Paid another F*&K ton of money to the shop. Should be back on the road soon, although they did not give me an ETA. I know the ACT Xtreme clutch is in stock, so I think I'm just waiting for their euro specialist to be free again. It's immediately going on jack stands when I get home in order to raise coilovers to fit meatier rubber, and swap new oil pan and some other stuff I can do myself that opted to do on my own to save labor charges. Kinda nervous about the clutch driveability in traffic, but I guess it is what it is. Will also be pulling front bumper to fix it cosmetically, and do some other here and there stuff. Brake pad swap too if I can ever find my previous order of Hawk pads that fit the Macans. I bought 2015 Subie STI fitment pads because that is what I used last time, these pads don't fit though, easily way too big.
IIRC, depending on the site, 15 STI is the 6 pot, but that would be 16 STI in US.

Best to look for STI 04 - 15. In Japan and Europe that's 03 - 14.

Kind of like how Japan already has the ND3 and we don't get it until next year.

After adding and then removing a EQT Vortex from my cart approximately 1000 times over the past two weeks I finally pulled the trigger on it. Can't wait for it to get here!

LOL I'm not even going to say how much I debated between the Vortex and the Mamba 3076. I decided on the Mamba 3076, but that is when I also found out that my dog was going to need the money for the turbo for leg surgery.

This is how my wife's cat got the name Piston -- he got surgery rather than her dad fixing his motorcycle. Good dad, good cat dad, good cat.

At this point I really wanna buy a tire machine & balancer, I hate paying $20-$90 several times a year plus all the driving around and waiting.

Ordered a metal oil pan and some low profile ramps. Tomorrow or Friday getting a low profile (lower that what I got now) floor jack. Hopefully this will allow me to get the GTI on jack stands when she returns home.

I guess it's a bit late now, but I bought a handful of 2x10s and screwed them together, with 45 degree cuts with the circular saw to provide a bit of an easier climb to the next level. The topmost platform has a 2x3 at the end as a 'stopper', and each portion of the ramp has a roughly 18" flat section before the start of the 45 up to the next section. Heavy, but I'm confident in their holding ability for a while.

Mind if I ask what ramps you ordered? I have a pair of the plastic ones, but I get kind of antsy about them over time as who knows what plastic will do when it lives in a garage with a wide array of temperature swings.

Try my best to capture a good picture that didn't blow out one of the lights or make it look like everything isn't the same color. Clearly I did not succeed, but you get the overall picture...

The door strip is a solid color all the way through, the door grab handle isn't that bright in person, and the door pocket is actually illuminated pretty well, haha.

Moved over and slowed to let a Model X pass as we approached a spot CHP likes to hide w/ the Lidar out. :sneaky:

Waze is the way or did they outlaw it in CA?

Didn't show up on Waze til we were within sight of him. I've seen them park on that median so many times, I just slow down automatically as I approach the curve in the road. And this time it was an all white car and not the usual panda, so it was harder to see against the concrete.

And reviewing the footage, he didn't brake til about 4 car lengths before where he is in the screenshot. :ROFLMAO: Basically right on top of the CHP cruiser.
