Oh if they're direct replacements, they should be coming assembled.

But even if they don't, instructions are clear enough that a 6 year old with some patience could do it.
awesome...lol....thanks!

Still rocking that ST40? How is it?

ST40 is gone, unfortunately. Took it off the GTI when I sold that one, and now am waiting for a 355mm one to pop up in the classifieds.

Loved it though, no complaints. Porterfield R4S pads were also quite nice.

I know I posted up earlier in this thread about my brake pedal being loose/crunchy ever since I had my fluid flushed earlier this summer. Initial theory was air in the lines but I had them re-bleed it and do the two-man procedure but it still feels a bit janky to me. Starting to think it might just be in my head, anyone able to advise on whether this seems normal or not? At the top of the pedal travel, it's not smooth. There's some looseness/play for about a half an inch of movement downward, and then a bump before it smoothes out. Coming back up is the same kind of looseness, and then it's almost like crunchy as it comes back to the top. Bit hard to describe and even harder to show but some videos if it's helpful at all:

Need to start gathering replacement pads/rotors for my TT RS front bbk.......anyone have experience with Paragon? They offer 2 piece floating for 1150

or Girodisc.....they offer same type of floating for about the same.
Girodisc is good stuff. Cheap for being made in the US.
I've looked at Paragon but I suspect their castings are made in the same chinese factory as 034's rotors. For the $50 difference I'd go girodisc without a thought.
If you're interested I might be selling my 370mm girodiscs.

Hello team...

Seat Leon mk3 1.8 owner, stock turbo IS12 and stage2 100oct tune. Soon I'll upgrade it with IS38. I use stock coils (with RS7 plugs). Do I need to upgrade them? what are your suggestions?
Thank you...

Since I replaced the antenna today the headliner got bent. Is this fixable when I take it to get to the upholestry shop? Any info on this?
I believe a new headliner frame from VW is $2000. Thanks in advance.

1234YF….. what the….. why in the world do I have to take this to a body shop for AC work?? Thanks VW

edit...it's the type of freon in '18 models that small indie shops can't touch because of the specific machine used
