Looking for a new or used local exhaust preferably APR like below. With the MK8 rolling out somebody's trading up out there!

APR CATBACK EXHAUST SYSTEM - MK7.5 GOLF R # CBK0017​

If all I want currently is to lower my car, are springs my best option compared to coilovers? I’d like some stiffness but not sure that I want to spend the money now.

Just springs on stock struts = pre-maturely blown struts.

Ever seen those shitty Honda civic driving down the highway with the Honda bounce?

The springs will lower the car and will work, for a bit, but then you're going to have to replace the struts anyways. Do it right the first time rather than doing it twice.

^ Like he said. I've used GRD for over three years without issues.

anyone in west/north burbs (i'm in morton grove) with an obdeleven i can use for a quick tweak - adaptive lane tracking? Mine crapped out few years ago which i used on the gti - this tweak is for the family vehicle which will see some decent highway usage in the coming days. Please PM if someone is out there. Thanks!
