Went in for its 80k service - all fluids changed, DSG flushed, woohooo! Found wastegate was starting to go bad, some oil leaking around it (must have been the constant cruising at 80mph+ ) so changed that out, and also needed an alignment, got that done as well.

Now.....to pay the bill later this month

Almost finished installing the eibach multi pro r2 coilovers, vorschlag camber plates, replaced every bushing in the car with powerflex black series poly bushings. Voodoo13 toe arms, mk5 rear upper control arms.

I can't wait to drive this thing.

I installed a set of those a while ago. They are pretty bright, but maybe it will make my car more visible to those people who drive with one eye on their farking phone screen.

I pulled my headliner 2 days ago. Not too difficult, especially if you've removed interior trim before. If you have the time you can save a lot of money.

Did you reupholster yours or replace it?

Drove to Texas and back, got the P2015 intake code at 150k. Everything intact, going to try taking it apart to clean it...fingers crossed.

It would've been 250$ to reupholster it or 400$ for a new one from the dealer. On top of that it had a crease from b pillar to b pillar. Figured it was worth the extra to replace.

That's a fair price, ECS is like $500 shipped.
