^i hear ya there.

To add, I am tinkering around with some small things -

Finally found an interior trim set on ebay which includes the lower door trim panels (that your feet go over when you enter/exit the car) which go from the front to the back. Mine are all jacked up and won't clip in properly, so hoping this alleviates the issue.

Also ordered a few things from ECS:

Trunk LED
New trunk lower panel (been looking for one forever since that is also all jacked up clip-wise and won't stay in place)
Red coil pack harness (Race car)
few other little odds and ends
Brake pad wear sensor delete

Ideally i need to focus on getting a few dash lights off:
Bulb out warning (all my bulbs are modified, not sure if they can all be coded out, probably not unfortunately)
Airbag - due to the braum racing seats, even though i swapped everything over, i have an airbag warning light i need to solve somehow
tpms - i think my button broke so need to fix or something to turn that off

Return that brake pad sensor delete. I'll code it off with vagcom instead fo freesies

ordered a leaf blower to dry my car easier

the ceramic coating and sealants i'm using make drying it require almost no towel use now which is so key! but i'm tired of lugging my vacuum around the car to blow the water off

selling my front seats if anyone's interested that hasn't seen the FS thread.

Nothing against the Braum seats at all, I'm just going back to a stock setup cause I need the money and may eventually piece the car back to stock. Odds of me losing my work truck due to new company policies may happen one day and I need to be prepared lol.

Went back to I'm leathers. Found a super nice set of eBay for the right price. Wanted to go back to something classier; the braums we're just a little much.

The braums and the rest leathers with red stitching (one section shown below) are for sale if anyone's interested.

Yeah, they are nice however being a cheaper brand the anodization is a little more pink/purple than red. not as red as i would like. But they feel good and are really the only design paddle shifters that i like.

Working with my garage light last night thought the lighting was nice for a pic or two.My buddy carson made a nice little bracket for my catch can so that's finally secured.

Few new updates:

Picking up some osir rear bumper/sideskirt 'spats' today, like in this link:
http://www.osirusa.com/mm5/merchant....y_Code=VGTI6EB

I got them painted candy white so they should look awesome I hope!

Also ordered a fx-r retrofit kit from theretrofitsource on their black friday deal.
Going to swap the projectors in my depo lights, paint all the chrome black and maybe a/some red accent/s somewhere. Very excited for that and will document the whole process since there is very little information on the boards on retrofitting MK6 lights, let alone projector lights!

Lastly, finally got my new rear control arms installed so I could adjust the rear camber a bit. So far i havent rubbed the rear fender which is nice.

Thats about it!
