Yup. Color matches almost perfectly, needs to be just a little glossier. Fitment is ok... not quite as good as OEM, but more than acceptable.

Parking lot damage... even after my efforts to prevent such damage. Idiotic drivers are always around, and resistance is futile!

A little teaser on how things are going on the mod front...

You can see the coilovers peeking through in the bottom picture. Here's the thing too - the guy who sold them to me said they were PSS9's, and I didn't double check them. But when we went to adjust the damping when we installed them... there were 10 adjustment settings. Hence, PSS10's. Guess I got more than I bargained for.

Tires are mounted and ready to go on the track wheels, just waiting for the weather and the tarmac to warm up!

So today, the DSG flash and the motor mount went in. Power transfer is... much improved.

More NVH (a little at idle/reverse, quite a bit when at low RPM) but the car feels really solid and wheel hop is pretty much gone! Shifts are faster, smoother... and there is no longer a 3-2-1 clunk! No kickdown is also quite nice, but have to get used to it again because I now have to adjust my driving style.

Add more impressions as I get used to it and form an opinion.

Vanguard review is being written up, and videos are being taken soon.
