Was able to shave off full 4 sec from my first run. What an experience

Maxton Side Spoiler

Finally got around to mounting these side-spoilers by Maxton. Fit isn't OEM perfect, but they look awesome! Schatzi doesn't mind some MK7 goodness 😇 Had to relocate the norcalvwdriversclub decal. I like the way it looks





This angle should give a better idea of how they look on the car. I love how they just blend in, as if they were always there on the car.

RCD 330plus

Have been hearing about the RCD-330plus from about the same time when I had installed my RNS-315. However, it only used to support Mirrorlink for Android. Not really a clean solution. Recently however they added Android Auto support and I couldn't resist it anymore :P



Make no mistake, I had been really happy with the RNS-315. It's a solid unit by itself. I still maintain it's quite a decent upgrade from the barebones RCD-310. But I have been simply blown away by Android Auto in my wife's Crosstrek since then! It really adds so much more to the idea of a car head-unit. What's best about this particular unit is that it gels so well with the car's stock interior. The touch response is miles better, every section is more feature-rich and who doesn't like a bigger screen It's basically an RNS-510 with Android Auto and Apple Carplay support. Perfect oemplus mod. Highly recommended!

Another pic with lights on:

Go for it! Ebay has a 15% sale till this month end

I use a very entry-spec Canon T3i. Sigma wide-angle zoom lens. Not very good for these close range shots but it goes up to 50mm, so I manage. Good thing is it has a consistent f2.8.

I've been debating on whether or not to get those Maxton side wings myself. Thanks for posting these photos as I have not really seen any other Mk6's with them installed.


Your car is looking good man!

Clean stereo install.
My GTI has the base stereo, non touch screen. Ive always eyed the upgrades. The price is super reasonable on the RCD330plus. How hard was it to install and do you know off the top of your head if it is compatible plug and play replacement with the standard radio that is in the 2012 Gti base models?

Install is super-easy. You just need to take off the surrounding trim, connect all the plugs and put the unit back in. Just make sure you disconnect your battery before you do this.

Radio works just fine. Also, it doesn't need any radio code because they don't enforce it in China
