      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?

      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
      Can't wait to hear this!

      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.
