    Long Term Test- Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+

    Final Update! Time to bring this thread to a close :) It ended up taking longer than I expected and these tires are no longer a "new" design, but I can't just leave the ending open lol Had the new tires fitted yesterday. If you don't want to read any further about my thoughts, opinions, and...

    Wheel Spacers?

    Thinking about going 10mm front and 15mm rear as well with the same wheels. Looking forward to the update!

    Battery Replacement

    Randomly clicked this thread a few days ago just out of curiosity to see what everyone was using. Irionically, I tried to start the car yesterday and just clicked. Wouldn't even take a jump. Trickle charged it for 24hrs and still just clicked. Decided to try an AGM for the first time. Optima...

    Long Term Test- Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+

    Just ordered another set of AS3+ ;) Considered going Pilot Sport 4s for fun since my yearly mileage is so low now, but I still need cold weather performance. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    26k mile transmission fluid change

    I changed mine at 60k miles and it looked similar. I wasn't having any shifting problems and any improvement after was probably placebo even though it "felt" little smoother when cold. I also have the DG Sigma 6 and love it.

    Airlift 1000 Install DIY

    Just noticed this thread got bumped. Everything is still great with the bags 2.5yrs later. They have been on the car for ~20k miles and appear to be in great shape. Ironically I only towed the Scamp with them installed on the Golf for about a year until we picked up a 2018 Tiguan and now we...

    Mostly city driving? What kind of MPg you get?

    My last three full city tanks were 35.4, 38.9, 38.4 according to fuelly. Range was 475-520 on those tanks iirc. Most of the roads on my commute are 35-55mph and I don't flog it the whole time. Also mine is tuned/deleted so maybe not the best comparison. I also use a Frostheater anytime the...

    Tire recommends - '17 Porto alloy wheels

    I'm nearing 35k on my AS3 + and I've been very happy with them. I haven't noticed the symptoms you are experiencing and mine are close to 3-4/32nds (I did a lot of towing with them). Will likely replace them with another set around 40-45k as I have really enjoyed them. There are better tires if...

    Planning on purchasing a SportWagen soon, towing question...

    Check this out ;) Depending on the tongue weight the JSW will be able to pull 1000lb no problem. Stopping shouldn't be too bad either, but electric brakes would feel a lot better. Not sure about the hitch from the video, but there are...
