Good news.

Not as good as a Dacia Sandero, but still good news. Now, go sod off and have a pint of London Pride, while listening to some classical music and eating a poached egg.

Anymore pics of how you ran the AWE CCB with stock location MAF? I LOVE the looks and sound of my CCB, but I need to go back to stock MAF location for tune.

I'm not a huge fan of the Golf R skirts because they don't flow well with the GTI front and rear bumpers and I hate how they look tacked on at the top where it meets the side of the car, particularly right in front of the rear wheel well.

I'm also tired of those useless black plastic things.

What did you do with the holes? I've thought about cutting the heads off of the screws, slotting them, and using a really narrow screwdriver to insert them until they're flush and then use some touch-up paint to blend them in. It shouldn't be too noticeable and I like that it wouldn't be permanent.
