      Jak,
      Have you done this to your R32? It isn't hard, (about an 1.1 hrs) and only about $75 thru TMTuning w/ the bottle opener...

      Old Puny links and bar go bye bye

      Hello shiny new parts

      I would but I installed the sway bar and the endlinks together. But going from the stock sway bar and endlinks to the new Neuspeed set, it was like night and day! The car takes the turns so beautifully now. Definitely a great set to have

      i see. i have the neuspeed RSB, but no fancy end links. probably saving this for later consideration. for now i'm saving for the original unibrace, which many mkIV folks say is a much more effective addition than a RSB itself. hmmm.

      I have been debating on wether or not to get the unibrace. But the next mod I plan on saving for is ECU & DSG upgrade which I still haven't got done yet. Then I'm looking into FK Silverline X coils

      Not yet, but may be looking to do so in the near future.

      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.

      Unsure at the moment. Looks like I'm forced to invest some money on repairing my passenger front CV boot. Remember when my tire tread came off on I-4? Well it apparently wrapped around my axle and damage the CV boot. Hopefully we can do a boot kit, otherwise it's a new axle for me. $480ish with a $200 core refund.

      That's an interesting look. How does it hold up to road debris and wear? I'd like to see close ups.

      If it holds up like my old GTI grill, I should have no problem at all. It was a pain in the butt to tape everything off. I can take a close up if you want. Just remember I didn't do the greatest job as I knew this was an experiment before painting. I also have to work on the plate holes. I used a plastic epoxy weld and the stuff is rock hard. I think I am going to use a razor and dig some out and use a body puddy to smooth the holes better.

      1. Go to Autozone and buy plastic weld epoxy.( it has two different types of fluid that have to mix)
      2. Ruff edges around holes so epoxy has something to bond to.
      3. I placed electrical tape behind the holes. I'm sure you could use other types of tape.
      4. Mix epoxy on some type of hard surface and mix quick.( Turns to goo real fast)
      5. Scrape goo in holes. I suggest you don't fill all the way to the top. This way, you can place some sanding puddy/bondo over. This is also easier to sand than the hardened glue. I now have to scrape/cut some of the glue to place the puddy in for sanding.
      6. Let cure over night.
      7. Bondo.
      8. Sand down till smooth.
      9. Tape off what you want plasti-dipped/painted.
      10. Enjoy.

      regarding that point, i strongly suggest you DO NOT DO THIS. rather, while at Autozone, buy a body patch kit. it will come with some self-adhering wire mesh that covers the back of the holes, then it can be smeared over with a thick layer of epoxy/bondo. let dry and contour sand the front. the mesh patch will have your back if you get a rock hitting right on the patch. merely taping it can allow the epoxy to pop through the hole.
