      "Christof,

      We currently have an inventory of these grilles made and are in the process of determining the cost effectiveness of further developing the design/project.

      We are also having difficulty in achieving a test car to use with adjusting our design as all local cars are either unavailable or are falling through with appointments made.

      Should we develop a revised grille, i will be notifying all customers. My apologies.

      Regards,
      Derek @ GRID Motorsports"

      Still waiting on the body shop. Once this is all done, I will be getting a clear bra put on the bumper and front section of the hood. Might as well protect the brand new paint.

      There is a place in Emmaus that is well priced. I will let you know once I get a quote. I used to refer my customers there.

      Sounds good! Probably would have the whole front end done (Bumper, hood, fenders) just cause of how damn picky I am. **** it, whole car works

      If you only do half the hood and half the fenders you can see the cutoff line.

      It's not that bad. I have seen many cars with half the hood and you can't even notice it until you are about 3 feet away...and it doesn't look bad. Black cars, maybe. But especially on grey, it is very hard to see.

      Got a call from 1stVWparts.com today. Have to cancel the rain tray due to shipping costs. Just going to try to pick it up locally. They said that UPS always seems to snap the rain trays and they cost a lot to ship. I appreciate their phone call. I also had them confirm the breather tube and I actually had found a superceded part for the TSI and he fixed it to the FSI part.

      Sucks about the rain tray, but at least they were honest about it

      True. I love dealing with honest people and dealerships, regardless of how much money is being spent.

      GLI is done at the body shop. Will be picking it up in the morning. Hopefully, their repair and paint meet my quality standards. If they don't, the car will not be leaving. Weather and time permitting, I may do an oil change Saturday after work. I will do a nice little review of the oil filter housing as well.

      too bad they only ship UPS into Canada, otherwise I would buy from them more often.

      Ok. Car is home. They took the hood off to repair it and found more bubbling. It was deemed cheaper to replace the hood. I am actually shocked how quick they got a hood and painted.

      What I am not happy with, is that the car is filthy. There is buffing compound on the mirror caps, fenders, and grille. There was so much dust on it from being inside the shop, on the outside and the engine bay. Filthy. Then add pollen from being outside and the morning dew. Also, someone took it upon themselves to play with my wink mirror. The bracket was removed and reinstalled, who knows why.

      I spoke with the body shop manager about this and he is clueless. He said that hoods that are new are never buffed on a car. He said he also asked that my car specifically was cleaned up for me because of how nice it is (I got a chuckle out of that). They offered me a coupon to a local car wash but it is an auto wash that I can't drive through. I hate to do this, but I need to detail the car and see if I find anything else.

      Trust me, i'm still cleaning buffing compound out of my car from when pedro did the rear quarter and fender. Seems that stuff gets in everywhere. Sucks big time, and why the **** are they playing around inside the car. There's a touchless carwash on broadway in fountain hill that is lower car friendly and does a great job

      Yeah...no clue. I was upset when I saw the mirror was touched.

      Is this car wash an automated one or to people wash it?
