At first I thought the same thing but when I compared it to my friend who has 30 it was darker than his. My wife has 20 and it looks like mine. I guess for me coming from 5 my eyes didn't adjust right away.

Nice mods!

Did your car come stock with the mud flaps?

Going with the color match look you may consider applying Lamin-x in the smoke color on the fog lights. I did on mine just to tie in the whole lower grill in one color. Plus it gives you a extra level of protection against rock chips.

Were you able to get the stock ones off and these on without removing the bumper? I think there are 3 clips or something that hold them on, but I can really only get to 1 of them easily, maybe 2.

I replied about this in the thread you created. Here is what I said:

It was a PITA but I was able to take them off without removing the bumper.

It helps to have skinny arms but you will need a flat head, flashlight, and some pliers. The reflectors are held by 3 clips. You want to squeeze the middle clip with the pliers and then lodge the flat head into it. Then squeeze the clip closest to the license plate and push forward. This should pop out the first 2 clips. Then take the flat head and carefully try to lodge it on the last clip(it may take some searching with the flat head before you find it) at same time carefully pry the reflector away from the bumper.

I got mine from David Maus VW South on OBT around September. I like David Maus dealers, pretty easy to deal with. I love that around Orlando, you dont see many GTIs so they are kind of original. I live near the airport and haven't seen yours around. I also have 20% all the away around and it looks similar to mine.

I saw that you that you replied in the Central Florida thread about tint suggestions and meet up spots. Maybe we can ride out to the UCF meet ups one Wednesday.
