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.

Definitely going to enjoy this mod, and I'll let you guys know how it works out.
As for minor updates. My sister sent me these from Germany:
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.

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
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.

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.

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:

Its the old 12V charging system.
This should help:
