Any interest in a Parrot CK3000 Evolution kit, SW101 steering wheel control box and QCVWS-3 (tm) harness. Removed from my '07 GTI with multi function steering wheel.

It is essentially a hands free bluetooth kit with full integration of the multi function steering wheel.

See this link for details: http://www.quickconnectproducts.com/Find/VWsteer2.htm

Asking $50 or best offer.

Post up or PM me.

Thanks for looking.

I was at Stoneridge Mall last night but didn't bother looking for the meet. Saw a bunch of cars though driving around the mall parking lot looking for the meet. I figured the cops would come out and break it up early anyway.

AAAAAnd this is why I didn't go. I'm not interested in driving all the way up there during rush hour to watch a bunch of idiots and morons (or both) stand next to a bunch of played cars I've seen 84 times before. Oh yeah... AND attract tons of attention from the Police... Yep my kinda Friday night!

































































NOT!

Not too bad, going to Thunderhill on 24th :wink:

It finally feels like summer here in peninsula..
Once I finish the brakes on the FR-S I'm going to try and do one track day every quarter. I figure I'll start at Thunder Hill because they have the most weekend track days and I need to learn this car still! Only one AutoX under my belt at this point.

I just ordered 17x9s and 255 RS3s in time for the next few autoX. KW V3s will follow in another paycheck or so, then brakes, then TRACK!

Nice Blaine! The fr-s is a perfect track car even from stock (there was an automatic one at my last Laguna Seca event with just mild mods and that car was fast!). Hope you'll enjoy it :thumbsup:

I'll be going to Laguna Seca on Oct 21th (Sunday) with NCRC, wanna join that one?

I remember that Stoneridge meet always gets shut down by the PD. I remember about 4 years ago the exact same thing happened. Anyways it's good to see some faces but missed some over at Sbux's meet this past Sunday.

I have seen that video. It's incorrect, they use taller wheels/tires for the widest tire and that's why it nets a slower lap time... the car only has 200HP and 151TQ, increasing the gearing with that tall of a tire kills the car...

The 245/40s I'm gonna run are literally the same height as the stock 215/45, just like 2 inches WIDER!!!

Daym Blaine! What pads did you order, I'm about to put an order in for Hawks HP+. I have my wheels coming but not as wide as yours. I'm going 225.

Why does everyone think when I'm driving down the road that I wanna race them in this stupid thing. I drive super slow too non aggressive.

Random but does anyone have the interior to a GTI. I've been playing with the idea of changing mine out for quite sometime but just random thought. Also another random one does anyone know know where a good place to lookg for knives? I might be looking at some benchmades or a way to treat them since my knife looks like it's getting dull / dirty.

You should get wider than 225, I might push it out to 255 with my next set. What width wheels are you getting?

I haven't done anything with the brakes yet but I'll prob do HP+ front and HPS rear. Not interested in changing pads for track.
