  • ^^^ All that being said, VW/Audi products are well built and have a lot of room to tune without issues. I've been following the various platforms and the major tuners for a couple of decades and as long as you use your head, I've seen tunes that ar…

  • I've been around VW's my whole life. I've only owned 2 other non-VW cars. I have done tons of research and have been in the 'scene' so to speak. I was going to go APR with my MK5, but never got around to it. At the time they needed to take the E…
  • I have a Clubsport S muffler enroute and I'd probably do an intercooler at a later date. I am just very weary of warranty denial so it'll be awhile before I go Uni. From all the research I gathered they aren't as aggressive as APR or the others, w…
  • Also with all due respect to Emlyn, VW is more Audi than Honda is Acura or Toyota is Lexus.
  • Mikeyb, thinking of going Unitronic in my 2017 GTi, both engine and DSG. What's your opinion? Right now I just picked up a Dinan piggyback tuning box for cheap (brand new $150). Waiting until she's broken in more for the Unitronic tune as it will…
  • 2018 VW's have a 6 year 72K bumper to bumper. That should alleviate the perceived issues with reliability. I say perceived, because it is. Regular maintenance and having it serviced by someone who knows how to work and diagnose them.
  • Based on you first sentence, that's a YES, because Philips tubes include many different manufacturers. To your specific ? about Heerlen tubes: Some people think there are. Personally, I think there are very subtle differences, but it's hard to a…
  • I'd start with a good tube pre-amp if you want to dabble in tubes.
  • That's a fair question and most of us have found our sweet spot in cables by experimenting. What do you feel comfortable paying? Not that wire quality is strictly dictated by $$. It follows for the most part, but like anything else there are ex…
  • Reminds me of the DSG vs. Manual transmission threads on a Volkswagen forum I frequent. Electronically controlled dual clutch manual vs. a human controlled single clutch manual. Exactly the same type of attitudes and responses as the cable debat…
  • The rumble can happen watching anything on cable/satellite TV. I experience it at times and it seems to be related to the broadcast signal and or the volume being too low. Did you try decreasing the bass from the remote? Don't notice it when play…
  • A Doro sighting! Sweet poster and perfectly fitting, I might add.

  • Can't buy on-line and no longer available within a 250 mile radius
  • I think these are them https://www.target.com/p/20ct-christmas-edison-silver-dipped-string-lights-clear-wondershop-153/-/A-52348414#lnk=sametab
  • Cool, what are they called? Link? I can't seem to find them on the Target website.
  • 1973 in Germany is probably when LZ peaked as a Live band. Those string of concerts were blistering and had LZ firing on all cylinders...........outstanding at every turn.
  • LTTE would be awesome! Full video would be awesome as well. Never was a fan of the early 1975 American Tour, Jimmy had a broken finger and it showed. Had to change up the setlist to accommodate.
  • From the bootlegs I've heard, it was a very up and down tour. Page strung out on heroin a lot of the time. Bonzo drinking a lot of the time and Plant not in his best form. That tour is where the term "dinosaurs" as a description of them originate…
  • I don't think you could ever get the Y236906 anywhere but direct. I know back when I was looking no vendor carried it. It had to be bought from AL. OP, just call AL direct for the Y236906.
  • I have a bootleg copy of Kevin Shirley's working tapes, essentially a rough multi-track mixdown version of a killer show in Southampton England at the Old Refectory University 1-23-73. Perhaps that's coming out since they worked on it before they…

  • Fleet mileage is a huge priority so if they can save weight, paint is one of the areas. Every little bit helps, especially on high volume cars/suvs, etc.
  • It is bass heavy. I've played around with sub positioning and it doesn't seem to matter. I am constantly turning the bass all the way down. I have it hooked up through the HDMI-ARC. If it's just hooked up via digital coax I don't think all mater…
  • Since this is in my backyard, I should probably attend. Been awhile since I've seen all your ugly mugs in person.
  • Yeah, I took a break, not really intended. Been spending some time on the VW GTi boards. Now that cold weather has arrived, I'll get the rig fired up and start doing audio things again....lol. Also went cold turkey in the tube buying department…
  • Hey Greg, welcome back. Another tube guru H9
