      Mine definitely ratchets, it is just missing a piece to properly engage the ratchet. I'm sure that is how most of them are.

      Congrats! I still don't understand why people think covering their plate has any benefit.

      Well, first off mounting the plate directly to the bumper will result in paint scaring due to the plate vibrating against the car. Second, you need to then make 4 additional holes, which, if you...

      It is really a very BAD idea to put $6k down on a lease, so with that said, get the GTI. Would you give your landlord $6k up front to lower your rent for 3 years? I didn't think so :)

      FYI VW changed the tow hook threading - it is no longer reverse threaded so older mounts for MK5's and 6's won't work.

      Oh and FYI, VW totally redid the tow hook threading so my MK6 mount won't work... not only is the threading different but it is no longer reverse threaded... I don't get VW's logic sometimes.

      Volvo License Plate Bracket Install

      So, I've been pretty displeased with the rear plate debacle with the pre order R, I've been pretty vocal. For VW to just brush it off is not OK, but moving on... All along I had planned to use the...

      Yes. The rear trim comes off VERY easy, I just pulled firmly with my hands from the top, came right off. Unscrew the 2 allen bolts. Done. I didn't tape anything, I like the position it rests at...

      The OP is just fixated on the lease - all he does is start threads about how bad it is. I don't understand why he doesn't just STFU and finance the car then? :screwy: :rolleyes: :banghead:...

      FYI If you just remove the screws holding the armrest in place and do NOTHING ELSE, the armrest will only sit at the highest setting which for me is perfect.

      Actually past VWs have been very rear brake biased... Obviously hard heavy braking is mostly front but casual braking has been rear biased.

      Me too! Funny this tire installer is a high end boutique place that is the ONLY place I will take good wheels to to have tires mounted. They road force balance and have never ****ed up a wheel yet...
