Great pictures.Well, not GTI related exactly, but rented this sweet little Golf Polo while in Switzerland last week. Fun little car and got great gas mileage. Very numb to drive, and quite slow, but I imagine the GTI version is good fun. I accidentally rolled it into a cement pillar while trying to pull into a tight spot. Missed reverse and was still in neutral. Did apparently $1500 Swiss francs worth of damage (doubt that), but I paid for full coverage so no harm to me. Still the most damage I've ever done to a car though (aside from bad mod choices lol).

Also purchased BFI Stage 1 mount kit. Hitting 50k very shortly and going to be installing the mounts and downpipe while doing service, should be a nice refresh to the car.
Next track day for sure is Nov 27th/28th at Laguna Seca. Would like to do one in Mid-October as well but the group I normally run with isn't hosting anything so will have to find something else. I'm taking the BRZ to autocross next week though, which should be good fun. Will be the first time for that car.
What do you think you’ll end up doing for the whole cooling system? I’m not confident I won’t have issues next weekend with the wagon..
dibs on macan setup less pads!Over the weekend I removed the JB4, installed RS7 plugs and flashed EQT stage 2. All went fairly smoothly. Only driven about 10 miles with EQT tune and did a few 70% pulls in 3rd. Definitely pulls harder, slight hesitation around 4500 rpm but may have been TC kicking in. Will let the ECU “learn” for a bit then reassess. Big question is how it will perform on track.

Old plugs look fine after 6k miles, a bit rich. Tiny bit oil in cyl 1 but nothing crazy. Speaking of oil, picked up a BFI catch can as I am anticipating potential PCV issues with the highest boost. BL plate has worked great for me so far and this will keep it in place, so seemed like a good option instead of replacing entire assembly.

Might be getting a great deal on an ST60 kit this week, keeping my fingers crossed deal goes through and everything is in good order. Listed JB4 and if I end up with ST60 kit will sell Macan brakes next. Also have new rear rotors and EBC yellow pads to
