Naw…don’t care

Plugs and DSG svc would be hard, but not a bad suggestion. I’m throwing Ruth plugs in as soon as I get home anyways though….keeping new oem as backup

This…. Totally me

Whoa…. Never thought of this. I’ll text them right now

good thing is that I have a local vW club member who works there who is watching over it….lol…. Just like day care

are they going to light your car on fire?

Got a quote from APTuning to get the South Bend Stage 3 Daily kit done, as well as mounts and clutch delay valve delete. Ordered the BFI engine/trans mounts from USP, once I have those in hand it's getting scheduled to get the clutch done, I've done a number of mk4 clutches in the past but for once it makes more sense to just have a shop do it and use the time for other things -- midlife is a weird time. But I think with that all done, I'll have the GTI of my dreams, and be happy for a while. Very excited. I know this isn't quite in the spirit of the thread, but I'm excited and just wanted to say something.

Great choice - I love mine.

You won't be happy for a while - you'll stumble across some thread on this forum that will make you go "Hmmm..."; next thing you know you are ordering a hybrid turbo and fueling. It happens to all of us man - I keep saying it, but this place is a bad place man.

Sir I can't think of one person, especially not any dog owners, that this has happened to lately. Come on now...

This whole place has been incredibly dangerous to my wallet. I was ecstatic to finally get a GTI, and then it became a matter of 'What can I add to really make it what I always dreamed of'?

But I'm inclined to think the 19 S was the way to go, I didn't think I cared all that much about the PP until I saw how common it was for folks to want to swap for the upgraded brakes, the LSD is delightful, and I always wanted the plaid seats. All around, it's such a fun car to drive, it puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. And the community here is great, nobody seems to go out of their way to be a jerk and there's so much good information. Not sure if it's because there's a more mature crowd here (being that it's a newer vehicle, I come from mk4s), or if it's just luck of the draw, but either way it's appreciated.

I could gush for days on end about the experience overall. But having my attainable dream car has been an awesome experience, and everyone I've interacted with because of it only sweetens things.

Yeah, I own a PP and non-PP mk7, there's definitely a difference when you start pushing the car hard.

Mk7 forum is how NASIOC used to be before used WRX's got cheap enough to buy that the place filled up with 19 year olds asking which blowoff valve added the most hp 50 times a day.

I joined in 02, when I bought my first Subaru, but I had autocross and track friends that were already into Subarus and had GC's that were full JDM EJ207 drive train swapped, with TD05's, so they were a wealth of info.
