      Have the bottom collar taken out, notch the frame and spin them down. You can get under 23"ftg with those. They won't last long, but sorry either do that or get bigger tires.

      Did some additional polishing over the weekend.



      Can't wait to relocate that god d@mn battery and fuse box!

      Also looking to swap out the coolant reservoir and washer fluid relocation.

      I wonder if us pre-mk6 guys can use that fuse box. That's a little easier to hide.

      My wife has a 2012 mk6 2.5L and has the same fuse box as my mk5. Never seen one like in the above pic before.

      You still need that tranny bit Dom? Know you've been wanting to change your fluid for a while now.


      *To keep with point of thread* Drove it to work with no music and enjoyed the beautiful exhaust note.

      Changed my rear pads for the first time @ 110,000km. Did the fronts at 145,000km. Love the fact all I do is hiway driving. I got buddies that change them every 35-45,000km

      i re did the fuel line, and remove the motor mount bracket to see if it can get it made locally in 1 piece... the middle bolt was messing with my sleep.

      the valve cover breather that BW sends in their kit was big and ugly imo and would hit the hood. the new breather in that pic is smaller and has a better fit.

      my original tranny mount that i just took out felt like it was shot (i had upgraded the two other mounts and left this one for 80k)
      Now with the complete replacement the whole car feels solid, improved traction , smoother shifting.
      there is a bad vibration around 1100 rpm....hopefully once the mount is broken in it wont be as bad.

      edit: i also broke the little white plastic ring that holds the side to side part of shifter.

      im going to go check what my mount looks like compared to

      Noticed my NLS SS had surface rust on it. If you are tedious on keeping your bay clean you might want to take it off and coat it with something Dom. If you haven't already.

      About 2 months or so ago I installed the full round of BFI Stg1 mounts. I'm not sure if the mounts 'broke in' some or if I just got used to the vibrations at certain points. Either way, it bothers me less now than right after I installed them. I'm sure you'll find the same.

      Thanks, here are a few more and some more details:

      front - helper springs and 15 threads left to drop.
      rear - perches in and if I remember correctly 1" worth threads left

      24 7/8" FTG all around

      wheels: 18x8 ASA AR1
      tires: 225/40ZR-18 General G-MAX AS-03

      I don't like the wheels, love the tires.
