Well after 6 years of saying eh do I really need them I bought some Lasfit LEDs. Really nicely put together, but they lack that clunk the OEM holders give you when seated. I wish I would have done them sooner. It's interesting how far they light up reflectors and street signs, but meet the specified height and cutoff to not blind oncoming drivers.

My trusty BC BRs are also getting tired after 100,000 miles. Three of the shocks are starting to get that "skateboard" effect. I know I'll be slower at autocross, but I'm willing to sacrifice a bit for comfort. The roads over here are just too rough and spherical top mounts on coilovers simply don't make sense. I've narrowed my choices down to either stock R Estate/Variant springs with B6s, 034 RS3 Springs with B8s, or the left field Alltrack Springs with B4s and a B2BFab lift. For some reason e-acca doesn't acknowledge Hawaii's existence so will likely end up with the 034/B8 option. My goal is to fit 255s or 265s without rubbing under compression.

Also got a new windshield. Fuyao from Safelite for $450 installed. The quality of the glass is terrible compared to OEM. I really would like to find one of the mythical Saint Gobains. Still bummed I had to pay for a new windshield despite homeboys illegal truck throwing a rock shattering it.

SRS-Tech bumper flare came off. Debating if I want to buy another pair for $250 or just take the other side off.

Gave it a wash with the new spotless rinse setup. It’s so nice not needing to towel dry. Just blow most of it off with a leaf blower and let it drip.

PCV #5 I think

This one is an AP.

Much success. NO SMOKE!!


Finally have a car that doesn't smoke on right turns anymore. Lesson learned. If it ain't broke...

Oh and new grounding kit because I broke the connector trying to do the PCV last time.

Don't buy those. Don't buy brakes off AliExpress.

Go to AliBaba, and find the actual factory they come from. At the very minimum, you'll cut out the middle man who's selling them on AliExpress. Plus, you'll be able to see what kind of factory they come from.

Quick search. While I have very limited experience (once lol), they (different factory) gave me the lowest price even ordering a single sample set. So maybe $600 vs. $1000 after shipping? Send them a message. Tell them you want to buy a sample set, and maybe an order of 10 - 15 sets in the future, even if it's BS.

Edit: this looks like the listing/company you'd actually want.

Nice. Was this the non-OEM version?
