Bird’s Reflex Silver Golf R

Posted on June 8, 2016 – 4:53 pm

Bird brought us his Reflex Silver Golf R for some suspension upgrades.  While our neighbors up North in Canada get this color option standard there are only 4 or 5 here in the U.S.  We’re told this vehicle used to be one of VW’s press vehicles and ended up at Auburn VW where Bird picked it up when he traded in his Golf TDI.

We installed VWR Sport Springs, SuperPro control arm bushings and rear sway bar links, an H&R rear sway bar, and 034 Motorsport rear subframe inserts.

We also wrapped some tires around a set of Work VSXX wheels Bird had refinished after taking them off his old Golf TDI.

… and performed a post suspension install alignment to finish things up.

These are upgrades we keep in stock …

APR VW MK6 Oil Catch Can System

Posted on May 23, 2016 – 3:00 pm

APR has just released their Oil Catch Can System for the MK6 Volkswagen Golf/Jetta/R!

The APR Oil Catch Can System replaces the failure prone factory positive crank ventilation (PCV) system and traps excessive crankcase oil vapors and gunk from entering the engine. The system eliminates a common performance robbing boost leak, while reducing carbon buildup on intake valves, octane lowering oil vapors and oil pooling within the intake tract. It’s a simple modification to install, drains in seconds with the flick of a knob, and is recommended at all stages of performance.

Quick Facts
