      I never did get the clips on either and have had some rubbing of the e-brake line on the gas tank, enough to wear a groove. I've wrapped the brake line there with some rubber hose and adjusted the...

      Kind of a direct fit, depends on how detail oriented you are ;) On the TTRS anyway you need to take apart the cap and re-index it otherwise it sits crooked when tight. You can find them for much less...

      None so far after three track days. The factory carbon fiber covers have noticeable yellowing after 50k miles. I suspect the 034 carbon fiber will get there eventually, these engine bays run quite...

      Honestly I think it's worth it even with the stock tune where I expect to get zero power gains from it. It's beautifully made, looks great and adds a nice aural component that had been missing. And I...

      Actually I went back to using stock pads on the street. as they're reasonably priced and work fine even for spirited drives. I swap in Pagid RS29s for track days and tend to run those for most of the...

      No worries... seems like there's interest in something at least for the mk3. Many of us have scratched our heads wondering where the hell we'll put gauges :)

      I'm not sure a mk2 air vent will fit in a mk3. And as mentioned, you'd lose the integrated climate control switches in the vents.

      I haven't installed on a mk2 but it was pretty straightforward on the mk1 and I don't see why you'd need to drop the subframe. That said, it was probably the worst mod I did on my mk1.

      155mph was the limit for the mk2 RS as well unless you got the carbon fiber engine cover pack, then it was raised to 174mph. In the US that option was standard.

      Fitment on the skirts was very good on my car but I would strongly advise against using the included screws for the install.

      I'm not sure that it's impossible. There were several made for the mk1 TT.

      Not really. I use a punch/drift to knock the retaining pins out and then a nylon trim tool for leverage to push the pistons back in to the caliper. I did buy a Lisle Tools 4-piston spreader but...

      I think some of this is down to the packaging and expectations that come from it. Look at what the Golf R is typically being compared against, STI, and other hot hatches. What's the favorite...

      Except you can't get a mk3 TTS roadster in the US (if OP is in the States) so you're stuck comparing a base mk3 at 200hp against a lighter Boxster with more horsepower. The Boxster should feel...

      There's also a factory rear subframe bracing option. These are from the roadster but I'm pretty sure the coupe has at least holes for these braces already. You'd need to use rivnuts to attach to the...
