Correction...was tired last night when I posted and miscalculated . My GF wanted to go 200km and so that's what I was focusing on, didn't bother to look at the mph while at that speed ..Yes, I think it is still limited to 124, and that is plenty fast for me too

No tune yet...

Hi mxtdiguy!
Seems like a great deal in Mexico on those 2016 TDIs!
I am confused: why no add blue needed there?
That means these cars can't be imported/registered in USA?
Thanks, ML

Yes, unbelievably good deals on the few that are left.

I'm sure it would take an act of you know who to import one into the US, but I can and will drive mine up there for extended periods of time.

Not exactly sure why they eliminated the Adblue, because I have seen it for sale here.

You cannot get a Mexican title registered in the US if EPA (or Department of Transportation) has the model on a list of "approved" for USA sale vehicles. I admit that I do not know which law applies, but NO!! NO!! NO!!!

As I have stated on another post, it is like seeing a perfect surf and turf dinner (or fill in your favorite gourmet meal) sitting on a table, steaming with a bottle of wine next to it, on MARS! Made of that elusive material...Unobtainium!

Like my son says.. It sucks

Took it to the dealer this morning for an alignment and even after the 24mm lift everything was in the green except for the front right was a tiny bit toe out.

Loving the ride !

I passed another GSW TDi, and it sure looked low !

When I did my 1" lift they said everything should be fine still alignment wise. At 2" it would be out some. Glad you like it.

Where did you find the cool bicycle sticker for the rear?

How are the spacers holding up, where can these be purchased? The spring pads need replaced as well?

So far no issues at all. Just returned from a long trip with plenty of bumps, potholes etc.

I bought them from this vendor on ebay Germany:

https://www.ebay.de/itm/Hoherlegung-...sAAOSwR0JUTV2H

He claims to have credit with Spaccer, but I think it may be a backdoor way for them to sell more spacers at a discount. He will sell them for 30% less than directly from www.Spaccer.de

I ordered a total of four, but received six for some reason.

His English is not the best but he will follow through with the order.

Note that Spaccer custom makes spacers for the springs that they will be used on, so if they are going on gsw springs like I did, they will need a vin# for the car that matches the springs.

I didn't have to change anything up front, same upper spring seat.

The method I used for installing them was in the "McGyver" category, but it worked.

No reason to use Spaccers at the rear since there are much cheaper options there.
