      I did not, but I don't have any problems with how it sounds with them.

      Very easy to unplug the A pillar tweeters as the A pillar just pulls right off with a trim tool. Takes about 5 minutes.

      That was the plan originally but we decided to wait for the grill to arrive. It's the first MK7 shave he's done so we figured it was better safe than sorry.

      I can probably do it, if you want. I did the same thing on my MK6 GLI.

      This is the real key to all of this. I think some people are missing the point about financing and assuming that financing is being made because there is no other money available.

      I can pay for my car in full today if I want to. But having the same $30,000 invested WORKING for me, gaining me MORE money, instead of being sunk into a...

      I'm not sure what point you're trying to make, but you certainly don't come close to coming even at 5%.

      $30,000 @ 1.9% interest for 72 months is $1766 cost of interest

      Thanks. I don't believe I'll be selling them. These particular ones were shipped off to a friend of mine and I'm going to make slightly different ones for myself, along with matching steering wheel...

      Good price, just keep in mind, you'll need to purchase 2 of those. Soumatrix considers each speaker as two speakers, as the tweeter is inside the woofer.

      Avoiding debt for things that you don't need is a good rule of thumb. Taking on debt for things like clothing, food, etc is stupid.

      Onto the rears....

      I'd assume on the 4 door Golf/GTI, the rears are exactly the same (or very similar) to the fronts. On the 2 door version, its pretty different, but still just as easy.
