      Microphone foam over the air pump hose with a zip tie securing the foam.







      According to Consumer Reports my car has crappy drum brakes in the rear.




      Watch out for the dealer leaving your shipping blocks on and your access panels loose.

      Hmm... trade for Portos?

      Hi-
      Just curios what intake and exhaust model numbers you are using. Also have you seen much of an increase in miles per gallon?

      I'm still waiting on actaul bolt on intakes before I go that direction.

      Check out page 1. I built my own intake and the exhaust is just a universal magnaflow muffler.

      I've only owned the car for 7 days so no MPG reports, but on my Golf 2.5L I gained 1-2 mpg and better throttle response.

      From what I've read the Neuspeed intake will work, but you need to relocate the PS reservoir.

      Quick question. The selling price of $17,000. That looks like a pretty good deal.

      Did the final selling price reflect any difference with the trade of the GTI or down payment? What was the original sticker price on the car?

      Sticker was ~$20k.

      The sale price was the sale price, no trade-in, downpayment, none of those sales tricks.

      I hate, hate dealers that do that!!! We will sell you this for XXXXX, oh wow that is a good price! You read through the sale order and you see price including 20% downpayment, no tax, fees, blah, blah.

      Tx, appreciate the info. Think I'll wait for a specific fit intake and exhaust.

      Def like the sound of yours. Good luck!
