Thinking about relocating from Chicago to anywhere in AZ by fall this year. Probably Sun City, northern Phoenix or Mesa area. My GTI is black. Will i die in the mid August oven?


Late June, all of July/August, and early September...yes. Make sure those windows are tinted! Seriously though, I’ve seen a lot of black cars here but I got a white for that reason.

Yeah if it happens i'll probably be getting the car wrapped for just trading up for an 18 R in white.

Unless you are a senior citizen, stay far away from Sun City. And North Phoenix over Mesa any day if you have to pick between those two.

LOL im 26 but i might as well be 70. I saw all the golf courses in Sun City and knew it would be old person central. Perfect for me! I Gave up all the partying and loud music a few years back to focus on creating a career and doing something in life. It's because of those smart decisions that i am not financially and professionally able to relocate across the country.

So what i'm saying is: I don't like noisy neighbors. I don't want to listen to peoples parties all night. I want to move to Arizona, do IT work and mountain bike every day.

What are some other good spots? I was in Scottsdale last November, but obviously way too primo for my at this point in life. Didn't get the chance to do much exploring, but planning on heading back in the spring to visit some towns and check out real estate

It will be bad but, all cars are ovens out here, regardless of color.

Figured. I'm starting to think that when the day comes i'll just try to private sell and pickup a slightly used mk7.5 in white-silver. Should help with the dust showing also.

That it will. It rained a little today and dirtied everything up. I swear, it rains dirt out here.

is Tucson safe to live in? if not, which area is safest to live in? going graduate school within few months
Yes, it is. Check crime stats online. Lots of student rental housing. The Sonoran Desert is extraordinary.

Just got Indy 500's installed today and I think the time is coming to start seriously considering some springs. Thinking VWR... Any highly recommended shops to install?

I'm wondering this as well, I'm not sure if I should get VWR or H&R's

I have vwr on my mk7 and I like them, ride good and lowered just enough, they are very easy to install

Even with these shitty roads in the east valley? Even stock I feel all the bumps and holes .. But I'll most likely take your word on it. I'm saving up currently for Pilot SS and some ampliforms

Anybody in AZ have Eibach Pro Springs? Really want to lower the car just worried about killing the ride quality. I'm really doing it for mainly the aesthetics but the increased handling is a plus. I don't want to go too low and have to worry about bottoming out either. I have read pages and pages of reviews and I have learned that asking about springs for these cars is about the same can of worms as asking what is the best oil out there.
