Re: Platinum Grey Time Line
Looking good as always bud, my car is def due for a good bath. Just picked up some Meguiar's compound
Sunday was supposed to be my day to pamper the GLI and check it over...that didn't happen. Went to Waffle House in the morning with Dan, Chris, and Chris, and then that trickled over into Chris coing over for an axle socket, and then the other Dan came over for LED tail lamps re-pinning and coding and talking. By then, I just wanted to wash the car and relax before work. Not sure when I'll have another day to do this.
Also going to say this here: if you were one of the morons that kept posting pointless crap in the last few pages of PSU's R32 thread, f*ck you. You got one of the most informative and well put together timeline threads locked because you wanted to be "funny".
This is why I debate every day deleting my account. Childish stupid crap that is getting out of hand
Finally placed a parts order:
- 1J0-973-702 (license plate housing connectors for PSU)
- 1K1-819-415-B-9B9 (rain tray...the GLI one is broken)
- 1K0-947-109-71N (visor bulb housing...the R32 one is cracked)
- 06F-103-235 (oil breather tube...broken clip)
- 1K0-201-051-K (fuel filter...GLI was due 5,000 miles ago)
- ECS Tuning aluminum oil filter housing
Been putting the rain tray, visor bulb housing, and oil breather tube off for too long. But, maintenance is paramount. Hopefully this all gets here ASAP. The oil filter housing is the only thing that is "urgent". Being that I ordered from 1stVWparts.com, and four of those parts are special order, it will be a few days until I get them.
Still wondering what the difference between my housing and the early year housings are
I know when I first got the jetta, the housing was wet around the seal area, 1st oil change ended up with the same problem, so far this time is good, but not a big fan of the plastic housing anyways
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.

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.
If you only do half the hood and half the fenders you can see the cutoff line.
No more Volkswagen
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.
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.
Yikes, thats gonna be a crazy trip then
