This happened a couple hours ago. The other person ran a red light. Thank you VW for keeping me and my brother safe.
Today I signed the transfer papers to release my GTI to the insurance co since it has been totaled out.

Unfortunately the selections for GTI's/R's in my area are practically non-existent. Closest used 2019+ autobahn is over 300 miles away. And used 2019 R's are going for almost MSRP when they were new.

I did end up staying within the (extended) family and can say that I am quite happy with my choice. 2020 Audi A3 premium plus Quattro in Cosmos blue. Same engine/7 speed DCT thats in the GTI along with a few goodies like Quattro AWD and the B&O Sound system. Looked at a couple of S3's but the price difference was significant. Also its a lease which means in 3 years I will be able to take a look at the MK8 GTI/R or the redesigned A/S3.

Anyways heres a couple pics:

Bored out of my mind waiting for KungFlu test results. Installed a correct diameter downpipe reducer, but it's a maybe 1-2" too long. Need to find a local GTI Jake to have the catback shortened and adapter tig'd. I still cannot believe how quiet this car is for having 350awhp. Took down a popcorn tune Mk7 GTI with ease. Threw on my winters and gave it a good pre winter detail. Bring on the snow!

I have a buddy in Youngstown, OH if that’s not too far.

No pictures, but installed k&n intake and in cabin filters tonight. For only 8k miles that factory in cabin filter was nasty!! Also, who in there right mind tunes an R to stage 2 with all the goodies and leaves the stock filter in it?!?. Well now she can breath so much better. Can hear the spoolie boy alot better now.

I agree, they're one of the better ones. Not mine though, I just happen to have a set in my garage that belong to a friend, and could borrow it for a day or two instead of putting on a donut.

Will have a new DWS06 put on tomorrow. While I'm not a fan of replacing a single tire at a time, they're still in good enough condition (7/32nds or so) that I can't bring myself to pull a good one off and waste it.

Gratz on the Audi, that model is one of my fav's. Curious to hear your feedback after you drive it for a while.

Installed the WCT pedal spacer a few days ago. First time getting to drive it for an extended time. I'm in a DSG but so far really loving it. Can definitely see it making heel toe easier for manuals

Finally got this installed - very easy as long as you are careful with your centerpunch work. I used the same cobalt bits I purchased for the IC install which made quick work of the body.

Can really tell it's there! just like the front. The car is approaching go-kart qualities and the last piece is good tires, my lightweight wheels (RSE10 18x8.5) and an alignment to zero out the rear toe. I don't plan to do any springs at the moment but I am interested in stiffening the rear spring rate a tad. Maybe Golf R springs.

I would say this is a must-do mod (any of the ones that is raised above the floor, there are a couple options)
