Received some more Badgeskins today. I already did the front and back GTI's from red to black and had done the fender badges, but debadged those last weekend. This time I went for the stereo power button, the airbag warning light, and a black ring and clear protective skin for the start button. Lastly I got red TSI and VW badges for the engine cover. The engine cover ones look pretty great to me.

A few days ago I got the Proclips phone mount too, and I really like it. For years I used the ones that mount to the air vents, and despite this one costing 3-4x the amount of those I feel like it was worth it. Granted I can control my phone from the steering wheel and the touch screen, but I plan on getting the JB4 w/ Bluetooth in the near future and having my phone clearly visible seemed helpful.

And also this because I'm a huge dork.

That looks good! Idk how I feel about zip ties but that does look good! The stock inno connectors work better when you get the extended long bolts for them, but they end up being longer than I’d like. That does look clean tho!
Thanks! Regarding the zipties, due to the concave and perfect fitment around the bars, the zipties really have no load on them, especially when driving...the wind pushes the holders into the bar. Plus, there are a ton of VW owners of ALL models that have half their engine and suspension parts being held in place by ...... zipties lol

Well seeing as how the car fuel door and the manual both says 87 for fuel type I would hope it can run on 87 lol

yeah when i first started upping the fuel % I remember thinking about how expensive its gonna be ect lol now I don't even think about it
I've been fortunate enough that I've never had to "pay attention" to gas prices. I figure that its something I will always need so theres no reason to get too stingy about it. I've just always put 91 or better in it since I got it so I dont think about it anymore either, just filler up

Where from and how much? Looks so good
I got it off Ebay from China. Price was $700 US but I get to keep my stock wheel, so in the future if I sell the car I can switch it out and sell the wheel. Just checked and the guy has raised his price considerably, so you may want to look at other alternatives.

Looks like EZT raised their prices a bit as well. I dont remember a GTI wheel no bag being $1k, but it is now.
