    TT/S3 alloy arms & swivels Thread

    You will also need new tie rod and ball joint nuts, since the aluminum parts need the flanged nuts. WHT000785 i believe works for both the outer tie rod and the ball joint. I just got the front spindles on and it is a nice difference. Steering ratio is a tad quicker and the car feels more nimble.

    Bumpy ride

    I am also experiencing the same, but with mild lowering springs (H&R OE Sport, 0.75" drop on 2006-07 cars, 0.20" on 2008+) I owned a 2012 GTI prior to this, and that car was much softer than the 2007. I don't remember the stock 2007 having such a bumpy ride, but I do remember that the bumps felt...

    The bored at home / COVID19 / Working from home thread

    My company has been work-from-home since March 20th...good riddance as I take the bus to work (unusual for a Los Angeles resident) and I've been seeing even the bus get emptier and emptier. Hopefully this teaches people to (1) take sanitation more seriously, (2) think more about the importance...

    Shifter side-to-side piece stuck

    Hi. The side-to-side lever on top of the shifter tower is stuck. Not like it's not moving, but there's not enough room for me to get the piece out. Any advice?

    Low-and-soft

    The objective here is to have a setup that is at least 0.75" lower than stock (2007) and can soak up the smaller bumps well. I am willing to give up a bit of handling for the mild drop and soft ride. Is Koni yellows and Eibach springs the way to go? I don't want to do stock height and DG...

    How much worse is your winter MPG?

    I don't think it's the thermostat. I do keep an eye on the coolant temp gauge. It hits quarter of the way up by the time I get to my highway on-ramp and midpoint a few minutes thereafter, as it had always done. The 3 fuel-ups where it was mostly 2+ hours on the highway were 28 MPG or so, so I...

    How much worse is your winter MPG?

    I'm trying to see how much of a drop is to be expected in the colder months. I live in Los Angeles where it hardly ever drops below 50 Fahrenheit, but noticing a significant drop. (2007 FSI, 6MT, United Motorsports stage 1 tune) From June (when I got tuned) to end of November, I was getting...

    My GF doesn't coast while driving

    I've been telling her, if she can read their license plate clearly, then you are too close. It's getting a little better. Before, I could read the month and year of registration!

    My GF doesn't coast while driving

    The driver that makes me the most nauseous would be my father. He coasts, but when he's on either brakes he's stomping on 'em. Which is weird, because he used to drive my brother's old Impreza whose throttle pedal went from zero to 100 if you didn't get on it with the grace of a ballerina. I...

    My GF doesn't coast while driving

    I try not to be a couch quarterback when someone else is driving. I'm not the perfect driver and neither is anyone else I've met. However, for all the faults I've seen while driving, this one drives me up the wall the most. My GF, when driving, does not coast. She is either on the gas or the...
