    Happy 200K miles!

    My 2008.5 MKV just passed 200K miles. It's been quite a journey and I'm pretty confident that no-one will ever own this car other than me. I've been tuned since 10k miles, stage 2 since 20k miles and K04 since 71k miles. I would say that mechanically my car has been pristine, but due to...

    K04 GTI vs. EFR WRX (video)

    While driving to the beach, my cousin and I got several good runs in. Each time I hit it when I started to hear his turbo spool since we couldn't really hear the honks over his exhaust. He was babying it, shifting slowly and at 6K rpms. He has a fully built engine and transmission, I'm...

    Car got hit, guess how much it will cost to fix.

    My car got backed into while it was sitting in a parking lot by a 16 year old that has had his license for only 2 weeks. His parents want to try and pay out of pocket, but I think it's going to be a lot more expensive than they think. What do you guys think, how much is the estimate going to...

    Focus ST vs MS3 and WRX? tL_vwSMcnl0 This little gem of a video just came out and decided this must be talked about. In my opinion, even the Mazdaspeed 3 is better looking than this car.

    Power Steering randomly kicks off...

    As the title says, my power steering randomly decides to stop working. The steering wheel light comes on in the dash (red in color) and i'm stuck with no power steering. If i'm lucky, it will kick back on in a few seconds, but sometimes it will last for a few hours. My guess is there is a...
