Thank you! I am thinking you have me confused with a different car. I’ve never towed with this car....Yet, IMHO- elegant and sharp GSW with the R mods. Respect.
Plus- the Euro hitch, and the towing pic- CLEAN!
And so nice to see another USEITTRACK not afraid to tow!
Nick, how did you find that Uhaul to pull behind you? How much weight total, do you recall?
Was it before or after the turbo upgrade?
I'm looking to do an APR1, or possibly an IS20 for more grunt towing a trailer on a bucket list trip to AK,
and wonder what you discovered with the extra power, how much needed or not, on the weight of your tows?
Thanks! I got the calipers, caliper carriers, lines and dust shields together from someone on Facebook marketplace. I just cleaned them really well and painted them with a black ceramic paint. They were looking a little rough. Then I got the pads and rotors from FCP Euro.
Very nice, where did you get the R brakes?
Thank you!Niiiiiiiice!! :thumbup:
Thank you! Good choice!Love this build. I just bought my GSW today. 2019 6spd 4motion. I am coming from a MK6R and have been lamenting that the R Estate didnt make its way to the US. Where did you purchase your R bumper and valence from?
I also want to swap the seats out. When doing the swap, did you find any issues with the heated seats? I am planning on going with GTI seats.
Thank you! I saw the video on how to do the alignment, but I didn’t do it. My shifting is smoother now with this than it was with the stock shifter. I believe mine may have been misaligned to begin with. I should probably give it a go and see if it gets any better.Sick. Those are the kind of tasteful and subtle mods that put a build firmly into the win category. Question, did you have to re-align your shifter after installing the short shift bracket?
Nik,A couple of small updates:
I added a 24mm Whiteline Rear Sway Bar, ECS Titanium lug bolts, and Golf R brakes with EBC red-stuff pads.
Thank you! I appreciate it!Nik,
Thank you for sharing. Your build is tasteful with a beautiful works in progress.
Please share your impression of your 24 mm RSB. Typical upgrade is 22 mm for fear of snap oversteer.
Believe you are in the Moses Lake area. Have business travel through Eastern WA (with my 2019 VW Alltrack SEL M/T) on a regular basis. PM me if you are open to coordinating grabbing a bite.
