I've been in the area for a while but I'm picking up a 19 GTI Autobahn next week. Hope to meet some of you guys in the future.

There's a show at the St Augustine car museum and Fixxfest at FIRM this weekend.

Got the car. Does anybody have an AWE track/tour, or Borla exhaust on their GTI? Would love to hear it in person before I pull the trigger.

Hit up Luis Rios on the Jaxdubs Facebook page, he has the AWE Race with a DP.

Bringing this thread back from the dead. Can't stand facebook so I'll ask here; What's a reputable shop around Jacksonville (the further north the better)? Would like to see about getting lowering springs installed. Perfectly capable of doing them myself but I just don't want to deal with it.

How’s the new whip? Careful, @GTIfan99 will have you running that thing on the track in no time 😆

Thanks!

I'm loving the car. So far I've done an APR pex intake, 18x8.5 konig ampliforms with some indy500 tires and of course OBDeleven.

Honestly it probably wouldn't take much convincing to get me on the track. I used to track a 370z that I had some years back and it was the most fun I've ever had with a car. My only hesitation is that it's my daily driver and I wasn't planning on getting another car.

So far, both my 2018 and 2019 have stood up to autocross and tracking fine, you just have to show some mechanical sympathy for the car and back off on track when oil temps get too high. I've done a pretty mild, but effective build that hasn't given up much in terms of daily driveability. Feb 26th is the next autocross and the spring Daytona track day have been released. Let me know if you're interested.
