Drove it for the first time yesterday since forging the engine and going big turbo.

Just a day and 30 miles have passed and I already feel that the break in is taking too damn long... :(

Ordered a set of Bilstein B8 to go with the DG springs I have at home. They're on backorder at most places so I had to call around.

Excited to get some PS4S tires for the summer and maybe an AWE track catback too.

In the name of getting us back on track (pun very intended)... Got photos back from our most recent autocross event today! Car is mostly stock (some cosmetic mods, intake/catback/RSB) and on stock tires, but still had a great time autocrossing it. The eLSD is nuts, my first time autocrossing a boosted car as well as first time autocrossing something with not-an open differential. If I were going to be using it regularly for this I'd buy a better set of tires without a doubt, but lordy what fun. It really lives up to the 'dream car' I had in mind when I was young, and makes for a great platform. Definitely takes some getting used to, I'm more accustomed to immediate power so getting into the throttle earlier than I normally would was unusual.

Nonetheless, here's a photo 😁

I love it without the red accents. Looks so much better.

This my set up for my suspension. Amazing set up. No sacrifice in ride & feels like how the GTI should’ve came from factory. I can’t imagine how it would rip in curves with a RSB

I have this exact setup and it's awesome (IMO) for a street driven setup.

Window shopping Bag Riders. I wonder if Air Lift will ever go more than 10% off again for their sales. I didn't bite this last sale cause it was only 10% and the last two sets I bought for my cars I got for 15-20% off.

If you wait for 15-20% off by then the regular price will have gone up. Prices on pretty much everything have been going up since Covid.

Got my wheels on along with some Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's. Tire shop paid me $350 for the winter rubber that came with the RSE12's I got, so all in all, Neuspeed wheels and Firestones. I am $1000CAD out of pocket. I'll take that to the bank any day. I need to wash it this weekend. I'm diggin' the look.

nothing wrong with that! Tires are one of the most individually transformative things when you upgrade stock to UHP AS like AS4/DWS06+ or summers. It’s the very thing connecting the car to the ground. We can all appreciate the value of some fresh rubber.

I just got some DWS that were on clearance because the DWS+ just came out, and put em on my gf’s TDI wagon. Completely transformed the car. I honestly like how it moves more than my Alltrack, despite being heavier and slower. It just eats all inconsistencies in the road while performing every bit as well as I need it to for what it is.

for reference, my AT is on stock suspension with RSB and RSE10’s/AS4’s, and APR Plus. That’s all for performance.

Gf’s 2014 JSW TDI DSG is bone stock on 7 year old struts with 45K miles and honestly, I like that car’s driving dynamic a fair bit more than my Alltrack. And the tires were all it needed.
