Installed Ed's rep headlights in my 2020 S! Holy moly do they look great. Just need to aim them tonight once it gets dark. Down the road I may put a protective film on as I've read that these can show signs of age after a year or so, though.

On an additional note, I bought a flexible screwdriver extension that allowed me to install them without taking the bumper off, which I was very pleased with.

I’ll recommend coating them with either a film or even a clear coat. UV protection is what most of the aftermarket lights lack and they will show age much sooner than the OEM lights. I had a set of his lights on my mk6 that I had a painter clear coat and they looked new for years.

Thank you for the heads up! Was it literally just an auto clear coat?

I can’t talk, I own some of their parts.

Picked up an OEM exhaust today. Tired of a loud car, also want to pickup the Verus diffuser and it doesn’t fit great with aftermarket exhausts from what I’ve read.

My experience seems to be unique apparently. But ecs won’t be getting any more of my money. To be lied to three different times on three different transactions. I can’t. Meanwhile urotuning and shopdap shoot straight and set proper expectations

Installed OEM alarm siren to get that fancy chirp. Kit was about 65 bucks on AliExpress which isn’t too bad. Install took about 2 hours as I was taking my time making everything look OEM as far as wiring. View attachment 206105View attachment 206106
Did you happen to make a video of the chirp sound? Would love to hear the sound. Also, what model year you have? I have a 2020 MK7.5 GTI and last time I check OBDEleven, didn't supported too much yet on this platform to code the new siren after the installation.
Probably too late to ask but I would have loved to see a video on the installation steps specially, all the work around the "Master Fuse Box".
