  1. Golf VIII R
    There have been some threads talking about G-Locs, but their website is useless, and wanted to pulse the forum to see if anyone was aware of anything else that is available or about to be. TIA
  2. Brakes
    I just went to my local shop and they put on new brakes and rotors for me only on the rear. I there has been a small noise when breaking but i assume it’s the bedding process. Are these scratches normal part of the bedding process or is there something wrong?

Seemed to fix the problem. A week later right rear caliper seized. I replaced the caliper and the pads. Car...

  9. Golf VI R
    Well this was a fun discovery. I ordered a new set of pads and rotors for my MK6 R. I ended up going with APR Rotors (OE Replacement size) and EBC Red Pads.

  13. Passat (B7)
    Hi guys, I hope you're having a good day. I was thinking to change front brake rotors & pads, since it's vibrating while braking. I've checked so many options online and I'm a little bit confused. Can you guys recommend me a front brake set/combination for around $200? Thanks a lot!
  14. CC
    I bought my CC with about 75k miles on it. I had to soon after replace the brake pads and I did it at the dealer, so I’m guessing I’m running on the stock ones right now. I’ve only put in about 10-12k miles on these pads. They fade when braking hard and I read it’s a common issue. I wanna fix...

    One of the problems with very strong materials is that they’re hard to work with. Say, for instance, that you wanted to make a brake caliper out of titanium. Until now, that’s been nearly impossible, because milling all of the little channels from a titanium block has been impossible. Now...
