No problem, bro. And it was a blast.
I was going to get to those but I had to do work.
Since I am here, I guess I will post that Crystal and I had a great time down at Wookies in the Woods.
The R got pushed to it's limits and sounded great doing so. I wish I got more videos of the exhaust and more photos, but we were too busy driving to do so. Next year, the GLI will be staying home and hopefully the R will have more things done to it and we will take more photos and videos.
No updates. Just been gas and go. The 50,000 mile maintenance is due very soon, about the same time as my GLI 65,000 maintenance, so I will be doing that shortly. I will hopefully be buying the proper tools for the DSG service and knocking all the fluid changes out this summer. Also considering the new Forge intake.
The coilover fund was going nicely, until we had some banking issues and had to drop that cash into an account to keep it afloat. That being said, it has started again and these will be on this summer.
Stumbled acrossed these on eBay today:
Currently bidding on them for a very nice price. If I get them, they will have 215/45 Nitto NeoGen and a 5mm spacer on the rear.
225/45R17: 60.0 mph
215.45R17: 59.1 mph
215/40R17: 57.1 mph
Trying to stay as close as possible to the OEM diameter.
I really want FK Silverlines. But their availability is starting to upset me. Starting to widen my view on other setups.
Please keep all conversations in this thread extremely intelligent in case Slave IV comes in. I don't want to feel inferior.
Just purchased a set of new black BBS CH's (18" x 8", ET40) today. Waiting for them to ship from California and then buying rubber (215/40 NeoGens). They will not go on until coilovers have been purchased.
Still debating on whether or not to cheat on FK. Their availability is garbage.
Nice wheels! As far as coils check with ESE. I got mine there and only took about 10 days. Only thing that sucks with them is they are in PA so your going to get hit with sales tax. So would be more than ECS but may be able to get them quicker if in a hurry.
As far as ESE, I have heard few people say they get their stuff quickly from them, especially coilovers. But I will see what happens. If I can scrounge up more dough quickly, I'll just try them out.
