But this is 1000 times easier to find music on the iPhone than the basic GTI stereo.

How does it sound in the GTI? Was it easy to wire up? In the FJ, I replaced the crappy stock speakers with Pioneer 4-ways and it sounded terrific. The GTI stock system is OK.

Plastidipped both front & rear GTI badges black, and the back VW black as well, may be adding thin red strips on the VW today and turning the front one black too...And I might add that lip color too just like the black one I saw ITT. Looks great! Might not look as great on CW tho.

Bored wheels 12mm to 14mm


And ordered these:


^^TPMS strap kit, so I don't have to use the VW valve stems. Pretty slick, but not the cheapest option either.

When I purchased this I also got a JL 10" sub..so it's tough to say how it'd sound without that but overall I'm VERY pleased with this unit (big step up from the 2.5L stock deck), it does everything great it seems. Also I didn't install it. The thought of disassembling a VW interior just makes me cringe after owning and tinkering with my Jetta.

I think a lot of people do that because Audi is affiliated with VW so it's seen as OEM+...but I could be wrong, someone can correct me on that.
