      DSG or Manual?

      Stock the TQ kicks in pretty quick as these have pretty small turbos that spool quickly. Just under 2K RPM you should start having a lot of the engines available TQ so if you are...

      I looked at the RNS 315 for this but I believe it has no HD radio too? It is a pretty outdated system.

      Visually my GLI stock is notably lower than her 16 SEL.

      Projectors are nice for sure and there are many decent aftermarket options that are far more than the H7RC but much less than OEM. The H7RC is a solid quick and inexpensive option though.

      The Neuspeed intake is just the top (filter) part of the intake not the part that attaches to the turbo, it still makes the flute noise.

      3 of our VW's had alignment issues when new. I got that song and dance the first time about dealers not covering it. If you mention something within the first few days they seem to be cooler with it...

      Our of curiosity what is your model, how many miles and how often do you use?

      Read about the DeAutokey H7RC on here. I know everyone has their opinion on HID's in reflector housings and I for one would never just ram a regular HID in there. They make a world of difference and...

      We have had several turbo and non turbo VW's.

      I prefer the TSI but of the 2 you mentioned, I would pick the 2.5L. The 2.5 is not bad as a daily, more reliable and was not a rental car.

      No...

      Back in the day when I had one, I ran mine a similar way and had no issue for the several thousand miles I ran it. Took a 1,100 mile road trip in 105-117 degrees weather. Ultimately it is just copper...

      I should also add that in addition to being accepting of a respectable level of normal wear and tear, if you lease another VW they will usually forgive moderate excessive damage and significantly...

      profitable up-sell. If you take care of the car you don't need it at all. Normal wear and tear is acceptable per any lease, with vw chips, scratches and gouges 2 inches or less are considered normal...

      Welcome I switched over from a WRX to my first GLI in 2009. Your car is a MK5 and you have posted in the MK6 forum. You will probably find more relevant discussions and info over there. We have had 6...

      As stated, if you don't want noise, just go down pipe only. It will be a bit more throaty but not louder. You will get more turbo noise during spool-up. Down pipe is for power, cat back is for noise.

      I really liked my power module. I feel like some people are not as happy on the newer model GLI's. Mine was 85% as good as my tune. The tune hits harder and faster with more TQ. The top end was...

      Not to hijack but StoutGuard, I just recently read through your entire thread and I loved it. Mainly because my family is mostly in the Twin Cities and I am from the West. They all want me to move...

      Dmack,

      Your intake is not applicable to Gen 3 TSI cars. Your car is Maf based and ours are Map. On my WRX I had a similar setup, basically a MAF adapter with a filter attached. There is nowhere...

      Understood, but my initial advice was the most valuable you will get. Where do you think I learned it? Reading on here over the years! It is not worth rushing it, either IMO. I have never lived in...

      I don't know why I am helping you because I gave you solid advice that you are now considering, yet you acted like a douche bag.

      Anyways.. The second stage of the intake is not needed. Back in...
