:turboyaris: aficionados, my very own GTI is officially for sale. For anyone who hasn't seen any of my other random postings, I'm selling because my wife and I are about to be parents of three (expecting twins) and the GTI just isn't meant to haul around that many tiny crotchfruit. The car currently has ~49,050 miles and counting. The car is VW certified with a warranty out to 60k miles, and has never been tuned. I bought the car in August of 2018, and the maintenance history below begins there:

Maintenance
37k - Michelin Pilot Sport AS3+ tires, installed by selling dealer
37k - RS3 coils and 06K905601D plugs
38k - OEM Strut mounts & bearings, Meyle HD swaybar end links
40k - Castrol 0w40 & Mann filter, PP diff service, Mann FreciousPlus cabin filter
41k - Alignment, Zimmerman front rotors & Textar pads
42k - ECS V4 plain rear rotors & Textar pads
45k - Castrol 0w40 & Mann filter, brake fluid flush, tire rotation

Mods
Torque Solution billet pendulum insert
ESC Sport/ESC Off coding
40k - ECS bleeder block and clutch line, clutch delay valve delete

In full disclosure, one of the Meyle end links (driver's side) does seem to be going bad. I began noticing some creaking when entering or leaving the driveway in the new house - the curb is enough to tweak that swaybar quite a bit - and I don't think the Meyle piece is super happy about life. I never hear any noises under any other conditions, so if I just trade in the car I'm probably not going to fix it, but if somebody here is interested I'll absolutely replace them, either with OEM or SuperPro, your choice (choose the latter).

Price - $16,900 obo

If you plan on adding on a :tuna:, I also have a set of the SuperPro engine mounts if you're interested. These are now discontinued and were originally $875+. I bought them right as they were being discontinued for $625 shipped, and I'd just be looking to get out of them what I spent. I also have the roof bars, obviously.

If they’re not that old, it could just be that the end link nuts need to be re-torqued.

I’ve had them loosen over time on some cars, leads to creaking and popping under load.

The Sport trim is the best looking OE wheel on the Mk7. GLWS.

Hm, very well could be. It warmed up to the mid 40s today and I didn't hear a peep when I went to the gym this morning, I'd still guess it's the ball joint but :iono: .

I'd argue the black Pretorias on the rabbit editions are :muah:, but the head unit in those is pure poverty and I still like the Nogaros. Reflex silver really grew on me too, it absolutely pops in the sun. The Sport trim really is where it's at with these. No VW sunroof to deal with or :butwhy: leather, but you get the lighting package, the fancy diff, Golf R brakes and keyless. Everything you'd want, nothing you don't.

I've genuinely really grown to love this car. That VW puts the MQB underpinngings in cars that cost $60k+ is pretty apparent when you drive one of these, IMO. It easily feels like a $40k car.
