That sucks... That photo of the stuff of nightmares after switching to 19”s lol. Beautiful car though. Since you have the APR Plus tune are you still under warranty?

Thanks and yup, kind of regretting not stepping down to 18’s and having the beefier sidewall (although I don’t know that it would have mattered in this case - hit a really large rock sitting in the middle of the road).

As for warranty, APR now covers the powertrain for the remainder of the factory term (6 years/72k), any non-powertrain issues still fall under the VW factory warranty. I *believe* that the powertrain portion of the factory warranty is still technically also there (just unlikely to result in work being done under warranty).

Golfs everyday

Sorry to see on your bent wheel. Can you get that fixed and use as a spare?

I too bent an OZ wheel a few yrs ago on my GTI and the DWS06 on that wheel was fine. Insurance paid for a new wheel with tire however as the set was still fairly new and they thought it would be safer.

I was really debating going with the Milltek catback with black tips, but realized that all I was after was the aesthetic of the black tips - wasn’t looking for a change in the exhaust note and with the APR Plus tune, it wasn't going to make a difference in performance.

I decided to just go with the tips...just for a second...just to see how it feels

Courtesy of Xzibit Customs in Manassas VA - high temp gloss black painted tips on the OEM exhaust. This was done with the exhaust on the vehicle and have to say that I’m very impressed with the work Hans from Xzibit did!



Oh, and also more LEDs...

I decided to make a change and went from the Badgeskins Vinyl logos (which are quite good) to custom painted metallic candy-apple red (thanks again to Xzibit Customs for fantastic work). I feel it’s still very subtle, but really like the additional small detail.

I also decided to swap on an APR Turbo Muffler Delete....yeahhhhhh...not the best use of money ever. My goal was a bit more sweet turbo noise and I was holding out hope I might see some ever-so-slightly improved throttle response. At least it’s a nice looking black color if I really look down in my engine bay?
