      The 12v w/the snorkel and filter taken out of the stock airbox sounded amazing. The 2.8 12v in the early Mk IV chassis cars lost some of it's noise and was a bit too refined. When the 3.2L came out I...
    2. Find someone with VAGCOM if you haven't already...

      Find someone with VAGCOM if you haven't already and get the ESP disable via the TC button. The car actually will rotate aggressively relatively speaking for a street/commuter car. High speed body...

      I can kinda see what you're saying with the 135i. 135is.. not so much. Still it's an insanely small car. The biggest thing about the GLI that drives me nuts from a dynamics perspective is wheelspin....

      APR intake with Stg 1 chip. It's a nice difference. Biggest thing with the intake is throttle response is improved.

      I mainly went this way b/c I didn't want to wait on the S3, and that's too small. Cool car, but too small and DSG only. The GLI is bigger, cheaper, not MQB, but I can live w/that. Also you don't see...

      I actually mildly sliced the underside of my arm on the top part of the door the plastic was so rough and sharp. I try not to look at them b/c the rest of the interior is perfectly fine. Getting rid...

      The little stinker paid for itself over the weekend when I was putting on an intake on the car. If that hood prop would have been there I would have knocked it out a whole bunch of time. With the...

      I think they are pretty underrated and undervalued cars. However... the door cards are horrendous. I cut my arm on the top part b/c the edge was so sharp. That's not so cool. Rest of the car though...

      Agree with Phil on that one. Given how pressurized the single strut is I'm not seeing the need for two really. Also if this one starts to fail over time, replacement is REALLY easy. With the hood...

      Oh.. you should see my hand. Wow... I somehow managed to drop the whole z bracket down there. I am... a genius... :(

      Hey Phil... wasn't able to make it up to man the booth this year. Had too much work going on and still kinda in semi-recovery from surgery. :(

      BTW.. I'm really happy with the whole kit. Came out...

      You have to pry down more than indicated in the directions. You have to pry the very tip of the tab b/c that's what hits the z bracket. Other thing.. be VERY careful with the little metal retainers...

      Don't use the lock locking lug. I found that out on mine and fortunately a lug from my old '97 Jetta GLX worked and that's what I'm using now. The regular old VW lugs will work however.

      Installed mine yesterday. It's a bit of a fussy install. Not too bad. One thing to note, you don't need a torx T-30 on at least my 13.5 GLI. It was I think a 10mm bolt holding the lower tab in place....

      Yep.. it's like saying the Gen 3 motor in the GLI is "210hp" when they are doing 220 crank hp.. then chipping them gets 260hp. (taken from APR's site).

      I need take you out in the GLI... it's...

      ^ Bingo!!! if anything I would remove the stupid front sway bar. It may "roll" but at least the car will turn in. On my Rabbit I don't run a front sway and while it will slightly roll, the car will...

      Something to check is maybe the brake light switch(BLS). In the a4 chassis cars and I think A5 chassis cars as well the BLS was known to cause the car to buck and in bad cases shut off(really rare I...
