How much did it take to fill the front plate holes? Also do you get hassled for not having a plate?

Where's your body shop? I'm looking for a decent one with a good price that can fix my GF's front bumper. She bumped a truck and messed up her front bumper skin, cracked her bumper support and other small damage. Not going through insurance so I'll be paying out of pocket.

+1 on the body shop... Need to get dents taken off the hood and fenders of my wife's other car too so it's decent to drive (she ran into my bikes mounted on the wall and they popped off and put dents all over the hood)... That way I can put her back into her old car (a boring Accord), sell the CC, and focus more mod money to my GTI and FJ

Well, the body shop hooked me up, but you can contact Auto Network at 626-285-5489. Ask for Bruce.

That was one thing I forgot to mention in my build list, I also added big earth magnets on the inside of my bumper so when I go park in LA, I slap on my front plates which holds tight with magnets on the other side of the plate. While driving though, I never get hassled.

Very interesting. So you just used like epoxy to hold Neodymium magnets to the inside of the bumper?

I'm thinking about cutting a slit in my bumper and adding an air damn/vent what ever you want to call it to allow more flow to my FMIC. But I would love a way to fix a plate when parked or to hid the vent.

Thanks for the info on the roof wrap, I am taking it up there on Sat. to get it done. They are way cheaper than any other place I have called.

Yup. They just threw some epoxy on the magnets and attached them to the inside of the bumper. Real simple.

(Update) Got the new REVO v1.5 Software on and OMG totally transforms the car. She just keeps pulling and pulling. Much better ride now. Also absolutely no DSG problem that people had in the past. Looks like REVO fixed it in this latest update. Power and MPG. Definitely money well spent!

And with their SPS switch, makes changing ECU mapping characteristics so easy.

Yeah, initial impressions were pretty amazing. REVO was in my car shooting video and kept asking me to talk about what I felt, but I was like totally lost in the moment and and couldn't put together a coherent sentence lol.

I'll keep monitoring it though to see if any issue pops up, but supposedly the limp mode issue with DSG was easily repeatable and when tested on my car, did not happen. No fault/error codes popped up either.

This is one of the better TDI builds I have ever seen. I tried to look at this from work a few days ago but the pics wouldn't work. This is truly an amazing build you have going here. Keep it up man.
