      Spoke to Ohlins USA months before I bought them. Rep mentioned correct part number for Golf Rs is VWSMT10, and NOT VWSMI10 (as listed on ECS).

      They said they only recently brought some sets over to the US, after interest expressed at Wookies In the Woods, where they gave out one free set (lucky bastard! lol).

      This is the one..

      Cant wait to get them!
      Makes perfect sense and I found out the same thing with my new setup. I tried 70 front and 60 rear and the rear was too soft, changed to 80 rear and it's perfect now. Granted my dampers are different, but linear spring rate is spring rate no matter the brand of spring so at least that part is comparable.

      Replaced an o2 sensor in my aem wideband, oil change motul 300v, and installed stop tech rear slotted rotors to match the slotted gyro disc fronts. If I can get motivated I’ll try and install a co2 charge cooler set up

      I wrapped my door clips and lined the edges of my door panels with tesa tape to chase down some rattles. It made a surprising change to the interior.

      Made a video on making my DRLs stay on full brightness at night. Super super easy mod.

      Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9dzMullMA4

      After taking apart some DRLs for projects in the past, I needed a new set of DRLs to run. Someone sold me a faulty set of DRLs so I had to piece together some ones I had previously taken apart. I also had to work around an electrical issue which wasn't allowing my left DRL to go full daytime brightness. A bit of a pain in the butt but I do have them working flawlessly now. Honestly, they're crazy bright!

      I'm gonna have to just make my own build thread instead of posting in here all the time.
