      I'll start with that. I did a shift linkage adjustment about six months ago, but between then and now, my axle on that side of the vehicle exploded while doing 100km/h on a freeway. Guess I'll look...

      At some point last night while driving, I noticed that it became difficult to shift into first, second and fourth gear. Once I was at my destination, I tried to shift into the various gears with the...

      Anyone else disappointed that oryx white is the white option we're getting?

      For me, the options on the R have been one disappointment after the other. No 3-door option was acceptable. No sunroof...

      Not having a 2-door option available was something I could accept. Had to leave the door open for children in the near future.

      I'll try the Dremel method. The top of the strut had an allen and a hex and they both absolutely disintegrated.

      Stripped allen slot on KW coilovers

      Pretty sure the individual who installed my coilovers took an impact wrench to both top nuts when doing the install. I just went to replace my strut mounts and bearings only to end up rounding off...

      Tested the actuator. Starts cracking at ~5 PSI and stops travelling at ~10 PSI. I'm trying to Google to find out what's normal.

      When I released the pressure on the Mittyvac, I couldn't hear the...

      I've done this two days in a row now... at lunch I go out and just poke and prod the wastegate rod for a bit. Start up the car and let it idle. It'll idle great. No hiccups whatsoever. There's...

      I think the diaphram is good, but I'm going to verify this evening. What I'm referring to is the sleeve that links the outside rod to the internal wastegate flap. I'm thinking it's worn and leaking.

      I have a general question: what is used to seal the area around whatever connects the external wastegate linkage to the internal flapper? I'm fairly certain it's leaking.

      I'm in Vancouver and planning to pick up a manual R in 2016.

      So what should I be looking for as far as exhaust gas temps? I just got the new downpipe put it. Max temp I saw last night was 955 C in VCDS.
