What did you do to your mk7 today?

Today I took the intake manifold off to replace all 4 injectors. One injector was stuck open and needed to be replaced. I found it strange that the injector went out at only 75K miles. While I was there I did a carbon cleaning. I did it all by hand but I think it came out great. Also, the injector issue is fixed and the car is running better than ever now. View attachment 304943
Lol you can imagine my surprise when an injector failed a little over 40k miles

I know I have already posted some photos of the car recently but just did a good hand wash and dry. Couldn't resist taking it out for a few pics.

Specs:
18x8 et45 5mm rear spacer
255/35 tires
APR coilovers

Just installed the coilovers on Friday night and couldn't be happier. Upgraded from H&R Sport springs on stock struts.
Man do these ever ride 10x better, I shouldve ditched those springs 7 years ago.

Ac was low on r134a

Oil cooler is supposedly on its way out so I’m having the shop fix it. Wish I had a garage..

Charged a battery that was so dead after the weekend that the doors wouldn't unlock with the fob. Anybody else run the rear USB ports and have the 12V outlets fuse moved so that you always have power at the cigarette lighters?

That's the only thing I've added recently. I did add eight fuse positions to the fuse panel a little less than 2 weeks ago but haven't installed any of those fuses or the modules they will power.

I did see my car's external soundaktor twin though 🤣. I'm running Urus firmware.

That mismatched green is grinding my gears.
Yea, the first picture I took was from kind of far away and rear-left, couldn't really tell but something looked off. I walked up close and saw that non-sense, which is the only reason I took the side shot.

Somebody shopped in the AutoZone Racing aisle.
It's really quite astonishing how often you see weird stuff like this on really nice cars at the private airport. I suppose if you own/fly on multi-million dollar planes you treat your car the way I treat my bicycle.

Replaced AC blower motor at 149k miles. Oiled it at 80k & 105k miles when it started acting up. I was going to do that again but I've been driving long distance & didn't want to get stuck without AC.

PSA : rotate your tires. I've been lazy after I stopped tracking & ended up with fronts that look like this.

Toe will kill tires. I killed the inside of my street tires on the rear last year due to toe out and not paying close enough attention to the tires inside edge.

It's been a while since my last alignment, but I was running zero toe.

I definitely need to get another alignment. Kind of cool. Just found out one of the seasoned autocrossers has an alignment/ suspension shop like 10 minutes from me.

I'm in need of new brakes, still on the fence on what to do.
Just a good set of pads/rotors and call it a day or go the Macan caliper route.

Macan's are always the answer, except when they aren't.

Macan swap with Stoptech rotors and hawk pads- My favorite mod.
