    1. Has anyone sold a car, missed it, and bought the same car again?

      Short answer - absolutely not. I have owned quite a number of cars, at some point I mentally check out and move on, I don't look back and have never repurchased an old car. There are too many other...

      You already paid VW for a sport suspension upgrade on your GLI. I've driven the newest ones, they aren't super tight but represent a great balance of good handling and good compliant ride. You're...

      Un-Lowering

      The smart thing to do is put the factory springs/shocks back on the Jetta and end this thread. You already said you have an R32 to screw with, and the Jetta is your winter car, why need to screw with...

      Overall on the highway it rides good, and quite smooth and controlled. At slower speeds over choppy roads you feel it. My car has 235-50-18's. I was considering downgrading to 17" 235-55-17 but I...

      Tiguan ride quality

      I have a 2012 Tig SEL with 18" wheels with factory 235-50-18 tires and stock suspension. The car rides pretty smooth for the most part, but I also find that it's sensitive to lots of small bumps and...

      TFSI Head Build and Rods

      No I don't, but since retiring my K04 GTI from track events wouldn't mind a factory setup again on the clutch that could work. I don't dislike my SB stg2, it works great but on a street only car the...

      TFSI Head Build and Rods

      Removing the DMF does disturb things. But those of us with BPY motors who need better clamping force don't have many options with clutch kits that work with the factory DMF. I'm not aware of the TDI...

      how low can I go?

      If you are going to destroy one of VW's finest GTI's with aftermarket garbage please sell the car to me! I'll restore it to factory glory.
    11. MK1 Bilstein Heavy Duty Struts (not inserts) Not Available?

      This online guide still lists front and rear for mk1. The BTS kits were Bilstein Tuned Suspension, and included matched lowering springs. I had the 172 kit on my old 81 Mk1 Cabbie turbo, which also...
    12. MK1 Bilstein Heavy Duty Struts (not inserts) Not Available?

      The mk1 kit was the infamous BTS-172. Search might turn up used. Was the autocross setup some 30 yrs ago.
    13. 2012 Turbo Beetle suspension questions - springs or sway bars or both

      I would recommend leaving the stock springs in, upgrade the sway bars to Hotchkis front and rear, and replace the stock dampers with Koni Yellows. Turn the rebound adjustment 1 full turn from full...

      My GTI Nightmare

      So this was caused by incorrect coil packs installed, any particular reason Audi coil packs were installed and not OEM originals? Self inflicted gun shot wound for a red color?

      For the REVO STG III K04 guys............

      If you had misfires after installing the injectors, but not before (independent of software) you likely have a faulty injector. Run a log on the misfire counters and try to isolate which cylinder is...

      My GTI Nightmare

      This reads more like failed repair attempts than something intrinsically wrong with Mk5's.

      MKV ST coilovers and Swift Springs

      I would not advise using a shorter stiffer spring on the ST's unless you are also going to have the damper shafts shortened, and possibly re-valved, otherwise you'll surely end up with damaged shocks...
