Good to hear that.

Installed Dieselgeek Shaft bushings today. Made a very subtle difference in stiffness side to side. Probably not worth the time. The install was easy and they were cheap though. Meh.

clear is oem rubber, black is dieselgeek delrin bushings.

Yikes, I had hoped the revision was better. I'll have to keep an eye on it. Did IE replace it for you?


Yea they’ll replace it for you which is the good thing. You just give them your order/invoice number along with a picture of it showing that it’s broken and they’ll ship you a new part

Installed a glass screen protector on my rcd330.
There is a slight gap on the left side but not too noticable unless you look for it.

Got the screen protector on Amazon

Regarding the bracket breaking...I bought one used and posted a thread, you need to put a flexible coupler on there similar to what APR has on theirs. Engine vibration is what kills those brackets. I found a dorman flexible coupler that is the exact fit. Wish I had the part number but I think it's 3" and there is a thread here somewhere.

Decided to give this license plate holder a try. Tired of having it drilled to the bumper, and with thoughts about wrapping the car i wanted to fill and sand the front bumper flush.

+1 for a license plate bracket. Once I get all my engine and suspension parts done i'm having my front bumper holes filled, along with the side markers and headlight washers then getting it all repainted. Will look way cleaner.

I bought my car in a state that didn't require front plates, so thankfully my bumper has no holes. But it's so beat up from eating rocks it still doesn't look great. I've been thinking about getting it smoothed over and resprayed now that I'm not driving it to work every day.

Anybody know if Candy White is difficult to match properly or should a good body shop be able to get it perfect?

My mk4 got hit and the body shop I took it to was able to match the reflex silver exactly and that car was 14 years old. I would think a good body shop would be able to match it well, may just cost a bit more.
