So, you've done a full DPF/CAT delete then? For off-road use only, of course...

The stock pipe going over the rear beam is still in place (exhaust flap is gone), it was simply cut and added on after it came back down over the beam. The stock muffler fortunately uses all the exhaust hangers available under the car, so there are plenty of places to hang the second outlet.

Fits like a glove! No struggle, snug, cradles nicely over. Totally worth the money. Lifetime warranty.

Actually holds dirt and water.

I sold the monster oem, paid for the weather tech and pocketed $150 on top of it. Bought me a free block heater I need to install.

It's the same. Not sure what's different besides price and name.

You sold a set of Monster Mats for $300.00+? Can you let me know who bought them? I have a bridge that I want to sell...

Yes, technically the car is going to be doing some autocross

Hello,

Although I'm no longer a TDI owner, I thought you might like to see how a set of powdercoated gunmetal gray Nogaro wheels look on a Mk7 Golf body:

Before...


After...








I think I like it! I shared some details at https://stealthgti.com/2018/08/04/mo...gunmetal-gray/.

First oil change on my '15 GSW. 9860 miles on the car. First, I fail to see what the big deal is regarding oil changes on the EA288. Is it harder than an ALH? Yes. Harder than a B4? Maybe not. And it's easier than an A3 if you use the sludge fighter spin on filter.

Job went smoothly. I pulled the A/C harness (I think that's what it is) out of the way and used the IDParts funnel. Didn't get oil on any of the hoses or harnesses. Belly pan came off and back on easily. I wonder how long the insulation is going to last, however.

My car is 2 months shy of its 4th birthday. 10K miles in 4 years isn't very much. I think I'd already passed 100K miles on IBW by the time it was 4 years old.

Bummer with kerma, you can't get the true benefits of a deleted ride you gave up on the 2010.

IBW probably didn't spend the first almost 3 years sitting in a time out in a stop sale hold & then when finally on the road, didn't have to compete with IBW for your driving attention.

Right on both counts. I've driven to NC, upstate NY, and now in NYC in the last month. All in IBW. Old habits die hard.
