    Re: SoCalEuro Projekt GLI - 2013 Candy White

    Reviews:


    I refer all of my SoCalEuro members to SDTint.com for vinyl and tint. I wanted something light but reflective from heat. They recommend CTX Film at 50%. Which is perfect for my taste. Their installation is always perfect. I've used them on my 2006 S4 Avant, 2000 BMW M5, 2009 GTI and now the Projekt GLI. I also had them wrap my roof in Gloss Black vinyl to finish off that exterior.


    I got the GIAC ECU software and DSG software upgrade about 2 weeks ago. Wanted to get some miles on the car to get some seat time to write this up. First off, the DSG software is a must for anyone with a DSG GLI. The shifting and shifting dynamics are night & day. Garrett from GIAC explained to me how simplistic VW made the DSG software that it almost acts like an automatic. This was by far the largest improvement I felt. The shift points are more intelligent and shift speeds are quicker. The car is much more pleasant to drive now. The ECU upgrade of course is typical of most ECU upgrades. It's a must have to unlock the power of the 2.0T TSI motor. I would like to get the car up on the dyno to give you some numbers. The drive-ability in low RPM is wonderful. Being that I'm older than some of the typical Vortex'rs nowadays I can tell you, the car is even better feeling as a daily driver than in stock form. My MPG has stayed equal or if not improved from OE. I have had a mix of different chip companies from Autotech, APR, GIAC on previous vehicles.


    The ST Suspension is amazing! I dropped by Pure Motorsport of San Diego to get the coilovers installed. They are the go to guys from VW/Audi in San Diego. For the price point of around $900 retail you get a full coilover backed by KW Suspension. The build quality is excellent. The ride quality is on par with OE. It takes on bumps without issues. I am not going for a slammed look, but rather wanted a sport stance. The ST Suspension gives me everything I am looking for for a street performance setup. The car is much more nibble and stable around on ramps and turns. Once I get more seat time, I will update.

    The ride is perfect! I have not driven the car to its limits, but couple casual drives up to Julian and Big Bear and so far so great. No complains. For the price, really recommend the ST Coils. If you got any specific questions let me know.

    I can go much much lower also.

    ST really do seem like a good bang for the buck. I'm on the market for something that going to give me the correct stance and pass the gf test.

    Passed the wife test so far. She drove my car to work, and also a trip up to Big Bear. No complaints.
