Rear sway bar for me, honestly that coupled with the crappy stock TSI tires was some of the most fun I've had with my golf. Traction was incredibly easy to break, and the car turned into this tail happy mess.

Also are we still down for a meet this Saturday? Would love a chance to get to see some more Mk7's.

I was contacted by another forum member to do some work on his car this Saturday, we are planning on starting at 12. Shouldn't take too long dynablinks and mk7.5 tails with wiring harness. So once I'm done with that I'm game to go on a drive or whatever. People are welcome over while we are working.

Would love to actually, 7.5 tails have been on my bucket list for quite some time so having a chance to see/install them in person would actually be quite nice. I know Melted is also free for the day so we might meet up with him as well.

Alright guys and gals, Rainier and I will be at my shop to do some work on his car at noon (12ish), anyone and everyone is welcome to join us. If you are interested PM me (I'll pm you after this Sparky, and text Melted).

Edit: Looks like Sparky will be joining us. All others welcome for the work, or a drive after. We still need to make plans for the drive.... Highway 1 is always fun.... but depending on weather can be bumper to bumper with people going to the beaches. The drive from my shop to Pt. Reyes is really fun and not as crowded normally.

So this weekend was a success. We got Rainier's mk7.5 tailights installed as well as the dynablinks. He got them all coded up despite issues with the coding instructions (typos) and I discovered a mis-installed pin for the left turn signal (our fault, not an issue with the wiring harness). Rainier and MeltedSolid had to head off afterword, but Sparky, his friend with a C5 Allroad and I went on a drive of highway 1 to the beaches and back to four corners. Even with some small traffic, it was a great drive.

I'm looking to get a South Bay drive going, maybe not this upcoming weekend, but weekend after for sure. Hopefully that will let some other people in the area put it on the calendar and make it down. If anyone has mod work to do and want to use the shop just let me know and we can make it happen as well as another informal drive.
