This one arrived yesterday. Surprised it was not sent on a box, but they arrived intact. They were wrapped in shrink-wrap, inside a bubble-bag, and covered in two1/4" foam sheets. Clarity of the plastic is great and it has the black trim area the OEM have. No DOT markings may mean trouble by some in some states where they analyze every crap on a car on state inspections. I already received the glass sanding sheets and polishing glaze. I'm going to probably do this over the fathers day weekend, unless I decide to order an intercooler to do both at the same time since I have to take the bumper off. They are clearly marked for the MK7.5.

The polycarbonate don't seem any stronger than the OEM, so this will be covered in PPF or Lamin-X as soon as the install is done.

Placed the order 15 May, so a few days over 2 weeks ship time from China.

Also bought the small covers for the door check, which sell for $4.44 each at VW, for the grand price of $3.06 shipped for all four. Already installed, they click into place with no play at all.

FedEx dropped off a set of Vredestein Hypertrac tires.

I didn't really want to leave the UHP all-season category (yeah, yeah) but wanted a slightly more comfort-focused tire. These will replace the BF Goodrich Comp-2 A/S Pluses currently on the car which are excellent but definitely on the sportier side of the spectrum.

I've had lots of tires from Michelin and Continental over the years and decided to try a new brand this time. If the Tire Rack testing and reviews are to be believed, these can mostly hang with the big boys like the PSAS4 and DWS06+. Excited to get them mounted and see.
