What did you do to your mk7 today?

That sounds about right, haha. Is that limit electronic, gearing, or power? I'm tuned so close-r to the 184HP models.

I don't know why I'm asking... maybe I'll push it to 110 one day, but probably not 🤷‍♂️.
For a long time 1.6TDIs have been limited to 199kph to keep a distance to the 2.0TDIs. To my knowledge the GTD w/ 184hp is rated at 230kph.
Today I drove north on the A31, 150km w/ no speed limit. Cruise control set to 200kph in the company car, very slowly I got passed by a 1.6TDI MK7. TDIs get used over here 😂

CSS muffler?
Yep. I met @GTI Jake today and had him fix my hacked together setup with a stock catback I got from a member here + a new CSS muffler. Add me to the list as another happy Baun Performance customer. Jake's a really cool guy and did quality work. 🤘

Liking the CSS muffler so far. It's pretty quiet and stock sounding on the interior in normal driving, but puts out a surprisingly higher volume when you get on it. Not obnoxiously loud, but louder than you expect for how tame it is under light throttle. Hoping the tone will deepen as it breaks in.

HAHA!

My wife’s comment “it looks like he’s a tornado chaser” 😂
Coincidentally, I had someone approach me at a grocery store to ask about my car. She was getting a Jim Cantore vibe from me and was wondering if I had come to town track a weather event. It was beautiful outside and the forecast was great. It's funny how people can jump to conclusions. Oddly enough, I am looking into affiliating with SkyWarn. :cool:

Unfucked a big oops with my winter tires. Ordered 245/35/19 Pilot Alpin PA4 and ended up being wider and deeper tread by a mile than what could fit:

Surprisingly I could still drive and turn full lock, just no bumps at more than a crawl.

Dropped to 225/35/19 and much much better

I picked up a friggin nail on the way back from work and I’m now suffering from the fact that I don’t have a full size spare….. looks like I’ll be sitting on discount tires front doorstep when they open their doors tomorrow morning

Well….. really weird as I check my tread depth regularly, but these PS4s took a nosedive really quickly. The 3 other tires were all under 4/32….. which is crazy because they weren’t last month, but I did just start driving back into work….odd

Either way…..4 new 235/40 DWS06 shoes being thrown on right now…..

Definitely didn’t budget that in lol

Damn, yeah if there wasn't a ton of camber on the car already I would have been in the same situation :(
