I swapped a badge RVC into my mkv. You need to run the harnesses, but otherwise it's pretty straightforward.

Make sure whoever rolls the fenders uses a heat gun. I don't think the shop that did mine used one, and now all that paint on the lip underneath is cracked and chipping.

Headliner replacement in central NJ

Can anyone recommend a shop that has experience with GTIs? For a mkv, but should be similar.

Thanks!

No firsthand experience, but I think i read somewhere there is a Fender option in VCDS. So I'd guess that needs to be adjusted.

Free bump for a great intake at an amazing price. I paid more than double for mine, and I'm very happy with it. Not overpowering noise. Subtle.
