I bought them used, so got a good discount. I think they were only installed for one year. Trying to wait until I do some other upgrades at the same time.

The dealer may deny you because of the tune. Just a coincidence it popped a code, it's a very common issue.

Those o-rings go on the radiator hose connections, your original ones are probably not leaking but I would hold on to them just in case.

OCD is a helluva disease. I bought my car with more scratches and dents than that. Gotta learn to let it go. For about $40 you could sand that edge and get some matching spray paint. It will look...

In the first post...Part No 1K0 907 379 AD, AE, AM, BC, confirmed working.

I have not heard of a solution for the BG pump yet. If you have $100 and some tools, you could buy a different unit and swap it out.

You're fine. No problem until it gets below the tread, you've got plenty of life left on those. Those are superficial scratches at best.
