      I have also seriously considered retrofitting the rear-fog, as safety is a great concern.

      You should let me know when you eventually find a solution.

      Thank you sir!

      Looks good, I am definitely going to get one of these

      I need to get a daily too. I don't even care if its a POS, I just want something to beat around and so I don't rack up as much miles on my R.

      Thanks guys! I enjoy mods that have form and function.

      So thats probably the theme/direction I will be taking my car.

      and keeping on topic with that. My next mod is homelink system for the R32

      I have always loved the built in garage door opener on my mothers Jeep, and I really wanted this feature for the .:R. So with some searching I came up with this solution. In my opinion its even better than the homelink visor. About $30 off of eBay and takes less than 30 minutes to install.

      Best of all it looks completely OEM.

      pic borrowed from Steve99's thread


      Definitely going to enjoy this mod, and I'll let you guys know how it works out.

      No major updates as of right now. But I will have some very soon.

      As for minor updates. My sister sent me these from Germany:

      Keychain:



      Suede Hat:




      The rear clip:



      The Inside VW emblem:




      Sometime this week I will be purchasing the homelink garage door opener. horribleR posted the link if you want one, thank you sir. I will repeat said link here for you guys

      I will also be purchasing the OEM iPod integration for the monsoon radio. So that will be a very nice add on.

      So my next major update will have a full write up of the installation of both (with pics), and my review.

      Entry #002

      A LOT of stuff came in from ECS Tuning a couple of days ago, and today, with a little motivation I installed the first item: OEM iPod Integration

      Kit contents:


      So the install was much easier than I had anticipated, everything went smoothly until I attempted removing the glove box. I didn't realize it was somehow connected to the center console. I assumed it was just a stubborn clip and I ended up cracking some plastic on the upside its in a place you can't see, and it seems that the glove-box is still held securely in place.

      Picture of cracked plastic:



      As I said, other than that the install went very smoothly.

      I connected my iPhone 4, which doesn't charge but it plays music which was the main goal, so I'm happy.

      Pic of phone not charging and playing music:



      Then I connected my iPod classic, that charges and plays music

      So I think I'm just going to keep that stowed away in my glove box, much easier than having to plugin/unplug my phone every time I enter/exit the car.

      I haven't gotten much time to play around with it so I can't really say much, but it works.

      I can say one thing. The sound quality is eleventy billion times better than the stupid cassette garbage.

      Here's some pics of after the install:

      Thanks guys!

      I talked to the dealership today and they are going to call a rep out to take a look at my bumper ripples, to see if I can get them repaired through Volkswagen!
