I like it, nice and modest. Thinking about the H&R/Koni route myself.

European cupholder installed. This was a major undertaking and very scary. So much fragile trim removal, tiny screws and plastic tabs. Took me 2.5hours from start to finish. During the trim removal of the surround for the HVAC controls, I accidentally unplugged my airbag warning light and it threw an error light on the dash. Luckily, I just purchased VAGCOM last week and cleared the code immediately. Whew!



I also installed the aluminum glovebox handle. It really sets off the interior.

The rain finally let up this evening just before dark, so I found an old abandoned road and snapped some shots.

Dat booty though!

Installed Euro blind spot mirrors. Really like the subtle look and improved visibility.



Also got a shot of the P3Cars vent gauge during the day. My only gripe about this thing is the amount of fogging I get on it from the Florida humidity. It's like instant as soon as I open my door. #floridaproblems

Installed the OEM aluminum glove box handle today. Install wasn't to bad. Used a powerful magnet on the side of the door and magnetized allen key to remove. Tiny screw stayed on the tip of the tool the entire time during removal and install. The hardest part is finding the hole to screw into when reinstalling.

*If you plan on doing this, insert your key into the lock and keep it there throughout the removal and install. If you dont, the retainer springs for the lock will pop out and you'll spend 30 mins attempting to fix (if you can even find the springs).

I plan on using the P3Gauge to track power increases, temprature differences, etc with each mod. I know it wont be 100% accurate all the time, but it will be nice to use it to document baseline numbers and then track any improvements with each mod.
I guess you were able to pop the VW emblem out of the Detroit Huffeisens and into the Neuspeeds? I don't think most wheels would accept that right? Neato.

Where did you get the LED taillights? I see prices ranging from $250 to $600 depending what site or eBay selling I'm looking at. Nice little touches everywhere on your ride like that glove box aluminum.

I'm wondering how those gunmetal Neuspeed rims would look on Carbon Steel Gray... maybe too much dark. Hrm.
