go with a metallic dark grey/ anthracite. Hides brake dust well and looks generally clean even when surprisingly dirty.

Great article. Barstool is a garbage fire, and unfortunately if NASCAR has saddled up with them, guess they have to get some burns too.

I love that technically the scirocco is a squashed 3 door golf built on the old architecture and it drives stateside fans that they don’t get it. But when they get the actual 3 door golf no one buys them and they become objects of lust until they’re discontinued.
Happy owner of a 3 door gti. :)

Been following the mqb pages and the forums (golfmk7 and vortex) and active with them for the better part of the last 4 years. i’m sure the downpipe they made is fine and will serve you well.

Eh, I’ve followed the forums long enough to know I won’t give money to CTS for their products. I’d look at something like Baun if I was willing to actually drop money on it. :)

you can totally vr6 these, and in fact there is a company called eurowise that makes a drop-in setup for them. basically buy the full wiring harness, engine, mounts, etc straight from them.

In good ole VW fashion, just giant legos.

add a vibrant resonator if the drone gets to be too much.

I saw one of these last year at a cars and coffee and thought it was absolutely brilliant. Someone who’s into that vanlife or camplife should definitely get up on this.

Key start? Oh you fancy. Here i am with the old safety lever and pull-start. And here i was feeling fancy about maybe adding a drawstring to lift the grass-chute so i stop risking toes/foot trying to clear. Good news, mower turned over on first pull of season. #notbad.

I mean, if they put it on the actual button area, the dinguses will never actually remove it, and they’ll it’ll be like all the “this is how i open” stickers on tailgates.

There’s a “mod-friendly” dealer not too far away, and i generally don’t deal with the dealerships unless it’s for parts or recall work. Change oil and DSG myself and i have a local euro specialist for everything else. I love the jb4 though, it’s enough extra power to not be much of a concern or strain on the system.

my mk7 is treating me well! I don’t post on oppo nearly as much anymore, but i’m quite active on the golfmk7 forums and the mqb facebook. 40k miles on it now. JB4 power-adder, retrofit headlights, performance pack brakes, the CSS-spec oem swaybar. Nothing crazy, but still lots of fun.

Gah, i found this out the hardway when the FIL brought his fozzy xt over with a CEL. Turns out he still had one of those banjo bolt screens in place and hadn’t been regular about changing his oil. When asked “when was the oil last changed” he replied “last time you did it” which was likely over a year prior to that Read more
