    If anyone is looking for a set of car ramps for DIY maintenance, I just picked up a set of these Stanfred low profile ramps. These will lift my car an additional 10-12cm over my current ramps and the low profile approach angle design means they clear the underside of my front bumper.

    Part # CRTP1400

    My Mk7 GTI PP....turns out I cant resist the VAG.

    Took a few hours off work this morning to do a few mods/maintenance items on the GTI.

    First up was the rear anti sway bar upgrade. ZSS racing anti sway bar and Moog metal end links. Factory bar is 21.7mm hollow bar, the ZSS bar is 25.4 hollow bar and a good chunk heavier than the factory bar. Fitted up perfectly and should be a nice upgrade.

    ZSS REAR SWAY BAR (25.4MM) - VW Golf GTI MK7 (2014-)

    While I was under there I cleaned the exhaust mufflers, pipework, fuel tank and rear subframe with degreaser, then hot soapy water and a cloth.

    Then onto the rear disk replacement. Ive had these Bosch disks in the garage for about 6 months so it was well and truly time to fit them (fronts were fitted shortly after receiving them as they were pretty worn out). They have a silver paint/coating on them but I painted the hub area satin black. Need to wear the paint off the disk face now.

    Ive bought a few other OEM+ and performance goodies with the current Black Friday sales. These should hopefully turn up over the next week or so.

    My Mk7 GTI PP....turns out I cant resist the VAG.

    New Turbosmart dual port blow off valve fitted a few days ago. A well thought out Aussie made product that is a direct replacement for the stock DV valve. Have been thinking about getting one for a while now for various reasons, both for the sound when it vents to atmosphere and also to see if would stop the constant and annoying air bypass sound the stock DV valve would make on light throttle.

    Turbosmart Kompact EM BOV Dual Port VR1 ' MK7/MK7.5 Golf / Audi 8V S3 / FL RS3 8V.5 / Skoda / EA888.3

    So ive only driven about 20km since fitting it but it seems to have stopped the annoying trait the stock DV had with an audible air bypass sound (which you could hear no doubt due to the aftermarket intake) on light throttle, and the pssssst when it vents to atmosphere is great. It only happens on heavier throttle input and if you come off the throttle gently it wont make any sounds - so you can control it quite well if you don't want the sound.

    Grabbed it during the Black Friday sales for $250 which was a bargain.

    Also recently bought some APR coil packs. Wanted red but everyone was out of stock of the red ones, so opted for the grey ones.

    That blow off valve looks like a worthy mod.

    Some little OEM+ mods fitted today, both cool yet totally unnecessary. These are off the Clubsport edition GTI.

    - brake fluid reservoir heat shield
    - RS3 brake ducts
    - underbody aero cover/heat shield
    - rear suspension aero covers
