Wel done! I've been waiting on mine to arrive. Can't wait for this one. Nice, clean mod that rly gives it that fresh look that ppl just can't quite put their finger on.



Very well said and the exact reason I did it[emoji41]that being said make sure you have those plastic pry tools, I got mine from deauto when I did the LED upgrades, they are a must! Can't wait to see it with a red GTI![emoji1531]

Was gonna go with that one but didn't want to use the epoxy so got the one from urotuning which is a rubber o-ring and machined aluminum real easy to reverse and ended up being really flush anyways, either one looks good![emoji41]

Took an unused SD card, uploaded some of my favourite pictures and played a slideshow in my car! It's the small things.

Wash, Claybar, Wax - First time since I bought it. Just some Mothers Reflections Car Wax & Top Coat. Didn't have any sealant with me though. Any good suggestions?

cuss word!

I narrowly avoided a crazy SUV driver that cut me off yesterday on my way into work JUST after passing a work zone. Swerved between two traffic barrels, narrowly missed the first, tagged the second one on the passenger side of the front bumper & fender.

Nut case cut me off again and brake checked me after passing within inches of my front bumper.:eek::mad:

Called 911 and reported the crazy driver and gave them his tag number. They couldn't do anything other than put a report out on him for aggressive driving.

I gave it a quick touch free wash last night on my way home and today I got a bit of rubbing alcohol put on a microfiber cloth to get the last bit of scuffs out of the paint since cleaner/wax didn't do much to remove the scuffs.

In the end I'm happy with the outcome... No one was hurt, though at the time of the incident I was LIVID. Damage was much less then I initially though or expected. They seem to make those traffic barrels to absorb impacts and not cause significant damage to cars that hit them. I had to be going 50mph on impact :eek:

Actually I did have a dash cam up and running during this episode.

I may turn it into the local state police station. However I doubt that much could be done.

I just detailed the whole outside of the car for the first time today. The damage looks very minor. Should be able to get it all fixed myself (used to detail cars for a couple years) for ~$100.
