      I can tell you that the installers set mine 10mm lower than OEM, but first the overinflated the tires. (I asked them to check the tire pressure prior to starting). Not sure why they set them all to...

      I'll tack on an update.
      The springs have settled a touch. I am now scraping on things that weren't previously a problem. I'll have the shop raise the car to OEM prior to alignment.

      Update on the MSS Front springs on my TT

      Well, my commute today to and from work was long enough to make some observations:

      The car is definitely smoother over small ridges and bumps. Cracks, seams and winter heaved asphalt are barely...

      Mmmmm. No, I don't think he was lying about anything. He probably just didn't work with alignments. It certainly wasn't a weird or unpleasant conversation by any stretch. Everyone I met there was...

      I find it fascinating that spring rate could impact steering feel. I'm a mechanical engineer and I struggle to wrap my mind that.

      The technician I talked to at the shop mentioned that a 4 wheel...

      I had my fully adjustable Streets kit installed today. Of course, as bad luck would have it the weather is not participating. Rather than drive the quick joy ride I had planned, I instead I drove...

      Gag! What's this? NO.....

      It's a TT stationwagon folks. Yup. All they need to add now is fake wood grain down the side to complete the process of even more people disliking the MK3. I'm...

      I'm very interested in your how-to. This especially appeals to me for improving the brightness of the reverse lights. I back into my garage every evening, and not having a bright reverse makes this...

      But, if one wants to maintain OEM ride height, adjustable fronts are the only option as far as I know. I believe that's what he meant about the ride height being a concern.

      You can maintain OEM height if you choose with the fully adjustable frons and rears.

      My MK2 TT uses no oil

      I'm happy to say that my 2012 MK2 TT never needs to have an oil top-up between services. I mentioned to the service manager while getting my oil changed, and his reply was that this is likely...

      I'm definitely not looking to find the cheapest price. I learned a long time ago that you get what you pay for. Low labor rates = shoddy work. Anyway, I just found out that the car...
