A standard push mower will fit in the hatch FYI! I bought one last summer and it fit with room to spare

Installed rear-view camera, from eBay, using OEM retrofit harness. I'm happy that it's done, but front to back harness routing is always tedious although not difficult. Followed Volkswagens directions to the letter, including unwrapping parts of the OEM harness to splice in the new one. The adhesive on OEM wire loom tape tape is absolutely horrendous.

If you value your sanity just use an add-a-fuse. I chose to risk state of mind and wire into the back of the fuse holder like the instructions say. VW says "lower the fuse holder" with a note that says dash need not be removed for this... While technically true it is an incredible pain in the rear lower it... not worth it, never again.

Last couple pics are of my vinyl wrapped AID bezel, and the fiber optic cable coiled up behind main screen. Figured since screen and MIB 2 were out already I'd fish that through too. Hopefully get AID installed this week

Installed a US Millworks front license plate mount. Highly recommend!



Also gave her another bath after our recent 1700 mile road trip.

New wing mirror covers. Black roof soon hopefully, also have wing deflectors ready to fit.

Which deflectors did you go with? Curious if any issues contacting when the mirrors are folded up. Only thing holding me back from getting some, seems most I've read comments on so far get that problem.

Installed custom steering wheel. Took awhile to get, but worth it! Looks and feels amazing!

I went for the team heko ones. I'll be putting them on Friday so will post up here again. Hopefully no problems, although I pretty much never put my mirrors up anyway

Where did you get it from, and were you able to choose all the design details?

I got it from Control Custom Steering Wheel. Yup! You can customize the color of sticking, whether you want suede, carbon fiber (different types of carbon too), alcantara, whether you want a steering wheel ring and color, and different trim bezel. Worth it!

Sounds expensive... OEM quality though? Looks nice. My one gripe about the factory GTI steering wheel in my '19 is the lack of perforated leather at 10 & 2.

I live in the city itself - Eckington neighborhood. The pic is at my future in-laws house in Silver Spring. That's where I keep all my tools, car wash stuff etc.
