After having an STi for 8 years, I've finally been cured. But now I have a VAG 😂.
Bought her used, but with only 600mi on her. Will keep the mods light for now (came with a couple of small stuff done already) until the warranty expires, then we'll see.

Current Mods (from the seller):
034motorsport rear subframe inserts
034motorsports DSG dogbane
034motorsports rear sway bar
034motorsports rear end links (dynamic+)
034motorsport braided stainless steel brake lines
034motorsport turbo inlet pipe
034motorsport intake tube
AFE dry air filter
Xpel on front bumper, headlights, hood, mirror caps, b pillar, front door sills, rear deck
034motorsport resonator delete


Up next:
Rokblockx Mud Flaps
Torklift ecohitch mount and a oneup hitch rack
OBDEleven

OBDEleven arrived today. Turned off the soundaktor, added mirror dip in reverse, auto locking, and convenience windows. Will need to check that the last 3 are working properly.

So can't seem to get the convenience windows to work, even with calibrating, will give it another go later. Did manage to code the automatic reverse overlay.

Also put on rokblokz mudflaps in the front, will do rears this weekend.

Bought some extended paddle shifters off ebay. The right one went in super quick, but the left one just would not align. Finally got it to go after waaaay too much fiddling.

Hit 1000mi on Monday. Planning to go for a real drive this weekend (likely after doing the mud flaps).

Torklift ecohitch should arrive on Monday. Will get it installed next week and put on the bike rack

Got the rear mudflaps installed yesterday and went for a short little drive. Finally got to push her a bit but nothing too crazy.

Most important mod I'll ever do is installed: ecohitch and a 1up bike rack!

....now I just need to get the car to stop beeping at me every time I reverse. Looks like that's not as easy to code as I thought.
