Finally got around to installing the blind spot monitoring mirror caps + LEDs. Straight from Ali, but had the mirror caps color-matched Dark Iron Blue to match the stock ones. Many many thanks to @Nuje for advice, @mr-fix for a phenomenal DIY video, and @xabhax / @Cuzoe et al. for the inspiration. Huge improvement over the stock dinky mirror lights, imo.

Ya, I'll never understand why vw would have given other cars this light, but the golfs got the worst blind spot indicators.

I wish I had a garage. There’s been plenty of evenings when I’ve been bored and wanted to mess with the GTI and it’s been too dark. This is the first car I’ve ever done stuff to myself and it turns out wrenching on a car is fun as hell

Regretting my Seibon Carbon Fiber Hood Impulse purchase.

Seibon CF hood on Black Friday $995


Rex Super sport CF Hood $650.

So the Question is, Is Seibon worth the Extra $345? I'm going with No, even if the fitment is a bit off. Only thing is that I prefer the clean hood vs having the Bonnet Hood. Do I hate it enough to spend $345 extra? 🤔 💸💸🥲

I need to contact Seibon! Stop the steal!

You can't get an oem hood, and have it painted for 650. I think it isn't a bad purchase. You might be able to sell it in a couple months for more than you paid for it.

Clay barred the car this morning in preparation for some ceramic wax this afternoon. My harbor freight buffer died after 15 years so Black Friday deal time it is.

I think it’s normal for STFT to bounce around during regular driving. The key is where it is at WOT.
What are they at idle when stopped and WOT?
STFT during WOT was between -5 and -11. At 5k RPMs, -5. At 7k RPMs, -11. LTFT was -1. I also attached the log (probably not the best log). Not sure if this matters but just under 3/4 tank of gas.
