      As for myself, I changed my spark plugs over the weekend, (first time doing it myself in this car). Felt good that all went smoothly.
      well....this is technically our 'garage'


      The Hyundai Santa Fe and Sonata are owned by my GF's parents which is where we store the R in the Winter.

      Here are my Winer cars:




      2016 Golf R, 44K miles almost paid off, Sunday car
      2016 Sportwagen, 80K miles, currently on storage mode until we pay it off this year then it's going for sale. Heather doesn't like keeping her cars beyond 90K miles
      2015 Ford Escape, 275K miles, fleet vehicle I got for $500 2 years ago which is Winter car only, about 6K a year
      2019 Hyundai Ioniq, $75 a month lease, 12K miles a year, 36 months and it's in my driveway year round but it's ONLY a commuter since it's maximum range is 136 miles and if it's below freezing and the heat is on, it gets 65 miles of range so it never leaves the city but since we over-produce with our solar panels, it's a fantastic daily driver. That's not a typo, $75 a month, It was $99 a month w/ $0 down but I put some money down to offset the monthly payment.

      So we do have a Hyundai in the house but purely due to the insane lease price. I keep threatening to sell the Golf R but I love it so much.

      I regret selling my MK6 Golf R as well So I feel you there. I think value will go even higher on MK7s once the MK8s come out and kill the manual transmission and then MK9 goes full hybrid. We'll see but I love the car and it took me 4 years to get everything about the car just the way I want it.

      ^^This I got rid of my 2016, hoping to get the MK8. Watched the VW reveal live on youtube, threw up in my mouth when I saw it, and bought a MK7.5R a few days later. Seriously, every-time VW updated the Golf I really liked the progression. The MK8 is the first time I think it looks hideous. First time I essentially bought the same car twice as well.

      +1 on this. Iíve had so many great transportation tools in my life but I think Iíve hit the sweet spot with my 17 DSG R. Itís an early Unicorn model with the last of the analog dashs, beautiful, frameless, thin rear view mirror without camera, no park distance warts on the bumpers, spare tire, low profile Euro head rests and several nice OBD11 coding mods to silence the seatbelt alarm, door alarm & especially the soundakator. The best way to explain it is - the best features of all the cars Iíve owned rolled into one. Iím going to need a few burial plots because theyíre going to burry me in the R. It will be a quick ride to heaven (or wherever Iím going)!

      Only working 3 days in office and 2 from home, but decided to use today's wfh day at a local shop and got an IE Downpipe installed. Hoping my intercooler and intake all arrives this week and can go on next week during another wfh session.

      I love these little vids of street sparring matches. None of the porsche guys in my town ever want to play a little...but the STIs are always interested.

      New tires today so a quick wash to get the grease off. 2015 still holding in there with only 38K miles. Tires are Bridgestone Potenza S007A. I really like this lighting; hides all the scratches!

      I'm glad I'm not the only one it's taking 4 years to get my R the way I want.

      Holy sh|t. This is a great idea! I think I might ACTUALLY DEMAND I be buried in my R. Screw a casket.

      You know those are not the recommended spark plugs per IE, right?

      When i asked them they said they will be fine. I donít track the car its my daily car. I just wanted to add some more power. I travel 80 highway miles to work and back everyday. So this makes my every ride a lot more fun

      they will be fine, there are people who are running stage 2 and even stage 3 with stock plugs and never had an issue. seems to be more issues with different spark plugs rather than stock or rs7 ones.

      Must be a nation wide thing. I tried to give the beans to 2 different porsche guys and they just pretend im not there. Prolly told their buddies at the country club that some poor guy in a golf wanted to race their sport car. I try to load them as they happen.

      Ditto. I have tried so hard to get P-Cars to play around in my area. They ignore me every time. I feel like a lot of people around here buy them but are not really ďcar peopleĒ. So they donít care to play around and have no clue why we put quad exhaust tips on a minivan.

      It's certainly fun to take a care to a shop and just get everything done at once but taking a year off from modding then doing Billsteins was awesome it was like driving a brand new car.

      True .

      iím doing this as well with KWĎs right now. The ride quality is already 10 times better than OEM struts with lowering springs.

      I brought my car to the shop and installed the front along with super pro sway bar and links and super pro strut mount tops. I watched your video and an interesting point that stood out to me was the fact you said it took the mechanic 11 hours to do the job. At first I thought to myself "thatís way too long", but after having done it myself and taking 10 hours to do the front alone, I donít think he was too far off. (I do take my Time though and had never done sway bar end links before). Hopefully thatíll make you feel a little bit better about the install cost. .

      I'm having major issues with the set up I just installed though... The camber puts the sway bar end links WAY too close to the interior wheel well chassis. Iím getting major damage-inducing contact. Super pro wants you to mount the passenger side to the front of struts the sway bar tab, but there is no way this is going to work as I noticed VW scalloped out a little room in the wheel well for the sway bar being attached to the back of the strut tab (for the passenger side specifically). iím going to have to mod the tab to move the link point inward so there is no contact. What a headache. iíll probably do a post on it a little bit later, complete with video, so other people can avoid the issue.

      Do you mind sharing your wheel specs on the R? I like the rotary look in silver.
