “GTI-ism” that I wasn’t aware of.

    Oil change discrepancy

    Just completed my oil change and the level was reading a bit off afterwards. I wanted to get as much old oil out as possible so I let it drain for a good 45 minutes while I had lunch and took the time to syringe out the oil that pools in the filter housing bottom. I filled it with 5.7 litres as...

    Hey Clem, I ended up finding a caliper tool on amazon for $19 so I grabbed it. Thanks for the offer though! Did you notice any difference going to a high flow filter? ( I believe you have the block off plate too). I’m Unitronic stage 1 on completely stock intake still and trying to decide which...

    ECS rotors?

    Well as I dig deeper into my research more and more signs are pointing to going with blank rotors. It seems like it might not be worth it to spend a bunch of extra money on drilled rotors that provide no extra benefit and my be prone to cracking or causing noise, which kills me a little bit...

    ECS rotors?

    I’m not a super aggressive driver, just daily driving with the odd spirited moment. Super wet winters where I live and I’m wanting an “upgraded” look, so sounds like drilled only might be the way to go for me. Thanks for all the input so far!

    ECS rotors?

    Those look great! (and expensive). You can really feel the slots under braking? That seems like a pretty obvious major design flaw no?

    Eibach Pro-Kit Lowering Springs Review | '17 GTI SE

    I have the Eibach pro kits as well and I can second that the drop is perfect and ride is very slightly more harsh but very livable for daily driving, especially with the DCC. After over a year I'm still very happy with them.

    ECS rotors?

    Almost time to do brakes on my 2015 PP. Looking to go for slotted or drilled rotors (mostly for looks tbh) and want good quality without spending a fortune. Anybody have any experience with these ECS rotors? I have their flush kit spacers on the car now and I'm happy with the quality of those...

    This rattle will be the death of me...

    This rattle will be the death of me...SOLVED! (hopefully) Been fighting to find the source of a rattle for months now. So far I’ve lost all the battles but I’m determined to win the war. I first went to the googles and found the great post on the A pillar rattle and how-to fix. Got that all...

    19" wheels...would you do it again?

    Looking for input from anyone running 19" wheels... I am looking for a second set of wheels for my GTI and never really had 19's on my radar, but a really good deal has popped up locally on a set of VMR V710FF 19" I know the biggest issue with going 19" is usually the weight, but these flow...

    Unfortunately my wife introduced 2 of our rims to the curb yesterday, so I'm looking for 2 austins to replace them. Preferably in good condition with no rash. I live in Vancouver, Canada but have a shipping box in Blaine, WA. Thanks!
