Looks good, wish they were not so proud of those or I would get one.Installed 8” glass screen to my 2016 SE. Purchased from Eurozone Tuning. Install took about 20mins. Wrapped the bezel in CF wrap to match the rest but it’s been a while and I’m rusty You can see the obvious bubble. Couldn’t smooth it out. Will redo at a later date.

Have a larger pic? CF wrap I would think would be a nice upgrade over the chiny finger print heavy plastic stuff.Installed 8” glass screen to my 2016 SE. Purchased from Eurozone Tuning.

You can find the screen (used) for ~$250 shipped on eBayLooks good, wish they were not so proud of those or I would get one.
Looks good, wish they were not so proud of those or I would get one.
You can find the screen (used) for ~$250 shipped on eBay
5G6919605B - screen with nav
5G6919605C - screen without nav (these are a harder to find)
And the bezel brand new from several VW parts dealers for ~175
That puts you around $450... not cheap but more than $200 less than EZT.
Nice. Which shop was this? I need to get my PP drained. Hehe, that sounds wrong. I need my diff fluid changed.Got it inspected for COTA track day on Sunday. I'm in novice group, so only 2 x 30 min sessions with an instructor. Intermediate next time will be 5 sessions.
So here's how you know you have a good shop.
They told me my ECS bleeder block is leaking. If I want to change it to an oem one. Sure. Sounds good.
Then I remembered the yellow delay valve so after about an hour, text them back if they can remove it before installing.
Text back that mechanic already installed the block, but she would ask.
Get a text back "He removed it, haha he said your not working with first graders."
Get there and there's the little yellow diaphragm taped to my paperwork. He had already removed it before I even reached out.
Good find, I went ahead and watch-listed that. It's the part# I need so I will try to get it. Appreciate the help.Man, if you're patient and diligent with looking, you can even do it for half of that.
A couple tips for anyone looking to do this:
When searching on eBay, make sure to do an Advanced search for the part number, and check the box "Search including titles and descriptions". Many of them don't include the part number in the title, but do in the description. I got one for $140 that way (5G6919605C):

Really look at the auctions, and take advantage that you can return just about anything purchased on eBay. I'm not saying 'abuse' it, but with a lot of these auctions it's hard to tell exactly what you're going to get. Like, look at this auction for example:
It says it's for part 5G6919605C, but doesn't include a single picture of what is actually being sold. But it is from a car with 9,000 miles on it, that was totaled in a rear end accident. That screen is probably pristine, since it's a newer car with low miles, in an accident that shouldn't have impacted it whatsoever. However, if you get something broken or damaged, or the wrong part (that happened to me), just return it.
Grab the trim off AliExpress for under $40 - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002680410738.html
I had no problems doing the upgrade for under $200.
Gave it a wash, and took it out to take some photos. My wife complained I didn't have any good photos that aren't in our driveway, and asked me to go take some. My birthday is in a week, so I assume it's something birthday related, since she'd never just go "Why don't you go out and take some photos of your car?"
