Bought an android head unit from eBay (it was cheaper than an advertised GB). Will do an independent review on the install and unit itself when it arrives.

Did not end up keeping the android head unit. OEM is far fast and functionally sound enough to endure. Might look into other options - OEM, maybe RNS 510

also bought a Jeep (WJ) Grand cherokee for a daily/beater. it has 4x4 so i can survive better in winter driving, as well as do things in other seasons so i wont have to bottom out my mk6. I am going to declare this a project car, soon enough.

Front lip install gave me trouble - the alignment clips did not align with the spots in my front bumper...

so i clipped off about half of them and screwed the thing in place where the screw holes were. there is a small gap now, might give it some time and affix to to be flush later with some caulking.

same issue here!

Oh yeah - So i got hit on the front bumper while parked a while back and it damaged the lip.. got insurance to pay for a new one, had it professionally colormatched and installed - the guys complained about the fitment but were able to make it happen. I think they put a heat gun to the plastic to make it more complaint when installing.
