  2. MKV GTI
    Hey Everyone! This is my first post so please bear with me haha. So I have decided to get myself a 6MT 2009 MKV GTI with 64k miles on it. Delivery will probably be sometime around next weekend and I have been doing a lot of research. Something I couldn't find is what to do immediately once I...

    Hi guys, So I'm currently in the market for new aftermarket wheels, and have been eyeing some old corvette wheels as they are going for very low prices (like $150-$200 a set). They're typically 17 x 8.5's or 17 x 9/9.5's, and I'm trying to figure out what would be the best tire size to put on...

    I took the whole subframe off to install the front sway bar, how bad did I mess up?
  5. MKV GTI
    i have talked to a few buddies at vw and they said if I hone it and sleeve it I'm screwed I just thought I would ask on here to get some other opinions of people that have done it and their stories good or bad. I know it is normal for about 1/2 qt/oil change but I went through 5 in a 4.9 qt...

  11. MKV GTI
    First of all: DAMN. Car has no acceleration above 2500RPM in all gears. Idles at 750. No CEL. Only codes pulled were misfires in all four cylinders and a turbo under-boost. Codes were cleared pending their return. The exhaust sounds like its obstructed by something. Around 45MPH if i put my foot...
