      Was given a long overdue vac 'n bath. Plus she is now modeling her black plastic hubcaps on oem steel wheels + splashguards and bracing for the coming Penndot pothole and salt winter abuse (Catalunya wheels are snugly in the garage for the winter).

      changed out the cam follower:







      considering i've got 90k on the clock i'm damn impressed....
      I did have the timing belt changed 17k miles ago, maybe they changed it out? didn't say it on the service receipt tho.

      guess i'm lucky

      Last week I got an euroswitch since I did the LED’s and then Saturday I put the chrome inserts on the grill as I saw a thread that give that wonderful idea and then Tuesday I got a hold of these Detroit wheels

      What do you think? Sorry for the crappy pictures, I will take good ones once I give her a wash!

      Thanks!! and no its not dinoc, its the best outdoor vinyl(according to the company where i got it). All i know is that its 3m and the only reason i got glossy instead of matte black is that since its my gf's dad's company, he was printing it for free. they ran out of matte laminate and only had the glossy so beggars cant be choosers lol. I like the glossy black and the reason for it is because my rack in going on soon and i dont want my binding scratching up my roof. after the winter im gonna rip it off and redo it since it looks so good! and also i didnt wing it lol, i wrapped race cars over the summer with this company so i had some practice. under the cheap DIYs thread i posted a short DIY and material list.


      Thanks for all the complements again guys. I'm actually surprised that the glossy looks that good. and im also content with my 2am wrap job lol

      car looks great, i like the roof, and i think it looks better with a gloss as thats how factory 'pano' roofs look.

      how much of a difference was it between stage 1 and stage 2? Did the dp + software make a good increase or just soso... was it like going from stock to stage 1 flash?

      i feel like the engine doesnt have to rev as high to get the power. and the tires lose traction when i hit the gas @ 40mph!!!! its that much more power and i love it! its really a no brainer if youre looking to do it without cat. http://www.etektuning.com/products/A...p-to-2010.html


      o yea supacat i forgot to take more pics i'll do that tomorrow

      replaced 2 out of the 3 exhaust hangers. Need to order the rear "Y-shaped" one...

      before, the exhaust used to rattle on the suspension.

      Now it rattles much less... replacing the final one will tighten up the exhaust even more

      I washed mine...not sure why. The car is not on most favorite list. Oh well. It is cleaned and will look good when she goes to the shop once again for tranny shift issues.

      Sounds like Valve Body issues...let me know if you need some help on finding places to rebuild the unit better than factory (not performance either, just an OEM rebuild with better quality solenoids).

      I appreciate the offer. I'm under CPO warranty still. VW can do what they need to do with it. Call me when it's ready!

      Took car to dealer because it had "steering column lock fault" message. They replaced the immobilizer module under warranty. However, when driving home I noticed I couldn't see my LED's in the reflection of the car in front of me. They must have done some vag-com work as my led's are now not on as my drl's. They only come on when I turn on my headlights. Called the dealer and they are going to try to fix them later in the week. Now I just have to find the thread w/ the coding again.

      Battery decided it was time for a permanent nap today with around 65K on the clock.

      Replaced it.

      Im doing my Hids tomorrow and installing my optima redtop after changing the battery terminal.

      yesterday I installed Leds in the lower front directionals. The leds came off a beetle and they were the factory sidemarkers. I popped the clear covers off and dremeled out a small section to slide them into the directionals. wired them in as drls and they look good.
