      Got it. Thanks for the details. I'll read the thread for sure.

      I actually went through a similar exercise about 2 or 3 years ago when I had Shine refresh the stock (original!) suspension parts. I...

      Has anyone used EBC Red pads? Are they ok on the street? Decent initial bite in cold weather? I'm in New England.

      You put an R front end on an MK IV? I disconnected my front stock bar and have nothing in the font. It works well with the Shine SRS rear bar and springs setup. The MK IVs are heavy understeer cars...

      Of course the one-piecers are going to be a fraction of the cost! :) What's your goal anyway? DDing? Track? Looks?

      I concluded that the two-piecers are mostly for race use because they are much...

      Epic, KG, thanks for the replies.

      (I probably should have mentioned all the suspension stuff in signature as well. I'm definitely pushing the car on the track. I'm often on three tires in corners,...

      Cooking Corners

      I'm running ATE pads and flat Zimmerman rotors.

      Last season I ran a track weekend with my GTI up at Calabogie in Canada (great track). I had the brakes smoking a little at one point on day one....

      Brake Choices

      Looking around online, the choices keep growing, only making a buying decision more difficult.

      So far, it seems like rotor considerations might be: ECS / Racing Brake / Stoptech / Brembo ?

      I...

      Talked to ESC thru webchat: They do not have weight specs for either stock or the slotted geomet rotors. They said that their rotors were "very close to the weight of stock". I don't have too much...

      Pads and Rotors for my AE GTI - Spirited daily driving & track days

      Has anyone used ECS's Geomet slotted rotors?

      I had Autotech slotted with Mintex pads many years ago and found that they were decent for spirited daily driving and occasional track day use. I...
    13. HELP - D2S projectors in MK4 lights

      Hey there. Dumb question: How did you fit the D2S projectors in MK4 lights?

      I recently ordered D2S 3.0 projectors from Retrofit Source and was about to cut up my Depo housings to epoxy in the...

      Al, based on your experience, what's the best IC upgrade for a 1.8t with only small upgrades (ie: stage 1 or 2 ecu)?

      I'm preferential to a SMIC because of ease of install, stealth factor, and less...

      I'm not sure where you saw me complaining about anything.

      I was simply asking the question if anyone knew anything about these "least expensive" SMIC's vs. "most expensive" SMIC's like the...

      Yeah, I hear that. But if you look at the data on Tyrolsport, you'll see that they proved that their unit performed identical to the compared larger FMIC on the highway (for temps), and BETTER than...
    17. Go ahead. Laugh.

      I know at least some of you guys are going to laugh at me for even suggestion this, but has anyone here (who's looking for the absolute cheapest SMIC solution possible) even looked at the Tyrolsport...
    18. Interesting info found here

      For those trying to diagnose the jerky mid-throttle symptom, I ran into this info on a Scoda forum, talking about the same 1.8t motors.

      There is a lot of interesting info about how the boost...

      Nope. Not yet. 102k miles on the N75 I think. Original.

      I ran it on the track this weekend and eventually overheated the motor :o . The GIAC map must be putting more heat into the motor because I...

      Got my SRS Rear bar for my 2003 1.8t GTI from Kerma. Was a bit more than what Dick was charging.

      Best money I've spent on my car in it's 10 years on the road. No question.
