    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Nope, no interference with the stock tips. The stock tips will just appear to be further under the car (in the direction towards the front of the vehicle) than they do with the stock valence. Edit: I made a picture highlighting where the stock pipe ends, and maybe that helps explain. (see the...

    Kind of over it

    You can also put your jackstands on the front subframe after jacking from the side point, if the job you're doing is okay with that

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I think you could get away with the tips staying stock, but to be honest I didnt try it as I ground off the welds on my stock tips while installing the diffuser. (gives you more space to work with the diffuser off and the exhaust just unbolted at the back 2 hangers) The burger tips on my car...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I bought the kit and I recommend it https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-european-volkswagen-audi-parts/tcr-rear-diffuser-kit/5g6807568ag041kt/ Really easy, I jacked up the car for convenience but you dont really need to per se. I detailed the process here...

    Let's Talk about Window Tint

    All I know is I saw my car and the dozen or so others at the shop I used (unique car care, @uniquecacare insta) and there wasn't a bubble in sight.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Diffuser is plug and play if you get kit from ecs with the little blocks. I have the blackout plates as well but I have decided if I want to install or not. They don't seem necessary. This is a genuine oettinger spoiler, purchased from the dealer and painted by one of the top autobodies in the...

    Intercooler performance

    Pressure is pressure. In this case P*V = T If you have a bigger turbo running higher pressure then you have higher temps. My results above with a 8f over ambient delta with my is20 are not comparable to the is38 tigeo posted.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Thanks uberdot! I can truly appreciate the car now. The color of the LEDs is definitely red in person, chalk it up to poor white balance from my phone. I will grab some pictures with the lights off tomorrow. They look good off, not just black. I bought the smoke because I figured I...

    2021 GTI SE ordered!

    If resale is a thing you have to think that cornflower is a better choice, I really like both colors.

    2021 GTI SE ordered!

    The q5 has the b cycle engine, pretty different from ours in practice. I also have a b9 q5 and it's a great car, love the dsg and the design of the car overall. It's the best of it's generation in midsize SUV's.

    MK7.5 OEM LED Tails

    The harness seems to be working okay but could you point me to where I might read what I need to repin? The yellow wire between the inner and outer is hooked up just not routed under the panels.

    MK7.5 OEM LED Tails

    Tried to change the value on 27 to what he posted, while it didnt break anything it also didnt enable the amber LED signals. Earlier today i tried to code everything the the BEC coding instructions and turn signals and brake lights stopped functioning entirely - luckily I was able to revert...

    MK7.5 OEM LED Tails

    The lights came with a harness (needed in order to adapt to the LED plugs), and everything is hooked up - I just didnt fish the little yellow wire through the trim yet because i wanted to get everything working before going through that effort. Sadly these lights have no instructions and the...

    MK7.5 OEM LED Tails

    So after reading through some 200 pages of this thread and still not finding the coding answer I need, I suppose I will ask. I have the AKD aliexpress tail lights - actually fitting pretty wall after I got some help with the install in another thread. The dynamic turn signals (amber) are not...

    Big Turbo GTI v. R Upgrade

    Did you not read the part that I owned my 15 R for 45k miles? Its straight up not as fun to drive when moving... the extra 300lbs and the open differentials kill it.
