So was playing around with my cheap borescope and cylinders today, and it looks like one of my pistons has a chip out of it? The walls themselves looked fine. I haven't noticed anything or anything, was just bored. This a cause for concern?

That's unfortunately as high as the resolution gets. I said it was a cheap borescope :(

Seriously though.

All good, or cause for concern?

I don't want you to get the GLI. I want your GTI to be what you expected it to be.

I'm still open to the idea if I found a dealer that would play ball.

What's next for you?



Lol. It's more so just making sure that if the car does stay with me, it's in good health.
Atlas V6 4Mo. B2B parts on order 😂

I would get someone with a professional borescope and also do a compression test.

Compression test was done right before putting in the Vortex, checked out fine.

I was actually doing a compression test at the same time now and killed my battery trying to turn over my car without it starting :ROFLMAO:

I don't want you to get the GLI. I want your GTI to be what you expected it to be.

Oh, trust me. It is. 3rd gear is goddamn amazing. The fact that I can be going 85mph, downshift to 3rd, put my foot down, and it still pulls harder than most cars do while going 50mph... I mean, you were on a 400+ hp hybrid. You know what it's like :ROFLMAO:

I did just notice this though, this is making it hard...

That is the 2021 I was looking at, that has 1,300 miles. The dealers website did have it listed as an Autobahn, not sure why they changed it to an S. It's definitely an Autobahn. Virtual cockpit, 8" MIB screen, ventilated seats, etc... But it was listed at $32,600 and they dropped it $2,700...

I am really against having a black car though...

I know what it's like to an extent minus the exta + 80 HP you have on me.
