    Love that blue!

    I've got a jb1 on my mk7 Gti and it's pretty fucking rad.

    For suspension id suggest vwr springs. I have those as well and they are great. The drop is perfect and they ride great!

    Do you have a NY Mets logo on the hatch? Random I know but I saw this exact car this AM with that sticker. Haha

    No no, not me.
    Are the VWR springs bouncy at all? That was my biggest grip with the H&R SS on my MK6. Are you running Map 1 on your JB1?

    Springs are perfect I feel, they are a little firmer than stock but don't feel bouncy at all.

    I'm running map 1 now because I got a used one when they were out of stock but no data cable. I'll eventually get a cable and up the boost a little.

    Power wise feels like stock power band but just more of it if that makes sense.

    If you are thinking of if it works on your GTI it does not. Audi actually has a s3 res delete pipe that fits on the R due to the same piping which is completely different from the GTI.

    Sweet ride! Still can't believe the LED tails aren't standard.

    The coilovers ended up coming in early so they went on last weekend. A tad stiffer that stock but definitely corners better now. Spacers came in yesterday from 42dd so Ill slap those on next.

    Quick update...

    I installed the Helix soundbox over the weekend and it sounds pretty amazing. Can't beat it for sub 250.

    I also updated my JB1 box to a JB4. Power delivery is much smoother with the JB4 and it makes it easier to add meth down the road.

    Nice, do they provide E85 maps for the MK7 R at all?
