That's what I've been reading. Although I'm also torn on going the Remus exhaust route with quad tips to give it a bit of a unique look at the back. Won't be happening until at least late next year, I need to put some money aside for an emergency fund for the car to have a cushion if something happens. Coming up on 200,000km and I want to do some preventative maintenance first.Saw on your wishlist for the clubsport muffler.
It completely changes the sound in the best way possible.
I'll take some pictures, it's not terrible but it's exactly where @Gray_Panther notes in their recent thread; right at the side skirt/rocker location at the wheel well. I'm a little worried that VW won't cover it, if they won't I'll take it back to the shop that did my earlier VW corrosion warranty claim.How bad is the corrosion?
Adding on to this, parts shop I have bookmarked (they've had a few 2-door parts cars in the past so had them saved for future stuff) had some pre-facelift fogs pop up on their page so I grabbed them. @Cuzoe convinced me it may be an easier retrofit than I thought.Spring goals;
- Euro tails and
- Submit a corrosion claim, starting to show signs at the front end of each skirt and at the underside of the hood.
- Headlight (maybe bumper) PPF.
- Refinish the Pretorias before summer; few chips and blemishes but no serious rash. Local VW sent me the contact info of the shop where they send their wheels for warranty repair.
Did a Spring deep-clean to take some photos for the corrosion claim. This is mostly it; front fenders coming down to the rocker, small bubble under the passenger rear-view, bubbling at the driver's door sill. I threw in photos of under the hood as a shot in the dark to see if I can get the whole hood replaced, starting to peel at the clear bra and it's pretty beat up from over 200k km of driving. If the hood is denied it might be a good excuse to get a carbon fiber replacement.How bad is the corrosion?
Got it in for another corrosion claim last week. He worked some magic last time for me so fingers crossed he can pull through again this year.Geeze that rust is disconcerting though Canadian winters seem to be especially harsh on cars. Nevertheless she's still looking quite sharp!
