Put on a bunch of Badgeskins (pics in that thread) and installed the Pedal Commander. I like it. Only pause now that I can tell is turbo lag. Definitely need one for my wife's Tiguan. Pedal pause on that one borders on dangerous at times.

Routed cord behind the mat and under the mat pin to keep it away from moving parts. Stored in side compartment. Can control via app, only change when stopped so no phone use while driving concerns.

Who makes the Pedal Commander and how much is it?

The fit and finish I would rate a 9 or 9.5/10 - for the money they are damn good! The OEM lights (and these) are secured by two small torx screws, and the company I bought from even included a small screwdriver and trim removal tool to aid install - nice touch!






I feel these 'frosted white' dynamic mirror lights suit the Pure White perfectly! Might be hard to tell in this pic, but the subtle difference is apparent, at least to me haha!

Have a link for those? Been thinking about snagging a pair and those look good

This is what I found, I got interested, too. I think I'll stick to my original plan, which is buying the BMS pedal tuner.

That should be it. I got it a bit cheaper since they included a military discount. At the time I was actually getting one for my truck, but wound up trading it in for the GTI and they let me change the order. Didn't know there were other pedal managers at the time, but no regrets anyway.

Installed coilovers today. Took me the better part of 9 hours with basic hand tools and the car on stands. It was a huge pain actually. But all done and no knocking. Everything is torqued, snug, and measured (but will make one final adjustment tomorrow). Cant wait to put them to use! Oh, and an alignment on Tuesday...

Thought about cleaning car, thought again then didn't. Shocking I know. But removed a floormat and hung it in the (house) window to dry after clumsily spilling a bottle of water over it. Discovered in the past if it was just left in the car, the windows would likely steam up....

Geez. That sucks. Not a dig at you per se, but I've never fully understood how that happens. Did you not see the massive pothole/crater that must've caused that? What kind of wheels?

Oklahoma roads got a 2 for 1 deal Thursday morning. Replacements get here Tuesday. Tires survived unscathed, but the wheels not so much. (The one may be fixable for use as a spare though.)
What the crap?

Wasn't a pothole, it was a disheveled asphalt patch. It was the kind that runs across the entire road when they are doing construction, running a pipe, etc. It only stuck up 2-2.5 inches, but I must have hit it just right. It was 4AM, raining, and I had been up since 5:30AM Wednesday. Perfect storm lol. Only 2500 miles or so on the wheels too.
That would have shredded my tire, wheel and suspension

If I may, where did you find those GTI wheel center caps to go with those F04's?
