      I'm surprised CT didn't make that list, but drivers in my area (just east of New York) are probably worse than the rest of the state.

      Not necessarily. The suspension will react differently depending on load, speed, road conditions, etc. It's possible that a suspension issue will manifest itself under specific conditions and seem...

      Nice! Which Neuspeeds did you get? I'm really interested to see the 52s on a MKVII.

      Agreed - thanks! I drove an STI a little bit ago and I thought it was punishingly firm without any real handling benefit so I'm glad to see this coming out in reviews.

      Hmm… that almost sounds like it could be a loose sway bar/suspension component. I'm not super familiar with the MKVII suspension (I don't have one yet) but I know there was a recall on GTIs - maybe...

      That totally sucks but I can't imagine any resolution other than a repair. I don't think VW Corporate would authorize something as extreme as a buyback, but you may be able to get them to pony up...

      I remember having to do that on my old MKV too. I don't know if it's the same design, but on the V they used stretch bolts which are pretty much one-time use. You should pick up a new set of those if...

      With an ET of 45, I can't see why 235s wouldn't fit. There are some people on here that are running some fairly aggressive setups that work fine. I wouldn't consider 235 on an 8.5" wheel with an ET45...

      Wheel offset will affect this scenario as well, so it isn't solely based on width.

      This is the same guy who didn't know what swirl marks in paint were either. My guess is this is someone messing with us. Otherwise... well, I'll leave it at that. :screwy:

      There should be no reason to "pull the ecu" to reflash it as far as I know.

      Well, I'd rather wait a couple of months and get a feature like LED tails then have the car released earlier without them so I don't see this as a huge deal from my perspective.

      I'm picking up a 2015 - it's sort of a 40th birthday present to myself :P. I have an excellent relationship with my dealer (the owner is a friend of mine) so I usually pay no more than $100 or $200...
