Glad my car isn't black I suppose. Most aggressive I get is M105 with an orange lake county pad on the porter cable.

This weekend I think I'll put my ST rear sway bar in. Put it up on ramps 2 weeks ago and couldn't get a triple square in the end of the end link because it would hit the springs, immediately lost motivation. Going to just remove the end links with the sway bar and transfer them to the new sway bar off the car. Would have done it last weekend but the dealership had the car trying to find a water leak. Turned out to be a seal that wasn't fully seated from the factory.

Yeah I think 105 will be the next route. I have buff marks on it right now

From your previous attempts or from the dealer? My MK6 was hologramed pretty bad when I got it, and M105 and I think just a white pad cleared it up.

From my own previous attempt, when the weather gets better I'll get back at it.

That's too bad. I've never seen buffer marks just using a porter cable.

Anyone interested in a BFI shift knob? I bought one a while back but I want to get a different style now.

Its this exact one.

With a $10 terminal tool, it's pretty simple if you watch the DIY videos

Routing the harness (under the trim) is the only tricky part
