Jaber, the MAF gets relocated to the long straight section of the pipe that goes into the turbo. Supposedly, this is to get undisturbed air flowing over the MAF as that pipe is straight.

As for the cbfa cold starts with a breather filter. Yeah it's pretty damn loud lol. My wife's GLI has apr intake and sounds like a truck for few seconds.


Sent from my iSuperior, expect typos, mathematical errors and inaccuracy.

Love all of the subtle changes you made to your car. Where did you get the blind spot mirror, no error after installation. Love the GTI on the seat handle as well. Great job will be following.

Sorry for the late reply! I found the blindspot mirrors on ECS Tuning. Great upgrade and really adds to the look of the car.

They really make the car look better! I have my front lip in black though, goes well with the grill.

Had Klii Motorwerkes wrap my euro plate frame in mk6 plaid. Had the custom plate made with my IG/Forum/etc handle. I plan to run this setup for Cars & Coffee, shows, etc. Made it 40 miles round trip today without getting pulled over. I have a standard plate frame wrapped in the same plaid for my state tag.

Really loving the new front end with the lip and color-matched markers. About to do Bi-Xenon swap and get rid of these halogens lights.

Cool Ed's reps? I have been thinking of them since ages now, but get discouraged due to the peeling issues.

No reps, OEM Bi-Xenon headlights. Will be doing the work on Friday. I'll post back here with the install.

OEM Bi-Xenon headlight retrofit complete.

OEM headlights, ballasts, bulbs, led city light and Kufatec adapters pinned for highbeams.

Here is the result.
