      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

      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?

      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.
