      This looks really official, thanks! I'll be using this for the 10k oil change (and the software update that adds the boost gauge...IF THEY EVER RELEASE IT!!!).

      The cop comparison is pretty bad. I'm not sure where you live, but if there's a cop sitting on the side of the highway traffic will always slow down to speed limit/below speed limit. That being...

      The dealership is clearly in the wrong but seriously, why aren't you guys letting them know you have car-net enabled? Free goodies are nice if that's what you're all after but all this himming and...

      It's a little tricky but I managed to get mine to work. There are 2 harnesses when you open it up, one for the light sensor and one for the auto-dimming mirror. If you wire to the auto-dimming...

      I'm guessing the "game changer" comment is due to the fact that they are the ONLY company that can port flash the H ECU's. As of right now, the only other company that can flash the H ECU's is GIAC...

      For UM I think they just need screenshots from VAGCOM to build it, meaning if you have a VAGCOM you can take the screenshots, send it to your UM dealer, and they can send it off to UM. I would ask...

      I was lucky enough to be the test mule for their flash. I plan to get a full write-up done shortly, but holy cow. The 3 hour drive down was WELL worth it!

      Brake Noise?

      Been loving my 2016 Golf R, it's just over 1000 miles now. Yesterday and today I noticed a noise from what sounds like the front left wheel well. It definitely varies with speed and I only notice...

      On UM's facebook page they posted a while back an image of VCDS with the H ECU unlocked. They never did follow up with an official announcement though.

      APR's first stage 1 tune for my TT-RS made me never want to buy any APR products again. UM on the other hand is awesome and fixed their tune while giving my TT-RS more power :)

      Oh man, nice! That money is actually going towards another blendmount. I tried being cheap and buying this alternative:...

      Speaking for myself, I am not a pro driver. I might not even be a good driver. Doing track days and classes has always been something desirable to me but I simply haven't had the time to do so. At...

      I paid $37k for the STi brand new, traded it in for $31.5k with 25,000 miles on it.



      Honestly, not really. Torque is nice and all, but when I had that car it never felt like it was lacking any...

      You're right, but it's all relative. I would consider the Golf R way more "adult" than the giant winged STi I came from :)

      Oh man, I definitely miss that car. The reason I got rid of that car was because the warranty was expiring and I didn't want to lose my shirt on a freak bmw repair bill (again, peace of mind in a...

      You would have HATED the STi in traffic. The long gearing in the R makes it so you can coast pretty well/comfortably in 2nd gear from around 10 mph all the way up to 35 mph. I really don't mind it...

    19. Traded in my 2015 STi for a 2016 Golf R, here are my thoughts after 4 days

      Background

      The reason I started looking for a car to replace the 2015 STi is because I no longer felt that I could rely on it as a daily driver. It was...

      I have an oil extractor on the way. Where do you guys run the tube? Through where the filter is or through where the dipstick is? I'm thinking it would probably be wise to change out the filter...
