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 😁

Thanks! I wanted to get it in Storm Grey originally, but they were OOS. The copper is really growing on me, however.
These are better.

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

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.
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.
