I had a P3 gauge on my Mk6 R and it would drain my battery after 4-5 days. I removed it and sold it, battery never drained after that.

The GTI bumper and valance is a different shape to normal Golfs - so you cant just buy a regular Golf valance and put it on your GTI bumper....you would have to change the whole bumper.
