    Cold air intake

    I made this mod at 136,000 miles, I have put 10k on it with no issues. The revo brand I bought I very well engineered and doesn’t throw CEL or other lights , have had zero issues with it. I also installed a gfb dv+ at the time as well. Gives a nice turbo sound when you put the power down

    MkV wheel/tire fitment guide

    Thanks a mil for that much appreciated so if I changed from the stock wheel the option I have for team dynamics pro race wheel is 8 inch width and offset of 45 so I think the only difference is half inch more width and lose 6 on the offset versus standard monza wheel, presume that would be ok?
