I've considered them a few times now, I might just have to pick up a set. Would've been a much better investment than the Parts4Euro smoked sidemarkers I bought that don't fit.

I figured they'd be a cheaper way to go about doing colormatched sidemarkers, but I should've just bought a set of OEM ones to match.

Chrome Glove Box Handle

Self explanatory,if not check this link

When you change the stock handle,the new one looks simply better.


Yes,you're right,toilet paper,just for you! This was an impro' since the magnetic tip didn't work as planned,I did some ghetto type"anti-lose screw kit" Not that shitty,right!



Tighten it macho style & you will not lose the screw inside the glove box compartment.



Sweet!!




To be continued..

TLC rear Badge.

I wasn't feeling my old plaid insert.



I decide to give a try on the shinny black one this time..





Definitely much better.This one enhance the rear badge without add additional color to the mix,sleeker.





I'm almost done with the rear of the car,next will be the reflectors and some layers to match the LED tails...

Nice mods...

But only 242 in Stage 2 ? From 211HP stock ? I think with stage 1 I will be at 240HP

Thanks PimpyS.

As for the numbers,keep in mind these factors.
-DSG equipped.
-Diff.gas octane.
-Exhaust set up.
-Every dyno + conditions are diffrent.
-Not sure,if anyone can chime on this,but I think the Euro GTI diffres in power in comparisson to the U.S.

The plan is reflash the DSG to squeeze a little bit more.

And here we are...

The idea was simple: create a closer look bet. The dark LED tails and the lower reflectors not regretting their purpose (light tinted layer). After seen the results in some others GTI, I decide to give a try...







Left side,layer applied.


Without layer


Layer on


*Third break light layer,not sure yet.

BRAKING IS BACK TO NORMAL.

I finally had the chance to install fresh pads & rotors, The game changer here in this service is actually the pad with a better bite than the stock one. In the future I will add lines and eventually a groovier fluid, but so far it's good to go!
