      You have to be disciplined in how much stuff you collect, for sure.

      Two things:

      1) The homes in the areas Vad is searching are typically of this same era—this isn’t the only house he’s sent me...

      A shirt AND pants? Damn. Y'all are strict.

      I can make it.

      I've lived with a one car garage for 10+ years. It's not ideal--I'd like more storage, and the width makes it a bit tough to work on anything. But it's better than what I had before, which was street...

      Yep.

      I just find nothing interesting about this. I'm sure it'll be quick, set lots of great times, and be easy to drive quickly around a track. And I just don't care.

    6. Poll: Buy New Car & Mod Immediately vs Just buy a faster car.

      There are plenty of cars that have a great platform waiting to be unleashed, but the manufacturer either cost cuts or dumbs down the platform for various reasons (cost savings; emissions; keeping it...

      Wow. That's terrifying. I'm very, very glad you survived with such (proportionally?) moderate injury and no broken bones (!!!).

      Thanks for having the courage to share this cautionary tale with us....

      -Two GTI's
      -Two Jetta GLI's (Mk1/Mk2)

      Those are my only repeats.
    9. An unexpected COVID-19 purchase. Or, how do we now have two American cars? (C6 content within)

      There may be some Journey played from time to time. Especially on approach to 16Volt’s house, while wearing the gifted ‘coyote howling at moon’ t shirt. His neighbors really dig it, based on their...

      At least as implemented in this unit (Kenwood Excelon), it’s great so far. Quick to connect once it boots, minimal lag, and the sound quality is surprisingly good.

      My other half bought one of...

      Given all the other issues, I’d be exploring whatever lemon law may be available to you in your province. I wouldn’t want to own this thing longer term. A shame, really.
    12. An unexpected COVID-19 purchase. Or, how do we now have two American cars? (C6 content within)

      Well, I got one of three projects done today that I’d hoped to complete. But it’s a big one in terms of usability and enjoyment.

      I served the circa 2005 head unit an eviction notice.

      Anyone who isn’t pissed off that their *3 month old* new SUV that was $80,000+ (CDN) and is riddled with dents on the top sides not caused by hail is a unique individual.

      I really enjoyed the Long Way Round, and completed E1 of Long Way Up a couple of nights ago. I’m really interested to see how things unfold over the 130 days (!) of the trip they chronicle.

      Also—I...

      Al Beadle?

      Do it. You won’t regret it (other than perhaps the energy required to cool it).

      I’ve done a similar commute in a Mk7 GTI for 5 years and not regretted it one day. Great in all weather, with DSG and the DCC dampers it’s comfortable when I want to just creep through stop and go,...

      They have to prove that the mod directly caused that issue, though.

      I knew someone who had a BMW dealer deny warranty coverage on a transmission due to a customer having installed a set of...

      Magnusson-Moss doesn't support that statement. Most mods should not compromise the warranty. As stated above, I've done a number of modifications to my GTI, and have never had a warranty claim denied...

      All the tuning Tesla can do with that car cannot overcome the fact that there is just a LOT of mass. Also, every report I've read of people driving an M3P on track calls out the brakes as being a...

      For me, it's about making the car what I want it to be, and/or upgrading factory-fitted items that dumb down the overall package.

      I've had the GTI nearly 5 years now, and the mod list has been...
