Oops!

Does it disable it, or just move it a few degrees colder?
"Disable" was a poor choice of words. It edits the settings. I'm away from the car; so, I cannot recall the specific temperatures. But I recall that the temps that I can edit can be set to such a low number that the warning would be effectively disabled in my region. Worst case, the chime would sound only at points where, "Yeah, I know it's cold!" 😅

I'm sold, on the CW shifter that is. Already have the Sigma 6 but just read the 2021 improvements on the product page. So they added the "nutbar" for front-back and went to cable end inserts for the side-side? Adjustment was the only negative for the Sigma 6... I know my adjustment could be better but it was such a pain that I've just left it as is, for years.

Assuming I can even find my original side-side cable end, $40 to make the switch is probably worth it for better adjustment.

For the shifter I went here, assuming you selected 02M?
I wouldn’t switched out your side to side end-link, just order a second nut bar like I did, comes to $27 shipped, then you still have the fully solid nature of the metal endlinks but you don’t need to fish and wrench underneath it anymore, just your one Allen key or socket.


Yeah the undermount 02M(O2Q) unit in the link is correct they really only make 2 units for the VW - top mount and bottom mount, top will sit higher and probably cannot fit with console and will require you to drill the tunnel for cables (but sure does look cooler, lol)

Depending on your OEM shifter boxes number you may need to add a spacer in cables connections cause as VW fashion the changed from metal locking pin to a plastic one.

@El_bigote_AJ fitting into the center console is a must for me. This thing is already a hard sell to my wife, haha. And buying two bars makes way more sense than looking for the old cable end 🤦‍♂️.

I'll have to look into the spacer thing, my car is a 2015, 2014 build. What, if any, are you running for a shift boot? I don't see one in the video you just posted but I thought I saw one in one of your other posts in the past I'll dig through the forum.

Running my custom one that was made before I switched shifters, this unit is much bigger than oem trim too, so you can run the oem type boot without modding it or CJM can make you a panel if you like that look. If I didn’t have the fancy trim already made I wanted to have a clear plexi plate made with edge lighting to show off the fixture.

That CJM plate is clean. Your idea of a plexi plate with edge lighting would be pretty sweet as well. Easy to tie into x58 dash lighting in that spot as well to make it dimmable. There's 12VDC variable and ground right there at switches around the shifter.

Looking at your custom piece though it looks like the stock boot/surround should work anyway, no? I have no problem with the way the stock trim looks, but I want an alcantara boot to match my seats. Nothing wrong with my current boot but I don't want to buy something that I can use now that I won't be able to use with the CW shifter. In the name of saving $70, haha.

I was about to install my new Apex wheels and noticed some grease on my tie rod. Upon closer inspection I noticed a small hole in my cv boot. Car has 19,200 miles so I’m assuming I damaged it at some point during my suspension install. If it wasn’t for the new wheels I wouldn’t have had a reason to remove the wheels currently on the car. $ well spent.
So many firsts with this car and replacing an axle boot will be one. I’d like to source the boot and axle flange bolts from FCP but I’m not seeing the flange bolts. I have the 24mm single axle bolt from my suspension install and a pair of bull nose pliers so it won’t be a terribly expensive repair.
I pride myself on my attention to detail but sometime things happen.

Not today, but first time I took some decent pics. Installed the BEC euro tails. Anyone have suggestions for tinting/matching the rear bumper reflectors (cherry red)? The clashing reds bug me lol
You could throw those honeycomb covers in! As long as your state doesn’t require those reflectors

Yeah oem style Alcantara will fit great and be able to zip tie Around the shaft, mine cannot cause the boot is really short

Bought a new battery for my GTI. Car wasn't cranking to start at all today. Went and replaced the battery and now it turns on. Now I got an error on the airbags, tried clearing it with OBD11 but didn't work smh. Oh, and the RMS is still leaking lol *bashes head against the wall*

Installed my Accessport and flashed EQT Stage 2 and Cobb DSG (will flash EQT DSG once I get the file). Also installed RS7 plugs per EQT recommendation.

PS how do my old plugs look? These have 33k miles on them, half of that with JB4 Map 1.
