Let the Tweaking Begin!

So I just picked up my 2011 CW GTI last night (Monday night). Tonight I spent a few hours playing with the vagcom settings (questions to come), as well as installing some yellow fogs.

Tomorrow night will probably be the Aspherical mirrors, and then next week will be tint and the auto-dim rearview. After that, I'll probably have to take a break until the warmer weather arrives (and the wife lets me buy more toys).

I know nothing to hardcore or earth shattering, but I'm really enjoying playing with my new toy. Pictures to come

EDIT - w00t, member status.

It was about $200 shipped to my door, with the adapter to fit our cars. Haven't decided if I'm going to install it myself yet, or have someone do it for me (I'm not to handy when it comes to electrical). We shall see.
