i think I might of found the culprit to the leak. Not 100% sure. That plastic piece that was mentioned earlier is secured. A video last night I watched the guy mentioned this part on the hatch. His had the nipple. My shit looks destroy and not in place.

I realized mine was gone just a few days ago. The water would leak onto the parcel shelf when I opened the hatch. I looked at the drain hole and sure enough the rubber piece is missing and the tube is misaligned. You can grab it at the dealer, the part # is 512 827 861 A

Ahhhh...good call on the ratcheting wrenches. I have picked up a set of those since doing the insert last year. I am going to snag a flex head ratchet and some pass through sockets
https://www.mobiledistributorsupply.com/22978-oemtools-12-piece-go-through-socket-set-oem

That's the set of pass-through sockets I have, they also work rather nicely as mini extensions. Ignore the 'compatible with' thing, that's only relevant to the "ring stop" feature of the wrenches. The hex drives are the same size as the socket (so 15mm will have a 15mm hex drive up top), so they're very convenient.

wheel wrap from Aliexpres, looks cool, haven’t driven with it yet though.

Is that a wrap you sew on with a needle.
the red thread looks cool? I put one on another car but I'm afraid of the needle poking the leather of my gti wheel..

It would be hard, it's not a traditional needle they give you. It's pretty dull. The wrap already has stitching in it, you just need to go in and out of the stitching to bring it together. So the needle isn't sharp since it isn't actually piercing anything.

Not Mk7 stuff, but a story worth telling.

This is my dads truck, full resto mod & respray. Anyway, turns out my pointing out it had a pre turbo exhaust leak in pre purchase videos was worse than anticipated.

Yeah, it wasn’t a broken exhaust manifold (common), it was a broken cylinder head.

Soooooo now instead of just swapping on a three piece manifold (expansion joints keep things from snapping off) & a modern Cummins Holset turbo now I’ll be doing ARP studs, head gasket & a new cylinder head.

Maxton design V2 spoiler off Amazon. I had bought a cheap AliE spoiler and that fit like a$$; figured I could at least return this if it didn't fit properly.

2019 Rabbit GTI
Didn't do anything as I sold the GTI back in February. I did come across the rabbit certificate today though and would like to get it to the new owner. Car was sold with around 32k miles and has a couple identifiable mods. I believe it was sold in Tennessee. Has ARM downpipe and intercooler, IE v2 intake, ECS vent boost guage. Unitronic stage 2 ECU and DSG tune. The Passat wheels with Firestone Winterforce 2s should be a giveaway. I searched though several hundred pages on the forum and was unsuccessful in finding it. If anyone know who, please put them in contact with me so I can give them a full mod list and such, I'm sure I'll be back at some point but the GTI just can't do the same things as it's replacement.
