Yeah, for sure. A few nudges tightening things up does pay dividends and gives you a nice handling car. I’ve had a few handling icons back in the day and a thoughtfully tweaked mk5 is quite respectable. Better to spend time / money on the handling than chase more bhp than the car can put down on the road.

100% agree, I love a nice handling car makes for so much of a better drive.
Especially if you can get the power down. There’s only so much you can have through the front wheels before it’s wasted wheel spinning.

No the Eibachs aren't hollow by the way, and neither are the H&Rs as far as I know.

Apart from saving a tiny bit of weight, there's no advantage other than being cheaper to make.  Less metal, less cost!

Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

The only ones that I think are hollow are the Autotech ones.

Superpro for the console bushes, OEM rubber everywhere else imo.
