Installed the factory springs. I also wrapped the Cadiz center spokes in glass black vinyl. I saw someone else do it and love the look. For $13 vinyl it was well worth the effort and I may make it permanent if it doesn’t hold up.

I like the wheel mod.
Tint anytime soon? Makes such a difference. I’m getting mine tinted Thursday.
Yeah, it really changes the look.

Windows are tinted. They are at the percentage I like. The quality is crap, so I may get it redone.

While installing my springs I broke the brake wear sensor on the right front. I was extremely annoyed by this since the rest of the job went so well.

I tried rationalizing it and thinking it was already like that. It wasnt. There was no corrosion on the pins. I figured this was going to be expensive. This harness wheel speed sensor, height sensor, DCC strut, and brake wear sensor. I found it on VW Parts Vortex for about $141. Not as bad as I thought. Not to be outdone, I kept looking and decided to try Rock Auto against my better judgement. They had one listed from Intermotor. Some cursory Googling resulted in the being a quality brand and in some cases better than OEM. So for half retail, I decided to give it a shot.

The part arrived today and I was pleasantly surprised.

So I am pretty happy taking the plunge. I think I may scavenge the connector only since all the wires look to need to be spliced in.
