What is this? Audi rim? Yes, it is exact the one for TT sport, the 1,8T 240hp Audi TT Sport Edition. Why not just get it installed on a bug?

This rim is so brilliant; it has polished and bright surface, ET26 offset and 8Jx18 with PCD 5x100. I think you can just install any kind of caliper with this rim.

PS. I don't want to install this rim so far, just put it on and have a look. :)

I sold the 308mm ECS one piece disc to someone few weeks ago. Yesterday, I got the two pieces disc from ECS and the brand new rear caliper of Golf GTI 25AE(a.k.a. Golf 337). Now the upgrade is done.


Waiting for Quaife LSD Kit

Due to the incresing horsepower, I felt that it is a little bit not easy to control this 280hp bug. I think it is time to get a LSD installed. I ordered Quaife LSD kit from ECS-Tuning website, and this one is for 02M (6-speed) gearboxes only.

In ECS website, it says:

With an ordinary open differential, most of the power is lost during wheelspin under heavy acceleration. This differential drives both wheels, instead of just one. An open differential shifts power to the wheel with the least resistance (the one with less grip). The Quaife does the complete opposite, and senses which wheel has the better grip, and applies the power to that wheel. This happens smoothly and constantly, and without ever completely removing power from either wheel.
