Installed my DoubleApex USB Charger. Love the OEM look it gives. Trying to keep it as OEM as possible and this is a great small mod.

Ask for Jose. He's done a few of my cars. They do excellent work!

How hard was it for you to install that charger?

Cost is like $65

Very easy. Pop up the shift knob boot and put it in 6th gear or Sport (DSG) to make room. Then pop off the tray and it's as simple as tapping into two wires with posi-taps (super easy). Took me about 30 minutes.

Got the roof wrapped on my Golf at AeroWerkz out in Industry for $150 (w/ sunroof). Met Philip at SoCal Euro last year and he hooked it up. It came out great!

No because I don't track my car. In street driving you can only be aggressive once in a while but it's nice to have when you need it.

Just washed it then followed it up with some 'Chemical Guys Hybrid V7 Optical Select High Gloss Spray Sealant & Quick Detailer'

Looking real proper! Loving how the tint turned out. Just ordered some color matched bumper plugs (stupid dealership!).

Up next: NSP Redline Boost Gauge

Just installed my rear color matched badge insert from Klii Motorwerkes. Looks great! The color matches really well.

Swapped out my RCD-310 for an RCD-510 AF thanks to Barry!

Looks and functions perfectly. Now, to sign up for XM or not...
