Tint done..even though I said I wasn't going to..

I figured I'd update my post with some pics with the windows tinted. In Sacramento, it gets pretty hot in the summer. I was over it one day and decided to bite the bullet and get the 35% all the way around from a local place http://www.premiumglassandtint.com/ I'm very satisfied with their service and attention to detail.

The best tank to date was 685 miles. When I filled it up, I put in 14.1 gallons. Not too bad IMO This is such a change from the 18 mpg I was getting in my Subie

Car looks great!

I know how you feel, Ive got a 12 TDi thats Certified AND w/ Extended Warranty and Ive been really tempted to go Stage II with DPF/EGR Delete.
I originally planned on waiting till 100k before I tuned it and ripped out all the Emissions equip but I dont know if Im going to be able to even wait that long.. Ha I only just hit 60k, and have already done most of the small interior/ exterior cosmetic things that I want besides the LED Tails and a few others.

Maybe some others can chime in about it but I know Malone does a Stage I or II that doesnt require removing anything. KermaTDi also recently came out with a new Tune/Loader that allows you to easily load the tune on yourself from the comforts of your own home. KermaTDi's tune also retains all factory Emissions equip, and so far seems to be getting very positive reviews.
That might be an option for ya, although they could poss still deny a warranty claim bc of it, they would have to prove thats what caused the failure which is kind of a toss up. Thats what I'm considering doing, getting Stage II Tune now and leave all the Emissions equip on, then once I hit 100k and the extend warranty is up go back in and have the tune tweaked and all the Emissions Equip ripped out.
I see you live in Cali, so thats prob not an option for you, but you could still get a Stage I or II tune with the Emissions equip still intact.

How do the Super Sports ride? Ive been considering getting them, since Im really just looking to get rid of the wheel gap.
Are you on the stock shocks/struts? I heard the Super Sports can trash the stock suspension pretty quickly.

Got a 2012 tdi with the kerma tune. Love it! The tune settled in after a quick drive for the most part. I can't compare it to any others but no issues and it definitely livens things up power wise. They also plan to update the tune after the emissions thing is "fixed" by vw. The Q loader deal is easy too, and you keep it. Can't complain about that.
