Fun tidbit about the mk5, in case you're wondering why the inner halogen seemingly never comes on: it's for "flash to pass" only, when the headlights are off. VW was worried about turning the HID on and off quickly, so when you pull the high beam stalk to flash your lights with the headlights off, those turn on instead of your HIDs (the normal high beams are just a shutter on the low beam to give it a broader spread).

Looks dope.

If you’re sure you prefer the tint then I would highly suggest to just get laminx brand, it’s a very different product than all the Amazon roll tints and it waay better quality (just expensive when your at the experimental stage in the tint and level of darkness

Great job, that's a good looking mk5! I think the next priority is getting the front VW badge on there, and to really riceburn it maybe throw a crown royal bag shift boot on there 🤌

Went to vatozone and got two oem style exhaust whistle tips. Cringe city to do that, but hey, its the same shit ebay sells.
The only dumb thing is, due to the new tips having 2 clamps each on the lateral positions, like =O= the bolts/clamps between the tips interfere so the centermost tip had to be offset much more than i would like (about 1/2"). And considering they are autozone tips that will also rust away eventually its not worth welding them on instead. Maybe ill trim down the inner clamps to make it work better. But anyway
