      Scheduled a DIY 40K service with a friend. Ordered a Gen 2 Haldex Controller to be installed at that time.

      Rotated my summer tires.

      Just touching the wear bars on the former fronts (now rears). Also noted more wear on the LH tires, as they take the most abuse on my CW track days.

      I have a fresh set of Direzza Star Specs on my other set of rims, just trying to squeeze the last bit of life out of these...

      Over the last two days I have installed a set of smoked tail light lenses and removed the factory radio and replaced it with an RNS-510. After install had sirius radio and traffic alerts activated. Tail lights look great and new Nav/Rad works great and tunes sound much better. Then today after washing my R, I clay bricked the entire car then brought the Deep Blue Pearl to an incredible shine with Mother's pure carnuba wax. Now I'm enjoying a cold beer. Cheers

      Sold my stock trim, and went to brushed aluminum for now. I'm probably going to do something different with the trim soon.

      Installed .:R32 door sills.

      On that note, I just finished wiring up both my flapper switches. I've got the OEM flapper in the right tip on my Borla exhaust and in the place of the Borla resonator....a striaght pipe with a cutout and another flapper.

      The Borla without res sounds amazing. Its pretty loud, but the flapper in the tip knocks the decibels down for when you don't want to be noticed.

      The cutout is LOUD.

      I'll post more details, pics, and videos soon

      Rims and tyres arrived this morning. Continental Sport Contact 2's practically new (came off a Mk6 about 500km's on them) and the rims look in good condition

      To add to Saabstory02's pics above here are some more shots. The light above my parking spot went out overnight, so its a bit dark. I'll try to get some daytime shots outside sometime soon.

      Dang it! I was really hoping that you had the OEM ones. Those look nice though and thanks for the pictures!

      Does anyone have good pics of the OEM door sills installed?

      Anxious to see and hear this. When I had my Borla, I was considering cutting the resonator out.

      Yesterday:

      Spent 40 minutes using a car wash bay to do the best exterior cleaning I've ever performed on a car, in hopes of finally snapping some photos of it in an urban environment before work today.

      This morning - found a nail in my driver side rear tire.

      This afternoon - drove the Jetta to work

      This evening - intense rainfall.

      Not today , but Sunday had my rear window scratched to hell by my tint guy. He had to retint my back window. And the sponge he used to remove the glue scratched the **** out of the inside of my window. He must have thought I wouldn't notice and retinted it. But after all the water dried , you can see it's scratched up bad. Gunna be giving him a call tomorrow.

      After a fair amount of pacing, I decided to take my R to the local pseudo-billy Chevrolet dealership to get the galvanized nail removed from my tire along with a patch job. I pulled up to the service bay, got inside and dealt with the "oh hey you don't buy 'merican?" looks, and then reluctantly handed over the keys and went into the waiting lounge. About 5 minutes later I hear the rumble, and after seeing the reflection of the tail lights moving back and forth a bit (from my view on the lid of a stainless steel trashcan), and I hear a few mild blips of the exhaust.

      I wasn't the least bit upset.

      Later they came out and tell me its ready, homeboy takes me to the desk to fill out the paper work...

      "Is that thing pretty quick?"
      *insert common posts from 'funny things people say about your R' and my stereotypical R'owner responses*

      Swipe the card, walk outside to a see a moderately well done complimentary wash job and no damage to the wheel from it being removed. Satisfying exhale, and a short drive home.

      I have never felt this way about a car of mine being in the hands of other people before.


      Oh, and I managed to get myself spooked away from potentially getting the UM combo done this weekend after lurking around the board, so I looked at my car with nothing more than a concerned face during my commute.

      Deleted my SAI hanging over the exhaust manifold last night, going to clean up all the lines on the passanger side of the valve cover tonight and I will only be left with fuel feed and return on that side of the head. Also going to install an 034 motorsports fuel rail tonight.




      Also had time to install some FFE Racing delrin motor mount inserts for VF mounts.
