      When considering body roll, you need to account for not just the springs/shocks as suspension, but you sway bar (which acts as a spring stiffener), and your tires (the sidewall acts as a spring as...

      I vote 2.5 simply for the auditory stimulus of that motor with a full exhaust. I miss my 08 and kind of wish I never got rid of it for the TDI.

      Did you put sticky summer tires on it? That's an easy way to lose lots of MPGeez without even realizing it. More than likely though, it's just a bunch of new weight that requires more power to get...

      There's my other regret. I was under the impression the DSG was geared the same as the 6MT when I bought. So I get substantially less economy with my super short 6th, cruising at 2200 @ 70ishmph...

      If you are going to lease, there is one rule. Never, ever, ever, put money down on a lease.

      And there's a lesson to be learned in trading in a car as well. While the PT may not be the most sought...

      I second this opinion. Unless you're planning on moving into the burbs and commuting, the hybrid will pay off much faster than anything else. I was in the same boat a while ago with a 5 minute...

      Sorry, I forgot I was on vortex.

      You need to put some ultramega#swagstretch tires on there bro. Ride the bumpstops. If you aren't busting oil pans on twigs in the road you ain't dubbin'.

      I like 1, but they would need some squared sidewall true summer tires to really pull off the "look". The other wheels are meh.

      Go of course. Go down to the store to pick up some lumber and haul it back home, then take the dogs to the park.

      Utility, it's a car right?

      It all depends on what your goals are.

      Are you going to track the car? If you are, high temp fluid is a must.
      Daily driver? Fluid wont change anything.

      Probably carbon build up on the valve. That's about the mileage point when it starts to get nasty.

      I would recommend driving it hard for a good 20 minutes, and when you're done consider letting it...

      So all you did was change the pads? Did you use the proper push/turn tool on the rears to contract the piston?

      Looks pretty minimal to me. Should have hit it harder to total it out and get a new car. You'll never be able to sell that for anything sadly.

      Take the other wheel off, crank her up, and put it in gear and watch it idle. Axles are meant to function in a pretty large range of angles, so having a dent probably won't change anything. I would...

      You might also notice worse MPG right before an oil change as the oil has more deposits in it and has broken down.
