The paint on them is perfect too, but they didn't have CSG so I had to go with the shark blue and they'll be repainted csg next week hopefully.

It didn't include the retainer, but I feel like with the 3 screws on the bottom and the screw in the front fender liner it should be fine with the 3m tape across the top.
It's "normal" for the back to be a few millimeters longer. I installed with just 3M tape along the top with the 4 OEM screws and it's fine.

Yup, that's exactly what I saw, just a few mm long in the back.

I figured they'd be fine with just using those screws and the tape, but I decided to order the retainers anyway lol

They'll just make me a feel a little better.

I dropped them off for paint this morning, so I'll probably still be waiting on the retainers before I can install them.

For a complete oem set up it cost me right around $600. Skirts were $330 on ebay, paint is gonna be $200, and the retainers were $83 from ecs. It's still more than I wanted to pay, but I didn't feel comfortable ordering any of the cheap reps, and even good aftermarket skirts would have been at least $500 before paint and then oem is like $1200...

Great Pedals Jay, I have those in my 996, and wouldn't you know they fit the lil ol Golf too. Works great at the track but a bit pain in the A$$ for daily driving with hiking boots or wide shoes BUT then again your GTI is only used for track.

Mine are black tho, not as pretty as yours. LoL

Cheers !

EDIT: Here is the link where I found mine, the lifter plate not required by me in the 996 but the VW pedals and seating position is so bad for heel toe, I had to add the Lifter Plate to the Golf.

Installed a new rear clamp that had rusted off. Noise was unbearable after a while. Really made me appreciate the quietness of the exhaust. Gotta look at a downpipe though.

Oh yeah... warmed up enough to put these on. Bought them off a member here. Easy to put on.. protect the sides from road rash and other drivers from rooster tails lol

Fitted some Firestone Firehawk Indy 500s. Got a damn good deal on them but mostly I'm just happy not to be driving on winters anymore.

So far so good. Make sure you send in the $100 mail in rebate from NTD.

If you want to be extra frugal, you can order two from two different Kal Tires and get that price down another $100 (until March 31)

Gave her a long overdue wash (well, yesterday). The pollen's been nuts here lately, every car has a lime-green haze on it.

Fell in love with the "magic eraser" product. It was able to finally get off some set-in grime on the back of the car that nothing else could. Also makes quick work of minor scuffs and stubborn bugs.

While I was washing it, a woman walking her dog down the street told me "I love clean white cars. They look sticky, like Elmer's glue."
