Lamin-X Tint Rear Reflectors

I used Lamin-X Tint (6%) to darken my rear bumper reflectors to match my tail lights today. It was extremely easy, so I used the excess to tint my side markers as well!
I did accidentally scratch a little paint above one of the side markers because I went too fast

Installed my stage 2 pipe a week or so ago and I love it! The car feels much more responsive and a bit stronger. It seems I'm noticing all the gains others get from just the stage 1 with my stage 2.


I also discovered I have a leak in my front left tire this morning, so I'm dealing with that now...
EDIT: turns out I need all new tires... I'm getting Goodyear eagle F1 asymmetricals today

Welcome!

Great looking car from the start with some pretty good plans.

Keep up the good work and keep us updated!

Finally got my stage 1 tune today The extra torque is incredible! The best description I heard was now my car does what I wanted to be able to do in traffic. Pulls harder and faster and so far it feels well worth the money I also got a tour of APR while I was there and they run a fantastic facility.

While I was there they were dynoing a stage 1 mk7 and it was hitting over 300hp... They also had some pretty exciting sounding beta testing going on.

Went in to get a tire patched, turns out I have a cracked wheel. I can't decide if I should just pick up a new Detroit or move to new wheels...

move to new wheels if you're considering but do it soon enough, switch a spare tire too, too risky to drive with a cracked wheel. or get another, there are bunch of people selling one wheel of detroits

A buddy picked some up for his Mk5 Jetta because of the price when he bent one of his rims. Ended up loving them. They look great and seem to be pretty good quality for the pricetag.

ECS Tuning has the rims I want for mine, but the price is a little more than the Alzors haha. I want some Avant Garde M220s
