You heel toe on a DSG?
I left foot brake all the time. It helps smooth out some downshifts. I would be on the gas slightly and depress the brake and downshift to keep it smooth.

RS3 coil packs and denso plugs. And also the Aggressiv carbon fiber rear diffuser. I'm a little on the fence with the look of the diffuser. It looks a bit more bulky than I was expecting. Thoughts?

Thanks! I think it will grow on me more once I get the dark cherry dynamic tail lights on and probably remove the APR badging.

Installed a Eurocode rear chassis brace. When I have time I’m going to install the front chassis brace.
Going to go on a test drive to see if I can feel an improvement. Have heard good things about it

How much drilling is required?

First road trip for my 2-year-old GTI this weekend (round-trip from Orange County, CA to Las Vegas). Picked up an air drag mod on the way back to OC today. Was surrounded, and this thing tumbled towards the car in front of me and ended up right in the middle of our lane for me to hit.

Luckily the softer "branches" side hit the front grills and got lodged in there. The side facing forward is much more solid and could've caused more damage than the fine scratches I ended up getting.

Trip info in the infotainment system is from the return trip with JB4 set to map 1 while running 91 octane. Passed through 3 mountains iirc. From my experience, the displayed gas mileage is about 2-3% higher than actual. The trip to Vegas was 4 hours flat with the infotainment displaying 28.4 mpg, but I forgot to take a pic of it.

No drilling. Uses existing mounts. If there was drilling involved I wouldn’t have gotten one lol

Tested the true ability of the FDL in wet conditions. It performs pretty darn good. Still under-steered like a bitch into the other lane, but performed far better than a mechanical LSD does in the same situation. Even better than a RWD LSD in the situation I forced it into.

That Eurocode "rear chassis brace" is useless compared to the ones that bolt under the car, or the full frame chassis brace that goes in the trunk. For $50 its okay, but any more and you might as well buy an intake for all the benefit it provides. Don't mean to hate, but really now... if you can do the same thing by using a piece of rebar..... $10 for a rebar pole, and $20 for the fittings to install it.... If you are crafty and have a welder the cost would be even less. As far as improving performance, a stiffer RSB would do far far more.
