      That was really my one complaint about the Conti 5Ps. I burnt through them quick, and both the ride quality and driving performance were seriously diminished in the second half of their life. That...

      Been running this setup for well over a year and still a big fan. If you're worried about notchiness (like I was), this is the way to go. DG is a really well made kit, but was...

      Just got my 30k service done last week. I made the appointment electronically, selecting the 30k maintenance check as the reason for the appointment. The dealer's website noted the work included in...

    6. Help from those who have had their engine replaced after a water pump failure

      My apologies for the bad assumptions. There are a couple of members who have had their engines replaced (due to bad water pumps). You can identify them with a search, and I would PM them directly. ...

      What Did You Do To Your Golf R Today?

      This is the biggest misunderstanding of warranty law I see on the Interwebs. The dealer doesn't have to do a damn thing until you take them (and VW) to court. Only then does the burden of proof come...

      Be sure to let us know how that works out with the spacer kit.

    9. Help from those who have had their engine replaced after a water pump failure

      If the tech didn't fill with any engine oil, they wouldn't have been able to drive it out of the engine bay to the pick up area of the dealership without it being clear there was something wrong. ...

      I agree with this to an extent. It was not true of the MK6, which I thought blew away the Mk5 aesthetically as soon as I saw pictures of it.

      I've seen some photographs of the Mk7 that make it...

      I agree with the bolded text completely, and my shop did something similar. When I was referring to not resurfacing, I meant not turning, like with brake rotors.

      That's the one. Definitely the right part number, and it will fit on the R. I wish I had done this when I did everything else, but it probably doesn't make a real noticeable...

      I chose not to replace the DMF, and I had a few thousand more miles at the time than you do now. I have had no issues. I would not attempt to resurface the DMF.

      As far as which clutch setup to...
