Cometic gasket and ARPs seem to be the go to but I haven't yet had to understand the nature of the problem well enough to understand how to fix it properly.

Oh boy. Reminds me of my old MK3 Supra. I did some research after I asked that question and it turns out the bolts stretch over time. Some people replace with studs without even changing the gasket out.

Quick update - I've decided to not go ahead with this Type R. I like it, but I don't love it enough to immediately start throwing parts at it.

A new FL5 even at MSRP is way more than I want to spend, so that's out. Still cross shopping with GTIs and Golf Rs, so I'm keeping an eye out for unmodified versions of either at CarMax.

Oh, and I did get Apple Carplay to work. Turned out there were too many phones registered with the car.
