Everyone told me my summer setup wouldn't rub at all (19x8.5 et45 with 235/35/19 tires). 95% of the time, it didn't, but big dips in the road, potholes, and speed bumps produced some rub.

Did the...

To be fair, there hasn't been a single R32 guy who HASN'T enthusiastically waved first. Then again, there aren't that many around.

I would estimate I get a wave back by about 10% of the GTIs and...

Mine does this as well. Noticed it more after my clutch was replaced under warranty.

Could it be the TOB? Don't think they replaced mine although I should have asked them to. Probably not as you...

Dude, don't go catless. Emissions hassles aside, it smells like ass.

If I didn't already have my neuspeed DP, I would have gone Baun
Performance with an HJS cat welded in.

If eavesdropping was the issue, couldn't you just mute the video before showing it to anyone? What they're doing says it all, no need for audio.

I found it difficult to find the right seat position/steering wheel height as well. In fact, if it ever gets moved, I will probably have a hard time getting it right again. It's just an awkward setup...

I think this is common with the MK7. Took me a while to get used to it coming from other manual cars.

You can either rev it a little higher than you normally would before engaging the clutch or...

For 300hp, I wouldn't even consider a turbo swap. IC, DP, tune, and call it a day. All in, it can be cheaper than the turbo itself and you'll be in the 310whp range from a good tuner.

My vote is ceramic tint all around ($350) + shit that won't cause potential issues on a road trip ($250). Maybe harmless stuff like front strut brace/rear chassis brace (although you won't really...

I hear you, get why people do it. I just don't like the idea of an added part to the wheel to push it out. I'm sure it's fine for most but so were some of my other mods on previous cars that tried to...

Why the hell would I put staggered wheels on a gti? lol I have 8.5 wide wheels at +45 all around, can rotate them no problem. Look great without some sketchy shit holding it together.

Agree. I'd never run spacers. They're an added component that could fail/cause issues, a band-aid for a problem that could be addressed with the proper wheel/tire setup.

I think a base golf is pretty much a nicely optioned econobox. Lumping a GTI into that doesn't fit due to the bigger engine, turbo, and other performance features. Would make less sense calling a...

Some mods are a must for me whether I bought the GTI or R, so I factored them into my budget. The R would have put me well over that with those mods.

Still, there are days when I wonder if I...

It's hard to believe you can buy a $40+K 370z for $2.5K just because it has hail damage lol parting out the engine would get you more than that.

Edit: guess that's the starting auction price. If...
