      I have returned. I hate weddings.

      So the new manifold gasket is in. Performance and gas mileage improved, but overall performance still isn't where it should be. I'll try and get new logs together...

      The two nuts are snugged up against each other but when turning the outer nut to tighten, both nuts seem to be turning. They make their way down the stud instead of turning the stud.

      Okay so everything is apart. I'm working on making sure the studs are snug. I think a couple have required a little tightening up so far. Some of them are just causing the nuts to both turn. Should I...

      Couldn't agree more. If I could do things over again, I would have went with a local tuner (who I'll plug anyway).

      Wow, I really appreciate you finding that and posting it. I mean that's what it looks like... they're cut and the inside edge of the pad looks like it's the only thing that would touch the rotor for...

      Plenty of Brakleen on both sides of the rotors before they went on. The pistons pushed in easily enough. If anything, the fronts were easier to retract than the rears as the plate on my calliper tool...

      Certainly sounds like both fronts. Just got my car back from my mechanic. He says all is well...

      It looks like the front HPS pads are angled and only making contact on one small portion of the...

      I used Permatex caliper lube. Would that do the trick?

      The rear brakes no longer have the manufacturers finish on them, but the fronts look untouched.

      Next to no mileage on the new setup.

      After quite a few more 100-20km/h stops, the rear brakes no longer have their manufacturing finish. The fronts still have the crosshatch pattern and the brakes still make a slight noise while...
    10. I lift the rear of my car at the pinch rail. Where can I put stands?

      I've searched and can't find a solid answer. I always lift my car front and rear at the pinch rail using a grooved out hockey puck. Up front I put the stands under the subframe bolts. Where's a...

      This may potentially tell me what the issue is... I thought I had bed my brakes, but my rotors still have the cross-hatch appearance on them. I'm using this page as a reference:

      Thanks for the reply. I don't think that's my issue. I should clarify... the sound I'm hearing isn't loud by any means. It's most likely just normal noise that will fade away over time. I'm just...
    13. Replaced rotors/pads. Unsure about noise.

      Just replaced my brakes with new OEM rotors and Hawk HPS pads on a Mk4 GTI. It was my first time doing a brake job, and everything went more or less smoothly. I did bed the brakes in as per Hawk's...

      Removing rear cup holder (no ash tray)

      Can someone explain to me how to remove the rear ash tray in a 20th where there is no arm rest or ash tray? All DIY guides and the Bentley don't seem to mention how to remove it properly. Thanks!

      I have 255/40/R18s with 8mm front and 18mm rear. Never had a single issue. Could probably go 10mm front and 20mm rear and be fine, but why push it?
