      One of my partners at work daily drives his 06 C2S. It has 160k on it. It's been through a few water pumps and the interior looks a bit tired but otherwise it is mechanically sound and only put him...

      Haha, what exactly is "much better" about it? The PCM and climate control panel are different and appear more resilient. The seats, door cards, dash, etc are all the same.

      I think the build...

      It is a solid step up from the 996, not that that isn't damming with faint praise haha. The climate control buttons are the worst for sure. They don't tolerate fingernails of any kind. Mine is an 07...

      Decided to leave the power alone. 5.9 is plenty, and to be honest the car has very little traction in second gear now. ...

      Wow, 15 years here as well! Just realized this. Thanks for the reminder. Man, how far I've come since that day I registered in highschool. I remember it well. Signed up to ask questions about...

      To me it is just blobby and melty in a very similar way to the CLAs I see running around. I'll be the first to admit that Mercedes excites me about as much as Lincoln or Buick, so my opinion doesn't...

      I really, REALLY dislike the exterior of this car. It looks cheap and tacked together design-wise. The CLA rear end just seals the terrible deal off for me. Gross.

      :D

      Still not finished tweaking. I really need no lift to shift software. As the car makes more power, the ECU is more and...

      Haha, nice. Ones with 60k or so are in the sweet spot. Nothing that could go wrong with one at that mileage compared to one with 15k and many times some of the problem areas have already been...

      Nobody insists on the VTGs. The fact that they are there, and work fairly decently is why people use them (hell my car is approaching 140 mph trap speeds on them). To go from the VTGs to the alphas...

      It was a "power shift" and I didn't lift off the gas when I shifted. Occasionally the ECU doesn't like that and it dumps boost on the shift like a regular, interrupted one. It did that on this...

      Let me rephrase myself. The GTi's flavor of EA888 has variable exhaust lift, which helps it spool up bigger turbos faster. As such, it has a bigger turbo than any other engine in the family. This...

      Most of the power is actually due to that big 'ol billet turbo hanging off the side of the motor. The other EA family engines don't get the same turbo the GTI does. It is substantially bigger than...

      Haha, thanks man. You are allowed up to 3% slope for the results to be valid. Well within spec at 2.1%

      The car runs so freaking well. It is literally smooth as silk. Feels a lot like the GT-R...

      The motor in the MK7 GTI is extremely impressive in the power department. A good friend of mine has a flash-only one and it is hilarious how hard it pulls in 3rd gear on up. That said, it is an...

      E85 tuning is coming along beautifully. Stock turbo record. Fastest known 997.1 or .2. Boom :cool:

      No way. Regular 3 series have steep depreciation already and you've added a salvage title on that as well? Pepper your Angus.

      My Mom has an ILX while her RLX is in the shop getting a headlight recall done. It is the 2.0/5AT. What a turd. The interior is half ass at best as well. There are very obvious reasons eveywhere why...

      The 9A1 that replaced the Mezger is wet sump instead of dry sump like my car. The dry sump setup on the Mezger motors was expensive and a bit...
