Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

Price, adjustability, “keeps warranty,” and removable and can sell it later.

Plus with the jb4 I can control meth.

Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

Cool new vehicle, teat drove a automatic alltrack and liked it, 350whp sound awesome.  I would have to get the manual transmission, look forward to your mods.

Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

Thanks.  This is my second ever automatic and I went this route because 1. The SEL trim doesn’t have manual and 2. The dsg is a better transmission for the MK7. I replaced the clutch in the GTI and I don’t want to do that again.

Today I installed my golf r wheels. The car will be lowered shortly. Very similar to the Aero Sports, except in 19s and are lightweight.

Think my next car might be an Alltrack in Great Falls Green and the Marrakesh Brown interior. Yum.

Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

The Marrakech interior is so nice. Maybe I’ll find a set for cheap.

Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

A good friend has a New Gulf R, I was surprised when I saw an auto transmission on his car, his first ever. He explained the auto is the way to go, went for a ride, it was awesome.
What tire sidewall size are you going to with the new wheels ?

Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

Those wheels will look great, but you have got to drop that thing. It looks like a Touareg.

Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

I'm ordering springs tomorrow. Found the Eibachs for $208 shipped and going to see if one of the MK7 group vendors can match it.
