Yes, and a no.
Regular driving isn't an issue really, more so under load. The ECU will pull timing in the event of detonation and cause the vehicle to 'limit' itself based on the circumstances. I've put 91 on my...
First Golf/GTI I've ever owned (all but mk5) which will take a golf bag without pulling out a driver or wood to lay the bag down in the back. Was so happy when I realized this :D:D
Or closed, no biggy :laugh:
93 makes sense then, just that you can get 91 or better everywhere. But you can't always get 93, in some cases..
Stage 1 91 oct and don't look back. If you don't launch or drive your car too hard, the clutch shouldn't be a problem. Launching KILLS clutches, especially with 380ft lbs!
Yup, hit the nail on the head. And while women may tend to drive less "hard" on vehicles, they usually lack in most maintenance categories (services, basic detailing etc). So either way you're F'd...
I was so satisfied with my VWR springs until now. You guys are "enabling" me, big time! :beer:
Mod away! Just keep all of your stock parts if you don't intend on buying it out at the end. Flash it back to stock for warranty work/ visits and you'll be fine. In general, as long as you return the...
This :thumbup: Best cheapo mod you can find!
Unless high mileage I've never used new bolts for suspension swaps. Never had an issue with suspension/ brake hardware on VW's. Piece of mind is always good though...
Head bolts and alike, I've...
lmao, just saw this. Classic "she said" right there :thumbup:
BTW: How are the brakes working out for ya?
VWR springs, Tune, LED tails (a nice touch), 12v dummy plug from the Audi's and good to go! Enjoy the car in its new state. It won't be that way for ever :beer:
Damn, I thought I was at high K!
36,000 kms here, 4 oil changes. Got stage 1 and lowered at 500kms. Went stage 2 at 5k and have had zero issues with the car itself since. Still on my original...
Congrats, and welcome!:beer:
Since the 20v 1.8t, many (a LOT of people) have been pushing the stock internals well over the 300whp mark without issues. Hecks, even the 16v 2.0's can handle 300whp pretty well (this was a 148bhp...
Welcome back! Good thing you didn't go black, because once you do... You're not welcome back! :P
I admire the car, looks great! Ottawa on the other hand... Lol :p
