Installed my Cobb ABS heat shield.

I couldn't find any clear info for installation and the only video about it is leaving out a key part out, which is there is a squeeze tab at the bottom of the factory shield. Pinch (upward) and THEN it wiggles right off; the video just implies a little jiggle and it's off. Took about 15 minutes before I put two and two together... it takes less than ten seconds to do. Felt like a dolt.

You would buy the first outright, then when you need the replacement you would also buy that second / third / fourth and then get a refund for the second / third / fourth item when you return the first / second / third item.
So in essence i would pay only once (my wallet would be down only once) -- for the first order, because every subsequent order would be refunded?

I wrapped up my tstat/.waterpump, injector work. This took me way longer than it should have, as most things do. The car was on stands for three days total. I lost a day and a half because I did not have a stubby 17m to put the fuel line back on after the intake manifold was seated. The bolts at the bottom of the throttle body are a bitch - used three extensions to get to three of them. Coolant everywhere, messy job. Next time I'll take it to a shop. Not worth it. All works well, no leaks, no CEL's. Went for a pull, did not get a misfire or a hesitation up top in third, the injectors may have fixed my issue. Found out another pleasant surprise. Thought my iABED RMS was leaking, turns out it was just coolant that made its way down there, so, that's a plus. Car is in good shape, just need to remove a bit of rust by the wheel well on the rear quarter panel before winter and I'll be happy. I have a catch can and sway bar that are waiting to be installed, but.... That just feels like something I'll do next spring. I'm done turning wrenches for a bit.

I got a pull in at 6am on the drive into work too lol. 6.0 Powerstroke pulled a sneaky and left hard while I was sitting in neutral at a light. I came around him at the top of 3rd and got a thumbs up at the next light.

Fully detailed my car.

Daily driving road grime, all over, is a drag.
Its a pain for sure, especially when always driving it. Doesn't stay clean for nothing lol.

I'm amazed at how much brake dust and dirt accumulates in the door sills. I'm wondering if slash guards would help.

I have splashguards and dirty sills. I don't think they really get THAT dirty though, so maybe they do help. Sample size of 1. Very helpful.

I still love those Audi wheels on the Golf body style. Most more pics any time you like 😍
