2010 GTI DSG Autobahn CSG .

I’ve been lazy to put this info, finally I took the time to do so and share with you all.
My experience with the car is been nothing but rewarding, for what it offers before and after mods. It’s one of the best all around cars, the money could buy me & for its car segment.
P.S :I Still have the car mags when I got it, posters, etc.

Slowly But Surely.

When it comes to the flash is been faultless, no complaints. They might not have the marketing machinery of other more followed,culted and publicized tuners, but my experience is been good and I’ve been able to obtain answers from them when I needed them. Willing to try new products from them and open to try some other tuners as well.
Revo SPS switcher.
This little piece of plastic makes your life ultimately easier when you go for oil change-stock like, different octane (fun) and the wifey wants to use the car - Kill mode
AWE D.P unless you have a leak, indeed this part gives no CEL
AWE hoses
AWE TOP
S3 IC
Modshack intake. Quiet with similar results of a more expensive options

Although it never happened that way. then, I thought to mod it by season’s needs, that route didn’t work either.

At this point I study:
-Get a DSG reflash in order to disable the kick down & faster shifting

-Water meth if my route eventually wouldn't include a bigger turbo, still seems to work fine with it as well.

Too much GTI'ness for my taste.

Image"]Image

Image

Image





Lame,ergonomic but empty

Image







Def.much better.

Image

Self explanatory.
When you change the stock handle,the new one looks simply better.
Image

Yes,you're right,toilet paper,just for you! This was an impro' since the magnetic tip didn't work as planned,I did some ghetto type"anti-lose screw kit" Not that shitty,right!

Image

Tighten it macho style & you will not lose the screw inside the glove box compartment.

Image

Sweet!!

I wasn't feeling my old plaid insert.

Image

I decide to give a try on the shinny black one this time..

Image

Image

Definitely much better.This one enhance the rear badge without add additional color to the mix,sleeker.

Image

Image

I'm almost done with the rear of the car,next will be the reflectors and some layers to match the LED tails... :thumbsup:

And here we are...

The idea was simple: create a closer look bet. The dark LED tails and the lower reflectors not regretting their purpose (light tinted layer). After seen the results in some others GTI, I decide to give a try...



Image



Left side,layer applied.
Image

Without layer
Image

Layer on
Image

*Third break light layer,not sure yet.

The outcome is better than expected;my main concern was how stiff would feel the car but actually feels smooth & somehow lighter:you can get more speed taking or during turns.
The front unconfident(nervous) roll is gone,waiting to test it in the rain to see how much planted the car feels and if the rear does the job to still slide the car like the rear normally does.I don't feel I lost rotation or balance however I have less wheel-spin. Overall I'm happy with my sways set up:hard/soft.

Finally installed!

In essence replacing the bigger line rubber gasket in the windshield area for the Modshack's lower profile allows cooling air once the vehicle is in motion and out hot air when the vehicle is sitting. The mod is totally reversible.

Image

Image

Image

Conti',Pirelli again.Never had issues in the first set,decided to give them a try again.The harder compound feels better for a more aggressive driving over the DWS,just a tad slower in the snow:good decent all season.
