    Ouch. $3900 isn’t a bad offer though, that’s more than I got for my 00 R. Is it gonna get bought back and parted out or sent to the JY?  I’d be interested in a few parts off it if you part it out. 

    I took the rear spoiler and roof racks off of it but that's it. It's going to the JY. Not buying back, I don't want to deal with it.

    Shit, what happened Mike?

    My ex bought it from me and had 2 people hit it in 24 hours while parked. Both insurance companies totalled it, she's taking the $3900 from the second company.. progressive offered $2600. Still reasonable tho

    yeah the 034 insert is hit or miss it seems. most of the people though on the vw forums are pretty dumb and either dont admit to even installing it themselves, dont recall torquing it properly, or having the car loaded and yielding it tight while loaded... (i know that isnt the case with you Adam haha - volvospeed users are rocket scientists compared to most of vortex)

    Vortex members still argue over whether the ea113 FSI 2.0 had a timing belt or a chain.. the engine is timed with a belt and the cams are timed with a chain (exhaust drives the intake). 

    That forum is full of complete idiots. And Audizine is even worse

    Not that you were getting the best mpg in the v70r or m3 but id be curious what that mk6R would get at 'stage2+'

    What is stage2+? Still stock turbo but full bolt on's?

    you are right, i dont want to know what you paid haha - i drove the mk6 r when i bought my car. in Nov. 2015 - a low mileage mk6 R, no mods and CPO was the same price as a new loaded mk7 gti... 

    It's the 3" intake, full turbo back exhaust, apr HP fuel pump, and tuning. (Also has switchable modes, and no lift). Should be good for 365hp/370tq on 93. And 392/407 on 100 race fuel. Can switch between 4 tunes. 

    I'll leave it at that for this year and probably get a Haldex controller and a few little things first before bigger turbo. 

     

     

    Let's just say I paid somewhere in the region of what a 2010gti sells for with average miles... I'm happy.

    How much for my old R? Lol

    2k For vs people. I put on a new driveshaft, viscous coupler, new nivomats, new control arms 2 weeks ago. New swaybar links,  and fixed some other shit. Leaks some oil.. Cam seal. Otherwise a good daily. Comes with both sets of wheels and roof racks.

    Im a millenial - one day i love it, the next day i wish i bought a mk7 r, the next day i wish i kept my beater 98v70t5m (but im not a millenial in the sense that my parents pay for it) so i got something in the middle... lol really its the monthly payment that just sucks. but im at 0.9% so nobody is getting rich off of me and i only owe another 10k on it.

    just rolled over to 37k miles yesterday - stage 1 tune, some clubsport s parts, lowering springs/spacers/dogbone insert, wheels and good tires and its a monster honestly (i have the factory lsd and big brakes too already)

     

    Cool. I bought mine for cash. I hate payments.  You don't want to know what I paid.. might make you cry. There's a back story to it though.

    My son is pulling my red car out of the warehouse in a week or 2 and putting it in the garage to resurect it... It will be back by summer.. I'm kinda happy about that. He got a really good new job and he's ready to get into it.

     

    Maybe I'll make the Ithaca meet this year. I have to start vaping though.. gotta fit in with the cargo shorts vw crowd

    And you were the one who warned me of APR... ;)

    Super fun car! Will you have it on the track? I love my mk7 gti with some goodies on it! :)

     

    Yeah apr got their bullshit handled.. I think all that is settled. I'm pretty psyched to have a low mileage mint car for a change. 

    Yeah I already have days at mid Ohio and Nelson ledges booked.

     

    How's your mk7 been?

    Is this going to be both your daily and track toy, Mike?

    Looks good!

    Yep. Getting down to one car with low miles and lots of performance. Tired of having 2 cars with a combined total of over a 1/2 million miles on them.. one is always sitting.  Tired of oil puddles, tired of creaking plastic... One car to do it all.

    Ok.

    That's what I said about my beater Veloster Turbo. 
    But... shit happens. 
    Pierce Street Downpipe, TurboSocks Intercooler Resonator Delete, Cone Filter,  SXTH Intake Breather Delete Kit,  eBay Catch Can
    Pierce Motorsports Rear Torsion Bar, GodSpeed Springs ,TurboSocks Rigid Collars, 15mm - 20mm Akata Spacers
    ProSport Boost gauge, Grams wideband

    Still needs a real intake and tune. Then I'm done... I swear. 

    I love when Veloster turbo guys want to race me in the M3. I just laugh and keep driving 70. 

     

    Oh when did you buy a Veloster, Chris?

    Thanks Mike

     

     

    they are tanks.  Our 05 sequoia is still running well also

     

     

    been traveling a bunch for work which is OK.  Oldest is driving the saffron around 

     

    you guys get snow yet? 

     

     

    Nah, nothing worth noting, some flurries. Put the snow tires and driveshaft on Emma's R this weekend.. figured it was time.  Mine had the DS on it all year. 

    My son put the red S70 in storage with a burnt valve last feb. he's deciding what to do with it..

    nothing else really new... same old deal every day..
