Used my VCDS for the first time
Reset the ESC light which promptly came back on.
I guess I need to recalibrate it

Nice bike! Glad to see that someone else here not only rides but rides a 2 stroke.

That is nice.....how many more inches of lift did this give you? Do you have part numbers.....I would like to do this to my 02' Jetta.

Finally got a RossTech Cable and discovered what my waining mileage and slow car was all about. My MAF is shot! Unplugged it and not a stinking thing changed in how it drove (slow) except it threw a default air measurement on VAGCOM and drove exactly the same. Well that explains why my mileage has been falling to 40mpg over that past year and it can't get out of its own way.

I'm hoping that brings some pep back to her step and restores to fuel economy.

Looks to have settled at 2". 1" from the springs, 1" from the lift kit. Without the trailer hooked up there is a bit of a rake to the front.


Moog 81134 (v6 front springs)
Moog 81055 (wagon rear springs)
Bilstein TC shock 19-029429 x2
Bilstein TC strut 22-045744 x2
Evolution 1" lift kit


Tires are 205/70-15 Yokohama Geolanders which are about 1.5" taller than stock.

Sand blasted and painted my spare Mk4 subframe today. Had to weld one of the sway-bar clamp nuts back in place, and then ran a tap through all of the threaded holes. Ugh...those old rubber mounts were a bear to remove.
It was cheap, and it cleaned up OK. I'll snap new mounts in, and then install this in the Beetle when I change the steering rack.

Installed
Eibach 8575.680 - PRO-SYSTEM-PLUS


Eibach 5.81340K - PRO-ALIGNMENT Kit

kit comes with springs damper, front and rear anti roll bars. The alignment kit allows camber/caster changes.



Everything went together nicely too.



It lowered the car about an inch all around. was a bit of work to get the stock FSB out, because you have to lower the sub-frame, and learn some yoga when doing the job on jack-stands, but after 200kms with the new setup its causing many


something to be said about a matched set of components, even though its more $$$. very happy with the handling thus far.

Alignment feels spot on still, but i think ill take it in just to be sure. Anybody know an alignment shop that's familiar with the Eibach setups in southern ontario?

Replaced rear wheel hub. Turned out to have a frozen caliper too. A bit more work than expected but went well.

Winter shoes for the Jetta (Michelin X ice xi3) and the Golf got a new windshield. The Avus wheels feel so much lighter than my Long Beach especially turning at slow speeds.
