The Wagon had Autotech springs and Bilstein TC shocks/struts. I got the springs from a guy that bought Wagon springs by mistake for his sedan. As for the shocks/struts, I had those laying around from the Bora so I installed them to replace the worn stock ones. Ride was decent, although the car wasn't harsh over bumps. If I'd kept the Wagon I would have invested in some better dampers and maybe a decent rear sway bar.

Thanks, I have def noticed the difference with the wavetrac and the 3.16

no more peg legging around corners... (spinning the inside tire) it just PULLS & PULLS & PULLS... its actually quite difficult to get it to squeal the tires upon acceleration. which is a good thing.

the 3.16 ring & pinion makes it so that RPMs are down about 2-300ish RPM in 5th gear.

I am basically one notch lower on the rpm scale in the cluster going any given speed. its nice. will have fuelly in my signature to keep track of my mileage. havent had to fill it yet since the trip home from picking it up.

Leo819, the PO must have been beating on it across PA for it to be at 1/4 tank at 400 miles. I had to refill by about 500-520, didnt track it because I didnt know when it was reset. so far its tracking at about where my Golf did for this tank & mileage.

Thats the plan.

Today the wagon got the green racepipe and the single tapped intake manifold that was on the golf.

The Golf got the silver double tapped racepipe and non tapped manifold that was on the wagon.

wagons boost valve is disconnected at the moment. not sure if itll need reconnected. gonna keep an eye on spiking and sustained boosts... but with RC3, Im really not that worried. the golf was well contained.

Wagon came with the Wavetrac installed. also has a 3.16 Ring & pinion in it which reduces RPMs in ALL gears. fun fun!

Oof, dunno about the cost, but hopefully the color would match perfectly. I have seen some re-sprayed front ends on vortex that don't.... its quite a shame. Love the golf front ends on wagons though.

But why did they freakin have to make the silverstone and platinum grays different! Ugh. (my jetta is platinum).

Those wheels are choice though (19" s4's?)

I wouldn't do it. Although I like the Golf nose, and the headlights are much better, I like keeping OE paint on the car as long as possible, especially on the nose. And the Jetta front end has grown on me. Just my .02.

No idea what it would cost to color match it but Jeremy would know www.piperscollision.com . Still think it would be more cost effective (i.e. cheaper) to run the reps though.

Good choice. There are sooo many reflex Mk4s, it would be dumb not to find an OE painted front end for yourself.
