What's you thoughts on it so far?

Honestly I really felt weird walking into a shop, and 30 minutes later walking out after paying and “hoping” it’s legit been done. I have trust issues.

But the shop is reputable…

I probably won’t really be able to notice until after another race event or two. I’m hoping this finishes the car off as far as what I’ve done to it to give me that last little competitive edge.

Got the windows tinted. First time doing this on any car and I'm not sure why I waited so long!

I went with Llumar CTX @ 50% all around. It's subtle but that's exactly what I wanted.

I am considering exactly the same. Have any more photos from different angles?

You should do Air80 on the windshield

Inspection light: Checked fluids / tire pressure (incl. donut) / oil change ... ready for the next 3000+km roadtrip. Germany - Austria - Slovenia - Croatia and back.

Next planned mod: Add an access door to the Alltrack skid plate. It's pita to remove it w/o a lift.

Have you thought of an oil extractor? Seems easier, actually it is easier.
Thanks. I've thought about an extractor, but with the pit in our garage oil changes on our Beetle and Polo are so quick and easy. On my GTI it takes longer to remove the 14 bolts of the belly pan. Only 5 are easy accessible. I know 1st world problems...

Hmm... How you thinking of adding an access door? Just more of an access hole, or what you plan on doing?

Step by step? Would love to do this on my golf r
It won't be super soon, I've got a 6 month old and my wife has a broken leg so time is... limited, haha. But I'll try and give a semi step by step in my build thread at some point, wouldn't make much sense in this thread to do more than the summary you quoted.
