The GPS on the head unit is actually really great. Very accurate, and actually very smooth. I have the GPS sensor and bluetooth mic ran to the top driver side corner of the windshield so it is out of the way but still usable
- Installed my low profile engine trim
- Separated my new holeless, Plastidipped grill so I could mount magnetic plate holder
- Installed Magnets; only to have epoxy fail due to insanely high humidity
- reinstalled magnets, allowing Epoxy to cure inside house to avoid humidity...
- Took pics of my failing EVOMS intake trim to send to Ian
- Mounted my Front plate on my passenger visor temporarily until I can finish my grill and get it installed...
- Drank a beer and stared forlornly at my grill-less front end

Brake fluid flush w/ Super Blue... (ooohs and awwwws) yeah right.
Motive Bleeder is money. First time using a pressure bleeder.
Cycled the ABS pump.
The 2.5 y/o fluid looked a little yellowed. I did notice a VERY small bit of air in the lines.
I figure 2 years down the road I'll flush it with the Typ 200 from ATE. The undyed version of super blue. It really helped having different colored fluid.
insert cheap credibility statement here...
I went for a spirited drive at lunch today, I got a call from my DAD out of the blue yelling at me to slow down ..(... yell yell yell, pause .. yell slow down yell click.. ) I didn't even see him pass by. oops.
that euro cup holder will be my next interior mod. looks great.
I have the Neuspeed springs sitting in my garage. Got them from a friend of mine but never got around to getting them installed. I also have to get the intake from him and that needs to get installed. But if the ups tracking doesn't fail I should have some goodies coming in tomorrow!

I'm a huge fan of my H&R Springs, and to compare I had Bilstein PSS9's on my MKV GTI. Perfect height for an aggressive look without much worry. I won't be doing coil-overs since I'm so happy with the look of my car and ride. Progressive springs ftw.
Today, installed an MFD2 Nav that I've had for many months.
