I should hope not. Let's keep it that way.
All going to WiTW will get to meet the one lady that deserves a medal for putting up with me all the time.
She is pretty excited for a vacation from the kids and to drive her car down there. She is pretty laid back. I need her to meet more Volkswagen girls!
Got the alignment done yesterday. It actually wasn't that bad, but it was due by time and I don't like wearing tires out due to negligence. Once the coilovers go on, I am just going to have to realign it again.
Got an exhaust leak fixed the other night as well. When we installed the Unitronic cat-back, we had to make an adapter and use a crappy u-clamp. Will that was causing a small leak. I just got around to swapping that clamp out with an OEM style sleeve clamp. No more leak.
Well, it's official. The battery needs to be changed. Car died several times today. I will be changing it once I am home from work (about 1930) and then on the road to Fontana Dam!
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.
